Valentine's Teacher Gifts

I couldn't decide what to make for the kids' teachers for Valentine's Day. I've made them post-its, mini notebooks, card sets, and a bunch of other stuff. I always have to come up with new things because I give their counselor and some of their previous teachers gifties every year. I try to stay away from candy because being a teacher myself, I know that I get a LOT of candy every holiday, more than I can possibly eat. However, being the procrastinator that I am, I knew by Sunday night it had to be something quick and dirty. AND, I knew I had to use TT: Valentine because I bought it last year with the intention of using it every Valentine's Day. So...that's two years of usage. I think I got my money's worth. I CASED Val Stangle's project. It was so incredibly easy, and I just had to buy the candy. Woot!

I don't have a picture, but for the students, we did the same thing as last year. We gave the students mechanical pencils. I'll post a picture soon. Tiny Treats is AWESOME!

Stamps: Tiny Treats: Valentine
Ink:Tuxedo Black (Memento), Pure Poppy
Paper: Pure Poppy, SS White
Other: Ribbon, Copics, Scallop Punch (EK), Circle Punch (EK), Address labels (Avery), transparencies

Color Challenge AND Make It Monday

This card is for the color challenge and for Make It Monday. I used Lisa Johnson's color palette because it matched with the "love" theme I had going on for Make It Mondays. 

 I decided to do a "love" themed card so I could give it to my husband...because he rarely gets cards from me. Lol. It really doesn't matter what color I make it because he's color blind. It was difficult to figure out where I'd incorporate Spring Rain, but I decided to make the heart that color because it contrasted all the Pure Poppy already on the card.'s different. 

Card Details: (All supplies PTI unless otherwise noted.)
Stamps: Just the Ticket, Tiny Treats: Valentine, Mega Mixed Messages, Daily Designs Sentiments, Contempo Alphabet (SU), Tall Tales Numbers (SU), Love Bandit (SU)
Ink: Pure Poppy, Onyx Black (Versafine)
Paper: Kraft, Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream, Spring Rain
Other: Heart Prints die

My Favorite PTI Project from Last Year

PTI challenged us to post our favorite project from last year. Mine is definitely the felt cozies, which I had a blast making. I still use mine regularly. (This post was originally shared May 26, 2010.

Here's the cozy I made for me. Sewing these cozies is so fun. The only issue I'm having is that it seems like the cup has a little curve so I can't quite get the cozy to fit as nicely as I'd like. Plus, my sewing skill is not the greatest, so I guess I'll just have to live with the fit.

For this cozy I used the larger scallop die. I like it. I also used Nesties Dahlia for the flowers. Now I need more felt. Buwahahahaha.

Card Details: (All supplies PTI unless otherwise noted.) 
Supplies: HS Felt, Raspberry Fizz Felt, True Black Felt, White Vintage Button, White Thread, Nesties Dahlia
