Merry Christmas!  I hope you are having a wonderful holiday!

Abby and Keegan may be the only high school students who still give presents to their teachers.

This year they gave Panera gift cards.  Last year we made the Pop Up Gift Card Holders below and Abby’s History teacher thought it was the coolest thing ever because of the way it popped up.  I wanted to make a new version of the Pop Up Gift Card Holder, but I ran out of time and whipped up twelve of the quick, but cute Santa’s Belt Gift Card Holders using the Envelope Punch Board.

Christmas purse made by Chris Magan.

This adorable Christmas purse was made by Chris Magan.  I love it when stamping friends send me pictures of their cute creations so I can share them with you!  Can you tell the reindeer was made with the Stampin’ Up! owl punch?

If you haven’t headed over to Craft Project Central to leave a comment on my project, please do it today.  I’m randomly choosing a winner who gets a free subscription for the month of December.  You have a really good chance to win because right now most of the comments on my project are from the other designers.  They already have a subscription so they won’t be in my drawing.

My 77 year old father is the elf on the left.  Kids visited his senior living facility and he and his friend were Santa’s helpers.  Dad made a great elf and is an awesome Grandpa to his nine grandkids!

We went to Christmas Eve, Eve on December 23 so we could attend church with my parents before they left town.  Our church had about 100 members when we joined in 1994.  Now there are tens of thousands of worshipers at five locations and online.  You can watch a service online here or watch previous sermons.  We have eleven Christmas Eve services at the West Des Moines church over three days and the 2,800 seat sanctuary isn’t big enough, so several hundred sit in overflow locations.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

    Love your sharings! Gift card holders make so much sense – grandkids are too old for my choices of gifts, but can always use $$$$! Love the Sanda’s belt idea. Will tuck it away for next year.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS Beth to you and your family. Thank you for another year of sharing your stamping talent and ideas with we your fellow Demostrators, and friends.

    Would like to know though, do you share your instructions of how make things. Your POP – UP GIFT holder is so cute, and good for any time of year. Would love to know the know hows, also the PURSE your showed by Magan. If you could email me, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You my fellow stamping friend, and may 2017 truly be a Happy New Year for you.
