Note pad easels

These are post it note holders as well.  They stand as an easel when open.  They hold 3" x 3" pads.  They make great gifts!

This holds a 4"x 6" post it note pad.  I used the tree stamp from Lovely as a tree and the deer from White Christmas stamp set (retired).  Both of these sets are from Stampin' Up!

     These are little bags with Hershey kisses made with  Wood Textures Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up!  I give these to people who place orders or visit my table at Prairie Sky Farmer's Market.

Thank you

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you enjoy the projects I have shared with you.  All the products I have used are from Stampin' Up!  unless I have noted otherwise. 

Have a great weekend!


Hot chocolate/gift card holders

     These packages were inspired by another Stampin' Up demonstrator.  They hold hot chocolate or hot apple cider drink packages.  Gift cards could be tucked in the pocket as well.  They were made with small white bags and embossed.  The tags are stamped with the For All Things stamp set. 

Mini Note Card sets.

      These mini card sets are made with envelope paper, Whisper White card stock, mini pizza boxes, 3" x 3" envelopes, Emerald Envy card stock and classic ink and Sweet Sugar Plum card stock and classic ink.  The stamp  is from a paper pumpkin package. 

Thank you card

     A friend of mine requested a thank you card with a strawberry theme so I used the strawberry stamp from the Fresh Fruit stamp set, the tag from Wood Words stamp set and Wood Crate framelits.  The crate is also from the Wood Crate framelits set.

Sticky Note and pen holder

     While we were in Vancouver, I found this pen in a store at Lonsdale Quay and after I got home, I made this holder to go with it.  I am wishing they had more of these pens! 

Thank you cards

      This card fold was inspired by another Stampin' Up demonstrator.  Not sure what the fold is called.  It is quite simple and fun though.

Masculine birthday card

A masculine birthday card was ordered with a wood theme.  I used pieces of the Wood Textures Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes also from Stampin' Up.

Welcome card

     This is a peekaboo card I made for a new minister.  I used the dove stamp from "All of God's Grace stamp set and the verse stamp is one I borrowed from a friend.  All materials used are from Stampin' Up!

Thank You card

     This thank you card (twist and pop) was made for a friend who has been coordinating 31 people in a Canada 150 km Challenge.  She had door prizes each week to encourage us along the way. Each week we would have a Roll Call where we would share our kilometers walked, biked or ran for that week.  This stamp set was my prize for one week's door prize so I made a thank you card for her.
I am happy to say I exceeded my goal for that challenge and have joined a summer exercise challenge coordinated by this same friend.  She is an awesome leader!

Double Fold birthday card

     Another new technique (Double fold) was used here with the opportunity to use up some birthday washi tape.  I also used some glitter paper I won in a contest on a friend's Facebook page.

"Swing" card

     For this card, I used the wiper card technique without the pop ups on the top.  I used the tree from Sheltering Tree set, the swing and cushions from Sitting Here stamp set and the sentiment and butterflies from You Move Me.  I embossed the front panel with Decorative Dots embossing folder.  I used the gold/white bakers twine for the "rope" on the swing.

Retiform Card

     Here is another retiform card in Tranquil Tide ink and the Great Outdoors stamp set and the sentiment from Sitting Here stamp set.

Peekaboo birthday card

     When I saw this stamp set (Heartland) in the new Stampin' Up catalogue, I knew I needed it for my prairie theme cards.  This card also uses the wheat from the Wetlands set and the birds from the High Tide set and the sentiment from the Sky is the Limit set.

Birthday card

     This is a simple birthday card using the Sky is the Limit stamp set, Word Bubble framelits and the global embossing folder.

Retiform cards

     These two cards were made with a new technique I learned called retiform.  I used Stampin' Up's stamp set called Lovely as a Tree for these.

    Thank you for visiting my blog today!  Have a great weekend!

Father's Day card

This is also a custom order card for Father's Day, using the Nailed It stamp set from Stampin' Up!  The wood grain designer series paper is from a collection I had when I first started as a demonstrator 3 years ago.

Pop up Father's Day card

Stampin' Up has this great wood textures designer series paper that I have fallen in love with and so I made this pop up gift card holder as a Father's Day card.  I have sold 3 so far so I plan to make more for upcoming farmer's markets.  I also used the brand new wood crate framelit as well.

Baby Waterfall card

     This is an order from one of my customers.  It is a baby waterfall card made with Pool Party card stock and ink and Something for Baby stamp set and framelits - all from Stampin' Up!

Wedding card

On May 21, we went to my husband's nephew's wedding.  This is the card I made for their wedding in their wedding colors.  I embossed gold foil from Stampin' Up for the panels and inside pocket which held their gift.  The sentiment was from Occasional Quotes and stamped in Powder Pink. The card base was also Powder Pink all products in this card are from Stampin' Up!

Father's Day Card

Here is a Father's Day card I plan to make more of for our farmer's market.  I used paper that a friend of mine shared with me, for the background and the Nailed It stamp set.

Thinking of You Card

This card could be used for any occasion.  I made it as a Mother's Day card.

Easter Baskets

These little Easter baskets were made for one of the preschool classes I work in.  There were filled with treats for the kids to take home.  They could be great for any occasion like a bridal or baby shower.

Double Z Card

This is a Mother's Day card I made to sell at our community farmer's market.  It is a Double Z card.

Thank you Card

     This card was made with the Sheltering Tree stamp set and the Decorative Dots embossing folder.

Thank you Cards

These cards were made with water colored panels.  I used two different methods with Stampin' Ink refills and baby oil.  The back 2 were sponged and the front two were done by swishing the water color paper in the inked oil.

Birthday Waterfall Card

     This is a birthday waterfall card I made for a custom order.  I used Peekaboo Peach card stock and Whisper White card stock.  The Avant Garden stamp set was also used.
