Gift Card Holder

I saw this design over on Becky Roberts sight I just changed up the colors to fit the bags I have made for Rylan and Trace's friends and their teachers. The boys go back to school August 9th and I thought this was the perfect design to place a gift card for their new teachers.

The first day of school design was cut using the cricut cartridge Locker talk. It was then placed on a Stampin Up die cut Top Note.

You will see the bags soon! (I had to make 38 of them so I'm not quite down yet!)


This is Papa's birthday card! The boys informed me that since Papa loves golf we just had to make him a card with golfing! So I decided to take on my first spinner card! Believe it or not it came out just right!
I used Stampin Up bashful blue card stock for the back ground. The golf had to look like it was on the "green" so I used Stampin Up certainly celery card stock.
The golf ball and the golfer were cut on the cricut using the Sports Mania cricut cartridge. I then used stickles to enhance the golf ball.
The Happy Birthday stamp is stamped in chocolate chip and it comes from the stamp set Look Who's Turning.

Picnic Basket

I bought this picnic carry all at Dollar General for all of $6.00. However, it of course had its faults! When I tried to put forks in it they fell straight through the back. I decided I needed to quickly come up with something to spruce up the $6.00 basket to make it work for me instead of letting it go to waste!
So here's what I did:
I used Close to Cocoa Stampin up card stock for the back ground and the letter B (for Butler of course!)
The Pink oval was cut from the Mother's Day 2010 Cricut Cartridge. I used a scrap of pink passion stampin up paper I found in my scrap box!
The three flowers were punched with a stampin up punch and then slightly peeled apart and I then used a sponge to dab on pink passion ink. To add a little accent to the three flowers I added a small pearl in the center.
The B was cut on Close to Cocoa Stampin Up card stock using the Ashlyn's Alphabet Cricut Cartridge.
The ribbon was from Hancock Fabrics. They recently had a 50% sale on ribbon by the spool so I stocked up on super cute ribbon!
The stamp in the bottom right corner is stamped using Stampin Up Chocolate Chip. The stamp comes from the Picnic Parade Hostess set from the 2009-2010 Stampin Up Catalog.
