Craft + Sip

Over the weekend I had some lovely ladies come over and make some cards while sipping on wine…

Craft and Sip

Two of my favorite things for sure…. and everyone seemed to enjoy the evening!!

4 by 3 cards

For one of the projects we made 4 x 3 cards and coordinated envelopes using the envelope punch board.  All you need is a 6 x 6 piece of paper, which is perfect for using the Playful Palette DSP or the A Little Foxy DSP!

The cards used Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo & Sweet Sugarplum.

It was a fun night and many cute projects were made!


Playful Palette Balloon Birthday

The Playful Palette DSP is quite the cheerful set.  I pulled together a set of four cards displaying the plaid pattern.  The colors include black, emerald envy, peekabo peach and blushing bride.  It’s interesting how much color can change the theme of a card.  The blushing bride gives it an innocent and sweet feel.. a card perhaps best suited for a young girl, while the black is more appropriate for that too-cool-for-school teenager.

I used the Balloon Celebration stamp set and Balloon Bouquet punch to create the birthday sentiments.

Have a nice day!!

A Playful Thank You

I am loving my goodies from the new catalog!!

I was exploring with the Playful Palette DSP and the Thankful Thoughts stamp set, and made some fun thank you cards.

I think the new In Colors are beautiful!

Ribbon colors include Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Emerald Envy.  To attach, I used glue dots because they’re small and stick really well.

Thank you for stopping by!

Teacher Gifts — how to package a gift card

Aaaaah, the last day of school!

I’m sure many of you are sending in gift cards to your kids’ teachers to thank them for their hard work and dedication.  Why not spruce things up a bit?  Make the packaging more playful?

I found some small tumblers at Target for $1.50, added a swirly straw, sunblock, lemonade mix, and added a gift card.  I used the Playful Palette DSP, attached with coordinating ribbon, and wrote a quick note on the back…

Fun right?

You know what else is fun?


Taking goofy pictures with your kids!!

Happy beginning of summer break to all, and stay tuned for more teacher gift ideas tomorrow…
