Cute Teacher Gifts

Hello again !!

While sitting at an assembly at my sons school, I ran into one of the teacher and saw this cute bookmark... so I decided I was going to "Craft Lift" and make it myself... but improve it. Instead of using stamps I used cricut cuts from Doodlecharm , Locker Talk and CTMH Art Philosophy, a 4" paperclip and some magnetic close pins from Office max. Added a bit of Ribbon... and viola... cute teacher bookmarks and magnetic clips.

P.S.  Josh's teacher LOVED these too..

Teachers Appreciation Gift

Good Morning,

While I was at Cropping Daze Scrapbooking Retreat in Chesaning Michigan having a WONDERFUL weekend with my peeps.. we were listening to the radio and heard that Teachers Appreciation week is coming.. wanting to see when exactly it was, I googled it and found out that Teacher's Appreciation week is May 7th - May 11th, so when I needed a break from doing my layouts and wanted to just create something fun and new, I decided to create a little gift for my sons teacher. I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge and created some pretty flowers with dum dum suckers as the centers. I took the cute little flower pots that I found  at the store and painted the with Chalkboard paint, added the flowers and some floral stuff in the pot. Topping it off with some cute ruler ribbon along the edge. Once at home my son and I used chalk to add a cute little note for her.

When I dropped him off at school this morning, we gave it to her and she LOVED it... hopefully you will too.

Red Hatters Special Name Badges

Hi !

I received a call from a friend of my moms who is a Red Hatter... she wanted to have some special badges made for each of her Chaperetts. I used my CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge and my Gypsy to create their custom badges. I added a special touch with a bit of bling and to make it a true Red Hatter item, I added a fun purple feather. Just got word.. they LOVE them.

Some Pretty Flowers for Mom !!

A big shout out to all the Mom's who read my blog .... With Mother's Day approaching fast I wanted to make something that a Mom could receive and smile every time she looks at it. What do most if not all women like, other than bling, flowers. Using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge I cut out one of the flowers and added some bling..used a pen as the stem and "planted" it in the a cute little metal bucket I found in the dollar section of Target.

Wine Anyone ??

Good Evening,

Well the Easter Bunnies and Chicks have been a very big success. As the Easter Bunnies and Chicks were flying out of my scrapbook room like hotcakes...a good friend and a new proud owner of a Easter Bunnie and Chick called me and told me she was Scrap-Aiding me ... and asked if I could make a wine box that matched the Easter Bunnie. So thats exactly what I did using the same template from My Scrap Chick. Take a look and tell me what you think. I think the this is a whole way to hand out wine bottles.
