Memo Board Teacher Gift!

Well, we're almost to the end of June - and that means teacher gifts! Karla here today, and while we usually give gift cards to the teachers, but I think it's nice to include a little something useful as well.  I saw this cute DIY tutorial on YouTube and thought it would be quick, cute, and within our budget. Erica had 3 teachers this year in preschool, and Amie wanted one for her teacher too!

We started by picking up four pretty 4x6 photo frames at the dollar store, along with a package of wipe off markers. We then chose 4x6 Project Life Cards - I liked these lined ones so you could easily write your message, 

We added a stamp to the top line with black ink, inserted it into the frame and tied some baker's twine through the little hole on the top of the marker to attach it to the frame.

Lastly, we wrote a little note on the memo board before wrapping it up.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're enjoying the last week of June and have some fun summer plans to look forward to!

Fun Friday Fast Tutorial with Pam

I am involved in a group that swaps paper, we are the 'Paper Traders'. This is  a sample Rolodex card I made for my swap partner. The theme is June / Weddings / Start of summer. I needed something to add a bit of bling.

From out of the scrap box I pulled this border I had cut as a sample and never used. It was white, so perfect. Now for the bling.
1.} Lay your cut border out on a craft mat
2.} Take the lid off your Goosebumps and spread a thick layer over everything.       Fill in the gaps as well. This might take several passes.
3.}  While it is still wet, sprinkle generously with a glitter of your choice of glitter. Check occasionally while it is drying to make sure the edges of your border stay flat  on the mat.
4.} Allow it  to dry thoroughly.  I was worried it would take an overnight dry. But amazingly the 'goosebumps' dried very quickly.{I did use a heat gun on low to make sure it was dry}

I carefully peeled it off the mat, trimmed the edges up and glued it to my Rolodex creation.

Pocket Letter using Scrappy Supplies!

Hi crafty friends!! Karla here today. We are starting to have some lovely weather here in Calgary, Alberta, and since you never know when that will change we've been trying to enjoy as much as we can of it. When I do get a minute to be crafty, one of the things I do love to do is create something out of my scrapbook supplies even if I'm not scrapbooking!

Today, I'm sharing an eye spy pocket letter with you that I made for a swap in one of the Facebook groups I'm in. For the background papers for my pocket cards I used the 6x6 BoBunny paper pads from the Believe and Butterfly Kisses collections. I just love the papers in both of these collections! The Believe papers especially have a mixed media layered look to them that is so pretty.

I included at least one of each eye spy item on my page:
- Owl, Heart, Key, Cupcake, Mason Jar, Butterfly, Clock, Crown and Coffee Cup

I pulled out lots of stamps, including stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps, Tim Holtz, Imaginesce and Graphic 45 and whatever else I felt would work with this pretty letter.

I added some Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers and used some Stickles and Glossy Accents along with a doily that I cut up and some washi tape for closing up the pockets with beads and sequins on the back.

On the back, I added some goodies for my partner and a note from me.

I love that these pocket letters can fold into thirds and fit into an A10 envelope! I decorated my envelope with some Tim Holtz stencils and coordinating stamps and some Distress Inks.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I'd love to hear what you've made lately with your papercrafting supplies!
