Happy Birthday Janae!

My oldest daughter's friend just had her 16th Birthday a couple of days ago, so we made a fun Gift Card holder with her favorite colors. Inside we got her a gift card to the movie theater so she can join us next time we go! 

I just love making things like this for people I know and love. Her reaction was so fun, and I think her mom's reaction was even better!  We just need to decide what movie we want to go and see.

Lots of Birthday Goody Bags!

Hello to all of my crafty friends, I will be sharing with you in the next few posts about some fun Birthday Goody Bags that I have made for my Relief Society sisters. In my ward they called me to the position of "The Birthday Girl". This means I am in charge of making sure all of the Women in my ward receive a little something for their Birthday. In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints we all have different jobs to do that we don't get paid for, we give of our time and talents freely to better serve the kingdom of God. 
 I just received this call about a month or so ago and so I got to work right away. It is amazing to me how many Birthdays there are everyday. I thought for the first year in this calling I would make something pretty easy to put together so I could get them their gifts quickly. Here are some of the first batch that I have made:

Here is the list of supplies I used, I get a lot of supplies from Simon Says Stamp
Stamps came from CTMH, Stampin' Up, My Pink Stamper, Fiskars,

Masculine Card for this month's card swap!

Good crafty day to you all, I want to share with you the card I made for my card swap group that met last night. Our theme this month was masculine to help us get ready for Father's day coming up.  

I have to admit I hate making masculine cards, they are so hard for me because I am just a girly girl and like all the glitter and embellishments. And I love pink and bright colors.  

I'm not sure how I feel about this card, the other ladies liked it though. Let me know what you think of it, I would love to hear your feedback. Well onto the card:

Tim Holtz "Life's Possibilities" stamp set
Versamark ink

Embossing folder from Darice
Mounting foam from Scotch 3M
cream and dark brown cardstock

World's Best Teacher!

Hello all, today I am sharing with you this fun home decor piece that I made for my daughter's 4th grade teacher. I love getting to know the teacher's and I ask them about their favorite color, hobbies, when their Birthday is, etc. That helps me in making fun gifts for them throughout the year. 

This teacher's favorite color is hunter green so I chose a dark green to be the base for this project and it worked out so perfect because it made it look like a chalkboard. I really love how it turned out and she absolutely loved it and couldn't wait to hang it up in her classroom. 

Here are the supplies I used:
Locker Talk, Doodlecharms, & Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridges
Some of the paper is from DCWV & Fancy Pants Designs
All the rest of the paper is scraps from my stash
 "Hey Teacher" 3x4 stamp set from Simon Says Stamp
Versamark ink, Tea Dye Distress ink and Memento Rich Cocoa ink
Blending tool from Ranger 
White Embossing Powder from Stampedous
Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Mounting Foam
Tombow tape runner
White gel pen
gray brad
