Project #1 Holiday Stamp Camp
This is My version of the tri-shutter card folded ready for the envelope.
I call it the Scrapbook card. Why?
Look below?
This is a sample of the Holiday Scrapbook Card, I need to add more pictures. Haven't got that far yet, the teachers always the last to complete the assignement.

This was a huge hit at our Holiday Stamp Camp. I used stamped images, embossed images, and my Simply Scrappin Christmas Jingle Kit and a little Merry Moments Designer paper mixed in to create the perfect Christmas card. Why? Well everyone likes to send those picture cards, right? You want to show off your family or Fluffy what ever the case may be.
Well with this card you have the best of both worlds you can put your pictures in the card as well as show off your creative skills by hand making their card with love and care, BOY I know my family and friends would be impressed.

Rules of Chocolate Candy Tin Project #2
Looking for that perfect gift for all your co-workers? Maybe a Secret Santa gift, neighbors, family or friends? Then basically all of these projects fit the bill.
Custom orders are available.

You have 25 Hershey's Nuggets covered with 1x3 Designer paper with the Rules of Chocolate
in the top of the tin when you open it. A poem with funny little sayings about the rules of eating chocolate.

Project #3 Metal embossing on tin
Check out these cool smaller tins that perfectly fit a gift card or business card.
We used Encore silver ink, silver embossing powder after a huge amount of embossing buddy powderwas dabbed all over the top of the tin, stamped images with Baroque Motiff and Definitely Decorative stamp sets, heated it until it was nice and sparkly silver. Then we took the BIG B___ ( the mother of the cropadile) and punched two holes in the top of the tin for the ribbon and tied a purty bow and there you have it.
A gift card holder and two Designer wrapped mini Hershey bars with sentiments!
I have never received candy with a gift card have you?
I love this one! this is the box in the bag using the flocked paper from the Holiday Mini
Christmas Cocoa Speciality .
For the Box in the Bag (SCS resources)
You need a 5 1/2 x 12 piece of DP and the box in the bottom is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 scored at one all the way around. Using sticky strip you just wrap the DP around the box seal it up with sticky strip and take a one and 1 & 1/2 inch strip x 12 and use your eyelet border punch to make the decorative trim around the bottom and then I topped it off with the my favorite ribbon, the white organza!
It is absolutely stunning.
The little Christmas tree box is the same one seen on Inking Idaho, Becky Roberts used for her pumpkins with the large ovals.Cut your CS for the box at 2 1/4 x 6 (score at 5 1/2, 4 1/2, 2 3/4 and 1 3/4) then turn the box and score it at 1. Then I cut the felt with my Christmas tree #2 die cut and used sticky strip to adhere it. The handle is a 1/2 inch by 6, with two brads to attach it.
This is a simple layered card using the NEW Sweet Centers stamp set and the sweet treat cups.
The Designer paper is from Merry Moments and the Simply Scrappin Christmas Jingle kit,
Scallop punch, 1 3/4 inch punch, modern label punch, and the Movers and Shakers die cut.
Real red 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, gold brads, and of course M&M's.
That's it! We made all of these projects and enjoyed a BBQ poolside lunch cooked by my DH Scott and my two daughters Chesne and Ansleigh on a gorgeous afternoon her in Daytona Beach , Florida
We had a wonderful time and now have tons of handmade gifts for family and friends!
Plus new skills!! Come and join us next time, we love to have you!!
