Gifts for teachers

Hello!

I hope all is well with everyone.  It's the end of yet another
school year.  I just can't believe how fast time goes by.

Every year I make orange bags for the teachers.  They are just so
much fun to put together.  I made two of them this year.
"Orange you glad it's summer?"


I picked up an orange gift bag.  Then added a towel,  drinking cup,  soda, 
nail polish, gum, gold fish and an orange sewing kit.  I then made them a set 
of note cards and placed them inside a small fry box.
The fry box is a die from Stampin Up.

 Here is the free file I found for the tag on Pinterest.  I upload it, printed and
cut it out by hand.

I also found something else on Pinterst.  Can you tell I just love Pinterest!
I found the mitt and spatula at the dollar store and then I bought
the cookie dough at the supermarket.  Wrapped a ribbon around the
tag, and there you go.  A great gift for your teacher.


And here is the free download I found and printed.
 
I hope you find these ideas fun to give your favorite teachers,
or anyone else in your life.

Have a wonder day
Yvette

Journal books

Hello my wonderful friends,

How is everyone doing?  Looks like Spring is finally
here.  And with beautiful weather comes beautiful weddings.
It's true when they say things come in 3's.  I know 3 couples 
that got engaged.  And so I made a journal for each of them.
I used the same paper stack "House of Roses"  
For a close look at the first 2 books, check out my 
You Tube video  Journal books .
And here they are:
This one is for a co worker on mine.  She's very sweet and
has a good heart.  I'm very happy for her and so I want to wish 
her the best.  Congrats Lucy and Jose!!!   


This one is for one of our own.  Olga!! She's Madstamper64 on YT.  She's a
 great crafter and a sweet heart as well.  She just announced her engagement.  
Congrats Olga and Ernesto!!
I wish you guys the best!

And last but not least.  This one is for my future sister in law.  
She's a sweetie pie.  I'm very happy for my brother. 
Congrats Danny and Catalina.  Love you guys! 
Here is the video for this Journal.

My best wishes to all of you.

Sock Cupcake

Hello again.  Are you looking for a fun and cool gift.
 Here are a couple of Sock Cupcakes I made for my
grand daughters teachers for Valentine's Day.

 I cut a strip of pattern paper about 2 inches high.  
I then grabbed a pair of Valentine sock and rolled it up.  
Then I took the pattern paper and wrapped it around the roll up 
sock to make it look like a cupcake.   I then tied a ribbon
 and topped it with a heart as a final touch.  I was able to find the 
sentiment on Pinterest and just downloaded it and copied it.
I love the final results and the teachers loved them.




 I made the next two you see below for my grand daughters.
For them I used stocking instead.  They love fun stockings and
lucky me I was able to find some fun ones on Amazon.  I
also got them some M&M's with their picture of them.


I hope you get to try these as well.  It's something fun and cute
that anyone would love.  And best part is you can make them
any time of the year.  Maybe even a birthday.

Thanks for coming by.
Have a wonderful day.
Yvette

Halloween treat boxes

Hello my friends,

October is here!!! And Halloween is around the corner.
My favorite part is watching all the kids with their cute costumes.
Some are very creative.  My grand daughter's are going to be
a leopard and a cheetah.  They are so excited.

Today I want to share with you some Halloween treat boxes I created.
These are also my DT project this month with FlairByMe.
All the laces I used as well as the buttons are from her shop.
They were so much fun to create.  For the legs I used the cricut
cartridge "Happy Haunting."






I will be adding some goodies and giving 3 of them to my grand
daughter's teachers and the other 2 are for my daughters.
Here is my You Tube video for details on how I made them.

I hope you are all having a great day.
Thanks for stopping by.

Card, junk journal and box

Hello my friends.

How is everyone doing today?  Looks like Fall weather is almost
here.  I love the Fall colors but not what follows.... Shhh Winter!  
I don't like Winter but I guess it's comforting to know that Spring 
will follow.  And that's good.  :-) 

So today I want to share 3 things I made for my design team project


I used a lot of beautiful items from Mel's shop on this card.  I then sent it
to my mother in law for her birthday, along with the following junk journal I
made for her also using items from the shop.


Here is my You Tube video on this card and book if you 
want to check them out more closely.
I also altered the following box.


Now this little box was fun.  I believe I picked it up once at
the dollar store.  It's very simple yet cute.  Here is the
You Tube video on this altered box.

And that is it for today.  I hope you are all having a wonderful day.


Hugs,
Yvette

Orange you glad…

Hello everyone,

This past June when the school year ended I gave the
teachers orange bags.  Eveything inside the bag was orange.
I added a tag that said "Orange you glad it's summer?"
The teachers loved it.  These teachers worked during the summer 
as well half a day, but they still love it.

This is the 2nd year I've done this and it's been a hit both time.




I hope you try it out.  Between the sentiment and the contents, I promise 
you that it will be fun to give as well as receive.
Here is my You Tube video if you would like to see it closer.

Take care everyone.
hugs,
Yvette
