Hello Teacher

Summer is coming to a close :( 
It's about time to start preparing for back to school. This year I am trying to have a little gift everyday for the first week back for my daughter's grade 6 teacher. She had her last year for english & social, so I am familiar with her & know the supplies she uses up fast. My plan is to make a gift of school supplies of some sort for each day. Here is her first day back gift...


Post it note holder & pen :)


Recipe:
Jaded Blossom - School Day Candies, Hello, Hello, School Rules, Mini Tag Dies,
 Layered Frame & Journal Die
Trendy Twine - Pink Midnight
Sil Store - 3D Easel Sticky Note Holder design #63972

Going to enter this little treat into the Jaded Blossom Challenge :)
Till next time,

CCE Exchange - August 2014

For this month's card exchange our theme is 'Feel Better' 
I could be a sympathy, encouragement, or get well.
I decided on a get well soon theme. 



Since I've been having so much fun with these Hello Kitties, I thought I'd make the little doctor too!

21st Birthday Card

I made a card for my card exchange group in June (you can see it here) & was asked to make a card like it for a 21st birthday :) I am honored when people enjoy my crafts & want to pass one on to a loved one! Hopefully this one stands up! I was told it was for a 21st birthday for an amateur photographer & her favorite color is purple... Here is what I came up with!! 
The lens & flash are glitter paper. I put little bits of bling for the shaking part :)

Hello Kitty

Jaded Blossom & SVG Cutting Files had an awesome 2nd annual Hello Kitty blog hop last weekend. 
Participating in the hop allowed me to receive a BUNCH of FREE files! 
I decided to make a card today!
I used the ornate card base from SVG Cutting Files. I wrapped Trendy Twine around the layer & then used dimensionals to adhere my Hello Kitty. Instead of the circle for the middle of her bow, I used a flower die from the Spring Dies set from Jaded Blossom. I added rhinestones to her glasses & used white & black stitching to give it a little extra. I used a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Kawaii Sentiments on the inside of the card. I did order the new Hello Hello stamp set, but haven't received it yet... I might add a sentiment to the front once the stamps are in my hands ;)
