Notebook with Pen

I really enjoy making little gifts for my friends at work.  We have been out for the summer and I wanted to do something special for our returning instructors.  They had done a fabulous job the previous semester and deserved recognition.   I came across some notebook videos of various sizes and came up with this.  It actually was so much easier than I thought and I had fun picking out designer series paper (DSP).  Supply paper:  Bubble Bath Cardstock - 81/2" x 11"        Score on long side - 1 1/4", 1 1/2",  5 3/4",  6".  Cut at 10 1/4" and save the cut piece and cut a 3" piece.      Score on short side - 2 1/4"  Designer Series Paper (DSP) - Delightfully Eclectic      2 pieces 4" x 6" (for front & back)     1 piece  1" x 6" (for front strip)     1 piece 2" x 4" (for inside pocket)     1 piece 1 3/4" x 4" (for notepad)          Score at 1", 1 1/4"      1 piece 3/4" x 3" (for pe

Fitting Florets Collection - graduation

Framed Florets Suite   I teach nursing students and they are graduating in a few weeks.  I thought I would make them a special card.  Fortunately it is not a large class.  I love blue and the blues in this card are just beautiful. I saw this design by another demonstrator, Paula Barin, and she did it as a fun fold.  I changed it a little to make it simpler for me - especially for making in bulk.   Balmy Blue card stock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/2".  Then cut 1 inch from the front side of the card.      Piece to cut oval with Fitting Florets dies Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper (DSP) - 3" x 5 1/4 " for front of card Fitting Florets DSP coordinating piece - 1" x 5 1/4" for inside piece Basic White card stock - 3" x 5 1/4" for inside, piece to cute oval using dies      Piece to stamp and die cut flowers.  Soft Succulent card stock - piece to die cute leaf Pearl embellishments.  First I cut out the oval, using the die with my Stampin

Lights Aglow Suite - Christmas in July 1st Card

July Card Class 2022 - 1st Card Every July I hold a Christmas in July class.  The class consists of four different Christmas cards.  If you purchase $50 or more from me, you will receive the whole kit of 4 cards plus a bonus card and a PDF the recipes of each card. If anyone is like me, I send out tons of Christmas cards (around 100) and need to start preparing early so this is a perfect time.   Our new Mini catalog came out and it is filled with fun holiday cards and ideas.  I chose the Lights Aglow Suite because it offers so many opportunities for designs and creativity.  There is texture and beautiful DSP (designer series paper).  The suite includes stamp sets, coordinating dies, great sentiments, ribbon, pearls and glitter paper.  It also has foil paper which I chose not to use here.  This card design is from another demo, Laura Zimmerman, and I just loved it! Cardstock:  Very Vanilla 4 1/4 in x 11, scored at 5 1/2 in (cardbase), 4 in x 1 in (sentiment), 3 3/4 in x 5 in (matt) Cher
