Holiday Soap Dispenser

This project was inspired by one  I saw on Pinterest.  I purchased a bottle of liquid hand soap from  my local craft store for just $1 and it worked perfectly for this purpose!

This project would make an awesome budget friendly holiday gift and it would be simple to mass produce (teaches, neighbors, coworkers...)  I already have a long list of occasions I will be using this for.

Money Holder Card

I am so excited to share this fun envelope punch board project. Everybody needs a money holder card sometime! and cash is always a PERFECT gift.

This is a fast, simple project that can be adapted for any occasion. I used paper from a very old Christmas pad and one of my favorite old stamp set but you could use different papers and embellishments to create a totally new look.

Happy Stamping,

Quick Card Recipe

Today I am sharing a "recipe" that I have used many times. When I need to produce a great card in a hurry I grab small piece of my favorite patterned paper and a couple of colors of coordinating cardstock. Then I select something that I want to use as a focal image. Usually that's a punched or die cut shape or a stamped image. Then I just follow the "recipe" that I am sharing with you. So far I have never been disappointed in the results. Go ahead give it a try and let me know what you think.

Be crafty!

Fun Flower Hello Card

Can you believe that I am posting a second project today? I am on a roll and thought I would upload a second video tutorial before I ran out of steam. This project features the brand new Fun Flower punch and the Blossom For You stamp from Stampin Up. They are great because they are designed to coordinate with one another. I also incorporated some of my Project Life supplies to make this cute fall card.

Tone on Tone Double Embossed Card

I have quite a bit to share with you this week. I am busy preparing projects for the upcoming Scrap-Fest fundraiser and a retreat with my crafty friends. As I complete my projects I will upload video tutorials so you can share in the fun.

The card I am making today is quick and simple to assemble but the results are stunning and people will think you spent ages making it.  Grab your embossing machine (Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Vagabond ...) an embossing folder, some punches or dies for creating small flower and leaf shapes and a piece of cardstock. That's pretty much all you will need to complete this project.

Happy Scrapping,
