This project includes five over the top cards that each show a different method for holding a gift card inside the card. With this project we explore using the BYOP stamp set and Adventure Bound Designer Series Papers to create five beautiful cards and a lovely storage box to keep them in. You will get the opportunity to use each and every image included in the BYOP stamp set to create cards for five different occasions.

Paper flowers are a great way to dress up any table for a Spring party. Use this floral display around cupcakes, candles, or a cake stand. After the party, you can use the wreath to decorate your door. The neutral colors of the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper will work well with most party themes and home décor.
This Confetti Altered Journal and Prompts Set gets your creative juices flowing!

Baseball season is here! This gift set is for the ultimate baseball fan. It includes a baseball gift box with a customizable key chain, a matching card, and a game-day journal to keep track of your favorite player’s schedule, stats and memories. It is perfect for the baseball mom or dad who wants to chart their little-league slugger’s rise to the majors.
Sometimes you need more than a card to express how much your mom means to you. This beautiful little folder tells her five different ways, and it doubles as a hanging organizer to keep business and appointment cards, coupons, or little mementos. The pockets are the perfect size for Project Life cards, so this can also be used as a Brag Book later. Create a coordinating card and a napkin holder or gift box topper to make Mom’s day extra special. This would make a fun “class with purchase” or a girls’ night out event.
To get the instructions for this pretty project that can be adapted to other occasions, and that was designed by Buffy, just head over to Craft Project Central and subscribe to April! Have a fun stamping day!
Featuring the gorgeous Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper, this set includes four useful items that we all need in our purses – a hand sanitizer, post-it note holder, notebook, and a mini photo album. The saying on the fronts can be customized for a variety of occasions and recipients, or use it as shown for Mother’s Day. This project is great for a club, a class, or a girls’ night out, as well as making a lovely gift.
Greeting cards that stand out usually have a unique design, but another characteristic that gets attention is when the card is a unique size or shape. With this tutorial, create a lovely and useful set of 3” x 6” greeting cards that will stand tall for attention, and then make coordinating envelopes for them using Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Complete the ensemble and make a perfect gift by creating a coordinating mini magazine holder that is the perfect size for holding this set of tall cards. You’ll love this project so much that you’ll want to make an extra to keep for yourself!
An elegant spring-themed gift set perfect for anyone who appreciates cute accessories! The flower pot clutch can hold a small gift and has a removable flower topped lid. The matching wallet has a coin purse, and mini-shaker, you could add a gift card or note in this handmade keepsake. The card tops it all off with its curvy shape and gold embossing. This gift set uses the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper and has gold accents throughout.
Make this pencil holder out of recycled toilet paper tubes and bring Spring into your office or workplace. This hand-made piece will be the talk of the lunch break or party. Give those tubes a new look with a textured finish, and then cover it with pretty flowers and butterflies. Use different textures to bring those images ‘alive’. Great for a stamp camp, or as a class project.
This pretty little stationery set holds everything you need for sending out cards. There’s a place for eight envelopes, eight cards, post-it notes, postage stamps, and a pen. This would make a great gift for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, and any other occasions you can think of. This tutorial teaches how to make the stationery box, and two different card designs. It features the lovely Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and the coordinating stamp set, Painted Petals. This would make a great Mother’s Day class, too.
