Teacher Thank You

At the end of October it was Teacher Appreciation day.  I decided to give my son’s two teachers a package of handmade cards each to let them know how much I appreciated them.  The card above is one of the Thank You cards I made using the Perfectly Preserved stamp set (p29 HC).

My son made some biscuits and his own card for each of his teachers.   My son loves craft (well anything related to construction or using tools!).  We also made some Halloween treat bags at the end of October to give out on Halloween.  He did all the stamping, punching, Big Shot work… before he lost interest and I put in the lollies and tied up the bags.

He has come a long way with his stamping and punching.  Here is a look at what we made:

We used retired Halloween papers from the last catalogue.  The gifts were some marshmallows and lollie teeth in a cupcake base.  All bundled up in some cello bags.

Sydney Heartfelt Event

Last weekend I attended the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Event in Sydney. This is a card front I made for the inspiration board that was on display in the main hall.

You may have noticed the ‘Hope it’s just fabulous’ sentiment.  It is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set (p141 AC).  I decided that this was my favourite part of one of the stamps  so I cut up the rubber to make it a single stamp (I had purchased a clear mount set).

I had an absolutely fabulous time at the event and was inspired by so many talented people!  I have my fingers (and toes) crossed that they bring this event to Canberra next year as it was so much fun!  I highly recommend you attend one of these events either as a Demo or Customer.

I was also excited to be asked to present at the event!  This is one of the reasons my blog has been a bit quiet the last two weeks!  At the Heartfelt Event, I spent 2 hours on a booth giving a presentation on Stampin’ Up! amazing Natural Composition Speciality Designer Series Paper (p162 AC).  I will share some of my projects with you soon.

Cheers Deb
