Gingerbread and Coffee Gift Card Holder

This is one of my very favorite folds because I like to give gift cards as gifts.

Super simple to make! Here are some helpful hints:

Get Well Card and Thailand Photos

I was inspired by Shelly Godby’s card I saw on Pinterest and finally tracked down her blog and post HERE. I changed it up a bit with some current products (however, the bandaged part of the gingerbread is retired). I made the cookie sheet by scoring twice 1/8″ apart from each other, and then punching with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

The products used are at the bottom of this post.

Here are some more Thailand photos! I’m still a bit jet-lagged!! It was totally worth it, though!

This photo above was taken at the entrance of our resort.
There’s all kinds of creatures there! Some of them (like this one) will make you jump!

One of the trip highlights was the Elephant Sanctuary! Here we are feeding these beautiful animals! There is a big controversy over there with the elephants! Many are being rescued and brought to this safe haven, where they won’t get abused anymore. When they are trained so you can ride them, they are quite abusive to them. We had to watch a video on it, so we would understand why they formed the elephant sanctuary. Many people shed tears while watching the video when you see what they do to the animals!

Here we are with our “elephant poses”. Silly fun!



watermarked-photo-2I just love the little Eskimo in the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle! You can use this little eskimo all winter long!  Notice the SPARKLY DAZZLING DIAMONDS on the fur trim, really cute! See recipe below.

Gift Card Holder with Cookie Cutter Christmas

img_8557img_8556Here’s a gift card holder that we made at our Cozy Craft Retreat last month. I just love the Cookie Cutter Bundle! These little gingerbread are hanging out on a cookie sheet and you can see that one gingerbread got part of his head bitten off.

Reindeer Noses

screen-shot-2016-10-21-at-3-05-44-pmimg_8565Here’s a fun reindeer nose treat for Christmas! I just printed the tag from the computer.

The Cherry Cobbler piece is 8 1/2″ x 2″, and embossed using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. The Designer Series Paper is 6″ x 1 3/4″.


Christmas Banner and Frame! Last of the Banner Classes This Year!

img_9406Next month will be my LAST BANNER class! It has been so much fun planning these classes!

It’s hard to see in this photo, but the “believe” letters are in Red Glimmer Paper. You can add your own photos to the mats.

I will have a local event in Cave Creek, AZ, on Nov. 21st where you can come and create the banner and if you need the frame, you can purchase that as well. Please refer to my class schedule HERE if you are interested in attending the local event.

IF you are out of town, and would like the kit and pdf instructions, please email me and let me know. Kit cost is $25 plus shipping. You will receive a full pack of Candy Cane Lane DSP AND a full pack of clothespins, plus everything you see here in the photo (excluding the frame). Even the felt ball garland is included! NOTE: NO IMAGES WILL BE STAMPED OR PUNCHED OUT. It is a good idea to purchase the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle to go with this banner kit!!!!

I’m so sorry, but if you purchase the banner kit online (and not local), the chicken wire frame isn’t an option because the shipping is just too much!

RSVP Deadline is Nov. 7th
