TRD: Christmas card

for this flip card i used  Christmas Gift digi kit

i LOVE using this kit..there is soooo much included.
papers, ephemera,
envelopes, tags, & sentiments.

i cut the card base out of kraft card stock
using my Sil Cameo,
 then cut the panels out of the TRD paper.

i used a sentiment "ticket" on the front, 
as well as some pearl bling.
the star is from Miriam's Crafty Supplies. 

on the inside i included a pocket, 
with a tag for a special note. 

this card is simple, but i had to make quite a few
of them, so keeping it simple is better.

thanks for stopping by....

hope you have a ..

TRD: gift card holder

this week using the "Christmas Gift" full size journal kit from
Tsunami Rose Designs, i created a cute little
gift card holder.

using my Sil Cameo i cut it out using the paper.
i used 1 paper for the outside, decorated the front
w/ pearl bling, flowers
and a metal embellishment and large flat back pearl 
 i had the honor of being selected to use some
of her embellishments on this week project.  :)

the inside box w/ open window was made using
a different paper from the kit. 
which is where the gift card can easily be seen.

finally i added some red ribbon, and
white fiber trim as the closure.

i think this will make a cute presentation for someone this holiday.  

thanks for stopping by.

Scrap & Craft Boutique banner

i was asked a while back to make a banner 
for Lizzy Jose's (Elizabeth Santo) physical store.

she told me the colors were black, pink, and cream/white.
she also asked it to be mixed media style.

sooooo....i cut all 19 banner pieces by hand out of burlap,
then layered lace and cheesecloth (which i Glimmer Misted pink).
i then added the flowers, pearl trim, and black Chinese braid.
the letters i cut w/ my Tim Holtz Chip Block die, 
and glittered myself in black and pink.
i added the holes/eyelets, and used black
twine to string the pieces up.

this was the 2nd banner i made for her, as the 1st got lost
in the mail...  :(
hope she likes it and it goes well in her store.

thanks for stopping by..
