Ingrid Aukan said...

The gift I would LOVE to give is money, so that my sister and her family could add to their tiny house and have a bedroom each for their three kids. Not very creative, I know, but too me, that would be the best gift to give.

Kathy Daume' said...

Hey Cammie!!! This is an awesome little set. I love the bold colors you used. Super fun.

I think the favorite gift I ever made anyone is probably an advent calendar I put together a couple years back, using a cookie sheet and tins. I think it came out really well, and the recipient (a crafting friend) really appreciated it.

HCJC said...

Fantastic Prizes! I'd love to own a Cricut Expression so I could make all those cute LITTLE gift bags & boxes I already make on my Cricut even LARGER....HCJC

WOW! what neat prizes - I am not really a creative person - but I did once made a batik wall hanging as a gift many, many years ago (34 years ago!) - it still hangs in the hall way of their house - so I guess that is my favorite gift I made.

Beautiful gift set!!! You can never go wrong with pink and black!!

Molly B said...

I used to quilt a lot (before I became addicted to paper, LOL!) and the look of peopples faces when they open up the gift of a handmade quilt is just awesome! Great card set BTW! -Molly B

Kate Long said...

Absolutely adore your card set. Thanks for the inspiration and the opportunity to win such awesome prizes. My favorite gift I have made is an Anniversary gift for my husband...card, box, and tickets to his favorite band all gussied up and included. It was my first "homemade" gift attempt, and felt so much more personal.

Nikki Schmaltz said...

I am in the process of making a chocolate tree with stamped flowers and whoppers for the soil. I just think it is going to be fun and I said chocolate. Any gift with chocolate is great!

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

Awesome prizes.

Susan said...

I've been making handmade gifts forever - I laugh when I think about gifts I made for my friends parents growing up. They were probably thinking "oh no, here she comes again". They were always very kind which is probably why I'm still at it.

Amanda said...

I think my favorite would be a banner I made for my dad with my childrens' pictures in it. He has it hanging on his desk at his office.

Darsi said...

My favorite gifts that I have made would probably be the cute little dresses I made for my girls when they were little. I love this gift set that you made!!

StampinCathy said...

This card set is so cute and inspiring. I would have to say my favorite gift I made was an Album for my sister. I made her a 6 x 6 travel album to take with her to Italy, so she could write things down and have a place to keep her receipts, napkins, and other goodies. I also made her a generic 12 x 12 album so she could record some of her trip there also. Thanks for this wonderful eye candy and another chance at this fabulous celebration giveaway.

Candace H said...

Favorite gift I've made...all the mini albums but maybe the mini alphabet album I made for my daughter when she was 2 - she "loved" that little altered board book to death, lol!

carabecca said...

My favorite gift I have made was a mini-album for my sister. She loved it! I also love to give sets of Thank You cards with wedding gifts.

Joan said...

My favorite gift that I have ever made was personalized card sets for all the "woman" on my x-mas list this past year. They all loved them.

ScrapMomOf2 said...

I always make my mom Mother's Day gifts. She loves them and appreciates them! This year, I made her a set of boxed cards that she can use. She's going to love it! Your monogram set is GREAT. Have a wonderful weekend!

Andrea said...

I want to make something cute for my little boys to count down our trip to Disney World in October!

DMorgan said...

OOOH. Hot pink and black are such a wonderful combination! Very striking! The first gift that comes to mind is a DVD tin with scrapbooked pictures inside I made for my (then) 14 year old grandson who came to visit me one summer. I took pictures of all we did and made him an album in the DVD (and of course decorated the tin) to remember the visit. That was one of the most bonding experiences for us! He loved it and I was thrilled to be making it!

Lisa said...

A Wall hanging out of buttons for my daughter's teacher. It makes me smile every time I visit her class! :) thanks, Lisa k in tx

Ellie said...

HMMM for me it this Handmade album I made I was proud because I learned how to bind a book and the album is about my DD.The inside is also unique just like her when everyone opens it it has so many surprises to it. I don't think I could make another like that to tell you the truth so I cherish it.. I love to look at it as she was only 4-6 mths in the pictures in it.. She's 2 1/2 now and I love to see how much she's grown already!

JeanFB said...

Such a pretty monogram note set - I need to make those for our teachers! My favorite gift that I've made was a mini album for my aunt who turned 80 this year. It was so much fun going through all the old pictures of her (some very glamorous!) and selecting the papers and embellies to go with them. She was very touched! Thanks for a chance to win!

Pat S. said...

Hi Cammie!
Happy birthday to you!!!

My favorite gift that I made was one of those Totally Totes with a matching set of note cards and envelopes. I was thrilled at how pretty it turned out!

Thanks for a chance to win!

Thespa said...

The gift I enjoyed giving the most was a distressed cigar box with fairy images I made for my cousin. It turned out great and she loved it very much. When I go to her house it is always displayed in her living room so I know she really enjoys it. Thanks for the fun! Love your project. Have a Happy DAy!

Melanie said...

Hey you can't give a prize on your own birthday! expect a birthday call later today!!!!!

I'll have to think about that favorite gift I've made: my brain is fuzzy, just woke up!

Francie Horton said...

i think my favorite was a hippo with bunny ears and candy corn carrot that i made my grandmother for easter a couple weeks ago. sounds corny i know but if you could have seen how it just lit up her face and she carried it around all day... sometimes it's the little things.

Candice said...

I love your projects - especially those beautiful note cards!

I think my favorite gift that i have made would be the alphabet book that I made for my nephew.

Jingle said...

LOL! Every time I make a gift it turns into my new favorite! LOL! I really loved the canvas art that I made for my husband for Christmas. It was a new kind of piece for me, so it was exciting!

Joyce said...

When my DH passed away, I made a scrapbook for each of my sons, including pictures of him and his Dad. My sons and I both, were proud of this project. Thanks for the chance to win.

My favorite gifts are the scrapbooks that I have made for my children. They will have them forever, then their kids. I love it that they'll never have to search for pictures of themselves. And they were all made with love!

Michelle said...

my fav gift ive ever mad thus far is a step box that i made for my mom...last christmas..
in each of the 3 step boxes i placed a different amethyst necklace..(ametyhst was her favorite stone..and her birthstone...she was i awe of that little box..how it opened up..and how the drawers came together to give the oblong box its shape..best of all..she was carrying on..raving about.. and fussing about the fact the i MADE it!
My mom died suddenly and without warning..a total shock..on march 29th..a few weeks ago..
when we cleared out her home the week after she died..... i saw the box on her dresser..in the opened position..with the 3 necklaces cascading out of each drawer...that choked me up...but..it also
made me feel so good to know that she liked the step box enough to place it on her dresser where she enjoyed it everyday..
I took the box home..and will cherish it as the last christmas gift that I made for my mom..

Starla said...

Love your project,Cammie!! In all honesty, my favorite project is usually the one I am making for someone at the time. Loved the baby guest book albums that I have made, love the gift boxes with cards, or the personalized stationery (especially for the teacher who can never find her "initials". I think I like trying to fit the gift to the person who is to recieve it. Just makes the homemade labor worth it!

naturecoastcrafter said...

Those gift cards are something I want to case for sure! Nice colors! I made a "your life story" for my brother for his birthday that turned out to be one of my best memories of him.

Anonymous said...

I have to say, a 20 year wedding anniversary box for my hubby. Fun to go through all the pictures and memories while making it.

Liz said...

I think these are my favorite so far! All matching, cute and simple! I have a few templates that I want to make to do stationary sets, but have to wait until I have more free time to play!

Anonymous said...

Hi Cammie - I love your project - cool colors! My favorite gift I made was a photo album for my dad after my family had been on holiday to Australia with him. I personalized it so that it was totally relevant to everything he did over there, and he was so thrilled with it that he showed it to everyone who came to his home - even repair men who were charging him by the hour!

Fae said...

I made my dad a scrapbook of all of his hunting photos, buddies and stuff. He loves it and shows it to everyone that comes to our cottage. It was quite a challenge though, because I made it several years ago, when Camo paper wasn't so easy to come by. lol.

Christyne (aka Apple Blossom) said...

What a GREAT project! I have that stamp set, so I may just have to make some too!

Pegg S said...

My favorite gift to make was a tin filled with cards for my MIL. She was SOOOO excited by it and looked at each card one by one. It took a long time to make because I'm a slow crafter and she really appreciated it! Now I just have to get on top of refilling her card tin!

Brit Swiderski said...

My favorite gift I ever made was a minialbum for my best friend. Not only did he love it, but I know it's something that he's going to cherish in the years to come. Thanks for the chance to win!

Absolutely adorable! Anyone would be very lucky to receive this. My favorite gift I have made would be a 12x12 blank scrapbook for my MIL. I had 4 pages for each grandchild so she would have somewhere to put all the pictures she receives.

tina said...

My favorite gift I've made is a folding album made for my grandmother with pictures of my kids. :) I look forward to making more gifts with all this inspiration!

hobbydiva said...

Looove it!!! The colors are FABulous!!!! My favorite thing I've made is a little mini book of us at Busch Gardens. It was the first time I ever used my BIA and am totally hooked!!!!!

Chrissy said...

I have just started my passion for paper crafting, so I don't have that many on my mind, but the gift I gave the ladies in my family for Christmas last year. It was a homemade box with monogrammed stationary. It felt so good to see them open it and just love it. However, my Dad's girlfriend spell's her name with a ch and I thought it was with a s, and she didn't even say anything! I found out 2 months later. Can you believe that!LOL

moralia said...

I tend to make mini albums as gifts more often than not.. so they're my fave things to make! But I am going to be making a canvas soon... so I think that'll make a great gift! :)

L.A. said...

A few years ago I made a scrapbook of the town I grew up in for my sisters. They loved it. It was fun going down memory lane as I was making it.

My favorite creations are all my scrapbooks of my son since he was born. They are such a treasure to me. Have a great weekend!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Cammie!!! Awesome set of notecards!

Gearhart Gang said...

I'd love to make a small personalized "baby book" for my parents and my hubby's parents with pictures from the last 2 years... I could do a lot with the cricut expressions!! :) Thanks!

Shanon said...

I love your monogram gift set. I have been thinking of making a monogram set for my cousin who graduates from high school next month.

I think the best gift I have made though is for my husband. I try to make him a mini album before each deployment. After the first set I made him he confessed that he looked at them every day and made him think of home.

Stephanie said...

Your monogram set is wonderful! I have not made a monogram card set, and actually just received some Just Rite Stamps that I am going to give an inking to this weekend and make a gift for my mother!

Thank you for the inspiration!

ashacpatel said...

I'm in the process of making a photo spinner designed by Ali Edwards and I'm thinking about making one for my sweet cousin for her wedding. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

I just LOVE your monogram set. Love the colors!! My favorite gift to make is a BoBunny Word Book. I've made two so far for friends' weddings (one I have yet to give to her!) and they're awesome! THANK YOU!

Lillian Child said...

I have always been intrigued by the JustRite Monogram Stampers ... love the clean lines. I think my favorite gift I ever made was an altered bottle gift pack for my sister ... each bottled contained a memory from our childhood.

The most favorite gift that I have made is cookies, packaged in some fancy box. Everyone loves cookies.

Tracy said...

Love the idea and your cards. My favorite gift I made would probably be the scrapbooks I've made for my parents.

Jan said...

Love the card set - anything monogramed! My favorite gifts to make are baby quilts made for very special babies. Picking just one would be like picking a favorite child!

For Christmas one year I gave each of my 3 sisters a mini album of our family's beginning. It started off with my parents first date and concluded with all of us together as kids. It made all 3 sisters cry.

I love your monogram set -- it is the perfect gift for graduates -- I include stamps and envelopes so they no excuse for not getting those thank yous out -- especially when they're my own kids! But my favorite gift I made was when i made gift bags for my friends 40th birthday -- everyone thought it was hilarious and so fun! You're never too old to have fun!

My favorite gift I have ever made... I made X-mas cards customized for each person with their faces on them. They were a huge hit!

MrsETaylor said...

When I was about 20, I made everyones christmas gifts one year. I love to this day the painted sawblade and the match stick containers I made for my dad and uncle.

Jennifer Moore said...

My favorite gift I've ever made was an altered picture frame for a baby shower. My friend LOVED them since they matched her daughter's nursery, and she proudly displays them in her home even to this day. :)

Tammy said...

My favorite gift that I made was when my niece was born 2 years ago. I made an album for her mom. I dont really get an opportunity to make girly things - so this was a ton of fun for me to do!

Natasha said...

Love these! I love coordinated, monogrammed projects. My favorite gift I made was a little photo fridge magnet I made for a good friend. It was a nice picture of the two of us and I thought it'd be nice to jazz it up a bit with pretty paper and rub-ons.

Bonnie said...

I'm re-doing my daughter's baby book. She will be 30 in Feb. so I hope to give that to her then. Not only will I be able to add more thoughts and memories NOW..but it's a gift she will cherish for a lifetime.http://aboutascountryasonecanget.blogspot.com/

Shellie Hartsock said...

I made a special album for my daughter for her 16th birthday. She loved it.

Phoebe said...

What a beautiful gift set! That would be a great idea for a teacher's gift!! My fave gift that I have made...hmmm... probably a little album that I made for my sister when she was pregnant with her first child and we found out that it was going to be a little girl. The album was based around the question 'will she' and had pages like 'will she have curls like her mama' and 'will she look like her mom when she's in her grandma's arms?' I gave it to her on her first mother's day. She cried. :)

Love the C cards. The gift I am really looking forward to make are bath fizzies for teacher gifts.

Super cute gift set! I love making gifts and couldn't choose a favorite. Next on my "to make" list, you'll find teacher gifts, a quilt, and something to hang in my boy's room. :o)

cheryln said...

I really love the monogram card set you made! The favorite gift that I have made was a birthday bib for my little grandson that just celebrated his first birthday. It was oversized and really like a cape. He just loved it.

thanks for the chance

Love your monogram card set! My
favorite gift was one I made for my
sister's birthday a couple of years
ago. Being the older sister, I got
most of the family's old pictures,
so I photocopied them onto fabric
and incorporated them into a quilt
for her. It was so much fun to do!
Thanks for the opportunity! Diane

Kathy Kelsheimer said...

Cute projects (as always!), Cammie! Thanks for the daily inspiration. This is an amazing drawing. How exciting for the winners.

jackiestamps4fun said...

Your projects are wonderful! Thanks for the chance to win! I recently received some photos of my mom & grandparents from many years ago, and since they are all gone now, I'd love to copy them and make several mini scrapbooks for my siblings.

Margie said...

Happy Birthday!!!

Have a great day!

Debbie Griffin said...

Love the simplicity of the set--these color combinations really make a statement and add to the elegance. I love to make quilts and give them as gifts...I'm just starting to experiment with paper piecing in my card making--that counts as quilting, too, doesn't it! Thanks for a chance to win!

Heidi Van Laar said...

What a gorgeous gift set!

I hand painted a tea set for my mom once that she absolutely loves and still uses every day! I love it because she loves it!

marianne-g said...

Love your little gift set. Great colors. What fantastic prizes.

My favorite handmade gift was a photo collage I made from a beach trip with family. I made a different layout with different pictures for each family group and now I know we all have a similar momento in our homes.

Alyssa said...

I am making card sets with monogrammed envelopes for my mom and mil for mother's day. It's been a lot of fun and something I'm proud of because I am also making the packaging! :o)

Beautiful set, great color combo.

My favorite is the mini albums I made for my MIL, SO CUTE! But I have another one planned and I think it will be my absolute fav, a gingerbread house!
