Stamp Club Projects - Quick Gift Projects

This month's stamp club, I focused on quick gift giving. These two framed projects were demonstrated using a quilling method ( click here for a demo of quilling) for the flowers and using My Digital Studio to design the interior of the Menu and To Do lists. I found these ideas on Pinterest and thought I would create  them for our club. Just add an inexpensive frame, a dry erase marker and you have a quick gift for a neighbor or teacher.

Gift cards are always a "given" around the holidays so I also included 2 gift card projects.

The coffee to -go cup was completely CASE'd from my stamping friend Kathy Whitten. She brought this idea to a stamp group and I modified it using my Stampin' Up! products. I was able to create the top of the cup using Print Shop since it is constructed of basic shapes. I already have this GC holder earmarked for a special teacher.

The second gift card holder is a real quickie and an example of how MDS can make your life sooooo easy during the holiday hub bub. The paper and trees are from the digital kit " Frosty Day". I just love the bright cheerful colors from this set and best of all this card holder can be created in about a minute.
