August Club Projects

My club girls and I had a fun evening playing with some new "Holiday Mini" goodies. A link to the catalogue is in my side-bar. This box was made with the new Stampin' Up Gift Box Punch Board. Love that thing! Makes these gift boxes a breeze. 

Most of us with grown children are using gift cards more and more for birthdays and other occasions. In the main catalogue you can find a package of these lovely gift card holders. Page 194 "Gift Card Enclosure Pack". The petal pouch is all pre-cut and pre-scored, the gift card nestles in the middle perfectly with just enough room for the greeting. Apologies, mine got caught in the rain so the ink inside smudged a little.

Each member of the Creative Crew for August was given a day to post a challenge, mine falls this week and it's to make a WINDOW CARD.

Window cards can really be made in a variety of ways. You can cut a frame on the front of your card, punch a hole, use a framelit with an interesting shape to make a hole, or window. Honestly, the sky's the limit.

Here are a few samples to whet your appetite to make a WINDOW CARD. If you'd like to play along, all the details can be found here: AUGUST CREATIVE CREW CHALLENGES.

Thanks to my sweet, kind, lovely friend DEBRA. She made a few samples too ....

I love her card. That new lace background stamp looks like wallpaper, and the trees from Lovely as a Tree are shimmering behind the sitting room window. Snow is falling too .... and look at the lace blinds. Wow. My gorgeous friend is hugely talented. Thanks Debra!
