Sad story: I won a prize from E.A.D. designs but I didn't find out until today! Whoops... so I lost the prize :-(
I don't blame her... I should have checked up on it.
Oh, well.....

So I haven't posted on here in a while, because I was really busy and my computer wasn't accepting my camera so I couldn't put my picture on my computer! But it's okay because it worked today!

Last weekend I went away as a "delegate" for my school at a convention of private schools! I had a really great time meeting girls from all over the US and Canada.
Before I left, I made a quick thank you card for my host, who turned out to be the sweetest girl ever! (We were set up in homes in the place we stayed.)
Here it is:

Supplies used:
brown cardstock
EK Success 3 inch scallop circle punch
K&Company cardstock (Que Sera Sera pad)
Uni-ball white gel pen
Ranger ink
MSE stamp
random ribbon!

Sorry this is such a lame post! School has been so busy lately!
Please leave a comment! :-)

Purse card!

My neighbor asked me if I could make a card for her friend's birthday. She was organizing a bunch of people to chip in for a nice bag for this woman and they're giving her a gift certificate for the bag. So my neighbor asked that the card have a purse-theme or bag-theme. So, of course, I went straight to my subscriptions on YouTube to see if any of them had any cute idea. And I found the CUTEST idea from Dawn Griffith on her YouTube channel! The best part is, it's not just a card, it's a gift card holder! Exactly what I needed!
Check out the video on it here and subscribe to her channel! Here is the blog post on it. All measurements can be found on her blog post or YouTube video.
So here's my take on the card:
The inside:
I added a little gift-card pocket by using a 4 1/2" by 2 1/2 (I think!) piece of cardstock and scoring it by 1/4" on 3 sides. Then I cut away the bit where the score lines overlapped in the corners, then folded the scored parts in, added a ton of adhesive, and stuck it down. Oh, and I cut an opening with a 1" circle punch.

The card in it is just a random card I had so I could make sure it fit.
What it looks like when I hold it up!
Oh, it's so cute!!
I had to improvise a little because I don't have a die cutting machine so I don't have the Top Note die. But I found a picture of it online, and I resized it and fiddled around a bit and it turned out okay.

Supplies used:
K&Company Wild Saffron paper
Cream cardstock
MSE stamp (Birthday)
Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen
random ribbon (haha!)
EK Success 1" circle punch
Button Ups adheisive button

I showed it to my neighbor and she really loved it so I hope her friend does, too!

Again: ALL CREDIT FOR THIS ADORABLE IDEA GOES TO DAWN! Let her know what you think :-)
