Christmas Teachers Gifts- Cocoa Kits

Today, as promised, I have the teacher’s Christmas gifts I made time to craft up over the weekend. While looking for ideas I found a tread on the forum at Papertrey Ink about how to reuse the clear boxes that the stamps come in.  One of the ideas was to use it to package up some cocoa and marshmallows, so I took that idea and ran with it. And since I already had the cocoa sliders and the tag that I did for the blog hop it came together pretty quick.

PAPER: Close to my Heart, Basic Grey

Here is a closer look at one.

Here are all of the pieces of the cocoa kit, I added an extra till touch on the lable I used to close the marshmallows.  I think it is the little details that make someone feel special. 

Another little touch I added was to just slide a piece of pattern paper in the back.  I didn't use any adhesive for this.

After showing Mr. Sunny for his approval (really I just showed him because I thought it turned out so cool) he was worried the teacher's would not know that the cocoa was in the slider thing. He said I should put some instructions on the back.  I told him no problem; I have this super cute stamp set that is perfect for this. So I stamped it on a label and used the label (instructions) to hold the box close, which work out great since I was just push the flap inside the box to close it before.

Birthday Card

Happy Birthday Card
STAMPS: PTI Delightful Dahlia, Birthday Bash Sentiment
OTHER: PTI Mat Stack 4, Delightfule Dahlia Die

Due to my never ending Christmas to-do list, I have not had much time for crafting, although I have to make time to whip up some teachers gifts.  So I will have pictures next week to share of the final product.  But today I have a purple birthday card that I made up a few weeks ago and ending up selling to a co-worker.  Since I took the picture some bling was added to the card. For this card I decided to try a technique that Nichole Heady has showcased as an option to do with outline stamps that are traditionally colored in using Copic markers.  And since I have not practice nor purchased any markers yet I decided to try it out.  I think it worked okay, but I got a bit heavy handed at end and tried to spread out the color as much as possible.

Snowman Ornament

Today I have the Christmas gifts I made last year for the boy’s teachers.  When I was searching for a crafty project for the kids teachers I found Jennifer Holmes’s cute snowman ornament. The tutorial is here and it is so easy.

To package up the gifts I used a plain white bag and put in some red shredded paper.  I also whipped up some tags.  It came together easily and was I was able to fit in making three of them over the weekend in between the laundry, grocery shopping and chasing two boys.

Baby, It's cold outside

With the mere mention of possible snow flurries in the forecast earlier this week (there were none to be seen) I was itching to scrapbook the snow pictures from last year. (and I have been wanting to get more of the 2009 pictures done before 2011 starts so be prepared to see some more digital scrapbook pages in the coming weeks) It was so magical last year when we woke up to a white Christmas. Z went out with Mr. Sunny and they had a ball throwing snowballs and making snow angels. H was a bit too small to enjoy the magic of snow. Mr. Sunny enjoyed himself quite a bit and played a few tricks and threw a few snowballs my way too. Now Z wants it to snow again on Christmas, and Mama would like another white Christmas too Santa!(and if it does Mr. Sunny better watch out!)

Big Birthday Wish

Big Birthday Wish Card
STAMPS: PTI Birthday Bash Sentiments, Background Basic: Woodgrain
PAPER: Rusty Pickle, Basic Grey, CTMH cardstock

Today I have a card I made with two purposes in mind. One was to use this Rusty Pickle paper I picked up at a Scrapbook convention about 4 years ago.  I thought the trains were super cute and since I had a boy I would totally be able to use it and a sheet of fire trucks no problem. It’s a good thing I only purchased 1 sheet of each.  I did finally make a scrapbook page using the fire trucks which I will share tomorrow.  But today I needed a boy birthday card for a birthday party we will be attending later in the month.  So to use up the sheet, I made a bunch to have on hand. They were so fast and easy.

A Sweet Christmas

Let’s continue the holiday spirit and share a Christmas card I made using the cute gingerbread man image from PTI's Holiday Button Bits.  I think he is so cute. He definitely turned out better then the gingerbread man cookie we tried to make last year, that’s for sure.
