Quick Gift Card / Money / Voucher Holder - With Carols Of Christmas


I've been finishing off my Christmas preparations by creating some Gift Card / Money / Voucher Holders.

I make these every year and they are really quick and simple to do. I just change how I decorate them.

This year I used the Carols of Christmas bundle and a sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.

To make these you need to start of with a half sheet of card. Score this with the longer side at the top at 3 1/2" and 7". Add glue to the side edges of the smaller section and fold this up to form a pocket to hold the money/voucher .... and you are done. Decorate the front as you wish.


I also added a panel inside so you could write a message.

Sweet Cupcake - Final Class Card


Good Morning! Today's card is the final one we created in my recent Sweet Cupcake class.

I used one of the Stitched Shapes Square framelits to create the White mat in the background. It's fairly simple to create rectangles with these :o)

The three dots after the stamped sentiment were added using the Dapper Denim marker.

The three steps of the cake topper were stamped using 1. Dapper Denim, 2. Dapper Denim stamped 'off' and 3. Soft Sky.

The base uses 1. Soft Suede, 2. Crumb Cake and 3. Sahara Sand - I kept this the same for all the cards.


I used the Marbled background stamp on all the cards for this class. I really like this stamp just inked up using Sahara Sand, but I think it could look really good with a mix of colours too ..... I feel another 'play' coming on soon! :o)

The plain Vanilla toppers were embossed using the Seaside embossing folder.


The complete class :o)

Merry Little Labels - Tags And Box



On the first Wednesday of each month, I hold a Team Training meeting for all the members of my Stampin' Up! Team.

Each meeting has to include crafting and I enjoy designing little projects for my lovely ladies to make.

This month it was all about Tags :o)

We created 15 Tags altogether and the first part of this project involved decorating one of our lovely Pizza Boxes to hold them all.  

The first 5 Tags all used images from the Merry Little Labels stamp set. These were each inked up using our Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin' Markers, so took a little time to complete.


The second set of 10 Tags took no time at all to do! They are really quick and simple to create! These were an idea from Dena Albee. Images from the Oh What Fun stamp set were used to complete these.
