An Oldie But a Goodie of a Blog Hop

Please scroll down to see my other two posts for today - Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Fresh Brewed Designs.

Welcome! It's our once a month Design Divas Oldies but Goodies blog hop. The only rule is to create something using items that haven't been used in six months. That is never a problem for me!!!! Now you should have come from Angie's blog. If not, start at the beginning at Cindy's blog.


I made a note card holder, a technique if you will that I haven't done in a loooooong time. I followed this video and it really was quick and easy. Here's a pic of it closed.


Here it is opened, and inside I have four cards with envelopes.




The cards all used a lovely stamp set from PaperTrey Ink that I haven't used in forever called Giga Guide Lines. And do you recognize that old Stampin' Up paper...it's called Ginger Blossom, something else that's been taking up space on my shelf not being used. I'm planning on making a few more of these, using different papers, to give to my youngest son's teachers, speech therapist, and all the teacher's aides in his classroom.


Your next stop along our hop is Shelly's blog. Enjoy the rest of the oldies but goodies.
