Floral Purse Card Set!

This beautiful purse has a set of six cards with envelopes inside. There are two card designs, and they are both made with the Beautiful Bunch stamp set, Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack, and Fun Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to coordinate with the purse. The purse is made with Coaster Board, and there are two pockets inside to hold three of each card design and envelopes. This would make a wonderful gift and a great card class.

This cute project was made by Christy Fulk. It is the Bonus project for the month of December over at Craft Project Central. Bonus projects can be obtained by subscribing to two or more months in a row, putting the Craft Project Central badge on your blog, or by referring a friend and when they subscribe, letting us know.

Ornament for a Card/Tag Challenge!

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! I guess I did, because I had great intentions of making this tag as a Christmas tag or ornament a week or so ago. And then I got carried away with all the prepping and planning for Christmas. So today, being the day after Christmas, I decided to have a jump start for Valentine's Day! :)
 
And here's the sketch that I used from over at Craft Project Central. Like I said, it was made for Christmas, but it was fun to adapt it for a Valentine's tag too. And even better than just an ornament or tag, it makes a great wine bottle gift tag!

It's not too late for you to go over to Craft Project Central and join the Sketch Challenge! Check it out HERE!

Snow Day Party!

Unless you live near the equator – or Florida – you’re going to have snow in the winter.  It’s inevitable, so you might as well enjoy it and have a party!  Here are some fun – and “out of the box” - ways to use the Gift Box Punch Board and All Is Calm suite from the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog to make party favor boxes and a basket of snow party refreshments.  Add a fun invitation and a sparkly snow banner using the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit, and you’ll have the best party ever.  If you live in an area that doesn’t get much snow, or your party is in the spring or summer, it’s easy to switch it to a “no snow” or beach party just by changing the designer series paper and colors.

Monthly Memories Album!

Let’s face it . . . not every stamper is a scrapbooker, but we all have dates, events, activities, milestones, etc. that we’d like to record and remember.  This Monthly Memories Album, which can stand on its own, is comprised of pockets—one for each month—with at least one card in each pocket to record (with journaling and/or photos) special events.  Of course, photos and mementos can be included or attached to the front (and/or back) of each pocket.  The whole family can be involved recording a memory about something special for each month!  The handy gift bag features a really neat way to make sure the card doesn’t get lost or separated from the gift and, of course, there’s a gift box for the album!  This is an especially perfect gift for a New Year’s party hostess, or host your own party and give this ensemble to each of your guests!
