Recipe for Holiday Cheer

The recipe cards slide into the pocket
I often have requests for my recipes so I decided to give out recipes as 'gifts' this year.  I created a very simple card using A.J.'s Digi Gingerbread Paper, which you can find here.  I made a pocket on the bottom of the card large enough to hold a few recipe cards and used a couple of acrylic stamps to make the sentiment plaque.  I distressed the recipe cards to give them a homey feel and bundled them with a nice shiny ribbon.

Falling for you


The 2 huge maple trees in my yard have lost their leaves and I have been in an autumn sort of mood, so I created this fall themed card with Amanda's loveable owl couple.  You can find this digi stamp here.  I printed my sentiment out on some patterned paper and used some stickers as embellishment.

Just for You

Tag, you're It.
Since it is now November, I have to admit that the holiday season is coming.  I made a tag for a Christmas present using the Santa Turtle digi stamp from A.J.'s Digi Shoppe.  Please find the Santa Turtle HERE.  I used Fantasy Shimmer cardstock for the first time in making this project. (I liked it very much and was pleased that it did not lose much glitter on my work surface.)
