You Better Study Girl!

Friday, February 22, 2013

Here's a fun new project that I made for each of my daughters!

For certain tests, I have taught them to use flashcards to help them remember the key terms they need to pass. I dressed up a wooden box to help with this goal. It looks so pretty on a desk too!

Both girls love to write, so I added a typewriter embellie to the front.

I love mini pencils!
They are fun to add to any gift set.

I got the colored index cards and the binder clip from Target! 

The paper, tag, ribbon, and chipboard pieces are from the Dear Lizzy - 5th and Frolic collection. It's one of my faves!

I hope this helps my girls make an "A" on their next test!
At least it's pretty to look at. {LOL}

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Dress It Up for Spring!

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Whew!!! The past five days are all a blur to me. My daughter just went back to San Diego yesterday and I'm just now getting back to blog land. We had so much fun hanging out with family and friends!!!

Here are some springtime gift bags that I made for Rebekah to give to her college buddies. I used a couple of goodies from The Cutting Cafe for this project.

I turned the Postage Stamp Shaped Card into a flat note card and adhered it to the front of a kraft bag.

I also printed out a goodie from the One Spring Day Set and added it to the tag on the bag. All of the goodies all mixed together are so perfect for spring.

Be sure to hop on over to The Cutting Cafe and dress up your own gift bag!

Pez Candy Crafts

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I love Pez Candy and Hello Kitty!
So does my my oldest daughter Rebekah! She is flying in from San Diego today. She attends college out there. We have missed her so much!!!
I made a fun Valentine's Day treat for her using The Cutting Cafe's Valentine's Day Air Mail Printable Set. I printed the tags onto kraft cardstock. This set features two different tag designs. You can print them in color or black & white.

Here's Hello Kitty all dressed up with one of the Valentine Tags Printables. This set features 8 tags and works with Stampin' Up's large tag punch.

I got the bird cage and Hello Kitty Pez set from Michael's Arts & Crafts store. I think I'm going to add some chocolate to this gift set too!

 I hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day!

A 90's Inspired Thank You

Monday, February 11, 2013

Songs from 1990's are on my mind today!

I had so much fun watching the Grammy Awards last night. Hearing all of that great music made me think of all of my fave songs.

A song that I really love is one from 1998 by Dido. Remember her????? It's called "Thank You" . If you want to hear the song be sure to click "here" to view it on Youtube. It's a really beautiful and relaxing ballad that was popular way back then. Here are some of the lyrics...

And I want to thank you for giving me
The best day of my life
Ohh, just to be with you is having
The best day of my life

And since we are on the subject of songs...I'm entering this one over into the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge. I'm really having a whole lotta fun making CAS cards.

I used a birdie from 7 Gypsies and an SRM "Quick Card Thanks" sticker. I left a lot of white space on this one to really make the CAS design stand out more.

Now tell me...What is your fave song? And did you watch the Grammy's last night? I really loved Justin Timberlake's performance. I'm so glad to see him back in action!!!

It Took Me Less Than Five...

Friday, February 8, 2013

Happy Friday everyone!

I'm just driving by with a quick project that took me less than five minutes to make.

I made this "baby cupcake topper" and took it to the hospital on the day that "little miracle Tristan" was born.

He can't eat this just yet, so we all had fun munching on it for him.

I used the adorable SRM Stickers called: We've Got Your Invites - Baby Boy and We've Got Your Border. They were so perfect for this "yummy for your tummy" treat.

OK gotta go! I'm craving sweets now!

Here's my motto for the weekend...

Seed Packets With a Twist

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

I just love The Cutting Cafe's Seed Packet Holders.  You can make them in many different ways too!!!
There are various seed packets templates/files in the set. You can make the plain one (like I did), one with a flower window, or one with a square window.

I call mine - "Seed Packets with a Twist" because I did not add the window. Instead I dressed the front of them up with paper and embellies.
This set also comes with 33 different sentiments as well. I printed the sentiments out on my handy dandy printer and adhered them to each packet. Here's a close up view of one of them.  
The photo below was taken in my classroom. I added a seed packet to my artificial plant. It really brightens it up and looks great by the window.
We are already enjoying springtime temperatures here in Texas. I am sooo loving the sunny weather! Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe to see all of the fun products that are sure to get you in the mood for Spring!!!!

A Clean & Simple Hello!

Monday, February 4, 2013

Hello Monday!
Wasn't that an awesome Super Bowl last night? My fave part of the night was Beyonce's performance. That girl can work it! We were singing and dancing along with her. Fun times!!!
I have a fun card for ya today! I haven't made a CAS card in a while and got crafty this weekend and put one together. I'm playing along in Casual Friday's - Love Letters challenge.

The paper, tag, and button are from the American Crafts - 5th & Frolic collection. I also used two different butterfly punches as well. My fave part of my card is the fun lettering on the tag.
I must make more CAS cards soon. This was a lot of fun to create!
Paper, tag, button - A.C. 5th & Frolic
Kraft & white cardstock - Bazzill
Punches - Stampin' Up and Martha Stewart
