MPS Design Team Day - Teacher Gifts

Welcome to My Pink Stamper Design Team post day! Today's theme is Teacher appreciation gifts. I was so excited for this project, as a teacher myself, because I had seen something on Pinterest that I've been wanting to make for a while...a gift caddy. Here's how it turned out....

Most Sonic drive-thrus are more than willing to give you one or two drink caddies for free, so I thought this would be an inexpensive way to put a gift together. I added a soda, some sweet treats and and apple (of course) to finish it off. I used My Pink Stamper School Days to make my own "background" paper and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I used My Pink Stamper Yummy-licious for the "to/from" tag. The apple is from the Cricut Preserves cartridge, and the "for my teacher" is from my fave font, Don Juan.

My Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Welcome to the April edition of the My Pinkalicious Blog Hop! If you just hopped over from Renee's at I Came, I Saw, I Created, then you're in the right place! If you're just stopping by for a visit and would like to hop along, go to My Pink Stamper to start at the beginning.

Our theme for today's project is Mother's Day. I was excited to get this card done, because I knew exactly what I wanted to do...and I am even more excited about delivering it to my mother with a cookie bouquet on Mother's Day at her job (thank goodness she never comes to my blog to check out my work, or the surprise would be ruined). For today's project, I made a flower pot, insert card....

All of the patterned paper I used (except the leaves) are from Imagine More Cards, and all flower cuts are from Flower Shoppe - I love this cartridge for flowers!! The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's Hope and Courage stamp set. All I need to do now is add a personalized note, and I'm all set for Mother's Day!
