Christmas Gift Card Holders

Last night I went hunting on the website and found these cute little gift card holders they hold those credit card type vouchers that you get from Bunnings, Kmart, Myer etc. They really quick and easy to make. I have used two of my new Stampin Up stamp sets. Season of Joy & Priceless. Which I love love love.

So anyway I made some of these little cards. I guess the idea is to try and make giving a gift voucher a little more personal than just throwing one in any old santa card. I tried to make some more masculine ones since I find it so hard to buy for guys. A lot of the time I end up getting vouchers. Let me know what you think these are the first 4 I made.

Season of Joy stamp from Stampin Up looks gorgeous with gold embossing.

The inside holds the gift card with a tiny cut on the fold for the card to slot into.

Swirls embossed with holographic glitter powder. I love this stuff.

These stamps are from my Stampin up Pricelist set. They are so pretty.

Please feel free to leave your comments. :)

Christmas Gift Box

I made this matching box last weekend to match the Christmas Baubble I made. Belinda loved it and bought both items :) Very happy about that. These boxes are very easy to make its an Origami Gift Box. I watched an online video by Starofmay.

Here is the finished product...

Also I made some Gift Card Holders last night but I will come back to show those.
Thanks for dropping by. Please leave a your feedback...

Christmas Decorations

I have been crafting up a storm this weekend finishing off my Christmas card orders. I have so far sold 22 cards, 9 tags and 2 special orders. One of the special orders was this Christmas decoration. I am so pleased with how it has turned out. These baubbles are very time consuming as they are fiddly. I have sealed this one inside and out with a matt satin coating to protect the paper from yellowing and hopefully make it a bit more sturdy and long lasting. I hope Belinda likes it... it really is a handmade original.

I hope you like it too. Please leave me your comments and if you have any links for other Christmas ideas for me I would love to see them. Still 4 more weekends till Christmas :)
Thanks for popping by.

Stampin Up

I had a stampin up party yesterday and it was lots of fun. Now I have to decide what to buy and what not to buy. I could easily spend $300 but that would be crazy. Will have to tone it down a bit since Christmas is just around the corner. :) Its that time of year for parties I am going to a tupperware party today then maybe a creative memories one the following week. Check out the new creative memories stuff apparently is has changed a lot since I first started scrapping 4 yrs ago. I am on the hunt for a new album. Not sure what I am looking for yet. I know that when I see the one I want I will know. :)

Lots and Lots of Christmas Cards For Sale

I am selling these cards for $5 each. They are handmade with love and are all my original designs. On some of them I have used Stamp it up stamps and others a variety of scrap book paper & embellishments. I hope you like them.

This one is a bit blurry didn't scan very well because of the coloured Bells hanging off the gold cord. This is one of my favourites.

Its been 1 year since last post ...almost

How funny I have just been thinking that I should fix up my blog since I have made a whole heap of Christmas cards that I am hoping that I can sell..some!! I have changed the template colour scheme and I have just realised that it has been almost 1 year since I actually started this blog. Maybe this post will be my last post now until November 2009!

I have had a fun day today and a realisation that my DS Ben is growing up. I purchased his school uniforms today for Prep starting in January 2009. It is so cute - but don't tell him I told you he is cute. He is handsome and a big boy now going to prep. :)

Anyway I hope to be back soon to figure out how to put pictures on here! Just gotta put on dinner for the hungry boy.
