End of Year Teacher Gifts – Bag and Tag

So pleased to finally be out of self-isolation. I have managed to go to church and my other choir practice, so nice to be able to meet up with other people. One side-effect of the self-isolation is that Arwen and I are now singing the Six Soundtrack.

End of Year Teacher Gifts – Post-it Note Holder and Pen Set

It has been a weird week. Being in self-isolation has meant we have all been at home together all week and everybody is keeping their own timetable. Getting up at 4am and nipping to the loo or getting a drink you could bump into anyone. It has become almost normal that people are cooking in the middle of the night 😆 All our tests have come back negative and our 10 days are up tomorrow. Now will begin the fun task of trying to encourage everyone to get back to a normal routine 😀

Today’s project is the gift that I made for the teacher’s. It’s a post-it note holder and pen set. I sell quite a few of these at school fairs.

Glue the last scored section to the back panel leaving the slits for the pen.

Christmas in July – Perfectly Plaid Yule Card

The last in my Christmas in July series is actually a Yule card rather than a Christmas Card using one of my favourite Christmas sets from the annual catalogue.

Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set – Annual Catalogue 2021/2022 page 93

Base Card – Evening Evergreen 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
Sentiment – Basic White Cardstock 3″ x 1″

Inside layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

The background was blended in Balmy Blue and Soft Succulent.

I used second generation stamping (stamping off on scrap paper before stamping the actual image to get a lighter image) for the trees in the background.

Christmas in July- Emboss Resist Snowflake Card

My daughter has got Corvid and is at home with her two small children. We are also self-isolating as she had visited us the day before. We are talking a lot by video messenger. Today’s card is the result of asking my grandchildren what colour my snowflake card should be. My 6 year-old granddaughter said blue and my 3 year-old grandson said pink😀

Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set – Annual Catalogue 2021/2022 page 90

Card Base – Balmy Blue 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″

Sentiment – Balmy Blue 3 1/2″ x 1″

The snowflakes were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I then used sponge daubers to add colour to the card.

The sentiment was stamped in Whisper White ink and then fussy cut.

They have promised us some cooler weather, so I may get around to doing some more crafting. It’s been too hot to do anything 😀

Until next time, happy crafting
