Back to School Tags

Just thought I would show you the tags that I made to go on the baskets that we made for Pal II ( see story below). Oh, I made a mistake (REALLY! LOL) Pal II is only 4 -6 not 4-8. I am sure they are happy about that!! These tags were all made using the Grade School DCWV.

Back to School "Survival" Bag

The school that I work at is a K-3 school and grades 4-8 are located in another building on our campus. Tuesday our entire staff is going over to their school as a goodwill gesture. I made this bag as one of the things that we will be bringing. I hope you can read the poem as we will be filling the bag with those things. I used Grade School papers and pop ups from DCWV. If you are unable to read this please let me know and I will send it to you.

Suzy's Zoo "Witsy"

My friend Alyce had done a card using this adorable little duck so I had to borrow this stamp and create some cards. I looked online to find the name of the stamp and came up with "witsy".

On the first card you can't tell but the beak and feet have crystal effects on them. The paper is from Paper Pizazz and SU Brocade Blue and Barely Banana and Whisper White I colored her in with Barely Banana marker and Apricot Appeal marker. The scallops were done with SU's new scallop border punch. The Shh...... at the bottom is on the inside that I positioned via the computer and used the word window punch on the outside.
The second card is Barely Banana and Bashful Blue and Whisper White. It's a Shower was done using alphabet stickers from Provo Craft called Alphabitties.

The third card is Bashful Blue and Whisper White and paper from KaiserCraft called "Little Man". Stamp set is SU Mini Mates

3 x 3 cards and box

I found this box in Michael's for $1 and discovered it was just the perfect size for 3 x 3 note cards. So I painted it brown and then used the Berry Bliss DP to cover it. The scalloped circles are Mega & giga punches and SU's scalloped punch. The brad inside is from SU's Build a Brad. I used the label punch with the "Just a note" from Mini Mates. Ribbon is from Michaels. Then I created the note cards to be put inside. Great little project - I must say!

Halloween treat box

I saw a pattern for this box on Lizzie Anne's Designs website. Since I am having a "Halloween" attack - meaning I am in to making Halloween stuff now - I decided to try it - it is really simple to do. The paper is from SU Pumpkin Pie DP and last year's Halloween DP and a spider web paper that I got at Hobby Lobby. The spider is from Cricut and the bats are from my stash of 3D stickers. I used the SU label punch for the handle and the ribbon I got at a local scrapbooking store.

Jenne's Frames

My daughter Jenne, who is an avid stamper (not a fanatic like her mom!) and part time scrapbooker has created these two frames for some friends of hers. The first frame is for a friend and her father who just took a trip up the coast of Calif on a Harley. The second frame is for a friend and her husband who have just moved into a new house in Calif. and love the beach.

Great job Jenne! Well, Jenne is soon moving to AZ from San Diego to be near her mom (yeah, me!) so I will try my best to turn her into a "fanatic" also. Of course, since mom seems to have it all she won't need to BUY anything LOL!
