I’m flying in with a quick post today and also a giveaway announcement. More on the latter below but first this gift card pocket.

Do you find that as a maker you can’t leave shop bought items alone without giving them a little crafty love? I’d bought this white and gold striped gift card and it came in lovely packaging with a glittery gold mock envelope but somehow it didn’t feel right unless it was given a handmade spin. I took a piece of gold glitter card and fashioned a pocket with a My Mind’s Eye journal card as the liner and a sheer vellum front stamped in Versamark with the sentiment from the new Eat Drink Be Merry set from Clearly Besotted (due for release tomorrow at 10pm UK time) and gold heat embossed.

To dress the pocket I added a couple of die cut snowflakes using the Snowflake Trio dies; one in Neenah Solar White and one in more of the gold glitter card. A final accent was one lone sequin and a glittery gold enamel dot.


Have you seen the #sharehandmadekindness challenge from Jennifer McGuire? If not you can check out all the details on Jennifer’s blog. Well inspired by this wonderful lady I am not only making an effort to send more cards than I have ever before but I’ve also had a craft clear out and will be giving away a crafty parcel on every project post this month! Oh and that includes my posts prior to this one here and here.

All of these parcels will contain a stamp set or two (pre-loved), if I have the dies I will put those in as well. In addition there will be some extras, for example, a selection of 6×6 patterned papers. Please leave a comment on each of my posts this month and I’d be delighted if you would subscribe to get my posts straight to your inbox. Comments left by 11.59pm EST on a Sunday night will be eligible for a draw on the Monday, with the exception of the last week where comments should be left by Monday and I will pick winners on Tuesday:

  • Posts between 01-08 November, leave comments by 11.59pm EST 08 November, winners picked Monday 09 November.
  • Posts between 09-15 November, leave comments by 11.59pm EST 15 November, winners picked Monday 16 November.
  • Posts between 16-22 November, leave comments by 11.59pm EST 22 November, winners picked Monday 23 November.
  • Posts between 23-30 November, leave comments by 11.59pm EST 30 November, winners picked Tuesday 01 December.

Note product will not be in original packaging as I will reduce the parcel weight as much as possible to keep postage costs down.
