Good morning, y’all – happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!  And, in honor of the day, this month’s theme is Share the Love!  I can’t wait to see what all the ladies come up with and I hope you’ll spend some time scrolling thru all their offerings today!

My project is the second installment from the gift items I made for my friend’s wedding this past weekend.  Wedding…Love.  Made sense to me!

A few weeks back, I made a card using the Falling For You stamp set and the Falling in Love DSP.  When I selected this card for them, I decided to make a Gift Card Holder to go with it.

Stampin’ Up! Hexagons Dynamic TIEF Sneak Peek Gift Card Holder!

‘Sup, y’all!?  The week is progressing apace – Christmas is almost here!  I took out a second mortgage today to mail packages with UPS.  Crazy.  It’s my own fault for waiting so long – procastination is expensive, it turns out – but….really?!?  One might think I’d learn my lesson after doing the same darned thing every year.  But apparently not…

Speaking of lessons – Finn-Chewie sort of got one today from the Haflinger School for Dogs.  He – against my advice – went into the pasture with the horses this morning.  

Cerah decided she didn’t really want him around and stomped her foot at him.  Which caused him to bounce back.  Which made Cady decide he must want to play tag – which she and Buck used to do! 😉

Finn-Chewie didn’t “get” the tag thing.  All he saw was Cady chasing him – which caused him to growl/bark/tuck his wiggler and boogie as fast as he could to the fence.  It turns out that they’re a lot bigger when they’re coming at you with their heads down than they are walking docilely ahead of you to the pasture with Mom leading them.   I think he thinks they’re moving because he’s following them! 😉

Poor little dude.  Except I told him to not go in the pasture.  And I tried to call him back out of it.

Teenagers.  They have to learn the hard lessons on their own, I suppose!  Cuz parents are dumb and also boring.

Getting savagely attacked by rogue Haflinger ponies does make a kid thirsty.  Hose time!  He bites the water as it comes out! 🙂

So – my card for today isn’t even a card.  It’s a gift card holder.  Gift cards are so easy and usually welcomed by the recipient, right?  But I always sort of feel like I’m phoning it in a little when I give them.  So, if I can give them in a cute holder, it assuages my guilt.  I made two gift card holders with the new (Occasions catalog) Hexagons Dynamic TIEF.  Take a look see:

These are so darned easy!  I started with a piece of 4 1/2″ x 6 1/8″ Real Red card stock.  I scored it along the long side at 1 1/4″, then turned it and scored 2″ in from the other end.

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Wrapped Seaside Shore

Last weekend in Savannah is in the books, folks!  This time next week I’ll be home and – hopefully! – unpacked and back in the home-groove!  And it’ll be August, for goodness sake! Can you even believe that??  I mean, the thermometer definitely knows it’s August, but darned if this year isn’t just flying by!  We just did some Christmas in July, but…it’s going to be Christmas-for-real really soon!

And speaking of which – next week is the deadline to be sure you’re on my list to get a free 2016 Holiday Catalog!  If you’ve placed a $50 or higher order with me in the past year, and you let me see who you are (you’ll know cuz I sent you an e-mail and an ordering gift!), then you’re in – you’ll be getting a catalog in the first half of August.  If you haven’t placed an order, this would be a good time – pick $5o or more of your favorite goodies and I’ll automatically put you on the mailing list! 🙂

Now – speaking of goodies.  The Seaside Shore stamp set, which I played with for today’s card, is what I’d call a “sleeper”.   When I first saw it, I wasn’t all that impressed.  I really couldn’t see me making much with it.  But, now that I’ve got it, and have made a few projects with it – I really really love it.  It’s just so much fun – especially when combined with the By The Shore DSP and the Seaside TIEF.  And for this one, I added a couple of sentiments from the Perfectly Wrapped set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Holder from a Sketched Dots Gift Bag!

Good Friday morning!  By the time this publishes I should be a few hours down the road on my way to Tampa for the first On-Stage Live event!  I’m excited – this will be my first official Stampin’ Up! event (I hemmed/hawed/deliberated/debated too long this past summer and missed out on the last ever SU! Convention. 😦 )  So, this should be fun.  We’re going to do make-and-takes (I assume, since they told us to bring acrylic handles and solicited volunteers to bring their Big Shots!) and get a sneak peek of the upcoming 2016 Occasions Catalog!

For today, since I’m drafting this on Thursday evening, and my clothes are in the dryer (and not in my suitcase!), I’ve picked a little project that will be quick to share.  It’s a Gift Card holder – everyone gives gift cards and we’re heading into the Gift-Card-Giving-Season! – easily made using a SU! Sketched Dots Tag A Bag Gift Bag, the Happy Notes and A Little Something stamp sets,  and some easy embellishments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Little Something Cute Personalized Gift Card Holder

Just a quick little project for you today.  We’re headed into the gift giving season – and most of us have a few folks on our list who just sort of….befuddle us….when it comes to what to get for that person.  For some reason, most of those people on my list are guys!  Hmmm.  Not sure why – but there it is.  I always kind of hate to do a gift card – somehow it seems like a cop out.  On the other hand – a gift card always fits, is always the right color, and is usually something they want! I do try to pick gift cards that are suited to that person.  Bass Pro for my hubby (usually in addition to other gifts), Amazon for the twenty-something boys/men who are in college and starting a career.  None of them want a Bed, Bath and Beyond gift card, or a Williams-Sonoma card! 🙂

The Gift Card holder I’ve made to share with you today was a requested item.  My friend has a friend (yes – more than just me!) who has found herself in the unenviable position of having a house full of mice.  Not a couple.  Not even a few.  Apparently – it’s an “infestation”, that she found one evening when she “heard a noise in her kitchen and when she turned the light on, there THEY were”.  The poor woman has spent thousands and thousands of dollars getting rid of the mice and replacing everything she fears might have been “touched”.

So, Jan is giving her a gift card (Bed, Bath and Beyond maybe?!) to help her replace some stuff.  And she asked me for a gift card holder.  With maybe a….mouse…. on it.  She assured me her friend will find it funny!

I’ve put up a Tutorial to show you how to make the basic Gift Card holder using the Envelope Punch Board.  It’s so easy it’s ridiculous.  Check it out here!  So, I made that holder, and then I decorated it according to her request!  Take a look-see:
