It's that time of year again! Time for teacher gifts!! The end of the year. Our oldest child will be graduating from her elementary school and entering Middle school. Where has time gone? Our 2nd daughter will be heading into 3rd grad, our third son will graduate from Pre-K and thankfully we still have one baby at home. What a year this has been!
I decided to make stationery sets this year for the teachers. These look complicated, but are super easy to make. I found the directions on Jackie's blog. Please, check her out! She has fantastic work on her blog!!!
All supplies used are Stampin' Up. There isn't a lot of paper used for this either. Not as much as you might think anyway.
I made 4 cards, 4 3x3 cards, 4 tags, a post it note holder, a stamp holder and a pen with a pen holder.
Today my daughter went to her friends birthday party. She loves Monkeys. I whipped up this card quickly.
Stamps: Archiver's $1.99 hot spot stamp
Paper: SU Kraft, SU Chocolate Chip, SU Whisper White
Ink: SU Basic Black
Markers: SU Creamy Caramel, Copic
Misc. SU Pretty in Pink Ribbon

Hope is believing in a brighter tomorrow...
I made this card super quick for a dear friend who found out today she has breast cancer. She is so young, she is a Mommy, and a wonderful woman. This SHOULD NOT be happening.
Anyway, here is I card I came up with. I'm not sure if I like the bling stuff I added. Is it too childish? Need honest feedback here.
Supplies Used (all Stampin' Up! products):
Ink: Whisper White, Pretty In Pink, Pixie Pink, Versamark
Paper: Whisper White, Pretty In Pink, Designer Pretty in Pink
Misc: Whisper White Ribbon, Bling, Embossing Powder in Clear
