SU Cool Treats for Creating Pretty Cards Challenge # 70

April 15, 2017

I played along with the sketch at Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #70 over at

Craft Project Central.

You can play along and get a chance to win a free month’s subscription of your choice.

I am prepping for a Cool Treats Bundle Class soon and
had some of this and some of that left over with cutting the Tasty Treats DSP so I used it up! Thanks to my friend, Sandy Mott, for inspiration that fit in with the sketch, too! I love when every little scrap is used:)

*The sentiment comes for the 2017 SAB Designer Tee stamp set.

Nailed It Gift Card Holder

April 13, 2017

So sad to see the Nailed It bundle gone but those who have it can make this fun gift card holder!

I used the Serene Scenery DSP for the background on the front. I knew as soon as I saw the stamp set come out that I wanted to use that parquet wood paper!

The inside uses the B.Y.O.P. stamp set- such a great stamp set!
And it is retiring- perfect for gift card holders!

To make the base of the card, start with a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. Score at 4-1/2″, 5-1/2″ and 6-1/2″ on the 11″ side. Fold it as shown in the photo. Adhere the two folds together along where the folds are touching the table in the photo. Keep the adhesive close to the folds as photo A shows. Slide the Classic Label Punch in the middle of the top tented where the gift slot is located as seen in photo B. You will need to slide the punch about 1/8″ to the left and the to the right side of the initial punch so the gift card will fit.

I hope you will try making one of these simple holders to surprise someone who opens it!
If you do, send me a pic- I love to see what you are doing!

Craft Project Central #3

Here is another project from Craft Project Central’s April issue…

May Day Door Hanger & Accessories created by  Stephanie Purvis  

May Day might not be a big holiday in your area, but it’s always fun to put together little gift baskets to hang on your neighbor’s door to celebrate the arrival of Spring. Even if you don’t celebrate May Day, you can use this door hanger to give little gifts to your neighbors, roommates, or even your children by hanging one on their  doors for any occasion you choose! 

Hop over to Craft Project Central to subscribe to April issue and
to play along with the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge:)

Retiring List is up!!!

April 10, 2017

Some things to note:

  1.  Stampin’ Up will continue making the retiring stamps until May 22, 2017.  After that date, the stamps will be available while supplies last.

  2. The accessories are ‘while supplies last’ – some go very fast and some may appear on the Clearance Rack later but no guarantee.

  3. If you really want it, get it today!  Order online in my STORE or email me to get it ordered quickly.

  4.  The last day of the retiring products will be May 31st 2017.
