Vintage Holly Gift Card Holder for My Pink Stamper 12 Days of Christmas-Day 5 + A Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Have you been following the 12 Days of Christmas over at My Pink Stamper?  There has been some FABULOUS inspiration with videos, challenges and prizes every day!  Don't miss out!  You still have time to head over there and enter the challenges and giveaways.

On the 5th Day of Christmas, the project featured on My Pink Stamper is by yours truly.  So I thought I would go ahead and post that here as well.

I created this gift card holder in just a few easy steps (which you can see in the video below).  These are prefect for those last minute gifts....and so easy to mass produce.

I saw the sketch idea somewhere on YouTube and I changed the dimensions, folds, etc. to make it my own.  It's great to find inspiration on the internet and then take it and make a whole new and different creation with it!  You know the best part?  It fits in a standard A2 size envelope!

And of course, every great card needs some great stamps!  I used the My Pink Stamper Biggie Christmas stamp set for the sentiment on this tag.  I thought the tag was the perfect place to feature this beautiful "Merry Christmas" stamp.  I love how the style of the font on this stamp goes so well with the elegant feel of this card.  Of course, there is another "Merry Christmas" sentiment in the Biggie Christmas set as well.  It is perfect for a more "casual" feel.

And just in time for Christmas, I've decided to have a giveaway!  Just leave a comment here on this blog post to be entered to win the My Pink Stamper Friend-tastic stamp set.  I will choose a winner using Random.org on Monday, December 26th.  Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and the true meaning of the season will be at the forefront of your heart, thoughts and activities!

Letterpress Monogram Note Card Set

Hey everyone!  Are you as busy as I am this holiday season!  Wow!  It just seems to be flying by all around me.  I'm finding myself wishing I had more time to make handmade gifts.  I have managed to eek out a few, but not too many!

This is one of the handmade holiday gifts that I have managed to squeeze in.  This is actually a project that I designed last Christmas season.  My little one has the same teacher this year, who is still raving about these cards.  So I decided to make her some more of these cards.

This card design is simple, yet stunning.  The rhinestone in the center makes it feel very special.  And these cards are flat enough that they don't require additional postage for mailing.  The ribbon lays flat, so you don't have bulk to deal with when packaging them up or mailing them!

Note card sets make fabulous teacher Christmas gifts.  They also make great gifts for your neighbors, friends and family.  I think they would also make a great wedding gift.  The Letterpress makes mass producing these little babies a snap!

I put six cards in each of the boxes.  I also include coordinating envelopes.  Tie them up with some pretty ribbon...and you have a stunning gift.

I also wanted to make sure you get the info on the Lifestyle Crafts I Made This giveaways and sweepstakes.  This week they are giving away a $500 shopping spree on LifestyleCrafts.com.  Don't miss your chance to win.  All you have to do is mention the giveaway on your Facebook page and then let Lifestyle Crafts know that you did so by posting the link on their blog.  Don't miss out! See their blog post for ways to earn extra entries.

Merry Holiday Wish Card-Featuring Lifestyle Crafts' Holiday Wish Digital Kit

Hello everyone!  It feels like ages since I've posted.  It's a busy time of the year around here!  I've been busy running around, doing Santa's errands for him, as well as working.  My house is all decorated for Christmas.  I just love this time of year.  I just wish there were more hours in every day!

My craft room has been feeling a little neglected lately.  I finally found the time today to get in there and create!  I've been dying to do it!

Today's card was made using the new Holiday Wish Digital Collection from Lifestyle Crafts.  I just love this fun and festive paper!  The best part is that it's digital...which means you can download and create NOW!  I love that! (Don't forget!  When you're shopping at Lifestyle Crafts to use COUPON CODE GLITTER for 20% off of your order.)

In the video below, I show you two cards created using the Holiday Wish Digital Collection.  Both are easy cards to make.  You could make multiples and use them for all the little gifts you give at Christmas...for teachers, neighbors, friends and family.

I'll also show you the STUNNING results you can get by printing this digital paper on KRAFT card stock!  That's right folks!  Don't limit yourself to printing your digital papers on white card stock.  While this technique may not work with all digital papers, it certainly worked on my favorite paper of the Holiday Wish collection.

I hope you find some inspiration here!  See the video below for instructions on creating these cards!

Be sure to check back in soon!  I have some fun videos planned.

Also, be sure to check the Lifestyle Crafts Blog every week.  They are having some FABULOUS, AMAZING giveaways for their "I MADE THIS" campaign.  Check it out!
