onsie gift card holder

Sorry that my picture was sideways I forgot to rotate it. I got this idea when I seen a similar card at the store but they wanted 4.00 for it and I decided I could make it at home cheaper and mine would be in the colors that I needed. Well I must say it took me a little while but the finished product is pretty great if I do say so myself. I used magnets to hold the straps closed instead of velcro. Let me know what you think. It fits in an A5 envelope which is one size bigger than A2 the standard. Hope you like it.

Punched Daisies

I have been having a lot of fun with these little pieced daisies. I used a straight circle punch, a scallop circle punch and an oval scallop punch. Then add a ladybug sticker and just look how cute they are. I have made a ton of these. Very simple. Hope you have fun with them. Happy Memorial Day Everyone.


I tried to take a couple of different angle shots of this so that you can see how this card explodes open.

Pieced Ice cream cone

I am going a little paper piecing crazy lately. I now created this cute Ice cream cone with a simple rectangle, straight scallop punch and a circle punch in two sizes. TADAH!

Oriental flair

This stamp set was from Hero Arts. She was just too cute. Instead of coloring her dress in I just stamped it on decorative paper. Made the card really quick and simple. I also rubberstamped the white paper with the green flower that came in the set.

Potted flowers cont...

I started to go a little crazy with these potted cards. They are all made with regular punches. The Tulips on the left I made with an oval punch, oval scallop punch, and a circle punch. The ones on the right I had a flower punch that I punched twice and layer them. I used the scallop oval to do the leaves. I think the daisies are still my favorite. That was the first card I showed you. Hope you enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by.

Potted flowers

I have been working on these cards for a mother's day card class because I thought how perfect instead of giving flowers that will die not long after you give them, how about some flowers that will last forever and if she is a scrapbooker she can scrapbook the card later. You pull the flowers out of the pot and they are attached to a tag that has good wishes on it.

Sorry that I haven't posted for a long time. Life gets in the way sometimes. I had to post a quick picture of my sister Wendy's latest edition to her family. This is little Audry. She is 5 weeks old in this picture and is growing by leaps and bounds.

The cards are coming. The past few batches that I have done I forgot to take photos of and they were sold during my classes and the others sold at the store. I have to get into the habit of taking pictures of everything. I will get better. Thanks for stopping by.
