Have you started making your Christmas cards and gift tags. Me, too. The 2015 Holiday Catalog has some great kits this year. My sister-in-law and I got together and made tags using the Oh What Fun Project Kit on page 5. We had lots of fun crafting together.
Here are a few samples. The kit makes 30 tags, 3 each of 10 designs. The instructions were very easy to follow.
Get some friends and family together and spend the evening making gift tags. My sister-in-law and I ended up with 15 tags each and enjoyed a Sunday afternoon together.

I'm sure everyone has seen the new craze, Pocket Letter Pals. I wondered if I could make little envelopes to fit into the 2.5 x 3.5 pockets with the Envelope Punch Board and finally I got the measurements down.
Here is a picture of my embellished envelope. As you can see it fits perfectly.
Here are the measurements.
Paper 5x5 square
Punch at 2 1/8
I made mine using Stampin Up products I got from Sale-A-Bration
Designers Series paper Best Day Ever and Accessory Pack button and ribbon.
The heart is punched using the Sweetheart Punch and I stamped it using Calypso Coral ink and the stamp set Little Sunshine. I made the banner using the banner punch and Coastal Cabana card stock.

The challenge this week is to use items from the Sale-A-Bration and Occasion catalogs. For my card I decided use the stamp set Little Sunshine and the Sweet Dreams products featured on pages 38-39 of the 2015 Occasions catalog.
I think this collection is adorable. I chose Marina Mist for a boy themed card. Blushing Bride would make a pretty pink card for a baby girl.
Here is a list of what I used and product numbers if you would like to CASE my card. Visit my website at kimogden.stampinup.net

These little Easter Basket's made using the Envelope Punch Board make great treat holders. Mine hold 5 Hersey's eggs. You could use any chocolate candy you like.
Here's how I made them. You will need the following items.
6 x 6 square of card stock
envelope punch board
ribbon and buttons
eyelet for tag
scalloped circle punch
paper grass and candies
Place the 6 x 6 card stock in the envelope punch board and make the first punch at 1 3/8" then score. The next punch is at 4" and score. Rotate the paper and line up the score line punch and score. Continue on all sides. Use corner rounder at the top of the envelope punch board on all corners
This is the shape you should have.
The next step is to cut the card stock on the score lines along the longest tabs on each side. Cut up to the horizontal score line. Now punch your handle by lining up the two largest tabs. Crease all lines and your ready to assemble. Use adhesive (I used glue dots) on the inside corner of each side piece.
Now just decorate. I made a tag and stamped the cute chick and sentiment You Crack Me Up from the stamp set "For Peep's Sake". I used coordinating ribbon and buttons. The clothespins are stamped with eggs using a stamp included in the set.
If you would like to make these using the Stampin Up products I used I will list them below. The ribbon and buttons were Free items with $50 purchase from the Sale-A- Bration catalog, Best Day Ever Accessory Pack. You can visit my website and order at
I promised I would be fusing my Cricut with Stampin Up products and here is my first collaboration. I cut my favorite bunny from the Cricut Sampler. The sentiment is from "For Peep's Sake" from Stampin Up. The papers I used are also from Stampin Up.
So without further ado here's my card.
