Construction has begun....

Well I am sad to say I will not be blogging for a bit. The construction has now begun on my new Scrapbook Room. YEAH!!For right now my all of my belongings are in storage so I won't be able to create many projects. We are hoping that the new room will be finished by the Fall so that I can being classes and my Stamping Six groups. I will be sure to post pictures when we are done.

Happy Birthday Callen

I made this card for Rhys and Rhylan's friend Callen. I used some of the scraps of pattern paper left over from my last few project. I found this ribbon that matched perfectly in my ribbon stash. The monster stamp is from Stampin' Bella. I stamped it with momento ink and coloured it with my copics. The buttons were two buttons that I found in my stash of buttons. The base of the card is made from Real Red Cardsock and a Daffodil Delight Mat.

Baby Alex's Shower Gift

This is the baby shower gift I made for my friend Melissa. The lunchbox right now hold 30 Thank You cards and envelopes, but once those are used up it can hold momento items as Alex gets older.

On the lid I included all of Alex's birth info and a picture I snap of him just a few hours after he was born.

Alex's name was cut using my Gyspy, Circut and the Storybook font.
This is the Thank You cards that are inside of the box. The feet stamp is from Stampin' Up "Baby Prints" stamp set. The Thank You stamp is from a old Stampin' Up set "Many Thanks".

Thank You Bus Driver Bob!

I made this card for Rhys' bus driver. I used the same material as Mrs.Gallo's Thank You card but changed the stamps a bit. The bus stamp is also from the CTMH stamp set "School Days". I added two yellow pieces of ribbon with staples to fill in some blank space in the corner.

No More School!

I made these for Rhys to hand out to her class on the last day of school. They made with a package of Lifesavers with a Hershey Kiss glued on the end. I cut a piece of yellow cardstock to fit around the roll. Before I rolled them I used the "I love School" stamp from the CTMH stamp set "School Days". I also  glued my pink strip of paper to my yellow cardstock before I rolled it around the roll. I did have to use some Liquid Glass along the edge to hold the yellow piece around the Livesavers.

I printed out a tag with my computer and the punched it out with a 1 1/4" circle punch. I the clued the tag to a 1 3/8" circle punched from orange cardstock. I tied on the tag with some Orange Ribbon. To finish of the end of the pencil I punched out a 7/8" circle from the same pink cardstock I used before. I heard they were a huge hit with the class.

Thank You Mrs.Gallo!

This is the Thank You gift I made for Rhys' teacher Mrs.Gallo. I had been seeing a lot of this art on Pinterest and thought it was perfect for a J.K teacher. I started with a large white canvas I purchased at Micheal's. I then cut my letters out of some Contact Paper, the stuff you line shelves with, using my Gypsy and Cricut. I then used 6 boxes of Crayola Crayons and layed out my rainbow pattern. When I was happy I hot glued them in place.Then came the most time consuming part, melting the crayons. I used a heat gun and very slowly heated my crayons letting them run down the canvas. I worked at it very slowly to get a nice colour pattern to make sure all my letters were well covered. When I was happy I then very lightly heated where the letters were an gently pulled them off. I am very happy with how it turned out and so was Mrs.Gallo. She phoned me at home to personally thank me for the gift. I was very touched!

Thank You Card for Mrs.Gallo

This is the card I made for Rhys' teacher Mrs.Gallo. I also duplicated the card and made it for Rhys' Crossing Guard as well. The base of the card is Basic Black cardstock with a Real Red cardstock mat. I used some school themed pattern paper from a paper pack someone gave me from Michael's. The School and the children are from a CTMH stamp set "School Days". The ruler is from a old Stampin' Up set. I stamped it with Basic Black ink onto some scrap yellow cardstock. The Thank You sentiment is from a old Stampin' Up set "Many Thanks". I punched the left side of the line paper with the notebook punch from Stampin' Up. I then mounted it on a mat of Basic Black cardstock. I finished the card off with some staples and two Real Red brads from Stampin' Up.
