Prepping my Graduation Money Holder Cards!

Graduation will soon be around the corner, and I've got lot of request again for this year to make graduation money holders.   So I'm starting to work on different ideas and will be posting them up as I get them completed.   Here is one of them and I went with the school colors of Green/Yellow as a replica color for Honokaa High & Elementary School here on the Big Island.    I also used my envelope punch board to do this money holder, I didn't receive my number die on time so I used my Die-Namics stamp for this one.   So I finally got my happy mail in and received my order a day later, but now I can do mass production since I have everything I need to complete them.   LOL!   For this sample that I made I didn't take a pic of the Velcro sticky back that I have for the inside flap will show it on the next one.  

Thanks for peeking in - enjoy your crafty moments..
See ya soon!

Birthday card / Treat holders!

It's a start of a new week, hope your weekend was awesome... We started to do some cleaning in the back part of our house, a project that has been neglected for quite some time now!  We have a huge dog kennel and the fencing in the back of it, is starting to disintegrate so hubby needed some help in getting measurements and re-shuffling all of his tools that he had stored in the stalls of the kennels.  Boy what a nightmare, came across centipedes, coqui frogs and they are not to my likings, LOL!  Now that the cleaning is done, we just need to decide on putting up the privacy wall.
Any how here is another project I did with my WeR Memory envelope punch board did this a few days ago and finally finished it off.   These treat holders are like a bag in the box simple to make with using (1) 6 x 6 designer paper for each treat holder.   The theme of her birthday party is Pink & Purple.  For the flowers I used my Spellbinders added a purple brad from Doodlebug, tag/sentiment (My Creative Time), to tie it off I punched a hole with my crocodile punch added baker's twine and wrapped my Hershey nuggets.  Punched my butterfly with Martha Stewart and added some rhinestones from Taylored Expression.

For the card I had fun coloring her up, she was one of the digital images that I chose from my winnings of $7.00 that I won from C.C. Designs blog hop on Eva's (Crafting This & That)blog.  If you haven't been to her blog, Eva is one fantastic crafter her coloring is just amazing.   Thanks Eva for picking me on this win.....Here's Phoebe Tad Pole, love her skinny legs this fits perfect for the birthday girl.   She was colored with my favorite markers, Spectrum Noir and copics, embossing folder is from Darice, sentiment from Island Scrapbooking, washi tapes and a big purple gem.

Well it's off to my next project - see ya soon!

Yappy Birthday!

Here's another birthday card that I need to make for another member of the family... It's Maile's 6th birthday and she loves pinks and any thing to do with puppies... In fact she has a toy chihuahua she calls "Baby".  It's so wee with big tall ears!.   I think, I mean I know she is going to love her card... LOL!

For her card I used the digital image from Digi Stamp Boutique and it also came with the sentiment.  Colored the images with Spectrum & copic markers, added glossy accents, added a strip of purple washi tape, papers from MME, floss for the balloon strings and balloon die from My Creative Time.   This is so sweet, don't you think so?
Enjoy your rest of your crafty day and see ya back here real soon~~

Birthday card for Keoni!

A quick post to share a card that I made this morning!  I know I've said this many times before but here is another freebie digital image that I got and didn't write down where or if I had won this or not.... But thank you who ever the illustrator is, I had this in my file just as long as all the rest of my images with out no names..... (ugh)!
Anyhow here he is colored up and just the perfect image for a nine year old that loves to skateboard.   His a replica of the image, I gave him all the color tones that Keoni is and loves to wear.  LOL!  Colored him up with  a mixture of copics and Martha Stewarts markers.  The embossing folder is Quic Kutz, the stars are from Die-Namics and the laser cut sentiment from Island Scrapbooking.  

I was supposed to be working on a  new project over the weekend, but hubby want's to work in our back property.... We see how it goes!  LOL!  
Enjoy your crafty weekend and see ya back here soon~

Tea Pocket Holder!

Aloha Friday peeps!
Here's a cool project I finished off last evening... In fact I did (2) of these triple pocket tea holders but only could show you one for now, LOL!  The other is for one of my DT project that is not due for it's posting yet.... These are gifts that I made for some besties of mines that I walk with in the mornings.   They are simply adorable to make they can hold cocoa packets, or ghiradelli  chocolates in the pouches too.  For this gift I added (3) packets of Lipton Green Tea.... The more matting you put on your base holder the more sturdy you base holder gets.   The base is cut at 7 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 & 4 1/2, and from there you just let your imagination take over in decoring your pouch.  I actually have matting on the front  & back panels and the inside panels.   Then I added dp papers (American Crafts) to all 4 panels.  If you look really good my ribbon is attached first before matting the front and back panels,  my Stampin Up ribbon is cut at 20".  My front panel images are from (Love you a Latte)  Cricut cartridge, the teapot was cut at 3"and I distressed the  edges using Tim Holtz distressing ink.  The sentiment below was cut at 2" and I added some liquid pearls to make it pop... Looking at the photo it seems  the glare of the lights made it seem like their is a smudge, but in real it's perfect as can be.  On the left inside panel I use my Spellbinders (Label One),  although I left it blank just in case the recipient wants to recycle this to give to someone else.  
Now, on the right hand side where you see those (3) pouches I cut (3) pieces of 4 x 6 1/4 scored each side at 1/2" and scored on the 6 1/4 side 3 1/2.  On the larger side I corner round the edges added matting on the front of each pouch and use sturdy two-way tape.  Added a button and twine as an embellishment.   
I hope you give this a try, you don't have to make it (3) pouches, you can make it two and it still will look awesome... FYI- you can also add those pouches on the left side too, now wouldn't this be perfect for a Mother's Day gift?   Something to think about!  LOL!

Enjoy your crafty weekend and see ya back here real soon!
