Happy National Scrapbook Day

Well I'm finally feeling a little better and was able to get into my craft room this weekend. I couldn't stand it any longer feeling sick so I forced my self to play in my room. The whole time I wasn't feeling well I had so many ideas floating in my head. I think it is time to get an art journal going so if this happens again I can be ready to get my ideas out of my head and done.

Well Teacher Appreciation week is coming up fast and I am making a gift basket to give to my DD's teacher. Here are just a few of the things I have finished for the basket, I just love how the explosion box turned out. This was my first attempt to try to make one of these. (Recipe for this is papertry Ink card stock, misc pattern paper, Hero art stamp sets, misc, ribbon for Michael's).

I made a note pad for Erin teacher using those composition books, I used misc pattern paper, and a misc stamp set (I wish I kept the info on that set because I am using it a lot)

Here is a post-it-note holder I made to go into a basket I'm putting together for Erin's teacher. This was my first attempt and I wasn't happy on how the pen holder turned out. Wish I would of made it smaller.

Recipe for above post it note holder - Misc pattern paper, Stampative apple stamp, Misc, just a note stamp, Kraft paper, pen, 3m post it notes

The following cards I thought I would change it up a little bit. Usually I reach for images for my cards but today I went with using just sentiments. I am starting to appreciate more simple looking cards

(recipe for card above - Papertrey Ink card stock, cuddlebug swiss dot embossing folder, Hero arts stamp)

(recipe for card above - Papertrey Ink card stock, misc. flower emblishment, DCWV pattern paper, Hero art stamp set)

It felt great to be able to work in my craft room I think I was seriously going through withdrawals symptoms. I hope everyone was able to enjoy National Scrap booking Day! Can't wait to get some time to see what all my buddies have made and as always Thank you so much for visiting my blog, have a wonderful weekend and stop by again,
