Here’s a card I made for my gorgeous husband recently.


The greeting is from “Perfect Pennants” which you can view in my online store by clicking on the image

The paper in the background is from the “Sweet Sorbet” Paper pack and I got this absolutely free as it is a sale-a-bration item.   You can choose exclusive products like this for FREE with every $90 purchase. To see more of the products you can receive for free please click on the saleabration brochure on the right hand side >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>sweet sorbet

One of my favourite tools I used on this card was the Scalloped Tag Topper punch from the Occasions Catalogue.  You can purchase this punch in my online store.    The idea is to make fun tags with these but I chose to punch both the top and bottom for my card.  My kids have even used my punch to make bookmarks for themselves.

Another fun tool I used on the card was the White Stampin’ chalk Marker for a fun chalkboard effect.  These are available for only $5.95

Every year my kids like to give their classmate a little something before the end of the school year.  We’ve done Christmas cards in previous years but the sweet treats always seem to be more popular with young folk.    This year we ran out of time to hand stamp their little gifts so instead I used “My Digital Studio”  to save a little time.

I created the following “bag topper” using the simple-to-use program

My Project 34-001- reduced size for blog


I then had them printed off and stapled them to the top of the fabulous Stampin’ Up Cellophane bags.  These bags used to have a ‘seam’ on the back and I used to have to remind the kids to fill the bags so that the seam was on the back! Not anymore! No seams! Gosh even more reasons to love these versatile little bags (Check them out in my store)

This was the end product filled with some Christmas lollies

……and of course we made sure there was enough for everyone in their classes

I also wanted to decorate some of the “Decorative Window Gift Boxes”  and was thrilled to find that the lolly bag toppers I had created were the perfect fit for the clear window on the top of the kraft boxes.

I filled them with chocolates and little candles and tied with a simple bow and they made cute little gifts for the Teachers and Education assistants.

As part of the gifts for my children’s teachers, I decorated some tins of biscuits.  I loved the old style map on the tins.   I thought the biscuit tins would be great for storing pencils or other stationery supplies once the sweet treats were eaten.

I simply covered the existing tag on each tin with my own little tag.  The stamped greeting is from “Chalk Talk” (available through my online store- click on image)  I just love the matching framelits for this set!

The paper bows were so simple to make using my Gift Bow Bigz L Die and my bigshot

It is so refreshing seeing flowers starting to bloom- one of those things I love about Spring.  I wish I was more of a ‘green thumb’ but alas I seem to do better with paper flowers than I do the real thing.  Speaking of paper flowers,  did I show you my cascading card made with the “Secret Garden” Stamp set?

To make life easier there is even a set of “Secret Garden” Framelits so you can cut out the flowers using your Bigshot rather than cut them by hand.

Today I have a gorgeous pop-up card to share with you.  It is one that participants made at one of my cardmaking classes some time ago and I promised to share it on my blog.

Here is the card closed……

The weather has been so lovely and warm here lately! Perfect weather to share a bright, Summery card.  What makes this card even more fun is that it is ‘interactive!’
