Christmas Goodie Bags

Gift Tote

I put together some little gift bags for a fundraising 'Car Boot Sale' that was held this morning. We all ended up sheltered in 'The Ark' safe and sound away from the pouring rain and thunder! Wow! Did the weather play up or what? Not to worry, as it was rather pleasant inside the church building and I got to talk to a few lovely ladies that enjoyed card making too.

In this example I have turned a little note tote box into a little chocolate holder. I am still wondering how I can live without the Parisian Breeze DSP after December 1st clicks around.

Project Recipe for Gift Tote -
Stamp: Cute and Curly
Cardstock: Whisper White and Parisian Breeze DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Baja Breeze DS Grosgrain Ribbon, Ribbon Originals - Valet, Medium Flat Cellophane Bags, Curly Label Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals and Sticky Strip for the best double sided adhesive ever!

Top Note Christmas Gift Bags

These little gift packs are quick and easy. The Top Note Pattern is made from the Ski Slope DSP, which is then folded in half and stapled to the Medium Flat Cellophane Bags. A stamp from 'Punches Three' (Hostess L1) is stamped onto Whisper White cardstock in Real Red, punched out with the Scallop Square Punch and attached with a Stampin' Dimensional. Voila!

These would make very cute teacher gifts and we all know that teachers deserve to be rewarded with a present at this time of the year!!!! Cough .. cough ..

Cheers, Bronwyn

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
