Gift Card Wallets

Here is what I've been working on today. I got Visa gift cards for my brothers but I wanted to put them in something nice. I saw these on a website but changed them a little. The one I copied from had a 1/2 inch closure and I wanted mine to be flat. I actually decorated them myself this time too. I picked the colors and the stamp set. I'm starting to get into this whole creating thing (ok, maybe not). The first picture is of the wallets closed. I used eyelets and ribbon for one and velcro for the other. The second one is of one of them opened. The last picture is of my desk when I was done. I'm sorry the computer screen was so bright, but I wanted to change nothing .

Happy Stamping!!!

Gone for Good... :(

Hello out there in stamping land. As most of you know, Stampin' Up! has moved to having two catalogs a year which means that January 1st is the last day to order from the current catalog. I've attached a link to the customer site so you can pick the retired list in either page number or alphabetically. Be sure to get the stamps and accessories you are dying for before they are GONE FOR GOOD.

Here are the two of the three cards that we did at my first Stamp-a-Stack. As you all know, I hate to create something on my own, so I want to be sure to give credit where credit is due. The River Rock card was done by Stamping Heather. Here is her link You'll notice that I actually changed this a little. The Purely Pomegranate one was done by karineb. You can see her card here... . Everyone had lots of fun and are stocked with 15 cards ready to address and send out. I will be planning these every couple of months so watch out for more dates.

My goal with this new site it to be sure and give you stamped items at least once a week. Be sure to check back often to see what's new. You might notice that the look of things will probably change as I get a handle on this whole blog thing. Happy Stamping!!!
