Wowzers!! Read on to see how to be entered to win...



To be entered to win my prize pack you must do 2 things.

1.) Become A FOLLOWER of My Blog.
2.) Leave a comment to this post with a way for me to get a hold of you should you win.


That's it!! I will select the winner on November 30th.

Okie doke... let's get on to my project. All of the designers on the hop were asked to make a handmade gift. I took it a step further. I decided to make an actual Gift List. A size that will fit into your purse. And... it's custom. You can make as many gift list pages as you need.




It's amazing what you can do with a few playing cards. Yep! That's right. The entire gift list was made using playing cards as my base. Something easy and just about every house has a pack. So, you can make one today!!  :)

Its truly very simple. For the list part I just created it in Word and printed it out. The font I used is Harrington at an 8pt size. The pages need to be designed with thin in mind. Do not make them too bulky or it will be too hard to keep handy in your purse and also a little hard to write on. I just punched a hole in the upper left corner on every card and inserted a 1" book ring. Tied a few bows, put some metal charms on, and wola' it is done! For additional use I made a pocket on each card across from the list card. This I will use to place receipts in. Or additional notes... For My Eyes Only!! heehee

I have included a close up of each page for your convenience and reference.
















I hope you enjoyed my project today! It was great to have you here to share this with. Please come and visit me again. I always have new projects to share. If you have a minute why not check out some of my previous projects. I am sure you will find something to inspire you! Most of all I wish you a blessed holiday season! Don't forget to check back on November 30th to see if you won my candy!!

  114. Kristin, your card deck project is so cute! What adhesive did you use? Would you recommend it? This is a really cute gift for my stamping buddies! I love that you added little pockets for receipts -- that is sheer genius, and I love the little charms! XO, Mary (marydelrey56@msn.com) PS, I'm already a subscriber and hope you get a chance to let me know about the adhesive, I'm thinking a scor tape would work on the playing cards with that coating they have....

    ReplyDelete
  116. This project turned out very cute. The pockets are a great idea. The extra journaling spot will be nice to look back on in a few years. I can see making one of these every year and tuck a picture of each person in the pocket, so when you look back at your lists and are shocked by the price changes you can see how they have changed as well.

    ReplyDelete
  117. This is so sweet. We always seem to have a deck of cards floating around with a few missing. Thank you for sharing this lovely idea. :)

  147. What a great idea, and so pretty? Although, for my disaster of a purse it would need a box or bag to keep it in too, lol, or it would get crumpled.

  165. Hi Kristin,

    These are awesome. The Christmas wish list is great.

    Now I know what I will do with the clear plastic cards I picked up this summer.

    They are sold as "waterproof" for fun at the beach; but I think they will be fun to creat something like this with.

    Thank you for the awesome idea!!!!

  170. What a cute project to bad we don't do christmas with pressents in my family...

  171. I love this project. The decorative layers on the back of each card could actually be a pocket in which to keep the receipts in case the gift needs to be exchanged or returned! I'm a new follower-thank you for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  172. I feel a little more than dum-dum. I looked at the pictures and asSumed the backs were just layers. When I read the instructions I found out they WERE pockets. This would be great for a birthday list also, using the new G45 calandar papers. jabob@gci.net

  173. This is brilliant! As if the shopping list booklet wasn't a wonderful enough idea, you used playing cards as the bases!! Each page is as beautiful as the next and I love the charms dangling off of the ring!
    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
