I stayed up late to find out what the Weekly Deals were for this week so that I could share a project with you. I was so glad to see that the Envelope Liner Framelits were on special for 25% off. I knew just what project to show you.
We did this gift card holder last year for the Master Stampers. It was such a hit that I hope they don’t mind if I show you today.
The holder is made with the Envelope Liners Framelits. And the big bow made with the Big Shot and the Gift Bow Bigz L Die just rock my worldRead More
Do you make greeting cards in bulk? Do you make them all the same? If you’ve been around me at all, you know that Ann and I like to give Target gift cards.

Both cards feature the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder that you can get free with a $50 order when you shop now. The one on the right features a greeting from the You’re Lovely stamp set that’s also free until the end of the month. AND you can get the...Read More

Amy is one of my favorite stampers. I hope that she’ll still remember how special I am to her when her new baby, Naomi, comes next month. The Yuba City Stamp Club came over last night and everyone brought cards for Amy. It was laid back and fun, like stamp club always is. Everyone threw in together to give Naomi her own Target card so I designed the gift card holder. When you’re a stamper, your card doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s. 1. Girls don’t have to have pink cards. We used some of the colors in the new Watercolor Wonder Designer Series...Read More
We LOVE Starbucks here. The barristas at the local drive through often comment about how good looking and well behaved I am when I sit in my car seat in the back of the car. There’s a lot for you humans to consume there even if you don’t like coffee! That’s why I directed this video to have Ann show you how to make this card to give those Starbucks Gift Cards to your friends. These little Starbucks Gift Cards are just the right size and shape to give your friend a cup of coffee. And there are more too! Target has shaped gift cards as well. Watch this on You Tube here....Read More
Thank you for all the kind emails about yesterday’s project. Now I’m going to show you some tips about how to make a gift card holder with it. Be sure to read under the video for some special tips that apply to this punch. Watch it on You Tube here. If you want to make a regular sized envelope for a quarter sheet sized handmade card, use the setting that is TWO LINES ABOVE the one shown for an A2 Envelope. We found that size worked best for us. Make sure the “tongue” is in the center of the fold each time. Careful measuring and scoring will ensure an easy, well...Read More
Ann was playing – yes, PLAYING – with the new Envelope Punch Board yesterday. I couldn’t get her to settle down so I could film her until the wee hours. Our video is in the can, but needs to be edited, so I’m thinking tomorrow. You’re going to like it. I’ll just show you part of the project because the gift card holder is going to be featured in our online classes on the Master Stamper. But we’ll be showing you how we used the new Envelope Punch Board here. Don’t you worry! We did the double camera thing again so that we could get you...Read More
