· 12 X 12 piece of patterned paper (double or single sided pattern) for the no-glue Origami Box
· 2 sheets of double sided paper - 5 1/4" x 12" (for the cover, if you are making one of these)
· One sheet of lightweight chipboard - 5 1/4" X 12" (again, for the cover only) (I used a thicker cardstock on this so i didn't need to use chipboard...doubling up the paper made it thick enough.
· Craft glue or glue stick (for cover)
· Ribbon (for cover closure, or you may use another type of closure) I couldn't figure out how to add the PDF file for the diagram for the folds, but if you would like it, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can forward the file to you.

This is the stationary set we made at our monthly meeting this week.
a small note pad and a postage stamp holder. It's supposed to have a holder for a pen
but I forgot to leave room for it!
I was surprised at how simple it was to assemble...
This is another Stationary Box although this one is made using a Simply Scrappin Kit. I made all pieces with paper and adhesive images and still had plenty of paper and embellishments to spare. You can easily make several more cards with the leftovers!

I've just been certified by Stampin'Up! in this great program after going through all the training and then taking the quizzes...I printed my first greeting card and when it arrived, I was amazed at how beautiful the quality!

This little candle is one of the shoebox swaps at our downline meeting on Thursday... I don't know her last name, but "Ariana" brought this for her swap. This is a cute idea, inexpensive, and easy to make using our great punches.

I thought I'd give this card a try....i got the idea from a card posted on Patty Bennetts blog. It gave the link for the tutorial... stamppaperscissors.typepad.com It's Jan Tink's blog! Boy she is such an inspiration! I am always wow'ed when i check out her blog! Anyway, I used the Build a Bear, "Beary Best Friend's" and Beary Nice Wishes and Seal of Pauthenticity sets. The main card is Yoyo Yellow, with inside colors of Real Red and Ballet Blue. Check out her tutorial! And...if you make a card, send me the link! I'd love to see what you did!

I love this Christmas card! Of course, I love anything with snowflakes... This is made with retired Snowflakes set. The tutorial can be found on Splitcoast along with the template. I think I have seen a more recent template...stamps haven't been 39 cents for a while now!

This tree is made from the heart punch. I punched what seemed like a zillion of them and just layered them on tree shaped cardstock. The edges are brushed with white craft ink. I used the 1/4" punch to make the ornaments and i used a retired star punch for the topper. The background is made with Top Note die cut and placed on a Real Red Card embossed with Petals a Plenty.

Like everything else you see, this card was found on Splitcoast stampers. I changed it up a little bit, but I thought this was too cute to pass up! He's made with the oval punches, scallop circle die cut, word window punch, and Boho Blossoms punch.
These are some great cards made especially for me for my "29th" Birthday by my Wednesday night Stamping group. What a wonderful group of ladies! They brought food and snacks and
a yummy cake from Amy's, my favorite bakery ! Thanks Julie Julie! Thanks to all of you for taking the time to do that! It made my birthday even more special! My birthday was actually yesterday but because of the Veterans Day holiday, our class did not meet on Wednesday so they did it early. I did get to use my "Get into Disneyland FREE on your birthday" pass. I upgraded and bought my year pass which is something I have always wanted to do! We are going on Sunday!

This is another punch card found on splitcoast...I altered it a little...the mane is punched with the spiral punch and the extra little pieces were used for his hair up on top. I used the small circle punch for the spots and eyes. The greeting was done on the computer and punched with a circle punch and layered onto the scallop circle punch.

I originally saw this card on Splitcoast Stampers but when I tried to get back to that area to give the right person credit, i couln't get back to it. Anyway...it's a Splitcoast Stamper Gal that came up with this idea. The ladies in my Wednesday night class had asked for birthday themed cards and I thought this was perfect! I punched 6 scallop circles and sponged them with Regal Rose.
The cupcake paper is Soft Suede cut approx. 4x4 then crimped.

made at our downline meeting...there were so many ladies and so many cards to make (it was a shoebox swap) I don't know who made this but she's part of the Stamp In Fellowship group!
Sorry i can't give credit where credit is due but it's still a beautiful card!!

I made this card using the Petals a Plenty embossing folder. I cut a tree shape out of chipboard. I followed the tutorial on Patty Bennett's blog. Once I ran the folder through the sizzix, I used the Real Red stamp pad with the Merry Christmas from the Four The Holidays stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I used the marker to dot the centers of the flowers.
