Holiday Workshop Sneak Peek #3

Four gift card holders are next for my Holiday Workshop preview. This annual workshop is December 4th, from noon to six p.m. So if you're in the Melbourne, Florida area and want to play with us, just let me know.

Here's a look at all four gift card holders inspired by Julee Tilman, a great designer I like to follow. Check out her blog here when you get a chance.

Look at all those Starbucks cards! I can't ever bring myself to throw them out. I love em!

Here's some close-ups of each one...

For all of these, I used Hobby Lobby's "Ornamental Christmas" pack from Paper Studio. I believe this is Hobby Lobby's exclusive line, but I would be wrong. Either way, I love the paper.

Stamps are from Close To My Heart as well as all the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge cuts you'll see. Buttons and waxy flax are from Close To My Heart and other trims and such are from my local craft store. These were very fun & easy to make, thanks to the Art Philosophy cartridge!

I've seen this great twine everywhere in magazines and other blogs, so I stocked up on some from The Twinery. I'm always a little late with trends.  

I can't remember where I ever got these great paper clips, but I've had them over a year now. They look like candy canes and are a perfect embellishment for holiday cards and tags.

Gotta run for now. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!


  1. These are fabulous! I must give them a try!

  2. These are great! I confess that I don't throw my Starbicks gift cards away either!
