emergency card kit #3

Last, but not is kit #3.

I used the same layout at kit #2 except I changed the patterned paper to Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper. And, instead of using flowers, I decided to make these a bit more simple looking with circles and buttons.

They're very clean looking.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by.

emergency card kit #2

So here's Emergency Card Kit number 2. This is one of two of the larger ones.

I used the same items on the front of this kit as I did with Kit #1.

The layout is completely different though.

And, I put the label where the sentiment would go.

Let me know if you have any questions.

And, as always, thanks for stopping by.

emergency card kit #1

These are the notecard sized Emergency Card Kits I made for the boutiques and for Christmas gifts this year.

I decided against making Christmas cards and using Christmas Designer Series Paper because I wanted these to be available for year-round gift giving.

Here's the outside of one....I labeled them with the help of my computer and punched it out using the wide oval punch and then layered it on the label from the Sizzix Lots of Tags (exclusively Stampin' Up!).

The handles were punched with the Scallop Edge punch and simply attached with some brads.

I tucked the sentiments into the pouch with is the Sizzix Scallop Envelope die (exclusively Stampin' Up!) and closed it with velcro.

Here's the whole kit layed out.

The Emergency instructions.

All of the cards are the same layout with different patterns on the papers. The patterned paper is not Stampin' Up!....they're paper I already had and wanted to use for this project.

The flowers are Primas and the brads are from somewhere....cannot remember.

Thanks for stopping by & stayed tuned as I'll be posting the other two kits also.

holiday candles

These are some of the candles I made and wrapped up for the Boutiques I was at. All of the images are rub ons. I put some flat marbles in the bottom with the candle to give it a bit more weight & color. They look so much prettier in person.

Thanks for looking.

word bag swap

Remember that I told you about the monthly get together I go to? You know....the one where we do a make-n-take, swap cards & chit-chat? The one where we take a word or two and put something in a bag for each letter of the word(s) and then swap the bag? (we call it a Word Bag Swap...go figure)

Anyhoo....we had another one in August & I ended up with a box full of goodies. The box was put together by Kathy Stewart.

See what I got?

Our word was Summertime and there's something in the box for each letter. I loved it all! What a great swap.

Thanks Kathy!
Thanks for stopping by.
