Blue Envelope Card

Here we go again...I needed a second Thank You card for my mom and I really like how the last one turned out.  So, I used the same paper and the same card design for this card.  

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Making Memories (Chloe); All Embellishments are Making Memories (Chloe); Punch: SU (Petite Curly Label); Stamps: SU (Daring Adventure & Pretty Petites); Ink: TH (Dried Marigold & Faded Jeans); Embossing Folder: PC (Stylized Flowers); Misc: Scor-Tape

Orange Envelope Card

My Mom asked me to make her a couple of thank you cards.  She is picking them up next week and I've left it to the last minute...mostly because I haven't had that much time lately.  Over at ScorPalPals they have an Envelope Card challenge going on so I thought I'd do one of those.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Making Memories (Chloe); All Embellishments are Making Memories (Chloe); Punch: SU (Petite Curly Label); Stamps: SU (Daring Adventure & Pretty Petites); Ink: TH (Dried Marigold & Faded Jeans); Embossing Folder: PC (Stylized Flowers); Misc: Scor-Tape

Purse Gift Card Holder

Over the summer I signed up to join an exchange.  I love exchanging with this group of ladies as there is so much talent in the group.  For this exchange we had to chose a holiday and make a gift card holder for it.  Fast foward to now...I left it to the last minute ... again... My biggest problem was to pick a holiday.  In the end I pick some paper that I really liked and had lots of and went ahead and just made a gift card holder.  I decided that the holiday would be "Just Cause".  As for the pattern for this gift card purse, I got it several years ago from my friend, she had scored the paper for me and gave me all the pieces, but I had never actually put it together.  I was excited to give it a try.  The purse is super simple to make and it was easy to make lots.  I did go looking for a tutorial for it so I could share.

Supplies: Paper: Making Memories (Sabrina), Bazzill & SU (Very Vanilla); Stamps: SU (Tiny Tags, Fabulous Phrases, Happy Harmony); Punch: SU (Modern Label, Jewelry Tag, 3/4 Circle, 5 Petal Flower, Fancy Flower); Ink: TH (Victorian Velvet) & Versamark; Embossing Powder: Stampendous (Detail Black); Ribbon: Celebrate It; Brads: Recollections; Rhinestions: Recollection; Misc: Scor-Pal.

A Birthday Card for an Uncle

My youngest daughter shares her birthday with one of her Uncles.  A few years ago we started sending him a card to celebrate with him.  I recently picked up some new paper that I thought would work great for Male cards, and it was really fun to work with.
