Christmas Gift Boxes

By | Christmas, Gift Ideas | No Comments

If you follow me on Facebook you know that I received a nice sized box of Christmas stamping supplies from Stampin’ Up! on Friday. My head is bursting with ideas for using them all, but here’s what I made first… some Christmas gift boxes! When I saw these Takeout Boxes in the Clearance Rack, I knew I had to get some. 6 boxes for only $2.40! Now that I’ve decorated a couple of them I think I need to order a few more packs.

Cards of Many Colors

By | Cards, Gift Ideas, Thank You Cards | No Comments

Today’s idea is brought to you by my friend Donna Penix. When she showed me this set of cards I knew that I had to share them with you. I just love when you can take one card and make it with a bunch of different colors and get a lovely set like this!! They make a great gift when you put them all together or you can always send them one by one. Donna used the 2014-2016 In Colors from Stampin’ Up! to make these cards. The colors are Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon and Hello…

When I saw this card by Jill Olsen I thought “I LOVE IT!!” I just loved the colors and design layout right away, but I thought the pom-pom trim might make it a little more difficult to mail… as in they would want to charge me more. I like to keep my cards pretty flat for mailing, but I immediately thought that this would make a great layout for a mini treat bag. And I was right!! Look what I made!!! I made a plain white bag with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Dies and Whisper White card stock, then…

Thank You Cards in Any Color

By | Cards, Gift Ideas, Product Tips | No Comments

I make more thank you cards than any other kind of card. I guess that’s good, right? Last week I was playing around with the Something Lacy stamp and my favorite color Calypso Coral and came up with this simple thank you card… Lately I’ve been shaping my greetings with punches or framelits dies (because it’s quick & easy to stamp first and then center the punch or die around the stamped image), but I just couldn’t find one that worked with a thank you stamp and looked good on this fabulous floral background. So I went back to the basics…
