Vintage Sympathy

Yes, another sympathy card but this one is for my daughter to send to the sister of a classmate of hers in high school.  Tough to lose anyone but 24 years is not enough time on earth in my humble opinion. I tried to go vintage here and I sponged in Sahara Sand but wished I had gone with Crumb Cake.

Thank you cards for orders this month

I needed a thank you card for someone who ordered from me this month and it turned out so cute I decided to make one for everyone who ordered from me this month.  It uses the Hostess Set, Priority Mail and Sassy Salutations.  Easy to make with the Postage Punch and the Scallop Square Punch, good thing since I made a bunch of these this afternoon.  I do truly appreciate each and every order I get.

Desktop Display Calendar Case

So I needed a couple of dollars more to make an order come to the magic $150 level so I could get $25 in free merchandise, admit it, we all play that game.  Anyways, I decided to give the Desktop Display Calendar Case, item # 127033, on page 22 of the Holiday Catalog a try.  You can order an already done for you 2013 calendar inserts too but I decided to give it a go myself.  The Desktop Display Calendar Case is only $1.95 so what do you have to lose.  I think these would make adorable Christmas presents.  Here is the insert I made for October of this year.  I used Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper  and French Foliage Stamp Set both from the main catalog.    Can you guess what DSP I used for the image panel on November and December?

Card Club Sneak Peek

I have Card Club tomorrow night, 6 ladies get together once a month and make a project or two or three, depending on the project.  Each month one of them serves as the hostess and brings food for the rest of us to share and gets to reap the Hostess Benefits of the orders.  They are required to spend $25 a month so that gaurentees a workshop of at least $150 which means at least $25 of FREE SU! merchandise.   We have never had a hostess only earn $25 in freebies.  We used to do different techniques but starting last month decided we would do fancier cards, ones that take a little time and have a fancy fold or other extra special touch.

This month we are doing a tunnel card as one of our projects and I just had to share, it is so cute.  It is made with the Orchard Harvest DSP and the Perfectly Preserved and Friendship Preserves Stamp Sets and the Cannery Framelits.  The One in a Million Stamp Set is used on the inside.

Indian Corn shopping bags

I made 25 of these adorable little shopping bags the other day and gave some to my Girl Scouts and the rest to coworkers of my daughter.  Everyone loved them or maybe it was the M&M's inside.

I started with a piece of cardstock that measured 3" x 6".  Using my Simply Scored Board and I scored along the 3" side at 1/2" and 2 1/2".  Then I put the 6" side at the top and scored at 2 3/4" and 3 1/4".  Clip the tabs and punch a couple of holes in the top to hold the Baker's Twine and glue the sides with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Stamped the corn image from the Holiday Catalog set, Perfectly Preserved, using markers and die cut it with the Framelit Dies, Cannery Set. So easy.  The "just for you" is also in that set but is die cut with the Framelit Dies Bitty Banners.  The shopping bag hold the Fun Size of M&M's and makes a great little treat for everyone.
