A Simple Gift Card Holder with Lucy – Video Tutorial

A Simple Gift Card Holder with Lucy – Video Tutorial

 

Create a Quick Gift Card Holder with the Framed and Festive Stamp Set

I had the pleasure of spending Monday with my dear friend Lucy.  We had planned a special day of FUN – and when I suggested a Facebook Live, she thought that was a great idea!  I assured her that “all of her Facebook fans” were missing her!!!

We made a super quick gift card holder – really quick, but super cute!  You can use the measurements below – and really any cardstock, designer paper and stamp sets to make them – and they sure are a much cuter way to “give” a gift card, don’t you think?

Here is the replay of our Facebook Live – I hope you will watch and leave a comment – Lucy will surely be the bright spot in your day!  She always is a bright spot for me any time I have the pleasure of her company! She is Joy personified!  Enjoy!

I love the Snow Crystal Stamp set – shown above – I feel like it is easy to be missed in the July-December Mini Catalog – but it is there and it is so beautiful!  For my Facebook Live, I used the stamp and Starry Sky ink and cardstock to create this beautiful card.

The word panel is from the Frosted Flurry Dies – they are on sale for just $13.60 as a part of our Last Chance List! WOW!  The words I used are from the Frosted Flurry Stamp set.

FREE KIT WITH $35+ ORDER! I am offering a special now through Friday, Dec. 9 –  place an order of $35 or MORE through my Online Store, and use host code KQNXHFXD and I will send you the kit to make this card and also the box and notecards shown below! You can watch how both go together in the FB LIve replay!

Two Cute Christmas Ideas Shared on My Facebook Live!

 

If you are looking for some quick and cute little gift ideas my FB Live this week will give you just that!


Create a Treat Packages and the dog treat tag with retiring Christmas Scottie Bundle by Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan, Id Rather Bee Stampin

QUICK CHRISTMAS IDEAS! For my Facebook Live yesterday,   I created two projects – the first uses the darling Scottie Dog bundle (stamp set and punch) and “dresses up” some yummy Scottie Dog cookies – a perfect little gift for anyone on your list!  And because the bundle includes a punch for the dog, it is super quick!  These are great to have on hand when you need a little something to give!

So cute!

The second project I demonstrated uses the Envelope Treat Boxes from the July-December Mini Catalog and the Handmade Wishes Bundle.  These products are great for year round gift giving!  The Handmade Wishes Bundle also includes a punch.  Since it’s December and Christmas is coming, I made a Christmas themed box – these boxes are perfectly sized to hold a gift card, candy, jewelry etc.  Super cute and quick!
