Hello and Welcome to the 14th Edition of Flashback Friday!

Let's first start with our Sponsor:

My name is Lisa Hjulberg and I'm the owner of The Craft's Meow. Opening this store is a dream come true for me... I'm following Henry David Thoreau's advice to Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. I've imagined this for a very long time!

We offer an array of stamps, kits and bits and bobs that will make your paper crafting more fun!

I'm also very excited to introduce you to Little Frieda and Friends, a line of stamps that will be carried exclusively by The Craft's Meow

Thank you soooo much Lisa!!!!  The prize for Flashback Friday 14.0 is 

Pretty Fabulous, eh?!

Next up is my Guest Designer, Lawren Fowlkes:

Hello everyone, my name is Lawren Fowlkes. I live in Central Florida, land of Mickey Mouse and it is hot, hot, hot here right now. 
I have been crafting for a long time. My first craft was sewing, my mother taught me at a young age and I have been sewing ever since. I eventually got into scrapbooking and that seemed to take over my hobbies.

I have one daughter who is usually the subject of most of my scrapbooking. I have been scrapbooking about 10 years and card making for about 4 years. In addition to my paper crafts I also, crochet, knit, read fiction books and hoard paper crafting supplies. 
This is why I named my blog AHobby-holic.  

I am so excited to be hosting the next Flashback Friday Challenge.

For this challenge we want to see your first gift card holder.

Here is Lawren's:

Make sure you pop over to her blog, AHobby-holic and leave her some of that fabbie Flashback Friday bloggie love!

Here's my first gift card holder:

It's a gift card wallet...I remember making it for my brother...circa December 2008.

There you have it...such a fun challenge and a fabbie sponsor!

You have until Friday, August 26th @ 11:59 pm PST to link up!

I love gift card holders....I only started making them a little over a year ago and I *forgot* to take a picture of my first one before I gave it away, but I just posted my second I have a tutorial on my blog on how to make it. ;)

Fun stuff! I know I have made these I just need to see if I ever posted to check :>)

Julie E said...

I struck out! I think a gift card holder is usually a last minute creation from me - literally, the final minutes before we have to leave the house to go to a party. Alas, no time for pics!!!

Jen said...

Nathalie said...

I just came across your challenge blog - LOVE it! Unbelievably, I've never made a gift card holder, so I can't enter this one. I'm really looking forward to the next challenge though!
