Vintage Vogue Flowerpot Card

I LOVE this set!  And I want to call to your attention that the Beautiful Wings die (die cut/embossed butterflies) and the set ‘Vintage Vogue’ are retiring with the end of Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Mini Catalog on April 30th.

I think that this would make an awesome Mother’s Day card, for that special person–whether your mother, or a special ‘mom’ that you know.

You can download the step-by-step PDF now and for a short time more, the full PDF with all four projects I’ve made is available for your $50+ online order.

Gift Tag Holder

I have so much of the ‘Cottage Wall’ designer paper left over from my Stamp Festival so I thought to put it to good use!

At my team meeting last week, we made this adorable ‘tag’ holder (which was an idea that I flagrantly stole from the very talented Becky Roberts who made me one for a private ‘Take 3’ swap at Leadership).  What a nice gift this makes!

And as a funny coincidence, Amanda Coughlin this morning posted her CASE of a Becky Roberts project tutorial she purchased for our swap in January!

The body of the booklet is a 3 1/4  x 10 1/2 inch piece of Razzleberry Red cardstock, scored at 5 & 5 1/2.  The ‘pockets’ inside are 3×5 flat cello bags (#103104) lined in white cardstock (so the tags really show up).  The other coordinating color is Old Olive.

If you made this to hold the 4×6 flat cello pockets, this would make a nice photo holder, don’t you think?

While I used a different designer paper/color combination, I loved her designs of the tags (and hers were WAY more detailed than mine) so I copied three of them with what I had on hand.

The middle mini-pocketbook is fully functional in that it opens!  The pocketbook is a piece of designer paper folded in half and punched with the large oval leaving out the bottom seam so it opens.  The purse ‘clasp’ is the very small oval punch decorated with the Trio Flower (#109183) punch and a crystal brad held shut with a glue dot and the handle is the medium oval punched out and then the scalloped oval punched out above that!

The tag on the right is a flowerpot made from the ornament punch upside down, the leaves is the Sizzlit Die – Stampin’ Up! ‘Little Leaves'(#114511) and again the flowers are the Trio Flower punch.
