So... I made these about a month ago as a gift for the principal at my son's elementary school. My intention was for her to pass them out to the staff at the school. She was so happy with them that she saved them for a special event that was planned with the school staff. I stacked the m&m's so that the colors would mirror the apple that I had stamped on the tag.
All suplies are Stampin' Up!, except the m&m's.
Stamps: Apple Blossoms (retired hostess set)
Paper: Whisper White and Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Ink: Chocolate Chp, Real Red and Garden Green Markers
Ribbon: Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and Real Red/White Polka Dot Ribbon (retired)
Other: 1x8 Cello Bags, Dimensionals, Circle Punch and Scallop Circle Punch
Have a great day!

I have seen the "Thanks for making me a Smartie" gifts for teachers for years and wanted to make one for Ian's teacher as an end of the year gift. It was a great year, and I can't imagine a better fit for Ian (or me) than Mrs. Logan. I'm trying to remember what this jar is from, maybe it was a jelly jar. I have my husband well trained at this point, if he sees an empty jar on the counter he asks me if I am planning on saving it.
I printed the sentiment on my printer, here are the rest of the details (all supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Artistic Etchings
Paper: Love Letter DSP
Ribbon: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Linen Thread
Have a great day!

Next was Stampin' Up!'s annual convention in Salt Lake City, UT and it was a blast! Convention was super fun, but I have to say that what really made it for me was the group of ladies that were with me. Julie, Theresa, Heidi, Maria and Maureen were honestly the best travel buddies anyone could have. I laughed so much while we were together, it was like a workout (kind of). Here's a picture of our group... check out those awesome lanyards that Julie made for us with Stampin' Up!'s fabric
I am going to try to blog more often (yeah, I know... I've said that before). Wish me luck!

So, without further ado, here are the frames and the sneak peeks of the cards...

I have a good friend who is going through some health problems right now. She is so blessed with an amazing family and friends who have been helping take care of her and her family while she is being treated. Meals have been coming three times a week, and I wanted to make her some thank you cards in case she wanted to send something to someone. She loved the card that we made at our club meeting last month, so I did something very similar. I made a dozen cards with decorated envelopes for her, all twelve are a little different. I wanted to make a tag to put on the bag in place of a card from me to her. I LOVE the Fun Flowers Die, I can't wait to get it. My amazing friend let me use hers to make all of these flowers, thanks Heidi!
Paper: Crumb Cake and Springtime Vintage DSP
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip marker (usd with Spritzer Tool) and Crumb Cake (used with dauber on the "frame" of the card)
Accessories: Vintage Brads, Sponge Dauber, Spritzing Tool, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Basic Parls, Certainly Celery 1-1/4" Stripped Ribbon, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and the Big Shot (of course)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I made these m&m candy sticks for a crop that I was involved in at the end of January. I filled half of the bags with regular m&m's and the other half with peanut butter m&m's. My friend Heidi has a soft spot for the peanut butter m&m's. Until recently I had never even tried them.
I really love making these little bags, they always impress the recipient, yet they are so easy to put together. I am working on some for Easter to send to my kid's classes. I will post them as soon as I have them completed.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Cute by the Inch (current hostess set)
Ink: Early Espresso and Real Red (marker)
Paper: Whisper White and Red Glimmer Paper
Other: 1x8 bags from GT Bag, 1/16" circle hole punch, 1-1/4 square punch, scallop square extra-large punch and crochet thread
Have a great day.
