Fruit Stand Card Keeper Portofolio

Hello again. Here's a card gift set I made this weekend with the Fruit Stand DSP, Fresh Fruit and Layering Love stamp sets. I really love this idea when I saw it on online that I just had to make it! It really came together easily and as luck would have it I had all the products I needed to pull it off! This would make a beautiful gift to give to someone who would like a couple of handmade cards to give out. It was fun to put together since I love the colors.

Baby Cards and Cookie Cutter Christmas

Good evening, I have a quick post. We always need a baby card to send with a gift, but of course at the last minute we're buying it because I don't have any made. What kind of a card maker am I? I usually have Thank You and Happy Birthday cards ready to go. So I sat down this morning and made some cute cards with the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, plus my daughter is going to a baby shower this weekend, so it was a perfect time. Now, I need to make some wedding cards .... (next!)

Week of Autumn - Day #4 Halloween!

Hello, again! I hope you're still with me as I challenge myself to post daily with my "week of Autumn" series. Thank you, for sticking with me. I haven't done this in a long time, but I will probably take a break this weekend as I prepare posts for next week. I'm really trying to post more, but working 5 days a week makes it a bit difficult. I guess I just need to get up earlier!

Anyway, here's Day #4, it's Halloween since I just got my Halloween goodies today. Yay! I don't know why I waited. Well, I don't usually send out Halloween cards, but after seeing all the fun papercrafts you can make (and I work at a school) I just had to order and share with you.



Little treat bags made with the Gift Bag Punch Board, Halloween Night Specialty DSP, Cookie Cutter Halloween stamps, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Halloween Night Baker's Twine, Tuxedo Black and Chocolate Chip inks, Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake cardstocks. These stamps are too cute! I love that they coordinate with the builder punch.

You can find my past Week of Autumn projects here: Day #1, Day #2 and Day #3.



Yay, and the new holiday catalog is live today! View the Holiday Catalog online HERE. Of course, I can send you a copy, too. Just contact me at obrienbs@cox.net. Here's a a few pics of what's inside!





Thank you for stopping by, happy crafting!
