Another School Year Comes to an End...

It's been a great year for our kids! They were Blessed with AMAZING teachers and have grown so much intellectually and socially =) For this we are truly grateful! I really believe teachers make a huge difference in a child's life and are so underpaid! boo!

For these gems in our children's lives, i made these little gifts of appreciation.
Tutorials for these projects can be found here (gift bag) and here (gift card holder).

Thank you Claud and Kim Burmeister for the inspiration!


Let the adventures... BEGIN!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Finally, a week to celebrate all those teachers who've made a difference in our lives!

For Nina's violin Teacher, i made a set of cards to thank her for sharing her love of music. In a years time, Nina has progressed very well and we are all very proud of her :)

The front card was totally cased from the SU! Mini catalog. What a cute and simple little stamp set, but oh so versatile!

Thanks for stopping by!

C is for COOKIE!

Using my scraps of DP, we came up with this colorful birthday card =) I'm not too happy with the outcome, it wasn't cut as sharply as i would've wanted it, but i hope the recipient won't mind :)
I used the Sesame Street Friends cartridge. Thanks for stopping by :)

Cricut kick!

It's official. I'm addicted to the Create a critter cartridge. (try saying that 3x fast!)
DD and I have been creating these little critters and enjoying every minute of it!! She likes to name each one too. I also ordered a matching stamp set from mypinkstamper found here. TOO CUTE!
Oh what a rainy day can do for craft time =) i heart WA!

Happiness is...

Mr. UPS ringing my doorbell with a Stamping Up package waiting for me!!
It makes my day every time! Woot-woot!
I finally got some markers from the Clearance Section! I've been wanting to get these sets but opted for copics instead... so when i saw them for only $12 a pop, i couldn't resist!
And since i have all the now retired colors of the Bold Brights, i had to get the refills :)
LOVE that Clearance rack!!

Whew! It's been AGES since I've dusted off the ol Cricut!
I needed to make thank you notes for my son's birthday gifts and I've been wanting to try out the Create a Critter cartridge i got a few months back.
I L-O-V-E IT!!!
The little critters are too cute for words!
i haven't been excited about a cricut cartridge in a while, so now i'm hooked again! woohoo!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one!
