It’s a beautiful day here in Arizona City. Hope you’re having a wonderful day where ever you are. It rained here last night and it was cooooold! We’re suppose to have freezing weather this weekend….I just got an alert on my phone a freeze warning until 9 AM Tuesday and a hard freeze warning until 5 PM Sunday. Wow! we’re just not used to that kind of weather here in the valley, up north it’s a lot cooler, I think they’re getting snow.
Well it’s a new year and I turned another year older a few days ago. Wow! How time flies. Well going to try and post regularly I have so much to share with you all. I’m also reorganizing my craft room…still….but I’m going to finish it, I’m determined to finish it. I already pulled out some shelving that I had in there and putting in other cubbies and drawers to get all my stuff in their place. I’m sorting and getting a pile of different items that I will be getting rid of and I’ll post here what’s for sale.

Well that time of year is getting close. During Christmas time when I don’t know what gift to give to someone, I like to give Gift Cards. It does seem a little impersonal, but at least I know the person I’m giving the gift card to can go and purchase something that they really want or need. Below are some gift card holders that I made and I’ve also included a few links of instructions/tutorials for others that I have found on the web.
There’s a few places to check out. You can also go to my Gift Card Holders page that has a list of other ideas.
Thanks for visiting. Have a Wonderful Day!
Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I took it easy and worked a little in my craft room organizing and making some cards.
I love Connie Stewart, she does some great card designs and her tutorials are really easy to follow. I haven’t visited her site Simply Simple Stamping for awhile, so I popped in to see what she was up to and found her series of “Flash Cards”. She has this really smart way of cutting cardstock and making quick and easy cards without hardly any waste. I have a ton of a paper scraps and now I can put them to good use and use them all up. You need to watch her first video of Flash Cards to see how she cuts her cardstock and then go from there. She makes really quick and easy cards using her card cutting technique. Go check her out. Here’s one of her cards that she made using her “Flash Cards” technique. Guess what Christmas card I’m going to case.
Found this awesome pin on Pinterest for tags. Check it out.
