Glamorous Handmade Necklace Holder Box and #MakeitGiveit Sweepstakes

Hello everyone! Nina here! I’m excited to share a quick way to custom-made a necklace holder with the popular Envelope Punch Board and the #MakeItGiveIt Sweepstakes – a partnership between Jo-Ann Stores and the National Military Family Association. Glamorous Handmade Necklace Holder Box We went all gold and glamor for our tree and gift wrapping this year. We can all use some glitter and metallic shine for Christmas, can’t we? The oversized golden flowers were made with the Flower Punch Board from some Goldie Lox Foil Paper. I’ve shared a tutorial on the Flower Punch Board earlier here and I am sharing a quick how-tos for the necklace holder made from a piece of kraft cardstock (12″x12″) and the Envelope Punch Board.   Ever since Laura shared the Box Buster with us, I’ve been wanting to try it! How cool is it to make any size of a box using our beloved Envelope Punch Board? I measured the […]

Twelve Days of Gift Giving – Day 8 – Make Snowman Gift Card Holder with Katie Gehring

This post is part 9 of 12 for Twelve Days of Gift Giving

This post is part 9 of 12 for Twelve Days of Gift Giving Snowman Gift Card Holder by Katie Gehring Hello friends, Katie Gehring here to share an idea for dressing up what’s become a go-to gift for our holiday celebrations- that’s right, the ever popular and practical gift card. I used the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board and Waffle Flower stamps and dies to create a card perfect for gifting gift cards.   First, following the instructions on the punch board, I made a gift card sized envelope, but instead of having the flap open on the long side, I trimmed one of the “short side” flaps to create a pocket for the gift card. Next, I trimmed a strip of patterned paper and created a hat by die cutting and trimming the Santa’s beard die from the Surface- Tag Die- Santa Add-on. I added some fluffy […]

Hello everyone! We’ve had some questions about the basics of stamping from our planner users so we put together a short video to show you how to use them.   We used a personal size Filofax page in the video but the stamps can be used on any planner. We used Fresh Ink but all pigment inks that dry on top of paper should work. Feel free to leave a comment if you have more questions!

[Tutorial] You Make Me Dream Card

Hello everyone! I’m very excited to share today’s card. I think I outdid myself! I can finally put these products away for a while, knowing that I’ve done my best. We are going to showcase our next release in a couple of days! It will be another whole round of fun! Can’t wait to share with you! I was cleaning my craft table and found a piece of green paper that was left from a card I made earlier (another one of my favorites, click here to see it). And my Rock My World Die Set and Surface- Tag Die – Scallop Add-on were still left on the table from the last project. So I combined them again! I love the funky shapes the rock dies created. You could create a similar flower with an oval die but it wouldn’t have so much character to it. The petals were created from the leftover […]
