http://wheredoesstacystimego.com/. I will be posting more of my new creations there and will no longer be using this one. Thanks and enjoy your Sunday night.
The money holder was made by adhering a strip of blue cs to the inside of the card. I then put a strip of poke-a-dot paper over it and added a staple to two opposite corners. The pictures below are the card and gift I made for their three year daughter. I had this baby paper in my wrapping stash. I don't use it because it has a defect going through the middle of the paper throughout the entire roll. Instead of recycling I opted to reuse it. I flipped it over and stamped the happy birthday image all over it using colorbox chalk rouge.
Then I decided to use the card I made as part of the packaging rather than sticking it in an envelope.
What do you think? I challenge you to find something to reuse before having it going into your recycling bin. I'd love to see what you create...share it in the comments section. Thanks for looking.

This is the printed paper I created.
Here is the card.
This is the candy jar. They all look better in person. For some reason my pics are really dark, sorry about that.
I made this little bag of goodies for a friend. Our boys had swimming lessons together and the last week we didn't get to go because Tanner injured his ear and had to stay out of the water. She kept updating his swim teacher and then grabbed his certificate on the last day of lessons for us. I thought this would be a fun way to show her my appreciation! This little bag is made from an envelope. I stamped the candy all over it and colored them in with sharpies. To prevent bleeding I cut down a 4x6 index card so it would fit into the envelope, then colored in the images. I used my Cutterpede scallop blade for the top design. Make sure you score your envelope before stamping it :) I forgot to do that step first on this one and that's why the many thanks is so close to the bottom and right edge of the bag. This bag is holding 6 of the covered Hershey's nuggets. I stamped the images on address labels and then wrapped them around it. The images are from Studio G clear stamps that I got in Michael's Crafts dollar bins awhile back. The card is 2x2 and I attached it to the bag using an office clip so that it would work for Thursdays challenge at SCS WT229. Then I tied a piece of red ribbon around one side of the metal piece.

The next card is for the shower. The stack
of presents is by katie & co. Both images
were stamped with Stazon Timber brown.

Now we are off to the water slides! Tanner hasn't hit that 48" mark yet so he couldn't go down them by himself. He did have a blast going down them with daddy though!
And of course, a picture of big brother leading little brother and little brother happily following him!
That's it for now. We are off to swimming lessons. Hopefully I will have time to share a few pics from the airshow that we watched on Sunday. Have a great Monday!

I knew I needed it to hold a 20 oz. bottle of pop so I made mine using 12x12 card stock.
This is the card that I made for her when she called and said she passed!
