Fox & Friends Mini Notecard Holder


I got this fabulous mini card idea using the Fox & Friends stamp set (current Occasions Mini catalog) from Canadian demonstrator Angela McKay.  I expanded on her idea and made a matching holder.

I used the DSP patterns pack that you can get as a level 1 hostess set plus Really Rust, Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, Night of Navy, More Mustard ink pads and cardstocks.

This is a class I will offer sometime in April.

Chocolate Bunny Basket

An Easter "basket" based on a similar one that was on the SU! demonstrator only website.

It's hard to see in the photo but the Chocolate Bunny (new stamp from the Occasions mini catalog-only $7.95 #116980) is embossed using Versamark and Clear embossing powder on Chocolate Chip cardstock.  It looks like shiny dark chocolate and good enough to eat!

Pink Flamingo DSP; Summer Sun and Old Olive cardstocks; Well Scripted stamp set; SU! Scallop Square Bigz clear die; Scallop Edge punch; Pretties kit (flower-which is died Summer Sun with a marker and halfback pearl).

For All You Do…

convention swap



This was my entry for an over the top swap at convention last year.

For All You Do stamp set; Rich Razzleberry inkpad and cardstock, Old Olive inkpad, Crushed Curry cardstock and Ribbon; Razzleberry Lemonaid DSP, Cardstock Vellum;  Blossom Party Originals die, Perfect Details Texturz plate; Chocolate Chip corduroy button.

I diecut two flowers and then trimmed away some of the petals.  I then stacked the remaining petals to give the flower dimension.

Updated Square Box with cards

An updated sample of my Square Box with cards class.  The box holds 8 matching cards.  I used the Sweet Pea DSP and the Happy Moments and Vintage Labels sets that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration.  Cardstock colors are Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip.  I also use the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder and the FREE Scallop Trim border punch.

Two sets of boxes can be made from just one sheet of DSP and some additional supplies.  Instructions can be downloaded here.

Happy Valentine's Day!!  

I know the colors aren't very Valentiney (Is that a word?) but wouldn't you just love to get some jewelry, candy or other little treats in this box?

It's  made using the Top Note and Matchbox Dies.  I used the Tea Party DSP, Filigree brads and Ice Circle Rhinestone brads.  Oh, the embellishment on top is made with the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies die for the Big Shot.

Top Note “Pizza” box

Perfect for giving a gift card or any other small gift.  The "pizza box" style holder is made using the Top Note die for the top and bottom.  I used a 5-1/2" x 8" piece of cardstock scored at 1, 3-1/2, 4-1/2 and 7" on the long edge and 1 and 4-1/2" on the short side.

I made the patchwork on the center sample using the Tea Party DSP and the 1-3/8" square punch.  I glued the pieces on to a piece of coordinating cardstock and the sent it through the Big Shot using theTop Note die.

I used the Pink Flamingo DSP for the sample on the right and the Daisies #2 die for the flower embellishment using Pretty in Pink and Read Red cardstock.  Finished it off with our beautiful Fire Rhinestone brad.

Welcome Neighbor hostess gift

Welcome home DSP notecards

A cute and very simple hostess gift made with the Welcome Neighbor DSP that you can get for free during Sale-a-bration. Minimal stamping with the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and Word Window/Modern Label punches complete the cards.  In case you can't tell they are 3"x3" and I've put 6 cards and envelopes in our  medium flat cello bag.

Gift Carrier with Box #2

Aren't these gift/treatholders too cute?!!  I made them by using two of the Sizzix Box #2 dies.   The DSP is called Tea Party and the cardstock is Certainly Celery.  The flower on the box in front is made with a SU! exclusive Sizzlet die and Bigz die.

Updated Purse Bag with Cards


I've created an updated sample of my pursebag with 6 matching notecards.  I used the Cottage Wall DSP and a couple of the new FREE Sale-a-bration stamp sets and punch. The accent cardstocks are Orchid Opulence Rich Razzleberry.  Instructions can be downloaded here.
