Thanks and a Sneak Peek of a New Product!


This is a little Thank You treat I made a few of today. I used the new (fabulous) Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits. I just used the envelope piece, along with a piece of Pistachio Pudding card stock. It's so awesome - you run it through the Big Shot, and it's all cut AND scored for you!! 

I used a couple Glue Dots to quickly adhere the bottom flap. Then I added a piece of Natural Chevron Ribbon around the middle. (Love that ribbon!)
 
I stamped 'ticket no.' from That's the Ticket in Crumb Cake ink, and punched it out with the Ticket Duo punch. And I also stamped 'thanks' from Another Thank You (Love that this Photopolymer set made it into the annual catalog!). And I punched that out with the Ticket Duo punch also! - I Love Craft White stamped onto Kraft card stock!!

And finally I added a 4" x 6" cello bag (folded in half), with Wint O Green lifesavers!

Simple and easy - Tah dah!!

Fabulous Four Thanks!

 
I made this card for the Sketch Card Challenge over at Craft Project Central. It's a fun little, different sized card than the usual! It's a 3" x 6". The sketch was actually a portrait version, but I changed it up to a landscape version! - But I guess that's why they call it a sketch, and not a copy!! You can change it up a bit to what you want to do...
Here's the sketch that you'll find over at Craft Project Central. And there's directions if you click HERE. If you hop on over and play along you can win a free subscription!

Paper Pumpkin Fun at Class!


I'm loving the Paper Pumpkin kits these last few months! To be honest, I quit getting them for a while. But the quality and projects are sooo much better now! And it's so fun to get a nice surprise in the mail!

This card and gift box below are both from the July Paper Pumpkin kit. The kit came with six cards and envelopes, and six gift boxes with tags. 

So everyone at class got to make one of each of these! (Plus a couple other past Paper Pumpkin projects)

Super fun!! If you're interested in Paper Pumpkin - now's the time!! It's half off for the first two months if you join by September 10th. That's only $9.97 a month - can't go wrong for that price!! Click HERE to go to Paper Pumpkin's website. Use PROMO Code HALFOFF2, and don't forget to choose me as your demonstrator! :)
