More Gift Card Holders!

I've been a bad blogger lately.  It's been so nice being on vacation from work that I'm just enjoying staying home and puttering around the house.  That is something I just don't get the time to do, working full time.  I thought I'd post some more gift card holders.  The first one was inspired by Diane http://dianejaquay.blogspot.com/2009/12/stocking-gift-card-holder.html 
She made some cute stocking gift card holders from the free Timeless Template at Papertrey Ink.  Here is my version.  Thanks Diane for the inspiration.


The next one was made using all Papertrey Ink products.  It uses the Cash and Carry Template (again) and the patterned paper is from last years Papertrey Ink holiday collection. The tag is from the Holiday Tag set.

The last holder today is from Lauren Meader's new company, My Time Made Easy http://www.mytimemadeeasy.com/  She is offering some free downloads of templates as well as Digital Paper.  Well, I was totally against the idea of Digital Paper, now that I have tried it, I'm a total convert.  Love being able to print off the color and size that I need.  I also like being able to print it on cream or white background.  (I also printed the same paper in pink for the stocking above).If I hadn't been able to try it for free, I wouldn't have know what I was missing. 
I hope you all have a fabulous, safe and Happiest of Holidays! Thank you for taking a peek today and I'd love to hear what you think..

The stocking is really cute, Val. Love the glitter/patterned paper combo. The gift card holder is beautiful. And so is the lovely box. I made Lauren's box too, but can't show it yet. Will do another one real soon.

Have a Merry Christmas!!

I love the little snowflake box. I made one of those today too. Reminds me of a deck of cards box.

Okay, that stocking is just too cute for words! My daughter walked by as I was looking at it (she's 2) and she said "Santa Clause!!" haha! I'm putting this in my favorites so I can make some for next year. Happy New Year!
