Stamping Play Day!


Hi bloggies!

Me & my stamping buddies get together every month for a stamping day. It is always a FAB time together … and gives me an excuse to stop in my busy week and actually stamp! It also gives me something to show YOU!!! 😀 (Lately … I have been scratching a bit … due to very little stamping time!) Anyway … one of my friends has purchased a wonderful tutorial from Deanna Tam … and we were trying out a couple of the designs … to see if they would be suitable as M&Ts for her next workshop. My buddy was a little stuck for ideas … and it was good to be able to help her plan her class! (Thanks Deanna … for the inspiration!) I will have to pop by and check out your project tutorials for myself!

This is a credit card size gift card holder and has a neat little inside pocket to enable the card to slide in and out easily. But … no card recipe today … I don’t have the details … and … it is Deanna’s tutorial … so if you want to know more … check out her 12 days of Christmas projects tutorial for purchase by PDF downloads! I made the birthday one … and then decided I would definitely have a use for one at Christmas tie … so quickly put another together! Yep! A great project for a class to create … and a great “upseller” … cos it uses punches … a Big Shot & Die & ribbons & embellies! I do hope my friend’s class girls liked this one! 🙂

I am off to take my mum out for lunch with a friend, too! (Bookwork will have to wait until tomorrow!) Another milestone … since Dad’s passing … their anniversary. It will be nice to share some time with her! Take care every one … and have a great day!

PS: Don’t forget my blog candy! And … please make sure you add all 3 requirements! I have had lots of nice comments … but only 2 so far that I can put into the draw for the Blog Candy! I do hope you might humour me … and play along!? xxxx

    I do really like these darl’n…but I must be slightly more THICK today. Does the tag open up to reveal the gift card inside???? (like the ribbon slip off etc)
    Hope everything is OK with ur mum and this anniversary. She is blessed to have such a wonderful daughter like you. ooxx

      Hi gorgun! This is actually a pocket … it doesn’t open up … as such … but there is a little trick to making it a little wider than just a double tag. The silver flower brad was added later to cover some grass stains … a few of my cards fell out of my bag onto the freshly cut lawn! 😦 Hugs xxx

Thank you so much for being an inspiration.. 🙂
