 These two cards are exactly the same, but a little different!  The cuts and pieces used are identical.  The each just use different papers, and different stamps for the focal point.  So much you can do with one idea.  Just Mix it up a bit.   Top card uses the OH DEER paper and the lower card uses the City Sidewalks paper.  Top uses Gold shimmer trim while the lower card uses silver shimmer trim.

A Little Thanks


This fun and simple card was made using the OH DEER papers from Close to My Heart .  Although it is a 'Christmas' or Winter pack of paper..... it can be used for many more occasions.....
Each strip is 1¾" wide by 3¾" long with a little dove tail cut out on the bottom.  Use a piece of the zip strip (the stars) then ad your sentiment strip.  Yes the papers are all grey toned.  Beautiful and fun....

                                                         Oh Deer

Gift Wrapping...... and a gift, made easy

Looking for a quick idea for a co-worker, neighbor or friend.  Who doesn't like chocolate.  The fun chocolate bar is wrapped quick and easy yet so fun using Close to My Heart cardstock, paper and ribbon.    Simply wrap a piece of yardstick around the bar and crease it making it more like a box,  Glue the wrapper together.  Decorate as desired.  Punch a hole through the top.  Wrap a piece of ribbon around the candy bar, then slip the bar into the 'boxy wrapper'  Then put each end of the ribbon through a hole and tie together.  When you pull on the tail the bar slides out.  Fun and easy!

Fun Gift idea....



This little gift costs about $1.25 to make.  Ya know those little clear acrylic frames that you slip a photo in???  Choose your size you want,  Cut a pice of fun paper and slip it in where the photo would go.  This one also has flowers adhered to that piece of paper (the red ones) and I have put some gold ones on top of the actual frame!  Glue a post it note pad on the frame, and sit it on short side so it becomes a desk top post it note holder.  EASY, INEXPENSIVE, and your co workers will think you are so brilliant.  Frames can be found at Wal-Mart, Dollar Store etc for usually around $1
