Have you had enough of Christmas Cards yet? Well, you will be happy to know that this one will be the last for a little while. I still have a couple to share with you but I will do that over the next month or so. This way you may be able to make an early start for next year – scary thought hey.
Once again, I am sharing a cute little Gift Card Holder created from a standard Envelope. Love creating these little things & so very handy to use throughout the year.
The DSP is from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue – Be Merry while the greeting Merry & Bright is from the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set, available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue which ends 2 January 2018.

I certainly hope you all had a lovely relaxing & happy Christmas spending time with family & friends.
I created the card today some time ago, originally for a blog hop but it completely slipped my mind.
When I first saw Beachy Little Christmas in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue, I saw a wreath using the shells. I’m quite happy with the result. In fact, we eventually did it in one of our classes & the ladies loved it especially when they could see another way of using the images. I must say the set suits our lifestyle down the coast of Australia.
To finish off the card I scattered Pearl Basic Jewelsaround the embossed sentiment & the DSP.
I opened my emails this morning to find a lovely surprise – SU! are once again offering FREE Shipping for today ONLY – Monday, 11 December. This offer ends 11.259pm tonight so get in quick while you are able.
It is the perfect opportunity as today is also the last day that if you place an order it will arrive before Christmas. After today, they do not guarantee that you will receive your goodies before Christmas.
If you saw my post on Monday, I shared with you one of the cards we created in our Creative Cards Class showcasing the gorgeous Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. Grab it while you are able as it is one of the items retiring from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
Over the next 2 weeks I will be sharing with you the Christmas Cards we have been creating in our classes, all very different but all with a bit of a wow. In fact, the ladies are loving them & keep coming back so that must be a good thing, right?
Today’s card is one I actually cased from Pinterest to get my creative juices flowing using the gorgeous Year of Cheer Speciality DSP.. Thank you to Connie for your inspiration. Of course I’ve put my own spin on it.
The sentiment is from the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set. One which I think has been a little overlooked this year. It is so easy to do with all the new product to play with.
This is one of the cards we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday. The ladies loved it – simple but with a bit of a WOW when you open it, as it has a Pop Up Gift Card Holder inside. We actually created one similar to this one a couple of years ago in our Technique Class. It is always good to revisit older creations & revamp them. Mind you, with the DSP we used on our card, you could use it for any occasion – just omit Santa, the trees & change out the sentiment.
Be Merry DSPis from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue while the stamp set “Hearts Come Home” is from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. The stamp set is also available in a Bundle.
You can find the free tutorial for the card & the holder inside by clicking on the link below which includes all measurements (metric & imperial) as well as a list of supplies used to create by card.
Be sure to check back in a couple of days as I have another Gift Card Holder to share with you.
My card today is one we are creating in Cards @ Toogoomtoday using the Half Full Stamp Setwhich is available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. It took me a little time to grab this one as I wasn’t too sure if I would like it or not BUT I LOVE it! In fact I know quite a few ladies that would just love this set & card….. Fingers crossed the ladies today do too.
I actually took my inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest but made it my own, sort of! Thank you so much Amanda for your inspiration.
The Whisper White is actually Shimmery White& has been embossed using the Holly EFbefore being layered onto a piece of Pool Party CS& then to the Base Card – Sahara Sand. As I am a lover of non-traditional colours for Christmas, I am actually loving these colours together & may have to play more with them. Pink Pirouette & Sahara Sand also spring to mind.

It is Tuesday & that means a new technique for you to download & play with. Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand. This week we are highlighting Bleaching. What I love about this technique is that it is always changing. My card has changed a lot since I first created it & not every petal is the same.
This is one of the cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our class. I am happy to say the ladies loved it. They also enjoyed playing with the technique too….. I keep forgetting to take photos to share with you as their cards turned out beautiful.
These techniques appear on my blog every 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month, along with instructions for a card using the technique. The Technique Tutorial is available for download by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials Page, file in a folder & keep on hand to use or to refer back to at a later date.
Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for your classes, workshops & demonstrations. It just means that all the work is done for you, except of course your samples.
