Teacher Appreciation Week {Day 1}


Hi Everybody!
This week I'll be sharing ideas on how to thank our wonderful, amazing teachers!  I hope you'll find an idea that is quick, budget friendly, but meaningful!  The way our schools do it is to bring a small item each day.  I love doing things this way, because it makes it very reasonable (both time and budget wise!) to do.  I have 4 kids, and that's a lot of teachers!  With some of them job sharing, and being in middle school with multiple teachers it adds up quick!!  

Let's take a look at today's project.  Here are the details:


*All Occasion Box Cards Cricut cartridge


*One of the teachers has a black, white, red, and owl theme for her room.  So when I saw this owl card on the All Occasion Box Cards cartridge, I knew it would be perfect!

*The Teacher Appreciation stamp set from Close To My Heart had the perfect sentiment in a gorgeous font!


*I added some detailing on the owl, leaves, and white panels with the Marvy Uchida LePen™ Journaling Pen.  I love the tip on this pen!

*I stamped the Thank You sentiment in 3 different colors for a fun look.


*Isn't this apple heart stamp adorable??!!  To get the 2 colors, I first stamped it in green ink.  Then I stamped it in red on a scrap piece, and cut out the heart apple.  Layered it on top, and done!

I hope you enjoyed my project! Come back tomorrow for another fun way to show teacher appreciation :D

Between the Folds Challenge - Fancy Folds or Flip Flaps

Hi Everybody!
It's time for another fun challenge from Between the Folds!  This week the challenge is:


 
You don't have to use CTMH Flip Flaps to participate, you may choose to use some sort of Fancy Fold and there has to be some CTMH product on your project.



Close To My Heart Supplies:



I chose to do a Fancy Fold.  This is the "Curtain or Drapery" fold:

*I found a bunch of tutorials online on how to create this fun and SUPER easy fold!


*I added a fun embellishment from the Zoe Compliments and a fun star puffy sticker.
*I cut one of the zip strips off a sheet (that little border on the top of the papers) for my border base.
*Adding a strip of shimmer trim really added a fun pop of bling!
 
  
*I just love the font of this fun sentiment!


I hope you enjoyed my project!  I hope you'll link up with us!

CAUTION: Boys At Play! {Miss Kate Cuttables}

Hi Everybody!   
I'm so excited to share another Miss Kate Cuttables project with you!  First I want to make sure you grab the freebie of the day:



Make sure to grab this adorable file for FREE today only!

Now, onto today's project! Here is the file I used.



Being the only boy out of 4 kids, I thought my son needed to have a warning sign for his room!  So this file was perfect!  Here is how it turned out........




*I added some fun doodling around each word block, the stars, and arrows.


 *The stars and arrows are popped up for added dimension!

I hope you enjoyed my project!  I'd love to see some of you try one of these and share it on the Miss Kate Cuttables Facebook page HERE, or on my Facebook page HERE.  TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)

Between the Folds Challenge - Regatta Paper Pack


Hi Everybody!
It's time for another fun challenge from Between the Folds!  This week the challenge is:




Now if you don't have this paper packet, but you still want to play along, you may use the Regatta Color Palette instead. The Regatta Color Palette is CTMH Colors Flaxen, Glacier, Pomegranate, Sapphire and White Daisy.  Let's take a look at my project and details:


Close To My Heart Supplies:


*I started out cutting apart the Picture My Life card sheet that comes in the paper pack (lower right sheet).


*I also grabbed a couple of the zip strips that came from a couple of the other sheets I also cut apart.


*I ended up creating this SUPER fun adorable banner!  Using the Picture My Life cards made this banner come together in a snap!

Here are some close ups:

 
I hope you enjoyed my project!  I hope you'll grab the gorgeous Regatta paper pack, or the beautiful coordinating colors and link up with us!
