Lucky to Have you

2014_11_07DSCI0912 Today’s post is a super creative 18th birthday gift that Blair made for her daughter Elizabeth’s 18th birthday.  It is a legal gift now that she is 18 and lottery tickets are legal for her. It is a clever concept to use 18 lottery tickets to make the 4 tier birthday cake that Elizabeth wanted.  Blair did not have time to make the actual 4 tier cake so instead made a cake from the lottery tickets while waiting for her daughter to show up for the surprise birthday party her friends threw for her. Adorable!

Smile holder

2014_10_13IMG_3647 Today’s post is a card and a gift card holder all in one!  I used the Stampin Up envelope punch board #133774. This was one of the projects we made a couple of months ago at my envelope punch card class.  The DSP is the now retired I am me Stampin Up DSP paper collection.  The gift card pocket is a wrap created using the Stampin Up envelope punch board. The sentiment is from the Happy Day (retired) stamp set and then cut using the Chalk Talk Framelit #129983.  The banners are punched using the Banner #1333519 punch and attached to the Calypso Coral Bakers Twine.

Fun Gift Card

2014_09_19_IMG_4929 2014_09_19_IMG_4931Today’s post is a shows a great way to decorate the Stampin Up gift card enclosures #136662.  Each pack of gift card enclosures is a pack of 10 precut. prescored, gift card enclosures from Kraft cardstock. They are ready to decorate and add a gift card inside.  I use the fun Sweet Taffy DSP#133693 not only because it coordinated with my Starbucks birthday gift card but I think the paper screams birthday fun!  I added a tag made using the Scallop Tag Topper #133324 and accented it with a layered flower punched from the Petite Petals #133322 and the Itty Bitty Accents #133787 punches.  I added the sentiment from the Yippee Skippe stampset #131344 an tied it closed with a piece of Hello Honey 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon #133671.

Make a Wish Gift Card Holder

2014_08_12IMG_3638 I recently had a workshop where all the projects featured the envelope punch board.  I bought the punch board months ago and never used it so I decided to build my workshop around it and was truly surprised by how much you could do with it.  A simple google on how to use the envelope punch board got me super excited and created a great workshop.  This  gift card holder is a direct CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from a You Tube Video I saw during my research.

The background paper is from this past Sale-A-Bration and is no longer available but the banner is cut from the Banners framelit #132173 and the Perfect Pennants #133230 stamp set.

Who stole Christmas?

2013_12_26_grinchgiftcards In Whoville they say – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day. And then – the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two and so did Blair when she made these adorable Grinch giftcard holders for her corpsmen.  They loved them so much that they have them hanging in their workspace.  But then again who does not love the Grinch?  Blair made these using her favorite Big Shot die – the top note#113463.  She used Circles for the eyes and the beloved word window punch #119857 for the brows.  She textured the brim of his hat with the petals a plenty folder #116824 and hand drew his face.  She added a pocket on the backside using 1/2 a top note to tuck the gift card in.
