Harvesting Memories Blog Hop

Welcome to Harvesting Memories Blog Hop today, hosted by Lisa at Honeybearz Designs. That is our first stop on the blog, so you can hop over there to start. 
Lisa asked us to make something Harvest/ Autumn themed, soooo....
For my project, I used the video tutorial challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club, you can click HERE to see the challenge and for the card instructions.

Here are Twisted Gift Holder Cards that I made for each of the kiddos' teachers. Inside is a Panera Gift card and a little note saying, 
"Thanks for all you do. I am so happy you are my teacher. Here is a bagel and coffee on me.... ( I like chocolate milk though!)"  Sam (Emily or Jessica)
 I was able to make all three card folds in 5 min and then the fun starts... embellishing!!!  For this card, the sentiment was embossed using white powder and heating gun. Also used was 3D sticker embellishment and scallop/circle punches. I think this on is my favorite and will definitely be going to my son's teacher. She has been just wonderful with him.

Here are the other two...

My Favorite Craft Tools and Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone, Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.

Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System Review

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
