Okay so this is a Martha Stewart inspired wrapping. I like using brown paper, but well maybe the decorative daisy strip would have looked better on a smaller yet more square box. Which I punched out of a 2 1/4' strip paper and punched both sides. I actually love this punch.

Gift Card Envelope

So my son had a birthday party. And well after receiving many duplicate gifts with my kids, I now do gift cards plus my boys love gift cards. So I had to make an envelope to gift it in. One thing I learned is be careful with velum and embossing.
So here's what I did, embossed a velum envelope with my cuttlebug and then added glaze accents.

Baby Shower gift. Mady with tags, ribbon, stamps. This was actually a gift certificate to

have her baby boy's foot prints painted and pressed onto a ceramic cross with his birth information. That is when he arrives this month. Yes that means anytime now.

Oh, and she loved it. I will also throw in there a Christmas ornament too with footprints.

Birthday Card for Sister-in-law

With a little help from my favorite inspiration Megan Gravener from Above Rubies Studio. I was inspired about how to go about this card. It will be in the mail this week to my sister-in-law. And I made a second one to go in my card box for my birthday card needs as a Handbell Director. Carolyn Graver paper, stickles, ribbon, and stamps... together I have a Card and a excuse for a little crafty me time.
Thanks, Denise
