My Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Well I got them all done and I am really happy with how this years teacher appreciations gifts turned out. I almost did not get them done... I don't know what I was thinking but I was planning to finish them up tomorrow when all of a sudden it dawned on me that I need them ready for tomorrow!!! lol 

Here is a video that I posted on my YouTube  but I thought that I would also share it here too :)

I also took some close up pictures of them.

This is the card I made, inside it says Teacher!! 

I know that my boys are excited for summer, and it has been a very late night for them (Bobby just came down to tell us something!!it is 10:31!!) so they will all be very tired in the morning for

Working on Some Cards

Hi there, today is the 3rd last day of school of my two older boys, so I have busy at my craft table making some end of the year teacher appreciation gifts.
Usually we get gift cards to Tim Hortons but this year I saw some cute card sets while browsing on Pintrest, so I decided to attempt some gift card sets for them instead!! :)

Here are some parts for the cards, I have created a little assembly line to put together the apple on the scallop circle...

It has been a very hot couple of days so I have enjoyed sitting in the basement cooling off making up all these cards. I am trying to see how long we can go without turning on the AC, and so far it's a little hot but

Over the next couple of days I will post the finished cards :)

I hope your having a great day

Fun With My New Stamps :)

A couple of weeks ago I joined the Stamps of Life Stamp Club. The club is pretty fun because every month on the first they mail you a new stamp set!!! I joined right at the end of May so I received May stamps and I also ordered a butterfly stamp set too. Since then I have also received the June stamps and I have been having so much fun with all three new stamp sets!!! :)

The first card was created using the butterfly2build stamp set:

The next cards were from the lemonade2drink stamp set:

For the lemonade I stamped out the cup on some white card stock and then stamped it a second time on some yellow and then fussy cut them out. I added some glitter on the yellow and then layered on some of the ice cubes that I had cut out.
The patterned paper is from a Classic K paper pack and then added a brown bow.

I created this card two times because I stared off making the green one and then I wondered if limes were sour or if it was just 
I stamped out the lemons with some Memento Tuxedo black ink and then I coloured them in with some  Inktense pencils. I love how bright they turned out; they will be great to send them out to my Nephews!! 

The last card I made was with the phone4you stamp set:

I used my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge for the fancy square and a punch to cut out the little hearts. I am always looking for a place to put glitter so I added some to  the two litter hearts :)  
I stamped the background with the little cord from the phone and then distressed the edges of the card with some Broken China Distress ink.  

I am already looking forward to July's stamps :) :)
