A cute gift card holder

Here is a gift card wallet.  Perfect for giving the men in your life a great gift card and not having the packaging be too cutesy.  So easy.  It really is a wallet, complete with enough pockets for up to 4 gift cards.  Got lots of kids who want to give Dad a gift card, well here is your answer to packaging them up.  

Some things I have been working on.

Instead of making a bunch of individual posts, I am going to lump my recent projects into one post.  I have been busy making some birthday cards with the SAB set from this past Winter:Birthday Whimsy. I met with a new customer here in Alabama a few weeks ago and we made these sweet cards.  So easy.  I have been making some cards for friend of mine who teaches piano lessons back in Roanoke. She just found out she is pregnant so I made the Baby is Brewing card with a packet of chamomile tea to calm her first trimester stomach.  This is her second child. We are thrilled for her.  I also made some cards for the realtors who have helped us with this move.  I made a set of cards and packaged them nicely in a PapertreyInk plastic box (love those boxes).  We also have friends who just had a third child. Their story is neat because it took them so long to have their first child (born just a month before our first), and their second child is a few months older than our second too.  I also made a little photo album for them but I forgot to get a picture of that.   I used the bitty on board album that I have had forever.  Let's see I have also made some albums for my boys' pictures, but I'll post a picture of that later.  Now I hope to make some interior decorating pieces for our new house.  I got some great canvases from a garage sale next door.  I hope they turn out like I am wanting.  Anyway, just thought I would share.

Pocket Silhouettes: Card templates

Here are the card templates for the wonderful Pocket Silhouettes set by Stampin' UP! (Don't you love those precious little fingers in the first two pictures.  My sweet John helped hold the cards down so I could photograph them.).   Oh how I love this set.  It is so easy to use and soooo versatile.  Can we say gorgeous no layer cards.  Don't you just love these.  It's a great set to use with white ink, or white embossing powder.  And of course the lovely Urban Garden designer paper is great, but don't count out the new Autumn leaves paper from the Holiday mini catalog that I showcased on one of the cards.  Again, I CASED some cards from Splitcoast, but others I totally changed the papers and elements.  Have fun making these, and remember if you order this set from me, you will get the cutting dimensions for these cards for FREE.
