Operation Write Home and Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop!!!


Hello!  Welcome to Operation Write Home (OWH) and Perfect Paper Crafting blog hop!  OWH is a wonderful organization that collects blank handmade cards for the military to send to their loved ones.  They have special requirements about what can go on the cards so if you'd like to join in and send in a few cards, click here for their blog and click the links for more info.

For this hop, Perfect Paper Crafting will be offering a $50 gift certificate to one lucky person who finishes the hop and comments on each blog listed below.  You can comment until Sunday, September 29th.  Good luck!

Here is the Blog Hop list.  If you get lost along the way, you can always head back to the start at OWH HERE.


Here is the card I created using one of the many sketches you can find on the OWH blog.  There are so many, I had a hard time deciding!


I used this cute stamp from Wild Rose Studio called Bella with Daisy.  The sentiment is also from Wild Rose Studio and is a simple Thinking of You sentiment.  I used my Perfect Layers rulers to create the thin yellow mats and make a cheery card.  Even with these mats and layers, this card is a standard A2 card and not too thick to send through the mail with regular postage.

Here is a close up of Bella.  I actually had this image stamped and colored for a while and didn't know what kind of card I wanted to make.  I think she is perfect for this hop!

The next person on this hop is Julie!

Hope you enjoy the hop!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.
