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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
