Wintergreen Wednesday

November 28th, 2007

I’m on pins and needles as my custom stamp cabinet will finally be moved into the house in about 2 hours!  I’ve emptied everything out of the old cabinet and cleared the way to my stamp room and I can’t seem to concentrate enough to sit down and pay bills or do anything else very productive, so I thought maybe I could manage a blog entry.  LOL!

I’ll tell you more about the cabinet when I get it inside and get some photos of it.  For now let’s just say it’s been several months in the making!

While I’m waiting I thought I would share the sweet little gift card holders I made for my stamp club members.  I like to give them each a little something in December to show my appreciation for them and to say Merry Christmas. 


Only my Fantastic Club Members know what’s inside.  *wink* 

These cards are based on Sharon Johnson’s instructions on her blog here.  Essentially a half sheet scored at 2″ and 6″ with a velcro closure under the image panel.  Sharon’s post was a lifesaver for me when I realized I hadn’t made my gifts yet and some of my girls would be coming to pick up their orders in a couple of hours.  I was able to whip up 9 of these fairly quickly and I think they turned out really cute.  Paper is Wintergreen dp along with Soft Sky and Celery cardstock and the stamp set is Merry & Bright.  Like I said before, if you don’t have this set hurry up and order it before the end of the week!  You NEED it! And how did we get along before SU came out with the scallop circle punch?  I swear I use it for everything.  There’s almost no point in putting it away.  I can hardly wait to see what new punches will be in the new catty in January.  I can’t believe how addicted I am to punches.

Oh and I want to say CONGRATULATIONS TO HELIO AND JULIANNE!!!!  What an awesome season of Dancing With The Stars!  I’m very happy they won!  As many of you know, I taught for and managed an Arthur Murray Dance Studio for 7 years (teaching ballroom, latin, country, etc dancing to adults) way back when, so that show is very close to my heart.  If you’ve ever thought about taking lessons, I say DO IT!

Thanks for stopping by.  I’m off before I start rambling about a bunch more topics…I ramble when I’m excited.  Hopfully I’ll have some pictures tomorrow.

    Wow Jami – I learned something new about you — I didn’t you know you were a dance teacher. I hope your cabinet is everything you were hoping for – I can’t wait to see it!

    Woohoo for Julianne and Helio! They definitely deserved the win! I never miss the show, either, also being a former Arthur Murray instructor! Can’t wait to see what “Dance Wars” will be like! Love your giftcard holders, too! One more thing – GO PACK!!!! Here’s to 11 and 1!!!!!

    Cute gift card holders!

    I was happy with the way DWTS turned out-they are such a cute couple and can she dance! He wasn’t bad either. I would have also been happy with Mel B and Max (they were both great!) but thought Helio, with no training, deserved to win. I can’t wait for next season-about the only thing I watch on tv. Neat to know you taught dance! tfs

    These are adorable! I ALWAYS think of you when I watch DWTS! *GRINS*

    How interesting to learn you taught ballroom dancing. That’s very impressive….adding to your list of incredible talents. DWTS is sooo very entertaining I think I watched every show this season; it was over the top! Helio and Julianne were so deserving of the win!

    What darling gift cards…perfect paper to use. Bet your club members loved them.

    I’ve been a fan of your work for quite awhile and am now also enjoying your blog…it’s delightful.
