Vintage Style Coin Envelopes with Video Tutorial

After seeing some cool coin envelopes for sale at my SBS, I just had to try making my own!  I used Kraft cardstock and black Memento ink, handcut the envelopes which was super easy, and then added eyelets with a punched circle base to wind and secure my twine for the closure.  They measure 3 1/2″ x 2″.   I can think of so many great ways to use these…scrapbook pages, art journals, mini gift packaging, to hold tags and little notes….the list goes on! I want you all to share in the fun with these cute little coin envelopes so I’ve included a video tutorial.  I really hope you like it! Let me know what you think; I’m happy to get some constructive criticism,  this is the first video of this kind that I’ve made!  I would also love to know if you do try this out!  I think they are fun to make and I plan on making many of them! For anyone not interested in making these on their own (I know there …

Boys will be Boys!

We went to my hometown to visit my Mom and Grandmother for Easter, and we had a really nice time!   On Easter day we took a walk through the riverside park where they have built a large skate park. It was packed with boys skateboarding from the age of 6 to 46! My boys were super excited about it and immediately demanded that they get skateboards for their birthdays in June! However, I was shocked to see that only about 10% of them were wearing helmets! They were jumping rails (down sets of stairs) and flipping their boards all without helmets. It really worried me.  Am I overprotective?  My boys wear helmets to ride their bikes which seems a lot less dangerous than what those boys were doing! Nevertheless, I was inspired to make this card for the WT challenge on SCS today :”Boy oh boy!”, because my boys will like it! “Look Mom! NO hands and NO HELMETS!” uugh! NO WAY! Stamps: Extreme Skateboard Stampin’ Up!, Cornish Heritage Farms boys, sanded background SU! …

Take Time To Enjoy Your Day

Take time to enjoy your day…a latte! As you may already know, I am a coffee lover!   I need my coffee in the morning BEFORE I talk to anyone, or I cannot be held responsible for what I might muster the energy to grumble at you!  🙂 But I also enjoy a good cup of coffee later in the day too, especially in the company of a good friend.   It’s safe to spend time with me after 10am. 😉 I have a few favorites too, if you ever want to buy me a cup, 😉 my usual from Starbuck’s is a mocha no whip, but I’m happy to drink a latte, or a cappuccino, or in the summer, a java chip! Mmmmm.  What are you addicted to? lol. I cased a card from my Twisted Sistah’s gallery for today’s card.  Darla Ryan is the featured stamper for our challenge this week, and she had loads of cute cards to choose from.   I changed the layout slightly, used the same coffee theme, but used different …

For You, an Inspired Challenge

Lots of leaves to rake, and the kids want to decorate for Halloween! 🙂 This is the card I made for the inspiration challenge on Splitcoast. Wow what a wonderful Etsy shop gallery that is!! Have a peek HERE.  Lots fo gorgeous stuff to inspire your creativity!  I chose this pillow as my inspiration piece for today’s card.

Red Door Warm Wishes

Today’s color challenge on SCS is Red Riding Hood, Always Artichoke and Basic Gray Stampin’ Up! colors. I couldn’t get this red door out of my head, so I had to try something! I think this color red is welcoming and warm and I kept picturing a door with a wreath, so I literally made just that! The panels on the door are scored using my Scor-Pal. The wreath is punched from Always Artichoke cs and Figgy dp., and overlapped in a circle.   I stamped Be Merry from Warm Words by Stampin’ UP! and Warm Wishes by Cornish Heritage Farms Essential Expressions Classic. The background grey is embossed using the Tiny Mosaic folder and cuttlebug. Oh I almost forgot to mention that the handle is a pewter photo turn from the hodgepodge hardware kit.  (Stampin’ UP! ) Thanks for stopping in today!!

Get Quoted!

Hello! Today is Wednesday so that means a new challenge is up and running on our SBS18 Challenge Blog! This week’s challenge was set by Jaime asking us to “Get Quoted”. This is the sample ATC I made for the challenge, using Flourishes Stamp Simply, Coffee with Friends quote. I stamped the clock face from Cornish Heritage Farms Time to Stamp set directly onto Basic Grey Infuse dp. I then stamped the quote, and the steam flourish from the cup.   The coffee cup from Coffee with Friends is stamped directly to dp, cut out and popped up on adhesive dots. Stamps: CHF Time to Stamp, Flourishes Coffee with Friends Ink: Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood all Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Paper: Bazzill Java, Basic Grey Infuse dp Thanks so much for visiting!!   You know I love your company! 😉

Scrappy and Shabby!

Hello! This week’s Ways to use it challenge on SCS was to use up our scraps and make a scrappy card.    I made mine in a shabby chic style. It’s not my usual style but I do like how it turned out and it was  a fun card to make using up my scraps!  And yes, everything is from my scrap pile except the flower, but I made it look shabby by sponging the edges. Even the die cut branch was a discard from another project. The button is from a pile of very old buttons that I’ve had for years. The flower is new (thanks Peggy!) but I sponged on it to make it a bit shabby. The Flourishes lily is stamped directly onto the cs in Weathered wood distress ink. The background is stamped with a CHF canvas backgrounder. Stamps: Flourishes Spring Ephemerals, CHF Paper: DCWV white core pale plum,  Bazzill Basics deep rose Ink: Distress ink weathered wood, SU Bravo Burgandy Accessories: magentastyle flower, Pearl button, purple cord, mini clothespin, Infuse diecut, edge …
