Ladybug Samples

Amanda is soon to have her baby -yeah! She is decorating the nursery in this cute ladybug theme from Target. I think that I captured the colors from the cute stuff. These are all sample cards for her to choose her style for the shower Thank You cards.

Purple Tin

RobNBobTin This is a tin that I decorated and had tabs made. The center picture shows the inside of the tin. On this tin, I made a pocket on the inside of the lid. It could hold stamps or notes. This paper is from Rob and Bob Studio.

Glam Girl Card Special Order

GlamGirlCards My first custom greeting card order was for a Mary Kay consultant. This Glam Girl (discontinued StampinUp!) stamp set is PERFECT! I had printed off a special message from the consultant that was inside each card. She used the cards as Thank Yous to her hostesses and each was used as a coupon on future purchases. Thank you!

Post-It Holder

I made this to go with a set of cards. The colors are coral, yellow, and green. I sponged the flower cut-outs for more color.

Soccer Coach Gift Set

Here's a set that I finished for a soccer coach (I made 3 matching sets for the asst coaches as well). The set includes: Clipboard, Post-It holder, Covered NotePad, decorated Pen, Magnet, and Thank You Card. I made the soccer field on the clipboard using MSWord. The team colors were blue and white.

Teacher Stationary Set

This was my first stationary set. I used 20 half-page size cut paper and stamped along the bottom and top using StampinUp! discontinued school stamps. I also stamped the 10 coordinating envelopes. The stationary was put into a folder and tied with ribbon closure. This set is worth $15.

Teacher Birthday Card Set

This is a basic teacher birthday card set of 25 birthday cards. The insides of the cards are blank. The set shown was my first - so newer sets are more deocrative. I donated this set as a door-prize for the teacher appreciation luncheon at my daughter's school.
A teacher birthday card set would cost $35.00. This is a Teacher Special price!

Teacher Bookmarks

These bookmarks were laminated and ribbon tied. I made the set to be used as a door-prize for the Teacher Appreciation luncheon at my daughter's school. The classrooms at the school don't have more than 25 kids, so that's why I made 25 bookmarks.
This Bookmark set of 25 is worth $18.
Non-laminated set would cost $15.

Kids Games Book

I made a bunch of these books as party favors for my daughter's birthday. Each book contained 5 laminated pages - plus blank front and back covers. Each book was spiral bound. The games were: Hangman, Crossword, Maze, Travel Bingo, Word Search, Hangman, Word Scramble, and Draw Your Own Picture. Dry-Erase Crayons or markers are to be used on these pages. The books used discontinued SEI paper (it's the way to get stuff on clearance!). They were a HUGE hit at the party. One (1) Book of Games = $15.

Mom's Address Binder

This is an address book binder that I created for my mom for Mother's Day. I used a half-page 3-ring view binder. I created the tabs with a heart punch. I used adhesive business card holders on the tabs. She wanted somewhere to put business cards. I created the address entries on the computer. I used light periwinkle and brown colors. I like the binder style so that it makes for easy additions or deletions. Address binder price is $20.

Americana Gift Set

Complete Americana gift set - 8 greeting cards, 1 bookmark, 1 notebook, 1 post-it note holder w/pen, and 1 decorated tin.

Christy's Americana Set

Here's the rest of the Americana set that Christy ordered. I loved using the star punches. This paper hadn't been used in so long and I'm so glad to bring it out of "retirement". The set included the greeting cards and bookmark from the other post.

Americana is in full swing! A great girlie ordered some cards in stars and stripes. I found the perfect paper pack from Making Memories in the Sam line (I think it's been discontinued).

Fireman Set

With Father's Day coming up, I have gotten into the "masculine" mood for making stuff. I made some Fire Dept related greeting cards and a post-it note holder. My husband works for the Fire Dept and that's why I have this stamp set. It's hard to see the fire truck in blue - it didn't come out as dark as I'd like, but it was my first try using the new stamp.

Chrystie's Tin

Here is the tin that I made for my sister-in-law. It is lavendar and turquoise. She loves those colors. I made a set of greeting cards and card dividers to coordinate with the tin.

Basketball Post-It

This is a post-it note holder that I made for my daughter's basketball coach. I put a picture of the team with it. The girls had a great season and their coach was wonderful with them! I used some Jolee's basketball stickers and orange cardstock to decorate the holder.
