Lots of Stuff!

My camera ran out of juice and I could not find the charger! Finally found it and was able to take pictures of some of the stuff I have made the last week. I ordered one of the new lines from CTMH. It is really suppose to go with amusement park pictures (Disney is what they showcase on it), but I had to have it! I discovered that is is great for my boys’ photos! I really love the paper and it matches a lot of the “Magical” line from CTMH that was released a few years ago that I have in my stash. I also was able to dig out my bubble punch that I paid way to much money for and did not use nearly as much. Thanks to Malinda, my scrappy pal, I totally lifted her idea from her OSU telephone scrap lift challenge!

This is what I did with the left over from my BG class at the LSS. I now only have one sheet left. Woo-hoo! I really love love love this LO!

I have seven teachers that I wanted to gift something to at the end of the year. Well, I am needing to be more economical so I came up with this memo board. The 4 by 6 clear frame was $1.19 at Target and it stands. I then got a pack of mini dri erase markers that were $.60 a piece. I attached the marker and thank you tag with a piece of ribbon and the whole thing cost me a total of $1.80! I added a button for some depth. I hope it looks thoughtful and not cheap. I also wanted something that is practical and not just a dust collector for each teacher. What do you think?

I really needed to keep my teacher gifts under $20 (I know that sounds impossible, but I did)so I opted to make the gift bags. I am so scared that this is screaming “CHEAP!”. I used my kids paper lunch bags. I placed a Heidi Swapp mask on each bag, sprayed it with some GM in three different shades, added a few pieces of bling that I bought in bulk awhile ago, folded the top over, punched two holes, and tied a bow with ribbon from my stash. I just hope this gift does not scream “TACKY!”

  1. Your teacher gifts and bags came out wonderful. I am sure they will be pleased to get them! Love the layouts too!!!I Love the train diecut and the photos with the balloon hats… those hats rock… I have a picture of Mike wearing a balloon bird on his shoulder and a pirate hat.

  2. That bright paper is just perfect for the boys photos. The bubble punch is cute too.I like the gifts and bags and don't think they look cheap 'arty' instead.
