Handmade Gift Card Holders Assortment

Handmade Gift Card Holders Assortment

We don’t give a lot of Gift Cards but yesterday I was busy making gift card holders.  Each year the families of our private school give gift cards to the teachers and staff.  This year I volunteered to make some handmade gift card holders.  You may recognize some of them from the Gift Card Giving Class this year and past years and others are quick variations.
The brown with red flower in the front is still my favorite I think.  The red purse in the back right with the green trim is a close second though, I’m really liking it!
Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you are getting creative with your Christmas wrapping and gift giving this year!
StampThat Christmas Party Pictures

StampThat Christmas Party Pictures

Unfortunately, I forgot to pick up the camera until people were starting to leave the Christmas Party last evening . . . . I did grab a few quick pictures that I thought you might like to see.  We had a great time eating, creating, and even singing!  I always love the Christmas parties – they’re so much fun!

I wish I had thought to use the camera earlier in the evening to show the fun cards that were created in our game and the cute little baby that came to visit us and the gift exchange and . . . . .

If you missed the party this year, I hope you’ll make your plans to join us next year!  What a great time!

 

Gingerbread Cookie Christmas Card

Gingerbread Cookie Christmas Card

I had a lot of fun with these little gingerbread men on their cookie sheet.  Aren’t they cute?  I got the idea for the cookie sheet from  someone else and couldn’t resist making my own card.  The brushed silver card stock makes a perfect cookie sheet!  It has just the right amount of shine to it to look just right for cookie baking.

I hope you will plan to join us for the StampThat Christmas Party tonight!  I’m off to continue work on the Jan-March Stampin’ Schedule (trying to get it ready for tonight but no guarantee) and of course party arrangements.  See you tonight!

Glimmer Snowflake Christmas Card

Glimmer Snowflake Christmas Card

Today I want to share my version of a card my upline made recently.  I love the Silver Glimmer Paper when combined with white and/or blue, it’s so brilliant!

Have you RSVP’d for the Christmas Party tomorrow evening?  I hope you will plan to join us!  The StampThat Christmas Party is always a favorite event of the year!

Happy Monday!

Heavenly Hosts Sing Alleluia

Heavenly Hosts Sing Alleluia

I was in an angel making mood yesterday!  As I worked the words to Silent Night kept going through my head.  Aren’t they lovely little angels?  I made 11 more angels to go with the one I showed you the other day.

Most of these will be gifts but I made this set for myself.  It might be hard to tell in the picture, but each angel has rhinestones on the dress, sleeves, sings and as a necklace.  The halo for each is a vintage faceted button.  They are so precious in real life!

This is my favorite of the three angels.  I guess it’s something about the lacy looking DSP combined with the doily dies and the beaded head that matches so well.

I hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start.  Thank you for stopping by today!

Lovely as a Tree Christmas Card

Lovely as a Tree Christmas Card

The Lovely as a Tree stamp set has been around forever, it seems, but it’s an old favorite!  I saw a Christmas card similar to this one not long ago and I wanted to make my own version.  It’s such a simple card but so lovely in its simplicity!  I think this would make a lovely card for many occasions, a winter birthday, thinking of you and more.  It’s nice to have a card idea you can make in just a matter of a couple minutes for those times when you need a last minute card.

Thank you for stopping by to visit today.  I hope you have a wonderful Friday!

It’s Time for Your Imput

It’s Time for Your Imput

I am working on the January – March 2012 stamping schedule.  Is there a class you would like to see on the schedule?  Is there something you’ve been wanting to learn how to make?  If you live long-distance, is there something you would like to see available by mail?   I want to hear how I can help you be at your most creative level  this winter.  Please take a moment to leave a comment, I would love to have your input!
