Money wallets

Well, it's not long to go now, one more sleep then the big day is with us!!  I bet most of us have been frantically trying to do all the things we need to to prepare for tomorrow recently and one of the things I've been busy making are money wallets.  The teenagers I give presents to all tend to want money as their gift these days so I make a special little wallet envelope to present their money in as I think it just adds a little extra something and they are really quick and easy to make!

You can adapt the wallets for both christmas and birthday and as I've had both this month here are photos of two I've made.  The first is for christmas - I've used Luxe patterned papers, an American crafts topper and the happy stamp from the scribble flowers set which I've stamped in perfect medium ink then heat embossed using tinsel embossing powder.

The second is a birthday wallet I made for a birthday gift.  I used the number and part of greeting stamps from the happy birthday with a cherry on top set.

To make all you need is a piece of cardstock or heavy weight patterned paper cut to 6.5" width and 8" length.  You then need to fold and score (I use a bone folder to get my edges nice and sharp) at 3", 3.5" (this piece makes the wallet) and at 1.5".  Secure the wallet section with two pieces of DST and decorate as you please.  I usually put a blank square on the back of the wallet to write my greeting.

I hope everyone has a lovely christmas and I'll see you all in the new year!

love and hugs to all, Nic xo

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
