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

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

card for a friend

This was a card made for a friend for her friend , i used a lilli of the valley image coloured with promarkers and first edition sweet owl papers and finished off with ribbon and a charm and flowers from my stash


I recently did Arts week at my sons primary school and at the end of the week i did some demos on how to make cards,  i made these just to show what i do and i did some demonstrations on how promarkers work (not that im an expert but they were only 5-7 so easily impressed) and i also showed how to make rolled paper roses and embossing using the big shot,  i really enjoyed it and most of the children were asking loads of questions which was good.

Mothers day cards

 this card was made using a lilli of the valley image, coloured with promarkers, with paper and card from my stash and flowers coloured with promarkers and finished with ribbon and a charm

I made this card using the same lilli of the valley image as above.  These came free in a mag but i ended up with 3 of the mags as i loved the images so much.   i have made an easel card using acetate and the frame was made using a punch around the page, finished off with flowers from my stash coloured with promarkers
