Purse punch cards

I know I've made these purses before, but I think they're so cute. So I had to resurrect them. I originally found this pattern on Dawn's blog. She has the cutest ideas with instructions and videos!

It's so hard to go back to work after a long weekend.

HK two ways

I love my Hello Kitty Sizzix dies. This one is actually the one where she's peeking over the rainbow, but I like to use the sentiment instead. I made this into a money holder card for my friend's daughter's birthday.
Close-up of Hello Kitty... and look how good the sentiment came out! I don't think I've ever had it come out that clear before. Helps when you buy a new ink pad!!
Here's the inside with the money pocket.
This thank you card is for Teri for the awesome RAK that she sent me. Same idea with the HK. I'm new to using the flowers as embellishments, but I think it came out okay. I was really happy that I had flowers that matched the background paper colors.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I can't handle the crowds for Black Friday (or Saturday) so we always get ready for Christmas. We've already got our tree and the outside decorations are done!

Blog Candy Winnings

I meant to post this yesterday but got so busy, I ran out of time. These are all the goodies that I won from Jenny's Blog Candy contest. I can't wait to use my new stamps!
Jenny also sent me this super cute card. She's so talented! I hope you can see all the details.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Holiday Gift Card Holders

Let me start off by saying that these are not my ideas - I totally cased them from other people. They're so cute!

I got the Santa gch idea from Tracy. I adjusted mine so they would have a flap over the top. I found those cute button brads and buckle from JoAnns.
Here's a side view of the "real" buckle.
And the back view with the cut-out so you can easily pull the gift card out.
I got the pattern for this super cute gch from Patti. If you haven't visited her blog, you should! She always posts the patterns for the things that she creates. And they're so cute!!
Here's what it looks like when you open the card.

Hope you have a great (short) week!

Santa Bags

I made these Santa Bags after I saw this super cute post by Tracy.
I just covered a white paper bag with the red card stock and used silver paper for the buckle.
I need to cram a lot of goodies inside the bag, but it worked out great!

I know I haven't been posting much. I've actually been doing a lot of craft projects, but since they're Christmas gifts, I don't want to post them until after the holidays so people can be surprised.

While I was in Hawaii, my gf gave me all of these RAKs! She's so sweet to think of me. I don't know how she has the time to make all of these!
She also had a special make-and-take set up for me. These are 2 of the cards that I made at her house.
I didn't make this card holder, but she had it ready for me to take my cards home in.
And I made this at her house too. So cute with the cotton on the hat!
I had so much fun!

This is the card that I made for my mother-in-law's birthday. I love the MS boarder punch. The stamps are from Stampin' Up.

I'm back!

We went to Hawaii for a week. Got to visit friends and family and ate lots of good food. I had a great time, despite the humidity and no trade winds. Trying to get back into the work schedule and adjust back to our time zone.
