Gift card holder using #CD00895

I made this giftcard for a poor college student who is trying to live in his own apartment while going to college, playing soccer and working part time.  I will tuck three or four fast food giftcards in it. 
I cut the card from #CD00895 Apron Invite from  It cut as smooth as butter.  The papers were scraps - red was Dejaview and the patterned is from a company that was a forerunner of the scrapbook industry and I bought a ton of their stuff but I don't think they are in business any longer: K & something Memories.    Added ribbon for the strings and neck and a few brads.  The greeting is a Studio G stamp from Michaels $1 bin.  The sticker is from Michael's also for $1:  Crystal Stickers by Mark Richards.

thank you card with Chris Durnan's file - CD00715

How elegant is this thank you card? It cut like a dream. It's so pretty on it's own, all I did was layer it over a patterned piece of card stock. Instant thank you card. This file is a great value, because it comes with two other card fronts - a congrats and I miss you card front - and an underneath layer with tiny stars! You can find it here - Astrology Double Layer Cards.

I have been working on a huge project for Rebekah and Chris to celebrate Lachlan's first year. I cannot believe that he is almost a year old now. This album started out life as a mini 4" x 4.5" and just kept growing.. a bit like Lachlan! The finished item has a cover of 5" X 10" and I have gone from 1" ring to 2" rings to hold it all together. In this day of iPhones and Facebook  and so on, not many photos are taken with an actual camera and certainly not many are printed out to share. I had to source these pics from phones, Facebook and my little supply I had on my camera. It has been a lot of fun creating this album and I really hope that Chris and Bec love it.

The album is made up of little pockets with tags in and other pockets that just hold pictures. The tags have photos attached or spots for journaling and I have added in extra pockets and journal spots in case they have extra pics I missed or want to add their own thoughts. The whole album was cut on my KNK Maxx, even the covers, which are paper covered cereal boxes. I had to purchase a Crop-a-Dile to punch the holes in the spine, but what a perfect reason to make the buy LOL

As well as my own designs for the album, I used a couple of cutter files from Chris Durnan and Jan Bryson from Visual Designs by Chris and The More Team! . From Chris I used CD00413 - Tab Book and CD00665 - Just a Pocket (can't find this one in the Store yet) and from Jan, JB00212 - Itty Bitty File Tabs and JB00486 - Joy Fold Card .
