Good for you! I am over half way finished with cards and have started thinking about gifts.

I have made quarts of Red Raspberry Jam already. I will also make Peach Jam, Crabapple Jelly and Apricot/Pineapple Jam. Hubby makes a Chunky Salsa, Hot sauce and Cranberry/Pepper Jam for neighbor and friend gifts.

I would love to know what you are going to make.

I picked up some little plastic baskets and long frames at the $$ store (the frames had a mat in them for three photos side by side but the mat can be removed). I got colored pencils, markers and glue sticks at the before school sales. I added a spool of ribbon (the kind that goes on sale for 4/$1 all the time).

I included three craft kits --
1) the makings for 6 cards with envelopes. White card stock for the card bases then solid color card stock for the fronts, then patterned paper, another solid to mat a pre-stamped image and a pre-stamped sentiment. I used line stamps so they could color in the images. I bagged up all the pieces and put on a topper that said "Making cards is lots of fun. Please send us one when you are done."
2) the makings for a name frame. A piece of DP the size of the frame, die-cut letters to spell each of their names, die cuts and stickers in a theme to match the DP, some ribbon, a few buttons and brads. I bagged up all the pieces and put on a topper that said "Put these bits into the frame And make something that spells your name."
3) the makings for a snowman decoration. A rectangular piece of chipboard, a piece of felt the same size (both pre-punched with holes to thread ribbon through for hanging), several layers of solid and patterned paper and a stamped image of a snowman (again, a line stamp that could be colored). I bagged up all the pieces and put on a topper that said "Winter won't be ending soon, So make a decoration for your room."

Since, like so many others, it was a tight year for us, I used mostly items from my stash and the cost of the bought items was relatively low -- under $5 each.

I came across an idea with placemats. Take a square placemat, fold up one long edge, and sew edges on sewing machine to make a pouch. Then make individual pockets from the pouch. I will make the pockets big enough for five cards, envelopes, another smaller pocket for stamps, and gift tags. Ribbon tacked at the short ends of the placemat, can tie this together like a little packet. Will be like a stationery set. I saw some red placemats at Target, I could make my using squares of fabric.

Then I will get the stuff for the hand lotion, and I got cute jars with silver lids at WalMart. I have a ton of scraps, will do gift tags.

This gives me a idea, I am a hobby demo with SU, this placemat thingie idea would be a neat holiday workshop, Christmas in July. Everyone keeps asking me when I am going to start having classes, I just don't want to get too deep into the business aspect, just want to have my hobby at a little discount.

Hmmm, now I got to think.

Hey Cindy,

Do you have a scor-pal? The score-pal site here on SCS has some great ideas with boxes, I finally ordered one, and it stays on my table.

Saturday night, by 7 pm, telling the family to fend for themselves, I am off to my scraproom.

Hurrah for you! Post your cards and let us know when you do.....I am sure I speak for everyone that we could always use more inspiration.

I love those kids kits too....we have nieces and nephews that are crafty and they would be perfect Christmas gifts!!

No, sadly, not yet. But I keep asking for it for Birthdays, Mother's Day and Christmas. One of these days, I will just buy it for myself!! Where did you order yours from?

Those flowers are PERFECT for making a lovely herb sachet or herbal bath too! They promote sleep and are soothing to the skin. One of my favourite perennials for sure.

I have bunches of that in my yard too. I grow it under my climbing roses....fills in the empty space below it.

Watch out, it can be very invasive!!

That's what I like about my garden zone - not as much stuff is invasive here as it is further south!

Hey Cindy,

I didn't order it from the scor-pal site, some other website that offered free shipping, I will dig around and see if I saved a receipt, it was a few months ago. And if I see a free mailing offer floating around, I will give you a heads up.


I came home, fixed dinner, baked a co worker a birthday cake, started laundry, sat on the couch 'just for a minute", and woke up an hour later. I guess I was tired, now can't get to sleep. And I need to be up early, it always happens this way.

You are so sweet to take the time. If I can find the right price, I may just get it myself and stop putting it on wish lists!

Yeah, I had intended to get downstairs to work on a Fourth of July project but, sat down after dinner, dishes, watering plants outside and a walk with DH to catch up on shows we had missed....it was 10pm before I got downstairs. I try to make Friday nights my 'work' nights.

Default I made gifts of my cards

One christmas I was involved in a secret santa and wondered what to buy/make. I made a christmas card to go with the gift and then thought "Gee I like this card I might make half a dozen" when I finished them all I had a lightbulb moment and made a box and placed them all in it and tied with a gold ribbon. Walah my secret santa gift was solved. I have since made these for a few friends. When I make the box I stamp it the same as the card before I assemble it.

Now each year when we have secret santa everyone hopes they get mine. Makes me feel special.

Cool

Hey Debs,

Go to the resource section, there is a gift card holder tutorial, just have to make it "Christmasy".


Ohhhh, my full full tummy is not happy now. Dh and I went to Cracker Barrel for dinner. We go about once a month, so he can get his chicken and dumplings fix, too much trouble for just the two of us. And after months of Weight Watchers regieme, we ate half of what was served to us, he has a nice take home plate for tomorrow, but I am uncomfortable. I had their special chicken by the campfire, chicken, potatoes, corn on the cob, carrots wrapped in foil, and baked. Perfect for WW, but the waitress looked at us and laughed when I told her emphatically, only one biscuit, one cornbread muffin. If she had brought more, just more unhappiness at the scale at weigh in. In the south, biscuits and cornbread is almost a religion. lol

Off to look for some diet 7up.

Thanks for the inspiration everyone!

Last year I did cards, as always, lotion (huge hit - tip, leave some unscented for those who are scent-sitive or for babies), friendship tea, and a few other items.

This year I am hoping to do placemats or coasters, pillowcases, an ornament of some kind, and baking. Not sure what else yet.

Hey Cindy,

Got to scrapbookingalley.com, got a good deal on a scor-pal, and free shipping. I don't think I have seen a better price, unless you had a coupon for a lss that stocks them.

Boo hiss, I have servicemen here in my workspace, can't drag out my "stuff", nothing on TV, they are haivng trouble with software.


Hurry Friday

It was probably me, and I will post some pictures when I get a little more decorated. I got some decor elements up this weekend, and I want to paint a piece of pegboard, cut in squares, then frame those for my scissors to hang on hooks. Dh will have to assist with the cutting, that I am not good at.


And I honestly going to start on Christmas this month. lol

I would love to know what you are going to make.
Got back from my In-Laws over the holiday weekend....they have sweet cherry treees! So today I am going to make Sweet Cherry Jam, touch of lemon zest in it. Looks like the neighbors and in town friends are getting jams and jellies this year. I will probably decorate the tops with fabric and ribbon or twine. I will post pics when that time gets closer, don't want them to get dusty.

Does anyone have a good reciepe for Apricot/Pineapple Jam?

Oh....I had friend saving Starbucks bottles for me....she loves the Mocha Frapp drink. Will use this for treats for my son's school nurses, therapists and office staff. Working on decorating those now with loads of retired SU Christmas DSP.

Hey Cindy,

You been busy, finding all these great ideas. I went to my local fabric shop, and found a Christmas idea book, had a cute idea for a table runner, and placemats to look like large holly leaves. Got me pumped, going to look for fabric today before I teach my kickboxing class. I have muslim I nned to tea dye this weekend, a pillow to design for a friend.

Hurry Friday, I got better things to do than x-ray. Unfortunately, the other things don't pay as well as the x-ray gig, but far more fun.

Hey Patrice!

That table runner and placemats sound really neat!! Care to share name of Idea Book? Or care to make copy of templates????

So fortunate that DH makes very good $$$ so I do not have to work and can take care of house so when weekends come we can just enjoy time together! He tells me I have it very cushy!

Cindy - Do you have the recipes for all your jams and jellies? Would you care to share them. My email is annette@ink-paper-scissors-rock.com

I would love to try some.
Haven't started working on cards and gifts yet. But after reading this thread - I am inspired by all the ideas and fun projects and cards everyone is doing.

I'm keeping it simple....handcrafted card gift sets for my sons' teachers and loved ones.

I do intend to adhere STRICTLY to this when purchasing Christmas for my boys this year: Something you want, Something you need, Something to play with, and Something to read. And of course one "Santa" gift. This will =5 gifts for each boy from me and dad.

Hey Cindy,


I will send you a pm in a few minutes about the patterns. I wish I could stay home, but dh is in the oil business, which has it's ups and downs in Texas. When it is up, it's heaven around here, down, and I am supporting the family, which I can proudly say I can do quite well. When you get used to a big SUV, standing hair and nail appt's, work out classes, I admit I am spoiled, it's hard work being a "gracefully aging" Southern belle.
