My Favorite Things

     This year at the One of a Kind trade show in Madison we found a great little item that is the perfect gift.   DEBIT REGISTERS!  You can buy them HERE at .  Vickie is really nice and she will take the time to answer any of your questions should you need to call about your order.
    First stamp the actual vinyl on the outside with Black Staz On.  The stamp used is Paper Inspirations ~ Soldier Calligraphy, set it aside to dry.  TIP you need to put something into the holder before you stamp it so that the other pocket does not leave a line through your image.  Next time I will just ink the word Soldier and leave the other words off because they are distracting from the picture. 
    The last step is to make an insert to put in your Debit Register.  This will be the cover that is displayed for people to see.  I stamped the image from Stampin Up ~ Courage in Memento ~ London Fog.  Then cut with Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle and mount on Black Cardstock.  There is a small piece of silver cardstock to give the look of a pedestal and even out the image so it is evenly spaced.

Happy New Year!

Here's to a new year full of new beginnings!  We are back from Florida (I LOVE THE BEACH!) and I am sorting shells.  It's almost as fun as gathering them.   This has been the BEST Winter yet in Wisconsin.   I should have some new cards to post soon.  All of the challenges have started up again now that most of the design teams have been chosen.  The creative juices are soooo starting to flow.
More Later! Stay warm :o)
