Flourishing Phrases Cards & Memories Gift Set

Today’s Craft Project Central project is designed by a new guest designer, Olga Cavanaugh.
The Cards and Memories Gift set is a great gift idea to bring for the Hostess of your next New Year’s Eve Party event, what a nice way to start the New Year than with a fresh new set of cards and a photo album to showcase your favorite moments. This is a very easy to reproduce project and great for your next Class or Workshop, you can also make one for a Birthday Gift or any other occasion. The Flourishing Phrases Cards and Memories Gift Set tutorial includes four cards of different occasions and one accordion style photo album all this packed in a beautiful keepsake box. In this tutorial you will learn how to build an easy keepsake box with a magnetic closure, how to make your own tassels and embellishments, how to quickly create a cute photo album and a set of cards.

If you would like to see the complete project, and learn how to make it, you’ll want to subscribe for the month of December. With your subscription, you’ll get illustrated, step-by-step instructions for 10 wonderful projects for only $10! You can find out how to gain access to a bonus eleventh project over at Craft Project Central.

My project for Craft Project Central will be posted on December 21 and I’ll let you know then how you can win a free subscription to Craft Project Central in December.

Rose Wonder Card Set

I’ll be sharing ten projects that you can find at Craft Project Central this month.  Here’s Regina’s beautiful ensemble.

Treat yourself to some relaxing watercolor “therapy” and, at the same time, create a gorgeous set of greeting cards, complete with a very easy-to-make packaging.  Since this card set has a relatively thin profile, why not create several gift sets to have on hand going into the new year?  They certainly won’t take much storage space, and you’ll be so glad to have them when you need a lovely gift.


To get instructions to Regina’s project (and many more to come), just subscribe to December at Craft Project Central.

Superman and Abby got a tree put up in the Sunroom, but the lights and decorations are still not up.

Stampin' Up! Double Pocket Treat Holder made by Ruth Sollberger. Please see more card and gift ideas at #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

I love it when people see something on my blog, recreate their own version of it and send me a picture.  These gorgeous Double Pocket Treat Holders were made by my friend Ruth Sollberger from Australia.  She is a Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) group leader and made these for her ladies for Sharing Day, which is the end of the BSF year.  I love what you made Ruth and thanks for sending me a picture!  Ruth used the gorgeous Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Here’s the link for the directions to make the Double Pocket Treat Holders in three different sizes.

Superman and I have had another crazy weekend.  We moved all the furniture out of the family room so the carpet could be cleaned and stretched.  We moved everything out of my old stamping office so the carpet can be cleaned before Steve’s office moves back in.  I spent hours moving 13 years of stamping supplies and trying to organize it in my new space.  I love the new space by the way.  Here’s a sneak peek.  I have a lot more to do before it’s all done.

Steve also power washed and stained the deck, built new steps off the deck and stained those. I’ve never moved so many things without actually moving to a different house.  We have two couches and a piano in our kitchen and our kitchen table is in our new Sun room.

We took some time out to celebrate Ryan’s 21st birthday today!  Ryan is a sweet and smart young man studying to be a Software Engineer.  He is man after God’s own heart.  We are so proud of him.  For his birthday dinner he wanted me to make Scalloped Potatoes and Ham, and Abby made her famous Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate cake.  Yum!

Hope you had a great weekend!
