Mother's Day

I teach six and seven year olds in my church.
It was my turn to teach on Mother's Day so I  made
them a little something that they could give their mom.

The flower is made from a mold using candy melts.
Super easy!  The cute tag that is from a song 
was a freebie from My Computer is My Canvas.
They are the Mother's Day Leaf Tags.
I then imported them into my Silhouette 
and had it do the cutting out!

The card is made from a brown paper sack.
HERE is where I found the tutorial and 
printables  to make this card.

Un-frog-getable Mother's Day

Un-frog-getable Mother's Day card.  I used Treasure Box Designs
Cuckoo Critter Frog.  I think she is super cute!!
I did a print and cut on my Silhouette Cameo with the frog,
and the paper is from Lettering Delights and is in

I printed both the background paper, the frog and the sentiment
on photo paper so that the colors are more vivid.
The frog is attached with pop dots.
I used Michaels Recollections 5"x 6.5" cards and envelopes.
I haven't used these in the past, but bought some at a recent
sale and I have to say that I have quite enjoyed them.

Teacher Appreciation

This has been such a fun week.  We started it by decorating our teachers door 
and then brought her a surprise gift each day of teacher appreciation week.
All of these projects are super simple my little guy
was able to help on every project which
makes it all the more special.
The cookies are from PPBN Designs.

#1 Teacher
This tin can was found at Hobby Lobby
The flowers are from the Cricut Cartridge George and Basic Shapes 
and the #1 Teacher is from the Cricut Cartridge Makin' the Grade.
This adorable idea was found on The Happy Scraps Blog 
with one slight adustment.  I measured the top of the dry erase marker
and then created a circle that size in my Silhouette program
and grouped it together with my George flower. 
It was my little guys idea to color the flowers
the color of the marker and he had a BLAST doing it!

World's Greatest Teacher!
This project was made using a download from
The wrappers are printed out and wrapped
around nugget candy bars.  The ones with 
the toffee are my favorite.

Teacher You're The Balm
The printable for the eos lip balm is from

For The Best Teacher Ever! 
This is another download from
These are magnets made from bottlecaps.

I Touch the Future. I Teach.
This phrase was purchased from the Silhouette Store.
The cup was from the local Dollar Tree and 
the sentiment from Crazy Little Projects.
Inside the cup it some Propel flavor packets.

That's how we roll!

This is a 6x6 card made for my son's birthday.
He is fifteen and his birthday requests are:
Panda Express Gift Card
Sushi for his birthday dinner
and Cadbury mini eggs 
(good thing his birthday is around easter!)

I got these adorable graphics from Pretty Paper Graphics.  
This file is called Silly Sushi.
I didn't have much time to create this card so I used the .png files.
I printed the files on photo paper, and then
I cut the graphics out with my Silhouette Cameo.
The paper in the background is from Lettering Delights and is
found in the Ninja Kicks paper pack.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse

Fun Mickey and Minnie Mouse birthday card!
I hate that it has the dated stamped on it, :)
yes I can be a slacker!

I used the Cricut Cartridge Mickey and Friends and
spiced it up with some glitter for Minnie and
Glossy Accents on the eyes.
These cuties are connected to the card with an
action wobble so that it wobbles!!!

I have entered this card in the Action Wobble Challenge.

St. Patricks Day

Each year for St. Patrick's day I cover my children's doors with
shamrocks and a sign that says You've been sham"rocked"!
Kind of a fun spin off of the heart attack idea.

This year these cute little jars of gold will be waiting for them at
at the end of their rainbow!!

Each rolo has a cute little pattern or saying on the bottom of it.
I found these cute printables in the etsy store

14 Days of Valentine's

I decided to do the 14 days of Valentine's for my family this year.
Here are the treats that they received.  I am missing one. 
It was "You're a CHIP off the old block" and came with a can of Pringles.

I packaged each treat individually because it ended up saving money in the long run.
I just bought big bags and divided it up equally.
I got my saying ideas from Here, there is even a free printable!

I might be a peanut...

Another valentine.  Funny story behind this valentine, I had been doing the 14 days of valentine's for my kids this year.  Each day they woke up with some sort of treat and a "Punny" saying that went a long with it.  One day after my five year old woke up and I read the saying to him he came up with his own.  "I might be a peanut, but I would risk my life to save my friends!", and then he would laugh hysterically.  I never really got the pun, but oh well, he repeated it daily!
I decided that would be the perfect sentiment for his valentine this year and this SVG fit perfectly.

This SVG is from Little Scraps of Heaven.
The background is from an embossing folder called tiny hearts 
from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby).
The twine is made by Maya Road and is also found at Hobby Lobby
with a 40% off coupon it is an awesome deal.

New Stamp Storage

I am so EXCITED!!!  I am upgrading my stamp storage!
I went with my son, to our local Deseret Industries (thrift store),
 and found this Gem, the best part is it was only $3.  

This is an old cassette tape storage rack.
It was originally a deep brown veneer, but my husband spray
painted it black for me and I LOVE It!

Here is what it looks like with my stamp pads in it!!!

Here is a link to my previous stamp storage.  I was kinda sad
to see it go!  A lot of time and effort was put into this baby!
This is an awesome alternative if you can't 
find an old cassette tape storage rack.
