Well, I'm back and have a ton of things to share. I may have stopped blogging for a bit, but I definitely didn't stop stamping!! This month, I actually went to a scrap booking convention with my wonderful sister-in-law. We spent two days being crafty and learning new techniques. LOVED IT!
So, on to sharing a card....or two :-)
Last weekend, my dear friend Jamie (aka other friend among the crafting here on this blog who is even worse than me in actually posting a project!) invited us over for her son's birthday party. I decided a little cash was in order, and therefore, a cash holder was needed.
At the scrap convention, I learned a fun way to fold my cards and I think I'm going to be addicted for a bit...oh well...its fun and all. Here is the card folded up.
And here is how the card looks when it is opened. I thought it was a perfect way to hide some $$$.
Back in July, I also had some fabulous girls over for a Christmas in July Stamp Class. We made a few cards, decorated a candle, and made some gift tags. We had a ton of fun. I hope to have another class in October.
Here are the projects we made for the class. Of course, we had to make everything with our theme in mind...Christmas!
I didn't take a picture of the candle, but everyone got so creative with theirs. It was their chance to think outside the box a little. Many included rhinestones on theirs. They were all beautiful!
