Happy New Year to you all! Hope you had a wonderful New Year's Eve. We had a nice evening. After all the December craziness in our household we spent New Year's Eve with just the four of us watching TV. The girls stayed up till 0.30am. Previous years they went to bed and we woke them up around 11.45pm so they could watch the fireworks at midnight. This year they wanted to be part of the fun, watch TV, have an oliebol and stay up till midnight.
Today is the official start of my 6-month ShortCuts DT term and I would like to kick-off with my first project......a Gift Card Holder Folder (GCHF). The GCHFs are pre-scored and die cut for easy assembly. The GCHFs are great for giving someone a gift card or money, and so much fun to work with.
Supplies: SheetLoad ShortCuts Gift Card Holder Folder Kraft Patterned paper, button: My Mind's Eye Quite Smitten & Irresistible Rub-ons: Melissa Frances Flower: Prima Marketing Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, Sizzix Primitive Hearts die, Sizzix Circles die Ink: VersaColor Pinecone #171 Other: chipboard, twine, Heidi Swapp crystals
So...how about trying out the ShortCuts products yourself? I'll be giving away a ShortCuts Ultimate Sampler this month. The package will include the following:

In order to have your name put into the draw to win the ShortCuts Ultimate Sampler you will need to create a project based on January's theme LOVE. Come back here and link me up directly to your project! The deadline is January 31st, 2009. I will randomly pick a winner on February 1st.
Off to pack my suitcase. I'll be leaving for France tomorrow at 9.15am.
