Gift Card Holders and the Winner!

I wanted to share a couple of quick and easy gift card holders I have made recently.  I have since added an eyelet to the top with some ribbon to hang them from the tree but forgot to take pictures.



These were made using My Creative Time's Embossed Gift Card Holder die and the Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set.

Treat Holder for the Christmas Tree

If you have followed my blog recently you would have seen a couple of treat holders I had made to put on my tree for when friends visit.  Today is another type of treat holder but these will be for the nieces and nephew.  I used the Stampin Up Two Tags die with Pink by Design's Flirty Girl stamp set.



Instead of a treat I have enclosed money!!  What child doesn't love money??!! 

For those of you looking at this and wondering what kind of money is that?  Well it's Canadian money!  Each coin is worth $1.00 and they are what we call Loonies.

Make sure to leave comments on all the posts this week as I am giving away the Flirty Girl stamp set by Pink by Design.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Guest Designer – Sarah from Pink by Design!!


Happy Wednesday!

Today I am guest designing for my friend, Karey- on her blog- Creative Craft Corner

She is giving away the Pink by Design Flirty Girl stamp set– and asked if I would make a project using this set πŸ™‚

Well, of course I said yes–because I LOVE stamping with Pink by Design stamps!! πŸ™‚ There are tons of sentiments to choose from, they are easy to work with- and I love that you can see exactly where you are stamping when you use one of the pink or clear acrylic blocks!

I thought I would make these CA-UTE elf legs into a card for my kids to give to their ELF, Chex.

Remember, you can make any shape into a card, by simply duplicating the shape, introverting it and then welding the pieces together. πŸ™‚

Dec 14 2011

I added jingle bells to the toes, and inked the edges- The KIDS LOVED IT, and I am sure Chex will too πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Candy Card and a Giveaway

I wanted to make a simple shaped card and found this piece of candy in the Celebrations Cricut Cartridge.  That shape was with a few pieces of candy so I used my gypsy to hide the pieces I didn't want to use.



I used Mr. Cricut Crazy's Christmas, Christmas stamp set! 

Now on to the giveaway…

I wanted to celebrate my birthday a little different this year and do some giveaways!!  I have some awesome guest designers to help me out this month so make sure you stay tuned to see their projects.

All you need to do for a chance to win is this…..leave a comment!!  I decided I am not going to use random.org this month and instead I will write your name on a piece of paper, put them all in a hat and let my kids draw each winner.  If you would like extra chances of winning all you need to do is share it with your friends.  For every person that leaves a comment telling me you sent them you will get another entry.  Simple right!!

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge December Blog Hop


Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop
You should have started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning.
For my project I used the Handy Man Cricut Lite Cartridge, Just Because Cards and Freshly Picked Cricut Cartridges.
I used my gypsy to figure out all the sizes. The house is from the Handy Man Cricut Lite cartridge and is cut at 4.53. The gingerbread man is from the Just Because Cards Cricut Cartridge and is cut at 1.39. Lastly sign is from the Freshly Picked Cricut Cartridge and is cut at 1.00.
I also used My Creative Time's XL Label Borders stamp set for the Santa and the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch for the snow on the roof…add in some Divine Twine and I have to say I am pretty happy how it turned out.  Who knew the Handy Man Cricut Lite Cartridge could make something like this!!!
