Guest Designer for Wish On A Scrap

As some of you already know, Kim of Crafting for Sanity was the lucky winner of the premiere contest kit offered at Wish On A Scrap. All you have to do is purchase the kit & submit one of your creations using the kit to enter into the contest. It is that easy for an opportunity to win the following month's kit for free! Kim did an amazing job with her kit, showcased her work, and won the July Contest Kit.

I asked Kim if she would be my guest designer for the month of July to show off her new work with the July kit. I was delighted when she agreed =) Kim has been very busy with her kit and has made some really beautiful cards. Kim is super creative and even made an adorable little bag. Check out her stuff:

You can read about all of the thoughts behind her amazing work on her blog, Crafting for Sanity. Thanks again Kim for sharing all of your work with us!

Card Box Holder, Cards, & Envelopes

I created this little set as a thank you gift for a friend. I used the Chloe Marie Daisy D Collection paper & Bazzill bling paper for the holder & cards. I used Georgia Pacific paper from Walmart to make the envelopes.

To make the card box, I followed this awesome tutorial on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. I really cannot get enough of this woman's blog. Her directions are so easy to follow & she is so creative =)

On my box lid, I used the Fiskar's Treading Water Punch along the edges. These punches sold out of my store so fast, but I should have them back in stock very soon =)

My cards are a little different; I made my cards smaller and they are 4x4. I also used Stampendous Dot Sparklers in Silver to accent the beautiful paper. I wanted these notecards to be useful for just about anything and that is why I did not stamp them with a sentiment.

To make the envelopes, I used my Scor-Pal. My envelopes are made out of paper that measures 5 1/4" x 10". I scored the envelopes at 4" and 8 1/4", and also on both sides at 11 1/2" when the paper is flush to the right side of the board. If your cards are a different size, please refer to Scor-Pal Customizing Your Own Envelopes.

Thank you for visiting. Don't forget to enter my contest for blog candy =) A winner will be announced on July 9th, 2008.
