Gina K Preview Day 3

Hi everyone! Thanks for all the great sympathetic comments on yesterday's spill. Today has been MUCH better. I noticed that my purse had some sticky stuff all along the side of it today (?)....which got me thinking how old it was and that I am sure my kids would LOVE to buy me a new purse for Christmas....so they did. They just don't know it yet! (I can make lemonade outta anything!)

Tonight, the Gina K Design team is previewing the new set Sweetest Memories (the new one FREE with three). I came up with a SIMPLE design to showcase one of my favorite quotes ever (that just happens to be in this set!)

This is literally a five minute card! Gotta love that. For some reason--I DO love it...all that white space and the color blocking---yum! I paired this set with the boat from Lazy Days of Summer. I stamped the boat image on three pieces of cardstock (two are the new colors that Gina K will be releasing Thursday night--Ocean Mist and Crème de Menthe!) and I added some orange. Simple!

Materials used: Stamps-Sweetest Memories, Lazy Days of Summer (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; cardstock-white, ocean mist, Creme de Menthe (Gina K Designs); dandelion (American Crafts); ribbon striped pumpkin pie (American Crafts); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).


AND......................

The next thing I want to share with you is a new addition to Gina K Designs....Perfect Patterns. A few months ago I posted a gift card (money) purse on my blog and was inundated with emails from people wanting the template. So, the first template being offered through Perfect Patterns is my Purse Gift Card Holder.


Here is a gift card holder I created with the template:

I used some tan leather cardstock, some neutral buttons, some chocolate kiss cardstock and the stamp set-Signed with Love! (for the tag!)

This was easy to create with the template and it will be the perfect way to present gift cards and money to all the ladies/girls on my list.

You can now purchase the pattern HERE!


Materials used: Perfect Pattern-Gift Card Purse Perfect Pattern template (Gina K Designs); stamps-Signed with Love (Gina K Designs); caramel ink (SU!); neutral buttons (Gina K Designs); cardstock-tan leather, chocolate kiss (Gina K Designs);eyelets; Cropadile; paper piercing tool.

Now head on over to Gina's blog to check out more designs with her set-Sweetest Memories:
