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! An Easy Peasy Little Something Halloween Treat Bag

I’m taking the train.

I’m done with airplanes.

I’m a pilot.

I’m pretty afeared of riding on trains.

But, I’m taking the train.

On my flight home yesterday, a 757-200 (I tell you this so you can be forewarned) – I discovered there were no air vents overhead.  Called “gaspers” if you’re interested.  The little doodads that you can twist and direct to get cool air.


Didn’t exist.  There was a reading light for each of us.  A Call button.  No gasper.  Even the Flight Attendant was surprised.

So – I alternately sweltered and froze.  For about 4 hours.  In the middle seat.

I’m taking my chances with a derailment.  Surely the odds of that are way lower than the odds of a miserable flight – which is pretty much 100%!

So there.  That’ll show ’em!  They’re gonna be so sorry when they lose my business.  Watch for the impending demise of the commercial airline industry! 😉

On to my share.  It’s a quickie today.  Another of the cute projects we made at the World Card Making Day Atlanta 2015.  This one goes together so quickly – you can knock a whole bunch out and move on with the remainder of your Halloween preparations!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Little Something Pillow Box Note Card Holder!

Welcome, y’all!  Happy Saturday – hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend and the weather to let you do it!  I think we’re going to make a trip to Costco, and I hope we’re going to go see Mr. Matt Damon in The Martian.  I read that book last week – I had to ration myself so it would last…very fast read and I was having fun with it, so I wanted to sit down and devour it, but I also wanted it to LAST!!  A conundrum to be sure.  Anyway – it’s excellent and if you get a chance to read it, I highly recommend that you do! 🙂

For today’s share, I have a note card holder for you.  We made a version of this at the World Card Making Day last weekend.  This is what we made….

A Little Something Note Card Holder - Stamps-N-Lingers

Cute, huh?  Well, I wanted to make a more Christmas-y one, and I wanted it embossed.  With my fave TIEF – the wonderful Woodland!  I put a tutorial over on my Tutorials Page, so head over and see the detailed instructions for making one of these little guys!  If you haven’t been over there, I’ve posted quite a few projects for you to take a look at.

Today’s note card holder uses, as I mentioned, the Woodland TIEF, the stamp set called A Little Something, some Home for the Holidays DSP and a few other little goodies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Little Something Simple for Saturday!

A very cool thing happened to us this morning.  As Wayne and I were coming back to the house after feeding, we were almost to the garage when a slight commotion caught our attention.  We looked towards the woods on the edge of the driveway and saw TWO hawks swooping and diving thru the tress – apparently either embroiled in a bit of a fuss or “on a date”!  One continued thru the trees and away, but the other hawk landed on a tree so close I could touch him.  Well, with my extra long Inspector Gadget extending robot arm – but, you know what I mean.  He and I looked right into each other’s eyes.


We did.

We had a moment.

And it was the coolest thing ever!! 🙂

I blinked.  He left.  He was done with me.

So, we’ve (Wayne and I, not me and the hawk!) decided we need to wear a Go-Pro on our heads whenever we leave the house and it needs to always be on and recording.  Cause we never know what we’re going to look up and see….a deer and her spotty child….a squirrel relaxing in the path with an apple in his hands….a hawk flying by with a snake dangling (an experience equal parts “ooooooooh” and “eeeeeeeeeww”!)…..a hummingbird hovering right in front of our faces…a spotty deer kid racing madly around the pasture just because she can and she’s really fast and EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE!  We’re surrounded by wildlife and wish we could get them on tape.

We probably won’t do that.  So don’t be expecting video of snake-carrying-hawks any time soon, okay?

A second miracle occurred today to me – not to Wayne.  At one point this afternoon, Wayne said “I’m going to go mow – you need to do your card and blog, don’t you?”  I almost fell over!  Direct acknowledgement that I’m trying to make this into a going concern!  Whoo-hoo!! 😉  So….here I am!

It occurred to me when I sat down to make the card that it had been a little bit since I’d done a card that only needs one stamp set.  Like I promised I would.  I try to keep my promises, but I’ve failed on this one.  You guys need to remind me, okay?

So, I reined in my desire to use a stamp from every set I own and twelve different framelits, and settled on a Fall card using the fun set that can be bundled with the Square Pillow Box Framelits.  It’s called A Little Something, and it’s got a couple of cute stamps in it that hit “Fall” square on the head.  I combined that with some Autumn-y colors and a little Thick Baker’s Twine and…..take a look-see:
