This is the last item to share from Stamping in the Woods with Linda Bauwin and I wanted to save just for today! It is easy to see how Stampin’ Up! products can create not only cards but home decor for all of the seasons and occasions thru out the entire year.

In this “HOME” picture frame  a new “O” is changed out to a new image that reflects that new month.

I am saving the best for last! This is the final item that I created at Stamping in the woods with Linda Bauwin. The top photo is the 4 1/2 inch square box and the bottom is the cards inside.  What deserves a mention but is not photographed is the matching envelopes. The unique feature of the envelopes was that they were standard envelopes cut in half with a coordinating piece of designer series paper as the flap. SO COOL!

Gift Card Boxes

I learned to make these with at Stamping in the Woods with Linda Bauwin. The first step is to cut an Acetate Card Box in half (for those who need the numbers that’s just about 2 7/8 inches)

Not Always Picture Perfect

Clearly this isn’t a card or for that matter a perfectly inspiring image of a project that everyone is going to pin to their “must try” boards. Maybe more like a Pinterest fail?!

So why am I sharing this? It kind reminds me of my stamping journey. What you see in this photo is my real sliding glass door covered with the real paper snowflakes Sidney and I made together for an advent activity.

When you start anything new you are so excited to do that activity that maybe you don’t read the instructions but just jump in – hence my square snowflakes (I am not sure what shape to call Sidney’s but I am sure knows the fancy polygonal name). Pretty, but not what we were going for. Then you tweak a little – now we have the round ones. Finally, we sought some outside help, better know as google -for some free printable templates viola! A beautiful 8 sided object that looks like the snowflake we all had in our minds.

We could have taken down the oddly shaped precursors and only kept the template ones (which we are still making because they have been so much fun) but then it wouldn’t be real. You see those first snowflakes much like the first cards are heartfelt pieces of happiness delivered with pride.

We know everything gets better with practice and with that I encourage you to make this year’s holiday cards, take the time to send out real birthday cards instead of just a Facebook post or write that thank you card because the greatest gifts are the gifts of the time and love spent making these gifts by your own two hands.
