Punch Art - Girly Golf Birthday card

Here's a punch art card I made for a good friend's birthday who enjoys playing golf. I cased it from a card I saw a few years back (sorry don't know who to give credit to for this one) and just "girlied" it up to a female card. All made with Stampin' Up product except the "19" number stickers! Funny that we are always looking for male card ideas then I decide to "girly" up a male card for a !! Thanks for looking.....Sue :)

"Breathable" Soap Box Gift Idea - Made with Stampin' Up!

I recently stumbled across some great video tutorials on Youtube made by a talented UK demo, Sam Donald of "Pootles Papercraft", she has made quite a few 3D gift ideas which are one of my favourite projects to make. These particular "breathable" boxes for handmade soaps have a punch hole near the top which allows the soap to breathe and the lovely fragrances to waft out from them, I love Aromatherapy!
Lucky for me I am able to purchase varieties of fragrance and colour soap for a very reasonable price at my local market and am actually able to coordinate the soap colours with the great colour range Stampin' Up! offers. I already made a dozen or so and plan to make quite a few more for Christmas gifts :) By the way if my calculations are correct it is now 71 days till "Ho Ho".........thanks for looking, Sue :)

Gift Bow Bigz Die Card Ideas

Hi all, I've been playing with the "Gift Bow Bigz Die" from the Stampin' Up Seasonal Catty and it sooo versatile!! There's lots of different ways to use it besides the obvious making bows for gift boxes, which I reckon is alot cheaper to decorate gifts by making your own than buying gift toppers, even from the cheap shops! As you can see I've used it for birthday, christmas and wedding cards here and I think it would be great for baby ideas,girls and masculine projects as well. Not to mention great for some scrapbooking pages as well! I definitely think this die was well worth purchasing (my customers have bought it too and are also really happy with it!). Thanks for looking......have a good day, Sue :)
