Blog Hop, Stampin Up!, BJ Peters,

Welcome to the October Creative Inking Blog Hop.  This month the theme is Gratitude.  As I reflected on this months theme, I was grateful for sooooo many things!   Since I couldn’t share them all, I am going to focus on 2 things.

My Gratitudes to share

  • Sharing how I express gratitude to others with gift cards
  • Sharing how I am grateful for being my own boss!   (If you’ve ever had a challenging boss or co-workers, you’ll know how grateful I am!), Country Home, Country Lane, Gift Card Holder, Stampin' Up!


I LOVE giving gift cards as presents and even as little surprises!   A $5 gift card to the Dr’s nurse who worked you into a full schedule is always appreciated!  But the gift card has to look super cute too!  This gift card holder features products from the Country Lane product suite., Country Home, Country Lane, Gift Card Holder, Stampin' Up!


This gift card holder design has a pop up for the gift card in the middle, a sweet surprise when you slip off the belly band!  The Country Home stamp set is perfect for coloring with Stampin’ Blends.  And the greetings are perfect for sharing your gratitude.  As I made this card, I realized that I have almost used up the Country Lane Designer Series Paper pack!, BJ Peters, Stampin' Up!, Be your own boss

I mentioned the other thing I am grateful for is is being my own boss!   I can tell you that I love my boss – and her spouse!  Stampin’ Up! has afforded me amazing opportunities to grow as a person, meet amazing friends from all over the world and add to my families income.  If you want to love your boss -feel free to ask me more about joining my team.  There are openings for those who want a discount on their Stampin’ Up! purchases or those that want to build a business.  You can find out more information here.

Here is another Gift Card Holder using products from the Frosted Floral product suite in the Holiday Catalog.  (this is one of my favorite product suites in the Holiday Catalog!).  The Shimmery paper in the Frosted Floral specialty designer series paper is certainly showcased on this gift card holder., First Frost, Frosted Floral Designer series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Gift Card Holder


Actually I made this gift card holder into a Congratulations holder.  As I made it, I thought it was perfect for an upcoming wedding.  I love that there is a space for me to write a note right beside the gift card.
