Teacher Gift

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over on the PPPR blog.  My kids just finished school yesterday - YES I said YESTERDAY...  I wanted to make a quick project for my daughter's teacher.  Here is what I came up with:


This was the fastest teacher gift I have ever made!!  AND it's awesome!!  I used the  Fancy Pillow Box 2 Cutting File.  It perfectly fit 20 beautiful pencils, and it has a fun label that I used to stamp some cute sentiments from CDD's School Zone stamps set.  I think I make this every school year as a First Day of School gift for teachers.  Is there a better way to start the year than with new pencils?


Be sure to visit the PPPR blog every day, there is always inspiration to be found!

Craftin Desert Divas June Release Day 3

Today is Day 3 of the sneak peeks for the June stamp release at Craftin Desert Divas. We have 7 new stamp sets (3 - 4x6 stamps & 4 - 2x3 stamps) and 3 die sets.

Today we are showcasing Under the Sea!  We are doing things a little differently this time.  We are showing the sneaks on our Facebook pages.  HERE is the link to my FB page, where you can find all the sneaks and how to find the freebie!

When I first saw this set, my brain said 3x3 card set!  So, that is the first thing I created:



Aren't they cute?  I decided to try water coloring again.  These were colored with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  I then painted the backgrounds.  I had a lot of fun with this technique!  On to project number 2!

I love these yummy Swedish Fish gummies, so I decided to make a couple of treat bags for my munchkins.


The little fish is from Create a Critter, and I think he's the perfect fish to go with that cute sentiment!  I needed to make a girl fish and a boy fish.  I mounted them on the the same background that I created for the 3x3 cards.  My kids thought they were SO cute!!  

Each day, there will be a new FREE SVG pattern.  You can email craftindesertdivas@gmail.com to request it. You must comment and "like" each facebook fan page in order to get the free file. Join us this Friday and Saturday for our blog hop and more free files!!

Craftin Desert Divas June Release Day 1

Today is Day 1 of the sneak peeks for the June stamp release at Craftin Desert Divas. We have 7 new stamp sets (3 - 4x6 stamps & 4 - 2x3 stamps) and 3 die sets.

Today we are showcasing the 2x3 stamp sets Sweet Wishes, Wanna Hug, Wish Upon a Star, Crabby and the Outdoor Landscape Dies!  We are doing things slightly differently today - we are showcasing the new releases on Facebook.  You can find my Facebook page HERE.

Here is what I created for today.  My project features the Sweet Wishes 2x3 stamp set.  


I decided to break out my Cricut for this one.  I loved the idea of making a cute cherry to go along with this cute sentiment!  The cherry is from the Preserve cartridge.  Her cutie face is from "The Sky is the Limit" stamp set, that was part of last month's release, and the tag is from CDD's Tag Essentials Die.  I just LOVE this die!  I am so glad I added it to my collection!  You can add the Tag Die and the Sky is the Limit stamp set to your collection today!  But you will have to wait till Friday to pick up the adorable Sweet Wishes set...



Each day, there will be a new FREE SVG pattern.  You can email craftindesertdivas@gmail.com to request it. You must comment and "like" each facebook fan page in order to get the free file. Join us this Friday and Saturday for our blog hop and more free files!!

Teacher Thanks

Happy Friday everyone!  I wanted to pop on today to share a quick project with you.  Last week I bought the amazing Tag Essentials Dies.  Yesterday, I opened them up and started playing. They are awesome, and it is SO easy to put together quick projects with them.  I have already made 3 different tags - I can only show you one today, because the other  two are for next week's CDD Stamps June Release.

Here is what I created this morning:



My kids are finishing school next week.  I decided to make some cute little "Thank you" tags to add to their Teacher gifts.  The apple is from Create a Critter.  The paper is all from Recollections.  



The tag is from CDDs Tag Essentials Dies.  The banner and sentiment are both from  Short and Sweet Tags, and I used the free SVGs to cut out the banner base.




Be sure to visit me next week.  I'll have 2 more creations with this fun tag die, and some sneak peeks of CDD June Release.  Have a great weekend!

S'more Fun

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  It's my day to share a project with on the PPPR blog, using Lisa's super cute SVGs.  So, let's get to it!

My children go to a number of camps each summer, and I always make cards for them to receive while they are away.  I found some really cute files in the store, and decided to use this cutie campfire and marshmallows:



Isn't it fun??  I just love the campfire's happy face.  Both files come from the Smores Cutting Files.  You can find it HERE.  I love this file so much that I created a couple of cards with the different cuts, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more camp cards for the kids Using this great PPPR file!


The paper is from Recollections, and the sentiment is from CDDs "Destination Fun" sentiment set.  I know one of the kids will love getting this cute card!

Father's Day.

Happy Monday everyone!  We are mid-way through the Linky Party over at Craftin Desert Divas and it is Team B's Day to inspire you.  Tara challenged us to create a FATHER'S DAY project.  Here is what I created:


I made a little Father's Day album for my husband.  I used pictures from a little photo shoot we did last fall.  This is the cover page.  It uses Capture the Good Times and Happy Celebrations.




Here is the second page.  Aren't my munchkins cute??  Both these pages use sentiments from Happy Thoughts.  I love the sentiments on that stamp set!


Here is the third set of pages:


The sentiment on the page with my daughter is from Say it Big.  I love the grin on her face, and "smile" seemed to be the perfect sentiment for it.

The page with the picture of my son, uses one of my favorite sentiments from Simply Said.



Here is the back side of the album:


And the very back page of the album:


Both of these pages, use sentiments from Sew Raggedy.  Don't ya love the "made for me by you" sentiment?  I think it's perfect for the final page of any album.


I hope you all come play with us!  There is still one week left to link up.  We have 2 amazing sponsors for this Linky Party:


  
1 stamp set of the winners choice


$25 in regular price files

I can't wait to see what you create!!
