Why I was away! Gifts to Give

So sorry!
Unexpectedly got caught up...with these,
Chic' n Scratches Rag Quilt Bags
using the SU square Scallop.
Plus some shopping, wrapping, mailing and making some bridal shower invites of which I will show you later.
Pictures are not so great cause I forgot to take them at home.
Make great gift of which they became, and are quite inexpensive....unless you are like me and have to buy a sewing machine. Which I did for my Birthday, I needed one for all the mending that has piled up and always wanted to learn.
Thanks Becky Handforth for being a great teacher.

The top is a smaller version of Angie's and I did 2 of them.
The Bottom a larger version, is the very first after Susan ripped apart 2 I had already made, wish I had pics of those. They make me laugh now.

Back to the grind of gifts to give.

The Best Gift to give!

Coffee!!! Tea!!! Hot Chocolate!!!
This is the best coffee maker around. (my opinion)
No I can't say the name.
But if you recognize these k-cups you know exactly what I'm talking about.
I received this coffee maker for mothers day and have to say that between everyone I know that has the maker (we share pods) I think I have tried every flavor, brand, and boldness...oops never tried the decafs, there's just something not right about those.

They have teas, sweet and herbals. Hot cocoa's, some I will buy more than others and my kids are getting their favorite wrapped under the tree.
I could go on and on...
but let me tell you about the gift instead.
You know those Pretzel bags, that's what these are.
The top Pic can be for anytime you know someone is going to receive the maker or just needs to try the new flavors a RAK maybe.
It's using the tags Die...which is another thing you absolutely need. The above tag Is a Sophia, Andrea Walfords very creative sister inspired punch art.
The below Pic I cheated and used Lorries Bag Topper,
definitely for the Holidays.
Maybe you will have one under your tree.

This is not so much a box, as it looks more like a suit case.
These can be whipped out in no time, you get 2 per 8 1/2 X 11 Sheet of CS.

Getting Good with a Hobby Blade because of these boxes, Stampin Up has the best for paper crafts and I use it all the time.
Most of my boxes require it.

9:30a- 1:00p EST US only
Why would you do that...
Cause I'm going to give you your shipping free (must call for free shipping) a 6.95$ value and send you this box as a Thank You!

Gifts to Give Week I

I have so many gift that I just might continue this all Month.
This week I am showing some boxes for gift cards. If your anything like me and feel gift cards are impersonal...doesn't mean I don't like to receive them!
I feel they need a little something to go with em.
Say maybe some Chocolate!
This box fits a gift card and some chocolate sticks I found at my local Pharmacy.
The Box folds flat for storage and another use at another time.

This weeks boxes were going to be a class I hoped to have this month, they are just perfect for the little things and a gift card.
I created them with a little inspiration.
This week I will be giving for a day one of the rough draft ( in Pencil and scanned still working on the Professional one's, hence the reason for no class this month, but for sure next month) PDF's of one of the boxes you will see,
All you have to do is request it.

OK it will be Fridays box so on Fri email me or leave a comment with your request.
Happy Monday!

Gift of Cards!

Hey Y'all
I'm back I had a great and unexpected 5 day weekend from the wonderful (being sarcastic)
Nor' easter our part of the world got.
Virginia Beach in case your wondering.
Flooding was the worst I have ever seen in this area and I have lived here all my life.
That includes the Hurricanes we occasionally get.
BUT! not as bad as some floods I know some of you have been through or witnessed.
I feel for you all cause that is some scary stuff!

On a lighter note, A lot of house work and stampin was done which has put me a head
I made these simple one layers for a friend for her Birthday, she gives a lot of Christmas cards. Just a little masking, dry embossing and a box to put it all in.
Took me 30 mins to make 10 cards.
Need help designing your cards this year...
Let me know.
Off to my Shoe box you that card Friday.

Happy Wednesday!

Class! All prepared for you!

Here's a sample box of a class I'm co-hosting with Lorrie...
This is not the box we are doing just one I have done and given away already.
This one was filled with small stamping items to give to one of Lilli's friends for her Birthday, pre-cut 3x3 cards, a small stamp set, some spots, and bling... what girl doesn't like bling.

Wait till you see what we did with this for the class.
It's not to be missed!
Includes the paper pattern and the items inside.
Bring your cameras, there are several samples to be seen of different ways to do this box.
Details in my class section up at the top!
Have a nice weekend!
