February Hostess Gifts

Yesterday evening I had the last stamp club meeting for this month. And with that I now can share the hostess gifts I gave.

I made each hostess a Mini Magazine Holder with 6 note cards + envelopes inside:

And here is it in a different color:


Another one, same but slightly different:


And a close-up of one of the cards:


When I started making the note cards, I made the textured layer 5 1/4 by 4 inches. But now decided with my last set, that I really like them best when that layer is 5 by 3 3/4 inches!

I’ve used several different embossing folders on the cards and they really are pretty elegant even though they are so simple.

I think I may hold a class next month on these, so stay tuned for the details!

Oh, one funny thing (or sweet!?) I wanted to share! At one of the events where I gave away one of the brown magazine holders, one of the ladies asked where she could find the pretty Designer Paper!  You see, it’s just plain cardstock that was randomly stamped in white craft ink with the branch image and in Early Espresso ink with the little butterfly from the “Sweet Summer” set. It is a FREE set in the Sale-a-Bration catalog!


  1. What a wonderful compliment for someone to mistake your stamped cardstock for a DSP!!! These are great & I LOVE the simple embossed cards!
