911 woes!

Did you know that dialing 112 on a cell phone is the same as dialing 911? I didn't, but I learned last night! Cody was playing with dad's phone and he handed it to me and said someone was there. I said "hello" and the voice on the other end said "Ma'am, this is 911. This is the third call we've received from this number." Ouch! So, after a short scolding from her I placed the phone on top of the fridge. Yikes! I knew Cody was playing with the phone but he was dialing numbers then telling me what they were. I was thinking, cool, he's learning while he's playing and didn't give it much thought. Guess I was learning too. {blush}

Last week Quickutz released their new Holiday Gift Set, Santa's Workshop. This gift set is packed with three different mini-albums, a lowercase font with numbers and about 18 cookie cutter die shapes! It's a really great set! The first run sold out in less than 24 hours but they're back in stock and ready to ship so if you missed it then you better hurry before they're all gone again!

I used Wintergreen from the gift set to make this gift card holder...

For the front I used the Wintergreen coverset and mat along with the Santa's Workshop font that comes with the gift set. I added the label-shaped spine from the Spine Set then I stamped the poinsetta from the Unity Hodge Podge of Happiness set. The poinsetta was stamped twice and layered to get the petals and leaves then misted with Dew Drop Glimmer Mist. Before I moved on to the inside, I used my Scor-Pal and scored the front cover 1/4" from the spine. Then I adhered it closed at the spine inside so it would open like a card.

For the inside, I adhered a Folder Page (sold separately) to the back page and tucked a gift card inside. I used one of my SU! stamps to stamp to:/from: on a piece of cardstock, cut it with one of the rectangles from the gift set then mounted that on a small label from the gift set.

This gift set has soooo much versatility! You can make a mini album for ANY occasion and as you see here, you can also use it to make cards and more.

Thanks for stoppin' by today! I have lots of projects I've completed and haven't shared with you yet so hopefully I can get them all posted! Hope you had a great weekend! See you soon!
