Giving $$ this year?

I have a few nephews and nieces in the teen years.  I never know what to get them for Christmas so I give the gift that keeps on giving.....CASH!!!!  A couple of years ago, this was a project at one of my Holiday Stamp Camps.


The dimensions of this money holder are 9 1/4 x 6 1/2 and I scored it at 3 and 6 1/4.  I used the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper, Little Felt Flurries, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon, Build-A-Brads and the stamp set Holiday Collection from the Country Living Stampin' Kit.


This photo shows how I cut the iniside flap with my Tabletop Paper Cutter


I added a few Rub-Ons to the inside since they are on sale this month I don't have to hoard them!!!  NO, they aren't getting $100, but I thought it looked cool in the money holder!!

I am putting the finishing touches on another money holder and will post it tomorrow!!  Stay Tuned!!


Crank out your Christmas Cards - session 2

Here are the cards from my 2nd session of the Crank out your Christmas Cards class.  The gals made eight of each design for a total of 16 more Christmas cards to add to their stash.


This card uses the Snow wheel and a greeting from All Holidays.  We ran our Whisper White through the Big Shot using the Snowflake die.  We randomly dabbed a Bashful Blue Craft Spot and heat set it with the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

No craft ink or EP, just a snowflake. :-)

and this


This is a take off from my Founder's Circle swap shown inTHIS POST.  It uses the Spotlight on Christmas set and a greeting from Holidays & Wishes.  The centers of the poinsettias are done with a mini glue dot smooshed in our Green Bead duos.  We finished it off with some Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon.

I am still offering ribbon and paper splits, you can see and purchase them HERE



Holiday Collection Stampin' Kit!


Here is a card I made using only supplies in the Holiday Collection Stampin' Kit.  The chhipboard snowflake was covered in Whte Craft Ink and allowed to dry.  After it was dry, I smeared Tombow Mono Multi over the entire thing and dunked it in the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the chipboard square that is covered with the die cut designer series paper.  This snowflake really sparkles!!

The greeting is from the same kit.  The kit comes with a stamp set called Holiday Collection.

Another project created with this kit is featured in the 6th installment in my 12 weeks of Christmas newsletters.  Are you getting that??  If not, sign up in the box to the left.


Three cards, one layout

Here are three cards using basically the same suppliess and the same layout.  I love using sponges or daubers to add color the the chipboard.  This chipboard is from the Something Seasonal Chipboard set.


Big Bold Birthday, Happy Everything


A Happy Heart from the Holiday Mini Catalog


I used my Big Shot with the Snowflakes Sizzlets set and Holiday Collection from the Country Living Holiday Stampin' Kit, Click HERE to see this AWESOME kit!!!!



Holiday Treat Pouch

I had my I Wish Chipboard Scrapbook Class last weekend.  I had some extra pieces of card stock and die cuts so I put this together. 


This is a sample shown on the photo insert in the Simply Scrappin' kit and I just thought it was soooooo cute!!


Here is a side view.  I put red and green M&M's in a small cello bag and stapled it inside.  The staple is covered with my ribbon.

The I Wish kit has been so popular this year and I certainly know why, the colors and designs are so festive.
