Merry and Bright…

If you have been following me this week you may have noticed how easy it is to pull out different cards that coordinate and make simple cards, treats and more. The card I am featuring is one of my favorite fun folds, not only because it easy but because it can be used in several different ways. I will be making it as a gift card holder but you could also stamp on each section or even used as a photo card,  invitation or announcement.

To get started you will need:

  • Santa’s Workshop Memories & More card pack
  • poppy parade card– cut 1 card base in half at 4 1/4″ X 6 1/4″, save the other 1/2 to make another one 🙂
  • poppy parade card stock– cut 1 at 4 1/4″ X 9 3/4″ and score at 3 1/4″ & 6 1/2″
  • adhere one 4″ X 6″ card to the poppy parade card base
  • adhere one 4″ X 3″ card to the front fold, i added an arrow sticker to this card
  • trim one 4″ X 3″ card to 3″ X 3″, adhere to the middle section with tear & tape on 3 sides to form a pocket.
  • adhere one 4″ X 3″ card to the last fold, I added a tree sticker to the lower right corner.
  • Adhere the tri fold to the card base centering it and finish by adding a few red rhinestones for bling.

Not just a card…

….but a gift, it seems like gift cards are very popular around the holidays and when I give them I like to dress them up a little.

To create this gift card holder I added the Santa’s workshop Memories & More cards & Envelopes to my supplies. The Cards & Envelopes come with 20 cards bases, 10 each of 2 sizes (3″ X 4″ & 4″ X 6″) with matching envelopes……I plan on stocking up on these to use for valentines cards 🙂

envelopes pp

Lets get started with our gift card holder by pulling out a few cards and stickers from the card pack and some poppy parade ribbon & garden green bakers twine.

FullSizeRender (8)

Outside pocket:

  • seal a small envelope and cut off the top, it should be 3 1/2″ X 4 1/4″
  • glittered stripe card- cut 1 at 2″ X 3″
  • heart candy cane card- cut 1 at 3″ X 3″
  • polka dot card- cut 1 at 1″ X 3″
  • adhere the candy cane card to the glittered stripe card (4″ X 3″)
  • adhere the 1″  polka dot and tie a piece of garden green bakers twine around with a bow
  • attach to the envelope with dimensionals making sure the opening is on top and attach the Happy Christmas sticker on the front with dimensionals

Gift card tag:

  • garden green card stock (or one of the cards in the pack)- cut 1 at 3″ X 4 1/2″
  • punch a hole with the detailed trio punch for the ribbon, slip a 4″ piece of ribbon through the hole and tie a piece of garden green bakers twine around with a knot.
  • add a couple stickers to decorate the tag along the bottom.

This simple gift card holder idea I am sure you will come up with many more combinations with the variety cards that are includes. Below are a list of the supplies used. You can click on any of the products to be directed to my online store or go to

Simple treats….

IMG_1159Looking for easy holiday treats for your children’s classmates, your coworkers, neighbors, friends or to hand out at holiday gatherings? Today I have two treats that I have made over and over to hand out. To create them I used the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More card pack plus a few extra supplies. (listed at the bottom of this post)

Treat #1 Santa’s Elf

Die cut two 2 1/2″ scallop squares, score at 1″ and adhere to each other. (you could also cut two 2 1/2″ squares)

Punch out 1 garden green starburst, punch out the elf from one of the 3″ X 4″ cards with a 1 3/4″ circle punch.


Wrap a piece of the poppy parade ribbon around and tie a knot to form an opening to slide in a snack size candy bar. Adhere the garden green starburst to the front and then attach the elf with a couple of dimensionals. Finish off with a rhinestone for the tip of his hat.


 Treat #2 Santa’s Nuggets

You will need 5 Hersey nuggets, cut five 1″ X 3″ pieces from 2 coordinating cards and cover the nuggets. Slide into a 2″ X 8′ cello bag and set aside. To create the topper I cut a 2″ X 3″ piece from one of the cards and scored it at 1 1/2″, cover the top opening of the bag and staple closed. Wrap a piece of garden green bakers twine around twice and tie a bow, add the Santa and “YUM” with dimensionals.

*I like to use tear and tape to secure the paper around the nuggets 🙂

I hope you are ready to create your treats! Below I have added the products used to create these treats, many of the items will be used on other projects I will be sharing this week.

Get Cozy with Flannel…

Flannel shirts are warm & cozy and remind me of cooler nights and sitting by a fire. I wanted to create that feeling with paper so I started grabbing products that would help me create a background paper that reminded me of my favorite flannel shirt….

The Buffalo Check background stamp will work for the base,  I will add the detail lines with the Stampin’ Blends, using both the fine and brush tips. To give it the texture I wanted I use the Subtle embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. I created three different pieces with totally different colors….

Stampin’ Blends…

Stampin’ Blends markers can be used to color in images, create backgrounds and so much more, today I decided to create my own colored paper to punch out for the light bulbs. This would be a fun technique to use with other punches and die cuts.

i am using the Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green and Real Red Stampin’ Blends, I colored an area on a scrap of whisper white paper in each color trying both the light and dark shades of each color. Once I found the shade I liked I punched out several of each.

The galvanized metallic paper was perfect to add as the socket, I punched them out and used a glue dot to attach them. To create the string for the lights I used the garden green bakers twine, I attached it to the front and inside the card with glue dots.Once the images were stamped in memento black ink I was ready to add the light bulbs.

To finish off the card I added a few rhinestones and an accent swoosh on the light bulbs with Wink of Stella.


To create this card you will need….

  • Night of Navy card stock- cut 1 at 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″
  • Granny Apple Green Card stock- cut 1 at 3″ X 6″, score at 5 1/2″, attach to the Night of navy to create a flap
  • Whisper White card stock- cut 1 at 5 1/4″ X 2 3/4″ front, cut 1 at 4 3/4″ X 2 1/2″ inside, scrap to color and punch out light bulbs
  • Galvanized Metallic paper – cut 1 piece at 1/2″ X 12″, punch out sockets for ]light bulbs
  • Santa’s Workshop Designer series paper cut 1 red polka dot at 4″ X 5 1/4″, adhere to the night of navy covering the where you attached the Granny Apple Green

Falling For Leaves…

 I have totally fallen in love with the Falling for Leaves stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. At first you may think  it’s just for the fall but by changing up the colors I think you can use this set throughout the year.


To create the box I used the Wood texture designer series paper and the Takeout thinlits from the Take Out Treats Bundle. I added shimmery white card stock with Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay inks, paper and ribbon. To finish it off I added a linen thread bow to the tag and popped it up to add dimension.

(Please note the lemon lime twist ribbon is no longer available, i added the Bermuda Bay to the product list below)

Below is a list of the supplies to create this cute box, click on any item to be directed to my online store to shop or view the current catalogs.
