Envelope Punch Board

Have you tried the Stampin'Up! ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD?

It is so FUN and so easy.  :).  I made these in less than 10 minutes. It took me longer to decide on paper.   You can make up to 66 different envelope sizes.

Oh the possibilities are endless.  
Gift card holders and odd sized cards with my leftover cardstock.

All in the colors and paper that I want.  :)

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you!

Busy Bag Swap

This weekend I participated in a busy bag swap.  No, I do not have small children of my own but I do have a granddaughter, God children, and several nieces/nephews and friends so I am always looking for handmade gift ideas.

I utilized the new full wood mount cases #127551, 4 for $6.95

The Deco Labels Collection FrameLits #130102

Circle punch & match box die (retired) but one of my favorite boxes.

Then went on a hunt for objects that fit in the box and matched my colors.

I was initially thinking of punching various shapes in coordinating colors but went with the 3d items instead.

I had so much fun putting this project together and it was a hit at the Busy Bag Swap.

Thank you for looking.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
thank you!

Stamp-a-Stack Reminder 9/22 and Baby Shower Gift

REMINDER:  This Sunday, 9/22 Birthday Cards Stamp-a-Stack
more information:   HERE
I hope to see you there!  :-)

In case you didn't know......I LOVE photography too!  So what better way than to combine my paper crafting with photography for a baby shower gift.                                                                                       There are so many ideas to capture your babies monthly photos.  So I thought I would create my own.

Instructions Included:

I started with a Stampin' Up! photo album and wrapped it with ribbon (It's a Girl!).  Then using My Digital Studio (MDS) I created the monthly markers (circles) that they can use in the monthly photos.  The first page of the Album is to be used as the Announcement Page and baby's first photo.

And of course it needs to be completed with a personalized tag.

I hope you enjoyed!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
thank you!

Holiday happiness Catalog Blog Hop

Holiday Happiness Catalog Blog Hop

The Holiday Catalog has so much to offer.  I'm especially enjoying the "Christmas Messages" Stamp Set.  #131790, $28.95 It is a set of 9 stamps.  The base card is Old Olive Paper.

I stamped the Joyful Tidings stamp in VersaMark Pad #102283, $7.50 and then embossed with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder #109131, 4.75.  The 1/2 oz. of embossing powder sure goes a LOOONNNGGGG  way, this container has lasted me a couple of years now and still seems full.  :-)  GREAT Purchase! 
I then punched my embossed piece with the extra-large oval punch  #119859, $16.95 and adhered to the Deco Labels Collection framelit #130102, $24.95 that I had prepared and embossed with the designer frames embossing folder #123130, $8.95
The cherry cobbler striped Designer Series paper is from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack.  #132181, $6.95 US.  The paper pack comes with 48 sheets, 24 each of 2 double-sided designs.  4 1/2" x 6 1/2"  They are the perfect size for scrapbooking. 

Flowers are punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack #118309, $16.95.  The pack includes 3 punches.  I scrunched them up like I was going to through them in the trash and then adhered them with glue dots #103683, $4.95.  300 dots each at 3/16" diameter.
And of course all the BLING.  Glimmer Paper for the banner #124005, $4.95 and Rhinestone Basic Jewels #119246 on the flowers, $4.95. 
You can place your order:  HERE on my 24/7 online Store
