Hi Friends!

The holidays are coming! (I know.. time needs to slow down, right?!)

Whether you host tables at craft faires, have lots of staff to gift to, family across the globe or just want the ease of the “perfect gift” – Gift Card Holders are a fabulous solution! I have nieces and nephews of various ages and year after year, I have found that their ideal present is a Gift Card. Easy on me and easy on them!

Did you see the super cute coffee drinking piggy I shared last week? Gift Card Holder! Today’s project is the same layout but a completely different look! I used items from the upcoming Mini Catalog (spoiler alert – another sneak peek!)! I know, I know… you can get your crafty little hands on these products on TUESDAY! It’s just a couple more days to wait…





If you would like any of these Stampin’ Up! supplies, or others, and you don’t have a demonstrator, I would love for you to shop with me. In the month of, July please use the Host Code below and you’ll receive happy mail from me!
