Tree-Mendous Holiday Wishes!

On to teacher # 2! Logan's 3rd grade teacher is awesome! We really really lucked out with her! I let Logan pick everything out for her jar and I think he did a pretty good job (he designed it with a little guidance...I created it!)

For my tag, I used Jaded Blossoms Treat Tag Die for the tag. It is stamped with their sentiment from 
Merry & Bright. My Christmas tree is cut with my Expression2 from Create A Critter2. My tag is with Echo Park paper and the tree is all scrap paper. Used some stickles on the star, tied twine around the lid to hold the scoop & the green snowflake ribbon is American Crafts. 

This was Logan's favorite part! We vinyl'd an apple onto the opposite side of the jar with a heart in it (found that file in the Silhouette store). I used a JB's Flag Die for the banner. I scored it on each side to make it pop out some. Since I didn't have a stamp that said "Best Teacher", I made one! I combined some JB stamps together and Love the results! The 2 I used are School Rules (for teacher) & Vampires & Zombies Oh My! (for Best).  

One more teacher to go! Hopefully her's will be posted in the next day or so! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Gingerbread Treat Jar

It's that time of the year again! We lucked out this year with some really great teachers for the boys! Very excited to make their gifts this year! 
My Gingerbread treat jar is for our 4th grade teacher. Hope she loves it! 

I used LOTS of great Jaded Blossom goodies for this treat! And, because my cameo decided to not cut paper (i guess shes a vinyl only kinda gal), I pulled out my E2 and actually really enjoyed using it! 

I got this overly cute little scoop from JB. I put twine around it and hot glued it to my AC xmas ribbon. The burlap around the jar I also bought from JB. My tag is from their Treat Tag Die. I also used stamps from Gingerbread Wishes & Winter Wishes. My paper is from Echo Park. 

I added a piece of coordinating cardstock to my burlap so I can stick my gingerbread to the jar using an Action Wobble. I really love these things! I cut my gingerbread man at 2.5" from Create A Critter 2. 

I stamped 45 kisses with JB's Gingerbread Candies
My little guy has a stickle bowtie and pearl buttons.

Thanks for taking a peek!

I am entering my jar into Jaded Blossom's Monthly Challenge. Here's the requirements:

Challenge Guidelines: 
1) Project must be new for this challenge, no back linking

Cupcake Fun

Did you have a great Thanksgiving!? I did! And I got to celebrate the day with my nephew who turned 11! 
I whipped together this quick little card for him and I LOVE how it turned out! 

I used a combination of my Cricut E2 and my Cameo for this one. All paper came from my scrap pile which is slowly dwindling down (a personal goal of mine to use it all up!)

I cut the card base using the Close to my Heart Artiste cartridge.  I then cut the same base out but at a smaller size and layered it on with both the solid paper and the number paper. 

My tags are cut using Jaded Blossom's Mini Tag Dies and stamped with Sweet Birthday Wishes
Jaded Blossom came out with the best idea! All their stamp images (non sentiments) are now svg files so they can be cut out and matched up with the stamp! Of course I had to try it out =) I used the cupcake from Hey Cupcake! and stamped it onto the svg image, I used embossing powder and a heat gun to give the image some character. I LOVE how it turned out! 

My cupcake is sitting on an Action Wobble! I just wish I remembered to take a picture of it in action! worked out perfect for this card! 

He is a HUGE Pittsburgh Steeler's fan so I made him a fun little ornament to go along with this present:

Goodies I used for everything:

Paper from my stash
Close to my Heart Artiste Cartridge
Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies
Jaded Blossom Sweet Birthday Wishes
Jaded Blossom Hey Cupcake!
Jaded Blossom Cupcake SVG image
Green ribbon
Lime Twine
Heat Gun
Lime Embossing Powder

I used the Mini Flag Dies that were shown earlier this week for the release! I stamped the images on using "moose candies" and tied it all together with brown jute twine.

Jaded Blossom ~ November Release Day #4

Welcome to day 4 of the November release! 

Today we will be showcasing ~ 

Gift Cards Galore ~ $15.99
My project for today is a simple, yet elegant gift card holder for a wedding. 
I used a Lori Whitlock file called "library pocket & gift card holder". I love her files...they are so easy to assemble! I found 2 cute champagne flutes to match my wedding paper the gift card is attached to. 

I used the Mini Tag Die that my sentiment is sitting on. I cut the "tag" part off the top of the die since I didn't want that part. My sentiment is from the newly released "Gift Cards Galore" set. 

I added some bling to my corners and the rim of the glasses. 

Supplies Used:

Silhouette Cameo
Jaded Blossom Gift Cards Galore set
All paper is from Recollections (Michaels brand)
