Gift Ideas

Today's share is of some fun to make post it note holders. I saw the idea using the daisy die somewhere but I'm sorry I don't know where! If this was done by you please let me know, I'd love to give you credit for such a wonderful creation!
Sorry I don't have a picture of the side view. The top is an angled piece attached to the straight back piece. This is all done with a single strip of paper with only two folds then you add the small part for the pen.

I used the Greenhouse Gala DSP to back the top part of the "stand" and to cut out the smaller daisy. Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip cardstock was used to create the rest. The center of the daisy is one of the gorgeous Antique Brads (love these). I had purchased this monogram post it note pad on clearance at one of the office stores and plan on giving this one to my mother in law whose last name begins with S!

Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Mini CASE (well mostly)

One of my favorite Christmas decorating essentials is the snowman. He can be big, little, old, new...well you get it! I LOVE snowmen! Naturally when I saw this card in the Holiday Mini I just had to recreate it. I changed a couple of small things but the general concept is the same. He just makes me so happy!

Hope you enjoy it too! Have a great Friday...The weekend is near!

St. Michael's Scrappin Queens

Wow, sorry it's been so long since I posted! This past weekend I was invited to be a vendor at an annual scrapbook event held at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Lecompte, La. A small group of amazing ladies started four years ago with this idea to raise money for the church. They have worked very hard to make it the successful gathering it has become.  This years theme was Scrappin in Hawaii! I met some really sweet gals and laughed so much with them. Here is one of the make & takes we made. I'm not totally sure if I CASEd this or not but it was a great card to make and thanks to the one who made it!

Paper: Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla Cardstock. Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper.

Stamp Set: Day of Gratitude

Accessories: Ribbon-1/8" Taffeta in Very Vanilla, Decorative Label Punch,Sponges, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Leaves Die and the can't live without tool-the  Big Shot die cutting machine!

Season's Greetings

Good Saturday Morning! I'm so happy to have beautiful weather today even though summer is trying to move in for good it seems! We are ready for fall & cooler air around here :). Today's card is one that I submitted for a Holiday swap I was in. As a Stampin' Up! Demonstator I'm able to chat, learn from and visit with any SU! Demo out there, and there are so many talented ones that share there secrets and techniques. The Christmas tree was stamped and cut out (don't gasp...it's really easy with the sharpest ever SU! Snips!!) and layered with Dimensionals. More trees were stamped in the background by stamping off, a technique where you stamp on scratch paper first then stamp your image where you want it. It creates a muted less intense image. My Christmas Tree topper is one the "diamonds" we now have. Anyone that knows me will tell you that I'm a punch and tool junkie LOL so I'm loving the Decorative Label Punch...so easy to get great design without too much work.

I love comments and please email if you have any questions! To shop and/or order any of the products listed visit my website at http://www.pam.stampinup.net/
