Gifts for the In-laws Who Have Everything


I am so blessed to have 2 of the best in-laws a girl could ask for. However, when it comes to gift giving, it is always a head-scratcher. They have everything and don't really need, or ask for, anything for Christmas. They do love my homemade gifts, though, and tell me they can never have enough of them. Hearing that makes me feel so good inside. Well, this year was no exception. My hubby said,  "Jule, they would love some of your handmade cards!" Of course, me being me, I couldn't give them just cards, I had to take it a step further!
 

So I went online and found a favorite stationery set tutorial from Split Coast Stampers and used papers from some of my favorite Club Scrap kitsRhapsody and Surf's Up, to create them.



Each gift included postage stamps, pre-printed mailing labels, and coordinating gift tags, along with 8 cards and envelopes.




They enjoy hand-writing and mailing cards with fun little notes all year long, so I know they are just going to love these practical and handmade gifts!

Stamps used:
"hi"--Club Scrap Collections Font UM
"hello hello"--Club Scrap Body & Soul UM
Hibiscus flower--Club Scrap Surf's Up WM

Special thanks to Club Scrap for asking me to be their guest blogger today!

BIG HOLIDAY HUGS,

Julie Heyer
