Back To School Treat Box

Hello My Creative Friends!  I made the following treat box for my son's teacher, Maestra Marta.  She gave all her students quite a few supplies this week that she purchased with her own money!  She is soooo generous, I just want her to know how much she is appreciated right now....before Teacher Appreciation week in May. LOL  It just seems too far away.

1.  Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons file called Oval Window Treat Bag. (It was a Freebie Friday File)  Head on over to her site, cuz there are soooo many cute files to choose from.
2.  My Creative Time's My Teacher Rock's Stamp Set---- 
3.  Apple Rhinestone File from the Silhouette Store (I traced it and welded the apple to make a small card.)
4.  Pinecone Press School Papers

I just love how it turned out!!!  I think it will be a nice little thank you!

Challenge #4 "Shaped Card" Week 3 - Entry #3

Hello My Creative Friends!  Okay, so I made this card for a friend that I haven't seen since I started back at work and I don't want her to think she has been forgotten.  So I made this tiny little shaped Strawberry Card from a Free file from Niki (sorry I can't remember the website address).  I've had the file for quite a while now.   I am happy with the way it came out. So come on over to Silhouette Challenges and join in the fun.
These are the days, I just LOVE my Cameo!  Quick little projects in no time at all.  Print and Cut the Strawberry and put a pop dot to attach it to the shaped strawberry card underneath!  Love the efficiency of these projects! :)

My Creative Time Designer Challenge- Black & White Only

I made this card for a friend of mine who put a workout together for me and laminated it, then she even put a ring through the pages to keep it together with ribbon!  It was adorable.  I love it!  Anyhoo, so I made this thank you card for her!  I hope she likes it.  I used the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Free Trifold Card file from this week.  I also used the My Creative Time, Many Greetings Stamp set for the sentiment on the inside.  I'm sorry the second picture is sideways.  I can't figure out how to turn in in this blog.  On my computer it is right, but when I upload it, it comes out like this.  Why?  I hate my lack of knowledge on a computer!  Anyway, I am so thrilled with the way it came out! :)

Challenge #4 "Shaped Card" Week 3 - Entry #2

Hello, My creative friends!  Well, I made this card for a friend of mine who has been coming to my classroom to help me out.  LOVE HER!  I used the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Freebie file from last week.  The clipboard was just so fitting.  I mirrored it to the left and then welded it together to make the card shape.  I used Emma's All Around Everything and Accessories Stamp Set.  Then I hot glued a See's Candy Lollipop as a little thank you.  Simple and Cute!  Want her to know how much she is appreciated! :)

You can join in the fun too!  Come on over to  and display the shaped card you made using your Cameo. :) (Clipboard file)  (stamps)

3 D Objects Pet Theme Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge

Hello My Creative Friends!  I created this little treat bag for a friend who had oral surgery this past week.  Chocolate makes everything better, right?  LOL  Anyhoo, I used my Silhouette machine to put together this PNG file from SCRAPPIN BUG DESIGNS from the Doctor and Pet File.  Then I used the Peachy Keen Stamps Critter Faces Set A X Large set.
A simple, sweet, and thoughtful gift to let my friend know she is not forgotten during this "Ruff" time.  It only took minutes to make. :)
