Jolly Friends Gift Certificate Holder

Happy Monday!!

It's an exciting day around here as Emily comes home for 2 weeks. I can't wait to have her here and most of spend some time with together as a family!! I know the next 2 weeks will go by fast but we are going to enjoy the time together doing what we love the most..hanging out as a family watching movies, and of course watching the World Juniors!!

I have another gift certificate holder to show you today. This time my holder was made with Kraft Tag a Bags and the Jolly Friends stamp set and coordinating Jolly Friends Punch. I just love this moose from this set and had to use him on my bag!!!














Tips on Creating this Gift Holder:

  • Stamp snowflakes in Versamark so they take the colour of the kraft bag
  • Jolly friends stamp set and punch work together so easily. Just stamp your hat image and punch out
  • Stamp greeting with Mememto ink
  • Stamp Moose on Kraft card stock with Early Espresso Ink
  • Warmth and Cheer designer series paper is perfect for the warm feeling for this project

I have one more gift holder to show you this week using my favourite Christmas Cookie Cutter bundle!! 

Thanks for stopping by and had a great day!!


Merry Mice Gift Certificates!!


I had some fun on the weekend making up some Gift Certificate Holders. The Merry Mice stamp set was on my desk and I just couldn't resist those cute and adorable mice, so I had to create a holder with them on it. Now I did make 2 other samples and will be sharing those with you over the next few days!!














Are you hoping for some Stampin' Up! products under the Christmas tree this year. You can let your family and friends know that I offer gift certificates and you they can be customize to the amount they would like. Plus I will create a super cute holder for them to put it in!!! How fun it that??

Tips on Creating my Merry Mice Holder:

  • The gift holder is one of our Kraft Bags. They are the perfect way to package up a gift card!!!
  • Add a special detail to your Kraft Bag, by embossing the bag with an embossing folder. I used the embossing folder Holly
  • Fold Kraft bag 1/4 of the way down 
  • Create a belly band by cutting a piece of Designer Series Paper 2 by 12. Fold in half, lay over your bag, and staple at the top of the pattern paper. This will create a belly band for holder. 
  • Cut out a scallop circle with the Layering Circle Framelits, and the Big Shot machine. I used Real Red Card stock to make my scallop circle.
  • Stamp the Mouse image on to a scrap piece of Whisper White with Black Archival Ink.
  • Using the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Big Shot Machine, cut out a circle in Whisper White around your Mice image. 
  • Using your markers: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Garden Green, Blushing Bride and Smokey Slate, colour in your Mouse. Attach to scallop circle and and some rhinestone. Pop onto your belly band
  • Stamp your greeting in Black Memento ink and add to your holder

I hope I have inspired you to give this a try as they are simple to make!! I love finding other ways to use our products and this is a great way to use the Kraft Bags!! 

Now, don't forget to tell your family and friends that you want a Gift Certificate from Stampin' Up under the tree and have them contact me!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Merry Mice Christmas Cards


Hope you are having a great start to your weekend. It's been a good around here so far. I have spent the morning in my studio working on my to do list. Wanted to give you a little update on why my post have been hit and miss. I just switched to a new computer and it has been a little bit of a learning curve as I have gone from a PC to a Mac. I think I'm finally figuring it out and excited to finally get back to my regular posting!!

My project today used the sweet and adorable Merry Mice stamp set. I'm sad to said "that this set is on the Holiday Retiring list and will be leaving us when the Holiday catalogue is done in January. There are lots of great products retiring and the best part is that you can get a discount on them!! To view the Holiday Catalogue PDF List, click here.
















I think this stamp set might just have to stay in my Retired Collection, as it's just super cute!!! And the best part is that it's perfect for colouring!!

Tips on Creating this Card:

  • Pattern Paper is from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper pack
  • Stamp the Mice in Black Archival Ink, which help protect your image from blending when you start to watercolour
  • Colour your Mice image using a Blender Pen and your inks
  • The Scallop Circle is from the Layering Circle Framelits 
  • The White Circle is from the Stitched Shape Framelits
  • Stamp greeting in Black Memento Ink

Well, I'm off to working on checking some items off my to do list!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

My project today is one that I CASE from the Stampin' Success quarterly magazine. This little magazine is filled to the brim with product samples, training, business resources and so much more!! One of the fun benefits of being a demonstrator!!
























The best part about this stamp set is that you can get it right now for 25% off till the Nov 30. It's part of the special promotion that they have going on with the Stitched Shaped Framelits. Unfortunately,these framelits are un- orderable at the moment, as we loved them so much that we depleted Stampin'Up inventory in 2 weeks. But you can still purchase select stamp set at 25% and I have include the list for you to see!!
