Sugar Nellies

We once again have guests coming into our home tomorrow so I'll be MIA again this weekend. BUT before I go, I want to share something I got in the mail the other day:
It's an INTERNATIONAL envelope! I've NEVER gotten mail from outside of the USA so imagine my surprise when I opened it to see this:
It's a BRAND NEW Suger Nellie stamp called Flowers. It's it ADORABLE! I won it on her website. If you haven't seen them, please go over and take a look! There are some amazing stamps!
And because I've been so lucky lately, I'm gathering STUFF for you know... BLOG CANDY! So keep checkin' back!
Have a great weekend!

New Creations!

Hi everyone! So sorry I've been MIA. Things just have been CRAZY that I really haven't had a chance to update my blog. I've been creating, just not updating!LOL!

Anywho, I thought I'd show a few things I did for my daughter's Pre-school teachers for end of year gifts. This is a mini scrapbook I created from one sheet of 12x12 cardstock. Thanks Vicki for the tutorial! I took a couple pics and matted them, added some teacher quotes and voila, a cute gift! I bound it with BIA and added ribbons to each pull out, so it was easy to look at each "tag". Here's the outside:

And the inside:

For presentation I took this (on sale at M's for less than $2)

And covered it with coordinating paper (run through my Cuttlebug). I then added their set of note cards and beaded pen, and a gift card (all coordinated colors). I even took the cello bags and stamped flourishes on them then tied them with silver twine with a monogram tag.

They were a big hit since they weren't the traditional apple, candle, etc. type of gift. Especially the gift card (American Express!). My daughter's teachers have been wonderful to her this year and I wanted them to feel special that I took the time to create something just for them for all they've done for her and us.

Hope each of you have a wonderful weekend. Here in the USA it's Memorial Weekend, which is a time to pay tribute to all those soldiers that have fallen giving their lives for our freedom and to say thank you to those that are still serving (or have served). If you know someone that has/is part of the military, let them know you appreciate them, their sacrifice and their dedication. I know I will.

Until later,
