Quickie Grad Card & a fond farewell to KennyKStamps

I had a request for a last minute graduation card last week, and this was what I made her. I already knew the perfect image for it, “Graduation Girl” by KennyK the young lady in question looks just like her. So I grabbed that… and a few more * whistles innocently. Hey Cmon.. the store is closing … and they are such a deal… and I had a few spare bucks in my paypal…. How could I NOT go shop the closing down sale and grab as many as I could before they are gone?? what am I .. crazy, me an lil man love our KennyK’s ??? LOL

Ok so here it is.. it’s a super simple card Image was print and cut on the Cricut, then colored with Chameleon pens and a detailer.  Mounted on a panel of this cute Preschool type paper with apples and math  on it… and mounted on a simple top fold card.  The inside had a  simple sentiment and  a money pocket added..and I used these fab foiled star and balloon stickers that I have in my stash from Walmart that I got on clearance.  Absolutely love those foiled stickers, so useful.  I added a few more balloons and stars to the edge of the envelope.


Be sure to drop over and check out the fab closing down sale and Facebook party over at KennyK stamps…

Perfect packaging for small gifts and stocking stuffers

What a cute way to wrap small gifts… specially those standby gifts for unexpected visitors, or small tokens of appreciation to  delivery drivers, colleagues etc.

  • candy
  • cookies
  • silk scarf
  • perfume/cologne
  • stocking stuffers
  • Blind bag toys
  • jewelry
  • lipstick
  • tree decoration
  • cash
  • Craft Supplies  .. and so much more

This is a great one sheet cut design… only one seam to glue or tape; really quick to cut and assemble…   tie  off the end, stuff, tie off the other end… and decorate as desired.  I actually added a reinforcement band  to mine, for looks and because it will be holding something a bit bulky.  Of course you can make these in any size you want, you can supersize it by splitting the design and using two glue tabbed sections instead and cutting each one on a larger sheet.

Fab way to wrap up  paint brushes, crafters pens and pencils, ink pads, embossing powders, stamps and other small items.  I like to hide presents on the tree as well as under it, so this is perfect for people like me  who like to keep a few hidden presents in plain sight.  These look to be the perfect size for those seasonal stamps at Michaels which we usually grab for the little guys collection.  Fimo Polymer clays would be fun in something like these too… and I bet this would be fab for making small craft kit gifts for kids too.  So many uses 🙂

This is a CraftsUPrint file by Rae Carr  called “175 Christmas Cracker Box”  I cut it on a 12×12 sheet of Craft Smith from their Silver Foil pad.  This particular cracker measure 10 inches in length and  is about 2 1/4 inch  squared.  The main storage area before it starts to curve  in is approximately 3 and a half inches. But of course, you can modify the cut file dimensions to suite your needs..as I did by unlocking the file dimensions if needed.

rae_crackerboxI added in the green glitter card band and  some matching ribbon ties, a few bells and some die cuts …  very easy file to assemble and decorate… and perfect for those of  you who find wrapping paper and tape to be like attempting brain surgery lol.

Love this file, definitely one I will be using a lot next year…. I am already planning ahead for next years projects.. * sigh  haha.  The fun thing is because of the design it could be used all year round, not just Christmas..it kind of looks like a big wrapped candy.
