Cute Penguin Tags

Hello everyone. I just loooooove these adorable penguins from Mama Elephant! I have been waiting to have some time to play with them. I used the stitched tag dies from MFT. Greetings are from Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn. Nothing too fancy here! Colored with copics, some Wink of Stella and an old stand by - torn pattern paper. Hope you like them!




I would like to enter my tags in the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays - Anything but a card

Have a great week,


Farewell Ang!

Another staff member is moving on to a full time position! I have been waiting awhile to use this Paper Trey Ink stamp set. I love the brush strokes mixed with standard text. The flower die is a favourite from MFT and the background die is also from MFT. This is one of my favourite colour combos. Can't get enough of that beautiful pink!


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

ALBC - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

Have a great day,


Farewell Teacher

In the midst of Christmas preparations, our staff sends Best Wishes to one of our colleagues who is moving on to another school. Cassandra is full of spunk and these bright colours just spoke to me when creating her card. I used a SSS stencil and inked the background with distress ink. The dies are from Paper Smooches, Lawn Fawn and Memory Box. The stamps are MFT, SSS, Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn. I had so much fun piecing this together and just love how it turned out. I added the bottom picture after I took my original photos. I decided to add glossy accents over the Wink of Stella pen on the apple -- LOVE the shine and dimension.

A pair of hugs . . .

Hi there. Today I needed a couple of quick cards. I decided to make "hugs" CAS cards. I was so glad I had some leftover pieces from an Online Card Class. I also took the design offered from the class as well. This made making these two cards quick and easy. I love this "HUGS" die from SSS. Of course a dash of Wink of Stella pen adds some glittery delight to both.




Thanks for stopping by,

For the Happy Couple

Congratulations goes out to one of my colleagues! She is getting married this weekend! September is a busy time for any teacher, but to add wedding planning on top of that . . . whew! Anyhoo, I have been wanting to try out this stamp set from Altenew for awhile and decided to make my own background paper with embossing. Love the results!


I will definitely be using these stamps and doing this technique again.

Thanks for checking in. I always appreciate the visits.
