Gift Card Holders

Friday's Free-4-All Project at Bella Blvd: Creative Ways To Give Gift Cards
The Design Team has made some really clever and unique can see them all at

To create this gift card holder choose any shape die-cut (larger than a gift card) and have 
a roll of foam adhesive handy to make a pocket.

 After die-cutting the shape, place the gift card on the back and mark its placement 
(depending on how much of the card you want to show). Adhere the foam tape to the edge of
 the markings and then attach to the card front. The gift card will slide down into the pocket with ease. 
Layer on a smaller die-cut shape, buttons and cute stickers!

Supplies: Countdown to Christmas- Believe Paper; Borders Paper; Christmas Paper; Tree Park Paper; Alpha+Bits; Button Market- Tie Dye

Find a die-cut shape that is a bit larger than a gift card and cut it out twice. 
I've used this cute jar shape by Sizzix and stitched the front and back papers together with 
a zig-zag stitch around the edge.

 Decorate the front with a border of photo-corner stickers that have been layered together and top 
with a sentiment sticker. Quick, easy and a great stocking stuffer!
Supplies: Christmas Countdown: Alpha+Bits, O Tannenbaum, Daily Details, Captions

That's all for today!  Things are winding down for the 2013 year and
I don't have too many projects waiting in the wings to share before Christmas.
Manufacturers are focused on the Winter CHA show and those of us lucky
enough to create things for their booths will be working steadily between now
and the New Year.  Lots of great things to look forward to and I can't
wait to see all of those lovely new releases and share in the excitement with all of you :)


  1. These are adorable! Love the idea of creating a pocket on the card front with foam tape! :)

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
