Father's Day and Boho Chic!

Having more fun with the boho chic embossing folder.
Quick and fun Father's Day themed cards. 

Did you know:
When I make one card I make TWO. 
Yup, most often I have to cut the card stock in half to make the card so I always make two.
A habit that I got into long ago and it still holds true today.

Because of this I always have the cards to gift as well as a stash of cards ready.
I gift (wrapped up in sets), sell or use them on displays for events.

Give it a go!  You would be surprised how many cards you can make in the run of a year when you always make two at a time.  :-)



Happy Stampin'!

June - Teacher Gifts

I know I am a tad late posting on this one but did want to get it done.
June marks the end of school and Jack was excited to give his friend a little something at the end of the year like he did last year.  
He really liked the freezies last year with their cute tags so that is what we did again this year.  Two for every person tied with ribbon and a cute tag!  I grabbed some shots of him putting his gifts together.




Here are the gifts that we put together for his teachers this year.  We went through pinterest ideas together and he picked out the ones that he liked. We created tags and hit the $$ store so that he could pick out all the items to coordinate with his tags.
He helped with all the packaging, cutting and tying.  SO cute.


These reusable glasses have drink crystal packets inside and cute thank you tag on top.


This one he wanted to give to his main Grade 4 teacher. He said; "She always keeps this in the classroom Mom, she will love this!"

     

A few highlighters for everyone with a super cute tag.



Everyone got some sticky notes too.  He said that "they all could use some of those Mom. Sticky Notes rock."  Indeed they do, little man!!


We had one of these for two of his teachers.  He chose the lip balm colour and everything!   These fit the EOS lip balms. COOL!!


We gathered all the bits and bobs together and filled three treat bags, one for each teacher.  He picked out the hand stamped card he wanted to use and was very proud to take in all of his gifts on report card day.
We have one excited little boy on our hands.....SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!!!!
:-)

Enjoy the summer and don't forget to make some time for Stampin'!

Cherry on Top DSP

As I have said in a previous post the Cherry on Top DSP is so fun!
I am enjoying all the different patterns in the stack and can I just take a moment to THANK SU for the 6x6 paper!!  WAHOO!

My only wish was that there was MORE of this pattern in the stack.  lol  
....guess I just need to grab me more paper stacks, or look for someone to swap patterns with.  :-)

Here are a couple of pictures of a card creation from a couple of weeks ago.
Enjoy!

Tissue Holder - video tutorial

Who knew tissues could be so fun?!
In need of a wedding favour, graduation favour, party favour,  or a "Just Because" gift (you know those are my fave!)
Well here is a quick and easy tutorial for you to whip up your very own handmade favour or gift.

When I attended the East Coast Stampin' Event in June I was in need of an idea for a "Table/Pillow Gift" idea for a swap.  Well, I had the tissues on hand (I always have these small packs for my purse) and immediately thought wedding!

I am in LOVE with the new Bohemian DSP and the suite of products that coordinate with it.  My colour pallet for sure.  Butterflies are my thang, so that was a given as well.  

Here are some pictures of the finished products that I came up with for the ECSE Swap.

   
Close up of the dimentionals for the saying and butterflies

Now it's YOUR turn to create some fabulous handmade party favours. :-)
Happy Stampin'!

Burger and Fries??

I had so much fun playing with some of the new product this past week.  The Cherry on Top DSP paperstack and washi tape did not disappoint.
Since I saw them in the catalogues I have fancied the hamburger and fry boxes.  LOVE them for gifting.  The Big Shot makes it so easy to whip one up too.  YAY!

 Burger?  Nah!  Chocolate is sooooooo much better.
  

 Fries?  Nope, more chocolate!!  LOL
