Balloon Adventures Gift Card Holder

balloonadventuresgiftcardholderb

I’m excited to share with you the Balloon Adventures Gift Card Holder.  

I originally created this project for Bella’s Bundle #2 … but I wasn’t sure if a Gift Card Holder was considered a card or a 3D project … feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!

I used the Balloon Adventures Bundle … with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and the Classic Label Punch.

To make this Gift Card Holder you need a piece of Pacific Point card stock that measures 4-1/4 x 11.  That means you get two out of one sheet of card stock.

I decorated the Gift Card Holder with the Party Animal Designer Series Paper and although this pack of paper wasn’t my first choice in the Occasions Catalog, I have grown to love it!  In fact you’ll see it again tomorrow on Paper & Ink Sketches #14!

My assistant

I’d like to introduce Lesli as my new assistant as Laura is headed back to work full time at our local school district.  I will miss her greatly!! But we have become close friends with a lot in common (like Royals baseball and Taco Republic) and we’ll be staying in touch.  The only change you’ll see is we’re giving Lesli a new email address and for those that it will affect (like Stamp Club Online, Chics Paper Ink & Chic Rewards) we’ll notify you. 

Here’s a note from Laura…. I have absolutely treasured my time here at Chic n Scratch working for Angie (who I feel is more like a sister and dear friend of mine rather than a boss) as well as serving you all over the last 3+ years! I have loved getting to know you all and share in many of your lives!  I’m looking forward to helping Angie box up the next Bella’s Bundles #2 and getting the updates on how you all are doing! *Hugs*, Laura  

Email

Lately, there has been an overwhelming amount of people that are NOT receiving my emails.  On more than one occasions I’ve been told “I’m glad your back”…. yikes I didn’t go anywhere!  To solve this issue…. let’s try two things, check your spam or trash folder.  Some email providers send my emails straight to spam.  Try adding my email address to your Contacts (within your email) and that should help the problem.   But, it still might be a good idea to look in your spam folder once or twice a week.   Here’s my email address ….

Bella’s Bundle #2 – Balloon Adventures

Last month I introduced everyone to my new baby for 2017, Bella’s Bundles. I had this idea that it would be a fun way to get more stamping fun with minimal effort, because it will arrive at your doorstep…. and all you have to do is order it and I’ll take care of the rest!

Bella’s Bundles add more value than just ordering the products on their own, with amazing extras you won’t get anywhere else, like Skittles Surprises with every bundle and more. For those of you that don’t know, Skittles is my son’s Green Cheek Conure!).

Facebook Friday #8 Projects

facebookfriday8projectsb

These are the projects we made during my Facebook Friday #8 live video.

The first project was a Triangle box using the Sealed with Love Bundle and the Sending Love Designer Series Paper.

triangleboxb

I will have another version of the Triangle Box later this week (the video is already filmed and it is soooo cute!)

Next we made a Bag with the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set and the Party Animal Designer Series Paper.   This project too will be shown later this week using the same stamp set but different Designer Series Paper … you’re going to love it!!

The measurements for both projects can be found on the Inspiration Sheet below.

Before and After

beforeandafter

I don’t normally post on Saturday’s but since I’m in my stamping studio today I figured I would share a couple pics … but,  I’m not done.  This is just the start 🙂

Here’s the before… this area is behind me when I’m doing my live videos on Facebook.  

beforea

I’ve been wanting to move my ink pads closer to me … so here’s the after.  I’m going to love having them right behind my stamping desk!!  (I stand and stamp.)  

aftera

Ignore the decorations …. I’m working on a card display to go up there (it may take a few months since it needs to be painted and it’s winter here in Kansas).

All these units came from Stamp n Storage …. I LOVE these units and I am planning on expanding this wall soon (just need to figure out what pieces to order).

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! 

See ya on Monday!   

p.s. I goofed … the “before picture” should have been on the left and the “after picture” on the right … but it hit me after I finished it … oops!!

Facebook Friday #7 Project

facebookfriday7b

This is the box that we made last week during Facebook Friday #7.

I made it using the Layering Squares Framelits and it’s made exactly like the one I made in January 2011, using the Scallop Square Die.  Click here if you would like to check it out.

 I used Soft Sky card stock with the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack.  I used two stamp sets, Avant Garden from the Sale a Bration Catalog and All Things Thanks from the Occasions Catalog.

To give it a little bling, I stapled the Gold ribbon in the corner.  I LOVE the 3/8 Metallic Ribbon in the Sale a Bration Catalog.

I’ll be sharing a Valentine version later this week!!!

Mailing  List 

I’m so very sorry! This morning I sent out an email that was supposed to only go to those that registered or paid for Bella’s Bundle #1… I goofed and sent it to two of my list.   I apologize for the confusion and please ignore that email if you did not register!!!!
