X is for XO-llent

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! We are coming near the end of this series; however, I will have more ABC fun to come! Stampin’ Up!’s Tags, Tags, Tags, set is XO-llent for several holidays (Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day) as well as any time you want to send a bit of love! I shared some projects I made with this bundle previously. You can check them out HERE.  Today’s project is for my daughter.

Stampin' Up! Hershey Kiss gift card holder idea using Tags Tags Tags Bundle and Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My daughter’s birthday was last week and it was one she’ll never forget! She’s a senior at Georgia Tech so we were not together to celebrate this year. She had scheduled to take her GRE exam on the morning of her birthday. (Crazy right?!) After the exam she was traveling by Uber back to her dorm when a car ran a stop sign, hit the van she was in (which flipped over), and caused it to hit another car.  I was on the road driving to Massachusetts when I got the dreaded phone call that she had been in an accident and was on her way to the hospital by ambulance. I am so very thankful that aside from being badly bruised, very sore, and a few cuts, she is fine. Thank goodness she was wearing her seatbelt! Her guardian angel was watching over her!!! (Thank you Sister Corda!!!) Here’s a picture of the van she was in.

Yesterday she got the results from the graduate exams she took that morning and she knocked it out of the park! I thought she would appreciate some “Hugs & Kisses” along with a gift certificate to celebrate!

  • Fold and burnish along the score lines except the second one from the top. *That score line was just to mark where to cut the sides.

I purchased the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin for my mom’s birthday last month.  She loves to give my handmade cards so I stamped some different sentiments and decorated the cards with flowers I fussy cut from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Then I put them back in the tin and wrapped it with ribbon and tied a bow.  The pink & gold tin is so gorgeous by itself there’s no need for wrapping paper! Here’s a photo of her birthday card and some of the cards I made for her. (*You get 12 cards and 12 scalloped envelopes included with the tin.) Some of the stamp sets I used (as well as the Large Number Dies) are retired; however, many different sentiments will work.  Use what you have!
