Aimee's Backpack Tag

As some of you you may know, my oldest daughter Aimee started Kindergarten last week. Part of her "must haves" for school was of course a backpack. Since I know that everything that goes to school needs to be labeled, I wanted to make her a backpack tag that had all her information on it. Coming up with the idea was easy, since she fell in love with the tag I made for my convention bag. So, I surprised her by making her her own Pony Party tag for her backpack! I selected colors that would match her backpack and of course added glitter to make it sparkle. On the back I printed out her name, address, and phone number.

Here is a shot of the tag on her Princess backpack.

Official Visit from the Tooth Fairy

My oldest daughter is now at the age where she is starting to lose her baby teeth. She has lost two already, so I am a little late with this project, but it is now done and ready for her when she loses her next one!

I embellished this little tin box for her to use when she looses her teeth. I used the new Tooth Fairy stamp for this project. Here is a shot of the box.

I covered the top, bottom, and sides with Blushing Bride Designer Paper from the Hostess Level 1 paper pack. Next I used the narrow taffeta ribbon in Whisper White to create a cute little bow around the box. I stamped the Tooth Fairy stamp on Whisper White card stock and then colored her in with my markers. I then added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to it. I punched it out and layered on a punched out large scalloped circle in Blushing Bride card stock.

For the inside, I lined both the top and bottom of the box with Blushing Bride card stock. I then punched out a piece of the Blushing Bride Designer Paper with the Petal Card punch, assembled it, and then attached it to the bottom of the box with a dimensional. This little envelope is where the tooth will go.

Next I used the Scallop Envelope die to cut out a little envelope that the Tooth Fairy can use to put the money in. I added another punch out of the Tooth Fairy stamp to the envelope as well.

On the other side of the envelope I used Aimee's name stamp to stamp her name and label the envelope.

The envelope fits right inside the box!

Here is the completed project!

So I had her pick out and image and I cut it out. So, here is what we ended up with - Lightning McQueen bursting off the front of this card! I think it turned out really cute! I used all Stampin' Up! card stock for this, because as we all know, it is the best! :)

August Technique Class

Today I would like to share with you the cards we did at my August Technique class this past weekend. Like what you see? Then plan on attending my next class on September 12th! Contact me for details.

For this month's class I used a lot of the new techniques I learned at Convention this year. First we did this card. We used Shimmer Paint to add sparkle to the flower.

This next card uses another technique I learned at Convention called Punch Highlighting.

And another awesome idea from convention is this Pinwheel Card. This one was a big hit! And yes, the Pinwheel actually spins!

And it is a pocket card! We mounted our card front right on top of the envelope and added the insert. Super cute and easy idea!

And last but not least, is this card we made using the Baby Wipe technique. This card is similar to one of the swap cards I took to convention. We just jazzed up the sentiment a little with some additional punches and a rhinestone brad.
