Card tote Class Option

I am having a card tote class at the end of July for those local to me. I think one of the options will be this set I just finished. 
I LOVE the color combo on this set and the texture that the crimped background creates. 

This card was cased directly from a card here   and she even has a video tutorial for it. The flower stamp used is now retired but there is one that matches the punch in the new catalog. 

If you have not yet seen the new catalog you can look at the PDF of it by clicking on the cover at the top right hand side of my blog.

 Some stamp sets used for the sentiments are retired but can be changed very easily.

Painted Petals Birthday Cards

These cards were sent out to some wonderful people for their birthdays this month.  I saw a version of this card on Pinterest and knew I had to make some. Sometimes you see a card and when you recreate it, it just doesn't turn out quite as cute as you were hoping it would. In this case it was the opposite. I loved it even more than the original one I had seen. I am not sure but I think it was because the blackberry is just so stunning with that green ribbon and those flowers.

Perfect Peacock Gift Set

My daughter told me her teacher this year likes peacocks.  So when she was flipping through my stamp catalog a few months ago and saw the perfect peacock stamp set, she said we needed to get it and make something for her teacher.   I wanted to make an altered journal with it and stamped and colored the images a couple months ago but that was all the further I got with it. I just couldn't find the right paper to use. While shopping at walmart for some tulle to make an american girl doll tutu,  (pics of that tomorrow) I saw this roll of peacock ribbon by offray! I had to get it. Wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it, but knew I needed that ribbon.  It turned out to be perfect for this set!

The normal box in a bags usually hold small 3x3 cards or notecard sets. I wanted a bag that would not only be large enough to hold a full size set of cards, but I also wanted to put the journal in it. I ended up making it big enough to add the stamp set also, but forgot to include the candy I wanted to put in :(

The little tag hanging on the front was cased from Chiaki Haverstick on her satchel bags. 

I do not have a step by step picture tutorial ready yet but it is pretty simple. 

Cut a piece of cardstock (bottom of your bag) 7 1/2 x 5
score each side at 1/2 and cut one side of the tab, fold in and glue. 

The dsp or cardstock for the sides of your bag are 6x12. You will need two this size. Place your sticky strip or other tape along one edge of the bottom and place around the bottom of your box starting in the middle on one small side. 

Decorate as you wish. It is easier to add the bottom border before attaching to the bottom of the box. 

Looking back, I think I would have added something along the top edge also.   The handles are almost 2 inches wide. Since this was ribbon they went on very easy.

Fingernail File holders

What an absolutely beautiful day here today! The last few have been getting warmer and warmer and after what seemed like never ending snow I am so glad to be able to drive and even put the windows down some!!!  With spring right around the corner, I am looking forward to getting time to create even more.

I was wanting some little items to handout and I was directed to Connie Stewarts blog where the directions for these adorable little finger nail file holders were.  They use very little paper and I found 24 packs of nail files at Walmart. The front of them are the regular ugly brown color but the back is an off white which worked well for what I wanted.

The cardstock colors used were limeade, island indigo, and melon mambo. The dsp papers are not SU but some that I had that I thought matched the cardstock nicely and said "spring" to me. 

You can see a video on Connies blog for these nail file holders. They go together very quickly.
