Bag in a Box! Way to Cute!

These beautiful little "Bag in a Box" Samples were inspired by Paula Goff. A wonderful stamper that I met on SUDSOL (if your a SU Demo you need to JOIN this group is amazing!! check it out the link on my side bar) anyway I saw them on her blog and had to make them. Now, I'm using Retired Designer Series Paper if you go to look for it. I've been doing some weeding out old stuff and came across it, so you will see it on some other projects in the upcoming days.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping in!

Calendar Card File "CLASS"

I have some leftover Tins and was thinking of offering another Calendar Card File class. In the mean time I thought I would share for those of you that missed it. I'll put more information on my Stampin Up! Website HERE.

PostIt Note Holders and Pens

Last week was busy, with the ending of the school year. Not only did I have gifts for all my children's Teachers and other staffers I could not leave out my co-workers at my school that needed a parting gift. These are some of the pictures I took in a hurry. Thought I would share.

These went to Meghan's and Samantha's teachers. I punched a whole in the stand and attached a small ink pen. You know one of those $$ bin finds that you just have to buy...months later you finally uses them.

I lost count on how many of these little 3 x 3 card holders that I made. These went to the Teacher Aids, Cafeteria workers, Secretary's and Custodians. You can click HERE and see my Tutorial on the Note Card Holders.

As always thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Last of the Fresh Cuts!

I have had so much fun making these Note Cards. Diannie Graves posted a cute note card holder yesterday see HERE. I changed the measurements to fit the Fresh Cut Notes. This will be a door prize of a gift. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

June Card Template

I've been very busy with the end of school and LIFE here at home in general. Here's a bit of last week: Meghan my (12 year old) broke her foot at a friends birthday party last Saturday. However, we thought it was just a sprained ankle (according to her) by Monday she could not put any weight on it, took her for an X-ray it was broke. She got a bright PINK cast just like I had last July. She only has 3 to 4 weeks I had 10 weeks total when you get OLD it take longer to heal. Then on Wednesday Robert my (10 yrs old) had an allergic reaction to something during Samantha's (6 yrs old) Kindergarten Graduation and ended up in the emergency room. Now this past week has been a little more exciting than most but nevertheless that's the way it is around here all the time. I forgot to mention that Brandon (3 yrs old) just got his cast off a few weeks ago.

My time management went out the window but, now I'm back on track. With 4 plus children under foot I have to have a schedule for them and ME. So here it what you've been waiting for:


On Friday June 13th this will be our Make-n-Take come and join us for a fun evening.
