Teacher Gifts for Xmas 2010

If these look familiar it's because I made the same little desk caddies for my kids' teachers last year too.  See HERE.  These are made from Lauren Meader's template over at PTI.  See HERE.  And speaking of PTI, I can't wait until their November release!  I think I say that every month.  I can't believe all the cute sets and dies they come out with.  I think I've really gotten my monies worth with this template.

This one is for my son's kindergarten teacher who was also my daughter's kindergarten teacher so we couldn't be happier.  She is a great teacher and hopefully she will be there for our youngest one too.  Stamp is Teacher Anya from TGF and paper is from October Afternoon.  I used PTI's spiral note paper die and their School Time stamp set for the handwriting lines and the bus.  I lightly penciled in the teacher's name and my son traced over it just to make sure her whole name would fit.  You know how kids tend to squeeze the last letters in cause they run out of space.  I decided to blur out the teachers' names in the photos.

This one is for my daughter's GT teacher who is so supportive and loving.  My daughter really enjoys her class.  Paper is from Imaginisce. 

The last one is for my daughter's main teacher.  She is strict but my daughter learns a lot from her about responsibility.  I love this school paper from Crate Paper and really had to force myself to use it.  I have to tell myself to actually use the paper I buy, not just stare at it. 

I am still working on the gifts to place inside these little caddies.  So much to do before Xmas!

Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!

So cute! You're sure making great use of the template. I never thought about that before, but teachers are the perfect recipients, you get a new one every year! Yes, I'm drooling over this month's PTI releases too. Argh, is it already mid-November?! I need to get started on my Xmas lists, and Xmas photo.

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
