I just wanted to share my teacher gifts with you. We also did this project at my Stampers' Ten Club meetings this month. This is such a thoughtful, creative yet inexpensive gift for friends, teachers, family and more. I gave each of Nicolas's lovely preschool teachers one of these for their end of the school year gifts! It is an easy template to follow starting with a base sheet of 9 3/4" X 6" paper which is your card holder. You score that piece lengthwise at 4 3/4" and again at 5" and then turn the paper 90 degrees and score at 2 1/2". Fold along your score lines and you'll see the card holder take shape. Decorate some cards for the inside and then decorate the outside and you have a lovely (and useful!) gift! The cards for the inside are 4" X 2 3/4" folded. I used the new scalloped oval punch that matches beautifully with the Oval All stamp set. Try it out! Just let me know if you need some help putting this project together!

I just love this kit. I've been eying it since the new catalog came out. The colorful patterned paper alone in this kit gives you many possibilities. Again, I used some chocolate chip felt flowers for my lilly pad and a chipboard letter to create 2 simple but really cute layouts. I used my crop-a-dile for the eyelets on the blocks page and it was SUPER easy to set them!! Hoppy Memories is already sold out if you can believe that. These kits go fast - another reason to join my scrappin club so that you get these before they are GONE! We are starting a new club with the new catalog in July! Join us and keep your scrapbooks going throughout the year!
Sorry for my lack in posts lately! I have been creating though, just not uploading! Here are the layouts for April's Simply Scrappin' kit. We worked with the Sunshine Garden set which is just so cute! The Doodle This stamp set compliments this Scrappin' kit nicely so you'd better hurry and get it before it retires July 1st!! Our felt flowers and colorful brads added nice touches to this already colorful kit. I made some faux grass by simply chopping up a green cardstock border with my scissors and then ruffling the edges with my finger tips. Top it off with a chipboard sun and you've got a nice clean page to add pictures to! I have one layout with pictures and one without so you can see the possibilities both ways! Enjoy!
