the sky's the limit

Card for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch challenge #39
I really liked this set when I ordered it, but it hasn't got a lot of play.  So I decided to challenge myself to use it.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and feel that the colors are unisex.  Enjoy.

teacher appreciation gifts

So my son's middle school sent out a request for teacher appreciation gifts.  So I thought what a great way to use up some of the special papers that I had on hand.  I am so excited!  I made 2 sets of coordinating cards (which they can give) and a mini scratch pad that they could keep for themselves and included a Starbucks gift card in each, because everything is sweeter with a drink from Starbucks.
I really like how the cards turned out and it was fun to change them up just a little.
 So this is the keep calm bundle.  Pretty cute, yes?  I really loved this Stampin' Up Sell-a-bration paper.
 And oohh...butterflies with some more of the DSP.
Then the coolest part, I bundled them all up with with some pool party ribbon (also sell-a-bration) the gift cards are on the back.  I think they look so cute in the little clear bags.  Best wishes for happy cards!
