The Very Best of Recent Pinterest Pins


The projects we made last week included a few modifications to Pinterest pins I recently added to my boards. The first was a simple EXTRA gum craft:

I purchased the gum packages from Costco and the decorative corner punch is by Martha Stewart. The base was created on my computer and the Chicks stamped the "SWEET" (from Michael's Dollar Bin) then added embellishments. It was fun to see all of their creativity as they were all different when completed ^_^

HERE is the Original Pin:

i think your EXTRA cool printable valentie's day tags...just add the gum

Then they made a simple tri-panel card (using Stampin' Up's banner punch) that can be modified to fit any occasion. The card folds up and fits into those standard envelopes sold in drugstores or dollar stores. (The actual box of envelopes is shown below in the last photo for this project):

Inside Sentiment: SU You Are Loved
Outside Sentiment: Michael's from Dollar Stamp Bin

6" by 9 3/4" DSP
Along the 9 3/4" side,
score at 3 1/2" and 7" then use a 
decorative punch on the far right edge

 Here's a birthday card I made using the same idea:

...and a thank you note:

NOTE: You get 80 envelopes in one box!
TIP: Line the envelope with matching paper

For the third project, the Chicks made a simple embossing folder card using the SU Bird Builder Punch:

Outside Sentiment:
Express Yourself (SU)
Inside Sentitments:
You Are Loved (SU) and
Heard from the Heart (SU)

HERE is the original Pinterest pin:

I started out doing the one button CAS challenge but forgot the button LOL! DOH! So here is my Clean and Simple card that doesn't even have a button on it LOL  It's been ages since I uploaded something so hopefully this will be the first of many :-) **EDIT** Just want to add that this card was inspired by a card I recieved last Christmas from SCS's own Lydia :-)

The last project was the Valentine Kitten Treat:

The details were explained HERE in this previous post. Here are some final Card Chicks pics that made me smile:
