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  


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 …. 

Thanks & have a great day!
