Wow, it seems like forever since I've blogged last. Needless to say, I have been a little distracted by that new little grandson of mine. I mean really, what would you rather do? Hold a newborn baby, or play with paper? I know they are both great choices, but the baby wins for me everytime....lol.
Since I had club fast approaching I did have to put the baby down and get some crafting done. These are the 3 projects we made on Thursday night.
This one is a cute little box/note card. It holds Hershey nuggets on the one side, with a little note card on the other side. What a fun gift to give for ANY holiday or birthday celebration..
For this project I made it with two different front decorations. The options are limitless, and up to you and your imagination.
Here it is with the little note that is tucked inside, out so you can see the stamping on the bottom of it. Here it is with the front flap cut at an angle, with a little more decoration on the front with some extra leaves stamped and cut out and glued to the front. And the inside was stamped a little differently. The ladies just loved these little treats. I have to say that I first saw this cute little treat on Lisa Martz's blog and she sent me to splitcoaststampers for the directions. So, here is the link to get the directions.http://http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/treatboxcard/ if you would like to make some of these cute little treats too. This was one of the two cards we made as well. I got this adorable idea from Dawn Olfcheske's blog. She called it the peek a boo card. I think this would make such a cute card for a child's birthday or a Christmas card too. Again, the possiblities are endless. For the video tutorial to make this cute card, click on the DoStamping link on my sidebar. You should check out all her cute stuff, she's really talented.Then the last card we made, was a card I made at my upline's meeting in September.
This is what it looks like closed.....and when you open it up.....Isn't it cute? Again, we were talking about all the different ways you could use this design to make other cards.
I don't know if you can tell, but the smallest and the largest circles were ran through the Big Shot with the polka dot embossing folder.
I just love this stamp set Gently Falling that we used.
I need to get started on my Christmas card class that I am getting ready for soon too. It's just sooooooo hard to focus when I hear those sweet little newborn noises just calling for Grandmas's attention. I'm hearing them now.....oh my goodness.....gotta go!!!!
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a wonderful day.
