Yesterday I was excited to share pictures from the World Card Making Day event I hosted with Pam Morris, my Stampin’ up! upline this past weekend. If you missed this summary of the day, please check it out here.
Today I want to share the Make-and-Takes we shared with this awesome group of demonstrators. Each participant received a handout with full details on each project, including measurements (so I’m not sharing all of that publicly). I am, though, sharing the projects as inspiration – and to show off our awesome make-and-takes. These are the projects our participants made:
Gift Card Gift Bag
Gift cards are becoming more and more common. In order to help make gift cards a little more special, we created this gift card holder that fits perfectly in a Gold Striped bag. The gorgeous banner that’s clipped to the front just makes it more special. Your friends and family will be BEGGING you to just give them a gift card next year.

Cocoa and Marshmallows Pocket
Each of the participants in our event received the Hug in a Mug stamp set – it’s an adorable stamp set that hasn’t received the level of recognition it deserves. With a half-sheet of cardstock, Julie DiMatteo helped design these cute pouches to hold a pack of cocoa and a test tube filled with dehydrated marshmallows. What a sweet gift!

3″ x 3″ Card Gift Box
There’s nothing sweeter than a little gift box of cards. It’s final – there’s no arguing that. Here’s a sweet box and four cards we made with the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack:
Smitten Mittens Penguins
We were fortunate to have Donna Griffith present at our event. This is the third time Donna has come to World Card Making Day in Atlanta – and she brought lots of great ideas for how to showcase Smitten Mittens. Inspiring!
Squeal alert – I’m thrilled to share just one of the ideas Donna shared – transforming mittens into penguins. If you are in a place where you can’t squeal out loud, then shut down the browser right now:
We were excited to share all of these projects with the participants at our event – and I’m thrilled to share a little bit about them with you.
Thanks for stopping by today!
