Post-It Note Holders for Teachers (Valentine 2013)

Hi there! I'm sharing a couple of post-it note holders I made for my grandson to give his two teachers for Valentine's Day this year. At Target's dollar bins, I found some cute post-it notes that say "I ♥ 2 Teach". I made the front cover of the holders to match the post-it notes by using black polka dot cardstock and red and white cardstock for the postage stamp design. I like how they match.

I'm still working on the treat bags for his classmates and I will post them when they are finished.

Teddy Bear Parade Football Player Birthday Card

Hey there! In honor of the Redskin playoff game today and my nephew's birthday, I am sharing this card with you all. My nephew is a big Redskins fan (me too !!) so I chose the football bear from Teddy Bear Parade. I really like how it turned out. I had a lot of fun making it too. I used a new product I bought. It's the Epiphany Shape Studio and Bubble Caps. I love this thing! I used it to make the bubble cap on the inside of the card.

All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth Layout

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you all had a great holiday. I made a scrapbook page today of my grandson who is missing his two front teeth. It's so cute hearing him talk without his teeth. I took a picture of him smiling big so that I could make a layout of him. I saw the challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas (Challenge 96: A Sketch for 2013) and used that sketch to make the scrapbook page. I'm not too good at layouts so starting with that sketch helped me design it.
