Custom notebooks

My daughter was invited to the neighbor girl's for a birthday celebration. As a teacher, I have a bit of an obsession with school supplies and I just bought a few sets of Mr. Sketch smelly markers on sale. What little girl wouldn't love smelly markers?! But... You do need something to write on so we made her a customized notebook! 

This notebook measures 7"x7" and has plain white paper on the inside. The first page contains a personalized note from my daughter. 

We made the covers out of chipboard. The front cover is torn strips of scrap paper selected by my daughter. We then used the Cupcake Lite Cricut cart for the lettering. 

We made this personalized birthday notebook in under an hour and are ready for the party!

Classroom Wishlist made using the general idea from Scholastic but with my own twist using the Life's a Beach cartridge!

Dance Team Good Luck gifts

It is competition season for Dance Team and I wanted to do something cute for the girls. After perusing Pinterest for awhile, I decided on Pop Rocks!

Each competition the girls also get a piece of ribbon to tie on their bag. By the end of the season or a couple of years they have a really cool poof of ribbons on their Dance bags!

I'll add more as we go along!

Spring Tag swap

Another tag swap! These are really fun to be a part of. The theme this time was Spring. I wanted to think of something different than the flowers and Easter-y things that first come to mind.
i decided to make all of the Spring rain into a happy topic.

I used the Cricut Lite cart Crocs Rule for this. Lots of Glossy Accents helped create the shiny slicker and rain on the umbrella.

St. Patrick's Day tag swap

Hello! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! I participated in a tag swap in a new crafting group I have joined and I really enjoyed working on something again!

Eacg tag had different beading hanging from top with some great charms I found at Hobby Lobby.

One of the best parts? My son was born on the day the tags were due to be mailed! I made sure to request from my hospital bed that my husband got them mailed off! :)

Graduation layout

Yes, this is a graduation layout, even though you don't see any graduates! These pictures were taken at the party, where it was one of the first times our daughter met many of her relatives.

The graduation hat was cut from the Cricut Recess Lite cart, at 3".
