Stamp Simply #113 - Don't Play with Matches


Sharon says "don't be playing with matches!" for today's Stamp Simply challenge! :) Well, no she didn't really say that... I'm just being silly! But we are making cards with a matchbook fold today! I haven't made one of these in eons, so this was a lot of fun! I think my design looks like it's missing something though, but I left it alone in the spirit of stamping simply!
And actually, for my design I used a tutorial I found on Splitcoaststampers that includes a pocket inside that perfectly holds a Ghiradelli chocolate! Hello, yumminess! This was so super-easy to make I think I'll work on some more in a Christmas-theme just to have on hand for the upcoming holidays! Check out the tutorial here for all the measurements and directions!


Sharon has an as-always fabulous sample for you to see on her blog, along with all the challenge details! And my Stamp Simply Sisters have wonderful inspiration for you to see, too!


I'm in the process this weekend of moving my stamp room! Anyone who feels like cleaning, hauling and organizing... come on over! :) I'll be purging a lot too, so keep an eye out for some things for sale and other things I might just give away!

Happy weekend!
