Gift Ideas

I can't help myself, I love to stamp, play and create! It's so addicting and I find that the hours go by so fast before I know it, its time for dinner. Today I finished creating a gift for a friend's son's teacher -- they wanted note cards and a Christmas ornament and I had the perfect idea!! Below are pictures of the gifts that I created.

This is the Christmas ornament made with the Ornament Punch from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The tag is from the Christmas Punch stamp set - a Level II Hostess Set which you can earn FREE!!!! I also used the Pretties Kits for the Ornament. Below is the box that I created to hold the ornament.

I've been making note cards for years and they really are the perfect gift. I set up in my computer a page sized 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (statement size), made the margins .5 on all sides, and just spaced down and typed the name and "A Note From". I stamped the image beside the typewritten words and also on the lower left corner of the envelope.

Now, I needed a box to put the cards in so I created one using Always Artichoke cardstock and the medium thickness Window Sheet for the top. The flowers are from the Pretties Kit and were colored with ink to match the cards. Oh goodness, I almost forget -- check out the border on the notecard. It's from the Scallop Trim Border punch - you can get this FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration which starts on January 5 and end on March 31, 2010.

I'm so thrilled with how these both came out!!!! Love, love, love them!!
