Hello stampers! I hope you and yours had a great Christmas! Mine was awesome! The best part was seeing family and friends. Recently I have seen many of these gift card holders, and I love them! I just had to give it a "shot" too. I made them to perfectly fit a gift card, and did you notice the esspresso colored insert? Just love them!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a fabulous day ☺

Hello stampers! The best part of the holidays is sharing them with those you love... Over the next few days I will be spending my time with family and friends! I am so excited and can't wait to see everyone! I also just had to share a picture of my little Foxy. She received a "Christmas card" from Aunt DeeDee this year and she absolutely loved it! It is an edible card and boy did she go to town. It took her about 2 seconds to start gnawing. The cookies you see above are a bit more people friendly. My daughter's and I made these yummy treats to share this Christmas!

I hope you and your loved ones have a Merry Christmas!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I do not expect anything out of my classes, except that you have a good time when you come. So this was way above and beyond! Sylvia, Kirsten, and Donna - THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! I love my gifts! They are all FABULOUS!!! I also had a request to post a picture of the card you see above, so here it is ;-)

This is fantastic, I love this and can't believe how much work must have gone into this project. Holy smokes!!!!

As a special thank you to all of you I have created the sweet little coffee holder you see above. It perfectly holds a Starbucks Via Ready Brew, and is super easy to put together!

Here are the directions;

For the base you will need a 2 1/4" x 9 1/2" piece of cardstock. Score this piece at 6". Fold on the score and wrap a 2 1/2" x 6" piece of designer paper around the whole bottom half. Tie a ribbon around the middle and tuck your coffee inside! That's it! Super easy! Have fun and change it up a bit with different embellishments!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a fabulous day ☺
