Creation Station Tricks of The Trade Blog Hop

I am back this Sunday with the Creation Station Team. WOW!!! Where did last month go??? Before we know it were are going to hustling and bustling to get that last minute Christmas present. It seems as though as soon as summer break is over the year just speeds right past us.

Did you get to by way of Jennifer? She always has something amazing waiting for us! If you didn't you can always click the back button below.

This month we are hopping with "Tricks of the Trade" and although my trick may not be all that fancy, it makes for a really pretty and easy Gift Card Holder! What I have done below is scored the bag at 3" from the bottom. I then put Tear N Tape on either side and fold this up towards the top of the bag to make a cute little pocket that will hold a gift card! Now lets get to my creation!

I really just can't get enough of this Year of Cheer Specialty DSP! The foils are amazing and so versatile. I have made a nice band using two of the papers from this pack and tied a quick bow with coordinating ribbon. My sentiment is from the set Add A Little Glitz and in the Smoky Slate ink. It really was just the right touch. I added a few of the stickers from the Eastern Elegance suite to add a little sparkle! You will notice I added a little Blushing Bride piece of cardstock so that you could see where you could put it.

This idea is so simple and elegant! I used mine for teachers last year!

Thank You so much for stopping by! Next on the hop is the fabulous Julie Beltramo! She is going knock your socks off!
