Christmas Stamp-A-Stack Sneak Peak and PPA 145

I very busy getting ready for my annual Christmas Stamp-A-Stack tomorrow night and thought I would give everyone a little sneak peek as to what I have in store!  I try to keep things pretty simple when it comes to Christmas cards since most people are trying to make many multiples.  I got the sketch idea for this card from one of my favorite sketch sites, Pals Paper Arts.  This is their sketch PPA145.  I still have room in my class for anyone still interested in attending!

Here are the card ingredients:
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Paper: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Holiday Collection Framelits

School Days

It is hard to believe another year of school is just around the corner!  I am not sure I am ready for my kids to be heading back to school just yet.  In light of this upcoming event, I thought it might be nice to show you one of my "school days" creations from this past year.  Coming from a family of teachers, I realize how much these wonderful individuals do for our children each and every day.  So every year when Teacher Appreciation Week comes around, I like to do something special for my children's teachers.  This is what I made for my son's first grade teacher this year during Teacher Appreciation Week.  It is a teacher's survival kit.  I got the idea for the contents of the kit from fellow demonstrator, Lucia Dawe.  I hope this inspires you to recognize a teacher in your child's life this school year!

The contents of the kit follow a poem that is hooked to the underside of the lid:

Teacher’s Survival Kit

Animal cookies for when your classroom seems like a zoo.
Band-Aids for when things get a little rough.
Chewing Gum to help you stick to it.
Crayons to color your day bright and cheerful.
Candle for when you are up late grading papers.
Eraser to remind you everyone makes mistakes.
Lifesavers For when you've had one of those days.
Marbles to replace the ones you've lost.
Mounds Bar for the mounds of confidence you give your students.
Paperclips to hold it all together.
Pencil to "write your wrongs."
Rubber band to remind you to be flexible.
Shiny Penny to remind you that each will shine in his or her own special way.
Starburst to give you a "burst" of energy when you need it.
Tissues to wipe away the tears...yours and theirs.
Toothpick to help you "pick" out the good qualities in others and yourself,
and a prayer for you to say at the start of each day.

God, please help me,
to strengthen their voices,
bodies and minds,
to express their feelings and
control them sometimes,
to explore what's near
and venture afar,
but most important to love
who they are.

A Little Scrapping Done

This past Wednesday, I hosted my monthly club and we were using The Open Sea set.  When I was talking to the ladies about how much I loved this set and had gotten it for scrapbooking, I was reminded that I still have not used it for that purpose.  I have had this set for over a year and have been going to town with cards but no pages.  So, I broke out an old Stampin' Success magazine (a great perk of being a demonstrator) and cased this great page featured on the cover with a few modifications.  As a family who loves going to the Cape in the summer, this is a fabulous set for scrapping our great summer picks.  Please note the DSP paper, letter dies and buttons used are retired, but you can easily swap them for something else and have a great page.

Here are the ingredients:
Stamps: The Open Sea
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, DSP Nautical Expeditions
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Buttons, Kraft Buttons, Quilting Thread, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Alphabet Simple Letters Die

Freshly Made Sketches #42

I love this new stamp set, By the Seashore!  As someone who has grown up going to Cape Cod every summer, I look forward to the new beachy sets that Stampin' Up! comes out with.  I can't wait to use this set in some of my scrapbook pages this summer!

Today's card uses a sketch from another sketch challenge I recently came across, Freshly Made Sketches.  They put out a new sketch every Wednesday.  I encourage you to check it out if you need a little inspiration.  The color scheme was inspired by a line of beachy clothing my boys have in their wardrobe.  After I picked out the colors, I realized the sketch this week uses similar colors!

Here are the details for recreating this card:
Stamps: By the Seashore, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Calypso Coral, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy
Paper: Calypso Coral, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Accessories: Tasteful Trim BigZ Die
