Cute Gift Card Holder!!! Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge

I found the cutest gift card holder on the Plantin Schoolbok Cartridge.  I set the dial at 3 3/4 which is a speck bigger than an actual gift card.  I used double sided paper so I could have a pretty design inside and out.
On the front side I punched a scallop at 1 3/4" in pink then punched a 1" for the white to write the name of recipient. 

Go to Page:  79

Press Tall Ball set dial at 3 3/4" for paper size. Shift, then press on the bottom line button 8  ( in white) on the 5th row. This one will put the hole in the card holder for ribbon or brad.  If you press the Shadow feature on this you won't get the hole. Either way they are cute. Fold on sides and along bottom with your bone folder for a crisp line.

Here are my two versions of the card:  Can't wait to make some Christmas ones. 

You could also put some solid color paper on the front for their name.  Or just put the hole envelope inside a card.

Make sure you use sticky strip on the sides to hold it together good.

Quick gift for my friend! Before and After!!

My friend and I share the same birthday which is tomorrow. We work together and she loves crafts. So I made up a little something for her. Now for the before picture.:  I got the note book at the dollar store they were 3 for 1.00.  What a difference a little paper makes.  First I just sort of fit the yellow part on the book first then folded the purple over the binder.  Used the extra sticky red strip glue for that.

September 12th, Tuesday at Midnight EST is the world launch of the new Cricut Image.  Plus all day will be crafting, scrapbooking, cards, paper, punches, stamps.  Lots of fun stuff.  You can actually order lots of the stuff now or put it on your wish list.  I have stuff in my wish list.  I will purchase before Tuesday because I want to make sure I get it.  You can't preorder the Cricut Image that is a Today's Special so I am sure it will be a nice package but probably still pricey.  I'm happy just using my Expression for now. I love to buy paper that's half the fun.  So check out the site now*Specia*NewThisWee&prev=hp!sf&lastbc=!2773&ccm=CT

This is the link for the new items this week.  I can't believe they have stickles 12 bottles for 17.95. WOW what a buy.
