Narrow Note Card Shopping Totes

These gift card holders look like little shopping bags.  There are two pockets inside, and I am using one for a note card and one for a gift card.

Here’s a closer view of the accordion-style pocket, made from one Narrow Note Card envelope.

The note card itself is cut down to better match the height of a gift card.  I simply cut off one inch of the note card’s length.  (If you wanted to use the full height of the note card, you could – you would have to add to the length of the Powder Pink cardstock accordingly, and your tote would be taller.)

Make sure to scroll past the instructional video to see two more examples – this project is very adaptable to other papers and themes.  If you are receiving this post in your email, click here for the video.

 

 

 

I used the Picture Perfect Party Suite here – with a 1″ strip of designer paper and a 1/4″ strip of Lemon Lime Twist along the bottom of the bag.  I used a 1/2″ strip of coordinating paper on the note card.

This one uses the Tutti Frutti Suite.  Again, I have a 1″ strip of designer paper on the bottom of the bag and a 1/2″ strip on the card.  The pear on the card is popped up on circles – 1 1/4″ Real Red, 1 1/8″ Lemon Lime Twist (scalloped) and 1″ Crumb Cake.

Waterfront

The two stamp sets I have used on today’s card are my top picks from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  They can cover a full range of occasions for men and women, young and not-as-young .  Both sets include two-step stamps, and that takes the fun factor up a notch.  Here’s the best part…they are only $17 each!

“Waterfront” is a set of 16 stamps that you can use to create beautiful scenery.  If you like to actually stamp a lot in your stamping projects, this is for you!

Don’t let the name fool you on this one.  “Picture Perfect Birthday” is not just for birthdays.  The party blowers, confetti and greetings are great for many occasions, and the designer paper that goes with this set is fabulous, too.

A Little Wild

Here’s another of our Card Buffet cards from this week’s class.  It can easily be made in pink or blue – I used Soft Sky.  I was so happy to break out a bundle I got quite a while ago.  It is called “A Little Wild”, and you can see how cute it is.  In addition to the bear, it includes a lion and an elephant.

I will be back with a post later today to announce the winner of my Blog Candy drawing.  You can enter by commenting on last Friday’s post – click here for full details.  Comments must be entered on that post by noon EST to count as an entry.  I do have a class into the afternoon today, so I will draw a winner after class, in the late afternoon.

My Favorite Fruit

The strawberry from “Fruit Basket” is my favorite fruit in the bundle, but they are all so cute – and all so easy to create, thanks to the Itty Bitty Punches!  You can see the full stamp set below.  The Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack includes punches for the strawberry, pineapple, pear and watermelon.

This is a card we are making in Card Buffet this week.  I used a 3″ strip of designer paper from the Bubbles & Fizz collection as a backdrop for my tag.  The Bubbles &Fizz collection is one of the products you can choose for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration.

Beautiful Peacock

It’s so easy to make a great card with “Beautiful Peacock”, one of the stamp sets you can choose for free with a purchase of $50 during Sale-a-bration.  I simply popped the peacock up on a few circles – I can’t say enough about how useful our layering framelits are!  You can get them in circles, ovals and squares.

Sweet Soiree Suite

Here’s another example of a card inspired by the paper.  I used a 3″ square of Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper with a few stamps and framelits from the suite.  The Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.

Alaska Achievers Blog Hop – January

Welcome to the Alaska Achievers Blog Hop for January!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog (Chris Slogar) or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the projects.

I chose to use the Tutti Frutti Suite – it is so yummy!!  I love everything about it, especially the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack!

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to make a bag for Narrow Note Cards.

The Fruit Basket Bundle and Tutti Frutti designer series paper offer unlimited possibilities for cute projects.  I decorated our precut and scored Narrow Note Cards.  I also added a piece of coordinating designer paper, punched with the 2 1/4″ circle punch, to each envelope to simulate envelope liners.

On my pineapple card, the designer paper measures 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.  I used the Everyday Label Punch (held over from the 2017 Holiday Catalog) and the Stitched Oval framelit that cuts a 2 1/4″ long oval.

The Night of Navy print here measures 2″ x 4 1/2″, and the Real Red strip is 1/2″ x 3″.

Finally, my pear card uses a strip of designer paper measuring 1″ x 4 1/2″.  I used the smallest Stitched Circle framelit, and slightly larger framelits from the Layering Circles Framelits.

You can see that the possiblities with these mini stamps and punches are endless!  Besides the fact that punches make projects quick and easy, here’s what I love about this bundle…

 While these punches may appear tiny and fussy, they are very forgiving.  The punched shapes are slightly smaller than the stamped images.  That means you don’t have to align everything perfectly to get a good result.

The video below shows how to create the bag.  If you are receiving this post in an email, click here for the video.

If you are like me, and you just love these sweet little note cards, you may also be interested in the boxed sets of note cards I showed earlier this month using the Picture Perfect Party Suite.  Click here for that project.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop today!  Remember that currently you are at my blog – Chris Slogar – so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next, and enjoy!
