Greeting Card Holder

As part of a baby shower gift, I made fifteen "Thank You" cards for the mother to be. I used the "Baby, We've Grown" set from Stampin' Up! and made each card different (scroll to bottom of post to see all fifteen). I then needed a nice way to present the cards and found a really nice tutorial with step-by-step instructions from Amy Kolling. Since I had so many cards with raised surfaces I had to modify her design which ultimately created a holder 3" thick.

OWH - Sketch #247

Here is this week's card for Operation Write Home's sketch #247. For this card I used Stampin' Up's new "Baby, We've Grown" set. I also made 15 variations of this card to give as a baby shower gift. I'll be posting those soon.

Movie Ticket Holder

Before Christmas I bought a bunch of movie tickets from Costco and as luck would have it they did not arrive in time to give as gifts. So I decided to create movie ticket holders to give as thank you gifts throughout the year. The base is made from a standard number 8 tag die. All the cardstock is from SU.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2015 (Jan)

I hope all of you are having a great start to the New Year. This is officially the first crafty thing I've done in 2015 and I'm so happy to be participating in Tim's monthly tags for the 4th year in a row.  For those of you that may be visiting my blog for the first time you should know that I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I try to use all SU products when possible. For Tim's January tag I used all SU products including stamps, ink, cardstock, vellum, buttons, and ribbon.  If you're interested in seeing my year end summary for previous years you can click here: 2014, 2013, and 2012.

12 Tags of 2014 - Year In Review

Last year was my third year participating in Tim Holtz's monthly tag challenge. As many of you know I try to use Stampin' Up! products when possible so I have to do a lot of improvising when using Tim's techniques. Needless to say I am always thrilled with the results and love the extra challenge. Below are my tags starting with January. Enjoy!
