teacher gifts

i made some little baskets for all the teachers and helpers and wrapped some chocolate in green foil to look like apples to match the baskets.  i handcut all the baskets using a template and i drilled some holes in the pencils and added chains with thank you


i also made notebook holders for the two main teachers,  the papers i got from etsy and a digital stamp to finish off,  my children wrote inside all their favourite things about the teacher

thank you and retirement card



This card was made for my autistic support worker,  who does an amazing job, she is retiring this term and they will not be replacing her. as well as making loads of cuts to autistic services, which seems to be the norm these days.
anyway the card is made using a LOTV stamp coloured with promarkers and mounted on a die from spellbinders papers from stash and flowers are from wild orchard and finished with corsage pins .

my sons 18th

I normally find boys cards quite hard but i wanted to go with a bit of a rock theme for him as that is what he is into among other things.  I made three things for him,  a card,  an exploding box and an ideas book as he is writing his first novel and plans to write more so needs somewhere to jot down ideas.

i used a Kenny k digi image for the card and book and this was all done in black and green and were both coloured with promarkers,  i used a selection of background papers from kaiser kraft which had lots of positive quotes in the pad which was useful for the exploding box, and some saville row candi and the odd flourish which i think are memory box
