Leadership Swap

Posted: Friday, December 31st, 2010 @ 2:20 pm in Projects | No Comments »

Here’s another one.  I used the Button Button stamp set from the new Occasions minicatalog.  I didn’t have the matching designer paper, so I downloaded it!  The digital download includes a sheet of button packs and a sheet of stitches.  I just trimmed them down for my swap cards.  You can order from the Occasions mini (including […]

I don’t have anything new today because I’m working mainly on Leadership swaps.  Here’s a fun idea for a gift card or business card holder that I made. Here are instructions on how to make the label LABEL Here are instructions for the card CARD

Filled with Love 3

Here’s my next sample made with the Filled with Love bundle that is currently on sale.  You just need the bundle, Real red cardstock, ink plus a couple of punches to make this card.  It would look nice in pink too.

Here is my second card made with the current special.  This is a CASE of the sample in the winter minicatalog, simplified.  I like the color blocking technique and the addition of the cute (and FREE) bitty buttons.  Dimensionals make the white on white punchouts really stand out.

I hope you had a great Christmas!  Now I’m moving on to some Valentine’s Day projects.  The current SU special is a great bundle of products (details of the sale are in an earlier post).  I had fun making some square cards.  I just took the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card and instead made it […]

Here are a couple of ways to present your Christmas treats.  The first is a cracker made with the waffle paper.  Next is a box made with the Holly Jolly Christmas DSP.  Both projects use the Tags till Christmas set which is only available untl Jan 3.

Here is the inside of the mini-album that I posted yesterday.  The inside is basically a 12×12 sheet that is slit and folded in quarters.  This photo shows it partially open.    Each section has a piece of the Deck the Halls DSP.

Christmas Fabric Ideas

Here are a couple projects made with the Deck the Halls Fabric.  The first is a Christmas mini- album with fabric bow.  The idea came from a newsletter I received a while back.  For the card I just fused the fabric to the card base.  Both projects use the coordinating buttons and seam binding.  Tomorrow I will […]

Splitcoaststampers challenge

Every once in a while I have time to do one of the excellent challenges on splitcoaststampers where I am a moderator.  This was a sketch challenge for the Fan Club.  The general theme was Falala (music) so I dug out my music wheel and some bell stamps from Jolly Bingo Bits.  For the sentiment […]
