I’ll try to squeeze in a last post for 2008.¬† ūüėČ

This is what I gave my DD’s kindergarten teacher for Christmas.¬† I simplified the Stationery Box I’ve made before so there’s just a section for the notecards and a section for matching envelopes.

Stamp Set:  Tart & Tangy
Paper:  Summer Picnic DSP, Real Red, Old Olive and Whisper White Card Stocks
Ink:  Real Red & Old Olive Markers
Accessories: 1/4″ & 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, ¬†Tag Punch, Sm Tag Punch

Then I made this Bag-A-Lope to match!  She loved it.

Autumn Vine Projects

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I enjoyed lots of family, food & fun over the week.

Here are two projects I made recently using the beautiful Autumn Vine DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog.¬† The Holiday Mini is good through Jan 18th, so there’s still plenty of time to get some of this paper.

The first project was an invite to a dinner.¬† I had to make a lot of them, so I kept it simple, but still elegant.¬† I also maximized my use of the the DSP by using (3) 2″x1″ strips on each card.¬† That gave the splash of color I wanted, but didn’t use much paper at all!

The gold embossing is the “wow” on this project.¬† I received a lot of compliments on the invites.¬† Non-stampers especially are impressed with the embossing technique.¬† I used my favorite stamp set Baroque Motifs for the swirl and Sincere Salutations for the saying.


The other project is a CD sleeve.¬† I made¬†a photo CD for my daugher’s teacher (with photos of their field trip to the pumpkin patch) but I didn’t have a sleeve to put it in.¬† So I made my own!¬† It was really easy!
