Just A Note

I spotted a card on Pinterest the other day and knew I wanted to make one very similar. I loved the simplicity of the embossing folder and the printed sentiment.
I've mounted mine very slightly differently and also added some black silk ribbon but it's still almost a direct copy.

I carried the 'just a note' theme one step further and made the card into a money wallet.

Shot Glass

Not a card, I've either been too busy or not in the mood for paper-crafting lately. Because of the bad weather card club had to be cancelled the last few weeks, I think that affected my mojo a lot.

At a local gift shop I spotted these shot glasses.
The 'Happy Birthday' is lovely and sparkly in real life and if I can figure out how what they used to write on the glass I'll be making some similar ones myself.
I'm wondering if it's a glue gun with a glitter stick but I'll definitely be looking next time I'm at a craft shop, see if I can see something suitable.

Because of certain retail companies folding recently and not honouring gift vouchers it has really put me off giving them as gifts. I don't like giving cash as a rule but sometimes it's hard to know what to give instead.
So I decided to 'jazz-up' a cash gift and put it in the shot glass.

I wrapped the glass in coloured tissue and placed it in a tall cello card bag and tied some curly ribbon round. It looked so nice I forgot to take a photo ;)

Sentiment is Paper Smooches
Spotted lines stamp is Hero Arts - the actual stamp is larger so I just stamped half of it here.
Inspired by a Nichole Heady card.

This was a present from my friend Yeeting. I liked it so much I made some myself!

It's air-dry clay that has been rolled out and stamped into with a rubber stamp. It's then been cut with a biscuit/ cookie cutter, a hole made at the top, and left to dry for a day or so.

Everything used (except the clay) is by Stampin' Up!

This is my entry into "The world's most boring card 2013".

I bought a set in the sales, it seemed like a bargain at the time, but I'm a bit of a loss as to what to do with it.
It's a rubber stamp with matching embossing folder so you get some depth to the image but it's quite large so seems a shame to cover parts of it up...

hmmm think I'll need to trawl Google and see what others have done with it, steal some ideas.

Tag Calendar

This was a Christmas present from my lovely friend Maria.
You can't tell from the pics but it's nice and chunky so should be safe in my bomb-site of a craft room.

Each month has papers and embellishments that match the season/ time of year, very clever.

Thanks again Maria!
