Gift card holders - using Season of Joy and Autumn Days

"Aaaargh!!! It's only six weeks and three days until Christmas!!!"

That's what I heard someone say in the supermarket this morning and I had to get my diary out to check! It turns out that she is absolutely right but don't panic - I can help! I shall be pretty much focusing on Christmas from now on so you'll have plenty of inspiration and ideas from me!

Today I'm going to show you my number one gift for this Christmas:

A Stampin' Up voucher!

I don't know about you, but I can't think of anything I'd rather receive on Christmas morning (well not in my family's price range anyhow!) than a no-holds-barred shopping spree with Stampin' Up!

 My vouchers come in whatever price range you choose.

They come in a made-to-order gift wallet which can be personalised to suit the recipient, including a name if you'd like - just let me know what you'd like on it! The wallets are based on a design by the talented Andrea Walford - click here for her tutorial. I made this one with a favourite image of mine from the Autumn Days stamp set and the Jolly Holidays designer paper. The gold elastic thread is threaded through two holes made with my paper piercer and tied in a bow.

The voucher tucks neatly inside. Just imagine this being opened on Christmas day!

Here's another design made with the tree from Season of Joy and the gorgeous Jolly Holly designer paper. I love the 1/8" taffeta ribbon in Old Olive - in fact I love it in every colour! The trees are finished with the super-sparkly rhinestones for a festive touch.

These vouchers are a great gift for anyone creative in your family. To order them, simply send me an email and I'll do the rest.

But let's not forget someone very important - YOU! I would love to make sure you get a Stampin' Up voucher for Christmas or any of the products you would really love. I suggest emailing me your wish list before getting your loved ones to phone me on 01280 820593 or email me at v.hayes2009@gmail.com so that I can help them get exactly what you'd like.

I'll be back with more gift ideas tomorrow.
Hope you can join me!


  1. How clever you are! Love those wallets, I'd be really pleased to get one under my tree come Christmas Day.

  2. Fabulous cards Vicky.... so love your Christmas projects :)

  3. These are beautiful vouchers! I especially love the one where you strung the ribbon between the trees. Do these come pre-made or do you have a template to share?
