Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Retro Fun!

Happy Tuesday!  Here is my project for our retro Terrific Tuesday Challenge...

I made a gift card holder from an cassette case.  I cut the insert to size based on the original insert.  Next, I cut the cassette from the Silhouette store and stamped Happy Birthday.  The main sentiment is stamped on a shape from my very favorite Fiskars cloud punch.  "Happy Birthday" is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Mini Messages and "Totally Rad" is from Blast from the Past.

Here is what I put inside...

I added a pack of Juicy Fruit gum to go with the gift card - I think that this makes a fun little gift card holder.  In case you don't have any cassettes laying around, try Goodwill - I got mine there for 69 cents!  :)

I hope you will come play along with us at Scrappy Moms Stamps and show us your retro project!

Sneak peak #2 and a bonus

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Just a quick post to share a thank you card I made...

I cut the decorative shape/shadow and the heart from Lacy Labels. Then I added the ribbon and stamp from SMS Many Thanks set - Voila, done! :)

Here is a picture of the full Many Thanks set...

Now for the "bonus" - my daughter wanted to make a project too...

We have had this cute little unicorn stamp forever and she had the great idea to stamp him with the mustache from Blast From the Past.  This rainbow paper works perfectly with him and she added the sentiment and ribbon to make herself a bookmark.  (I told you in my last post the we always need book marks! LOL)

Here's a picture of Blast from the Past...

Thank you for visiting today - I hope you enjoyed our projects!  I will have more for you in the next few days.

Introducing 2 New Scrappy Moms Stamps - Blast from the Past & Many Thanks!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday!  Thank you so much for joining me to f the 1st day of Scrappy Moms Stamps July release.  My 1st project is from Blast from the Past...

My daughter and I are avid readers and seem to lose bookmarks left and right, so when I was thinking about a project I remembered this cute alligator from Create-a-Critter.  I used my Gypsy to weld a rounded rectangle to the shadow of the alligator to make the base and then added the layers.  I couldn't decide if I wanted to used patterned paper or not so I did both.  :)  I added tiny gems for a little bling.  

Here is the full Blast from the Past photo - 

The second set being released this month is Many Thanks!  I know that I never seem to have a Thank You card when I need one.  We designed Many Thanks to help you increase your thank you card supply.  :)

Thank you so much for stopping by - I will have more projects from these stamp sets all this week as will the rest of the Scrappy Moms Stamps DT (on my right side bar).  

Have a wonderful week-end!

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Hit the Beach!

Hi, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by to see my Terrific Tuesday Challenge for this week...

What is it? You might ask... it's not a card, it's not a scrapbook layout, it's not a box!?!?  Here, let's see if this helps...

I remembered seeing this somewhere on line a while ago and thought, I think I can re-create it from memory.  So here's what I did - I used one blue 4x6 piece of paper and one white 4x6 paper and used my scalloped edge punch on    one end of both. Then I lined them up together so the white piece stuck out just a bit and glued them together.  Then I folded down the scalloped side about 1 inch and folded the other side so it nesseled under the fold. 

Next, I punched a hole on each side thru all three pieces - the front, tucked side and the back of the fold.  When I was done with the embellishment from Pack Your Bags and embossing my sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps Quirky Quotes set, I threaded twine thru the holes the yellow circle and tied a knot  That holds the whole project together - simply slip your roll of Lifesavers candy int the bend of the sleeve.

I hope you had fun visiting, be sure to link up you beach project at this weeks Terrific Tuesday Challenge for a chance to win a Scrappy Moms Stamps set of your choice!
