Gift Card Pockets for Everything!

Hi, guys!

Looking for a quick way to spruce up the next gift card you give out? I’d like to introduce you to my Colorful Gift Card Pockets!


These little pockets are super easy to make, plus they’d work for giving away some cold hard cash too. They are also a fun way to use up some of those patterned paper scraps (or gigantic mountain of not-quite-used patterned paper because you are addicted, like me) you might have laying around.

I’ve got a quick tutorial on how to make them (including DIMENSIONS for the base) over the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. Please check it out, and, maybe, just maybe, make a gift card pocket of your own. I tell you, it’s so easy

Hi all!

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge //

Back again with one more 14 in 14 card for the love card challenge card with Ashley. (Whew! Say that 10 times fast!)

Typewriter Love card by Teri //

Just a bit of a patterned paper (from Doodlebug and Crate Paper) and some random bits (washi tape, sequin, doily and staples) on this one. If you look really close, you’ll see that I did a little stamping too. Where? Well, it’s on the paper in the typewriter. Just stamped that “Feb 14” phrase with a roller stamp from the office supply store.

I’ve always loved using a date stamp in my scrapbook so it was extra fun to find a way to use it on a card.

Anxious to see Ashley’s take on the challenge today. Be sure to swing by her blog.

Be back again tomorrow.

Hello again!

Back again with another 14 in 14 love card!

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge //

Today’s card is a simple and mostly flat one. Sometimes, I get caught up in the fun of being all clunky junky and adding lots of embellishments. Today is not one of those days.

Salt and Pepper Valentine's Card by Teri //

Played it quick and straight here. I was super digging the salt and pepper shakers (cut from a piece of paper from Doodlebug) and just really built theĀ card around them. Added a few pieces of patterned paper next to and above. Slapped them onto cardstock and then added some more patterned paper (from Crate Paper).

Finished the whole thing off with an itty bitty bow tied from twine. What? You wanted something totally flat? I tried. šŸ˜‰

Can’t wait to see Ashley’s take on today’s challenge. Be sure to visit her.

I’ll be back again tomorrow.

We meet again! Another day. Another card in the 12 (Christmas cards) in 12 (days) series with my pal, Ashley.


This is today’s card.

Convo Christmas by Teri

This is a complete stash busters card! I’ve had the speech bubble stickers from Doodlebug Design and chipboard snowflakes from Pink Paislee in my stash for quite awhile (…. or what feels like forever). I pulled them both out when we started the challenge and threw a secret challenge to myself to use them. So I did.

Again, really simple card. I threw a little patterned paper (also from Pink Paislee) onto the card and then added the speech bubble stickers and then the snowflakes. I had two sheets of stickers so I made another card similar to this.

This is another simple card that will head into my stash of cards to give to a couple of my mom’s neighbors at Memory Care. Hopefully it will make them smile.

You are up, Ash! Can’t wait to see your take on today’s challenge.

Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop


Hi all! I’m taking part today in the annual Memorial Day Blog Hop with Operation Write Home.

Operation Write Home is a great organization that provides handmade cards for soldiers to send home to their loved ones. I love that! And I love that it gives all of us as cardmakers a chance to share our love of making cards!

I made a card inspired by one of Operation Write Home’sĀ card sketches. I used sketch 118.


I took some creativity liberties, using washi tape rather than scalloped borders. I also drew a line around the inside elements.


The supplies I used were: papers from the Sea to Shining Sea collection from Simple Stories; hey stamp from the Favorite Flowers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp!; and washi tape from Doodlebug Design.

To find links to everyone taking part in the hop, go here.

Thanks for swinging by today!
