More Craft Fair Goodies :)

Aren't these things just darling? Do you have any guesses as to what they are? They are my favourite thing to make right now, super simple, super cute, and something everyone would love to receive as a little gift I am sure. Maybe this next picture will bring you closer...

Taaa Daaa! It's a gift card holder! Perfect isn't it? I just love it. Although I have already said that and this may be overkill haha. Anyways I got the idea from Kerry at Kerry's Paper Crafts who is a creative genius and full of wonderful ideas! Again the genius behind this project is the simplicity.

Card stock
Designer Series Paper
Designer Ribbon
Your choice of embellishments
Your choice of stamp sets

Instructions1. Using Stampin' Up!'s Top Note Die (#113463) and your Big Shot (#113439) cut out 2 top notes from card stock and 1 top note from designer series paper.
2. Cut one of the card stock top notes in half length wise.
3. Trim around the perforated edge of the designer series paper top note.
4. Adhere the designer series paper to the card stock top note.
5. Adhere the half piece of card stock to the backside of the other piece of card stock being careful to only put adhesive along the edges so you can still slide in your gift card when you are finished.
6. Punch a hole in the corner of your gift card holder using Stampin' Up!'s Crop-A-Dile (#108362)
7. Add a brad again using Stampin' Up!'s Crop-A-Dile
8. Add a piece of Stampin' Up! Designer Ribbon and tie into a loop.
9. Add any embellishments/stamps of your choice.
10. Add a gift card and present to someone you love :)

This is just one of the many things you can do with the Top Note Die. It is so versatile. You can also fold it in half and use it to close the top of a cellophane gift bag. I have also used it on my altered composition notebooks as title/name plate. The choices are limitless. Contact me today if you would like to purchase a Top Note Die. Don't have a big shot yet? Invest in one! It will be the best decision you ever make.

Consider hosting a workshop in your home and inviting your friends over for a night of paper crafting and stamping and you could earn your big shot for half price! Ask me how.

Hope you all have a wonderful day, and Happy Stamping.

Pretty in Pink ...

So my fellow stampers, I am so excited I am some things to share with you and I am pretty excited.

1. I have confirmed plans to participate in not one but two upcoming local Farmer's Markets/Craft Shows!! Yay! I have wanted to this for a long time and I am glad I am finally going to give it a go. The first one is in Palmerston, ON on August 27th, 2011 and the second is in Drayton, ON on September 17th, 2011. Check out my website for more details on these!

2. Not really needing to share this, but I placed a huge Stampin' Up! Demonstrator order today for all sorts of goodies, including a TON of things out of the new Holiday Mini. I cannot wait to share it with all you lovely people, I know it is only a "mini" but I have no doubt in my mind everyone will find something they love!

Anyways enough about me, please enjoy this scrapbook page I have to share with you today:

Isn't she just darling?! This is my niece, Madeline, the picture is older, Madeline is 2 1/2 now, but I just thought it went together so good! Now anyways, back to the actual page...what do you think?

I did this page with a bunch of ladies at a workshop recently, fairly new to stamping, so I didn't want to overwhelm them with too much detail.
This page measures 8x8. To make this page I started with a plain background of Whisper White Cardstock to really get the colours to pop out. Next I used the Flower Garden Embossing Folder on Blushing Bride. The colouful strips on the bottom of the page are Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper in Wisteria Wonder (one of the new In Colours) and Patterns Designer Series Paper in Melon Mambo. The Doily sare from the stamp set Delicate Doilies and were stamped in Pretty in Pink and Wisteria Wonder. The middle doily was stamped using Versamark Ink on a scrap piece of whisper white cardstock. I sprinkled Embossing Powder in Melon Mambo (new in the Summer mini, and *yay* carried over into the new Idea Book and Catalogue) onto it and used the heat gun to emboss it. I then punched it out with the scallop punch and adhered it to the page with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Happy Stamping
