Princess Chloe Gift Card Holder

Do you own so many stamps, you forget what you have and when you remember you have it, you can't find it?  That's what happened to cute Puddle Jumpers Princess Chloe from Claudia & Co. which I bought over at DCRU.  Before I could really dive into all the Xmas crafts I had to make a little giftcard holder for a little girl's birthday and she's going to be celebrating it at Disneyland!  So I bought her a Disney Princess giftcard.

But it's the kind of GC that has that extra card on the top and I didn't want to just break it off cause on the back it has the To and From and Message info.  Plus it's so cute whole.  Anyway, I decided to alter the GC holder Cheryl posted about HERE.   The tutorial was from Dandelion Designs.  Because the GC is so long I used 3 pieces.  The first is piece of cardstock 4.5 x 12 inches.  Then score it in the middle at 6 inches.

The second piece was 5 x 4.25 inches and scored at a 1/4 inch on 3 sides.  Then I cut the little corners like above.

The 3rd piece was 3.75 x 9 inches and scored at 5 inches from the left.  This is where the GC would be attached.

I used tape on the back of the 3rd piece but just the top rectangle.

Taped all pieces together as shown above.  The GC is taped just below the score line.

So the GC slides in and out too.  I plan to write a little message on the bottom as well.

I like that this looks just like a regular card too from the front but opens to reveal the GC, unlike the Halloween Slider Cards I made HERE.

I forgot to finish my story from above.  I was trying to think if I had a little princess stamp to match the Disney Princess GC.  And for a while I was wondering if I had TGF's Princess Anya but I don't!  Then I realized I bought Princess Chloe but had to search in my stash for her.  I think Princess Chloe is so cute and perfect for this card.  I also need a bigger box for my stamps.  I'm running out of space.

Thanks for reading and have a great Monday!

What a cute princess! You don't have Princess Anya, what a shocker! Just kidding. At least you remember what you have, I have to dig around looking at all my stamps again.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
