Pencil Holding Tins for My Classroom

Just wanted to share the cute tins I made to hold pencils at each table in my classroom.  This year I think I am going to name each table by the animal on their tin.  Tell me what you think?
I used Create a Critter Cartridge and Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons Cartridge ( ) to make the animals.  Of course the cute little faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps.

Throwback Thursday Challenge- Something Christmas and use fabric

I made this to start making my gifts for Christmas.  Since the theme of the challenge was Christmas.  For the use of some sort of material, I used beautiful silver ribbon. (This picture does not do this ribbon justice. hehehe)  I used the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons Cartridge to make the snowman.  The cute little face is from Peachy Keen Stamps.  And the tag is from My Creative Time's die cut scallopped circle.  The entire idea was obviously based on Emma's video a few days ago on a gift jar she did with chocolate candies.  I thought it was genius and wanted to get started on my gifts as well.  So I started with a jar filled with my very favorite holiday drink....Hot Cocoa!!!

Birthday Card----Monkey Saying Feliz Cumpleanos!

For this card I used the Create a Critter Cartridge for the monkey and branch.  I used My Creative Time's die cut for the cut out to put my sentiment on.  And the sentiment is from My Creative Time's  stamps set for birthdays. (I forgot exactly what it is called.)  But I love all her stuff.  You should go check her stuff out!  The embossed green paper is from the Polk o Dot embossing folder by Provo Craft.  I used my Cuttelbug again!  (Thank you to my Bestie for getting it for my Birthday last year!)  I love it!!!  I made it for my Brother in Law's Birthday at the end of the month cuz I  know I won't have time once I start back at work on Monday. hehehe  Thanks for stopping by!  Leave me a comment, it always makes me smile! :)
