personalized teacher gifts

Hello!  Hope everyone had a happy Easter!  With our 3 kids we receive tons of Easter candy.  I don't know quite what to do with it all because we definitely can't eat everything.  I still need to sort through all the goodies.

I've started on teacher gifts for the end of the school year.

Here are 3 keychains I made for some Japanese language teachers.  I stamped each teachers name and an apple onto an aluminum circle.  These aluminum circles are on the thin side so it's pretty light weight.  I attached a split ring through it and onto the heart shaped keychain.  I love the heart shaped ring!  So cute!  I think next time I will look into a thicker aluminum.  But I think I am getting the hang of metal stamping, and I think I stamped the names pretty evenly and not too lopsided. 

Oh, did you notice my clothes pins?  I made something to hang my jewelry and chains on to make photographing them easier.  Just took an old piece of wood and painted it white.  Then I added 4 small clothespins.  So much easier to display also.

Here is a close up of one of them. 

This is a piece I stamped a couple months ago.  Funny saying? 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow Eva! These are fantastic! You are a super crafter as well as super mom. I love the gifts for the teachers. They will keep them forever! I love, love the saying on the other key chain....all moms will recognize the simple truth of that sentiment.

What fabulous keepsakes for the teacher's...they sure are going to appreciate these when they get them! Love the "super power" tag too...the saying sums it all up! Your clothespin holder is very clever and creative...you definately had your thinking cap on for this!

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
