Teacher Card

Hi there,  crafty friends. I’m back today with a teacher card… If you follow my blog at all, you know that I’m a big fan of teachers. They deserve to be spoiled and I created a card to do just that. My son’s kindergarten teacher is amazing and I want to remind her of that. I think a card is a great way to show appreciation. I started by stamping all of the sentiments...

Single Image Note Card Set

Hi there, crafty friends. So my son just started kindergarten and his teacher’s name is Ms. Smiley. How cute is that!? I thought I would make a note card set to give to her on the first day of school. I decided to share it here to show you can make a whole set with one single image… I stamped the smiley face from THIS stamp set multiple times. To color in the image,...

Ice Cream Gift Card Holders

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday! I’d thought I’d share what I’m gave to the staff at my son’s school for the end of the year gifts… I planned something different for his main teachers, but I still wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful staff at his school. (secretary, nurse, traffic helpers, past teachers, OT, speech, etc.) I was looking for something inexpensive because I had so many to purchase. I thought...

Last Minute Teacher Gift Idea

Hello, crafty friends. As the school year is coming to an end, I thought I’d share a last minute teacher gift idea that I did for my son’s teachers… I like to add handmade touches to my gifts, especially when I’m giving a gift card.

Easter Treats

I started by stamping THIS background stamp on to a plastic sandwich bag using THIS ink… I trimmed off the top portion of the bag. I die-cut THIS die from some patterned paper and stamped, colored, and cut out images from THIS adorable stamp set. I white heat embossed a sentiment...

Concord & 9th March Guest Designer-Week 3

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday. Today’s cards features new products from Concord & 9th… I have to say that THIS stamp set was my favorite from the release. I think it’s because it reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in the 80’s and I remember having rainbow wallpaper in my bedroom.  It also reminds me of the rainbow care bear I dressed up as for Halloween when I was five. Every time...

St. Patrick’s Day Gift Basket

Hi, crafty friends. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I thought I’d share what I created for the teachers at my son’s school. I use any Holiday as an excuse to spoil them. 🙂 I shared a similar idea HERE last year and they were a hit. This year, I added a few different things to the basket as well as the tags… I’m currently obsessed with THIS stitching tag from My Favorite Things. I like...

Mini Pizza Box Valentines

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today to share how I created these mini pizza box valentines… I’m always looking for unique ways to present a little gift. To create these 4×4 mini pizza boxes, I started with a 12×12 piece of paper and cut it down to 8.25 x 11.5. Then I made lots of score lines. I put my paper in my scoring tool horizontally and scored at 1 inch, 5.25 inches, 6.25...
