Sticky note holder for the gift this month. Super quick to make and it was fun to find notepads in colors that nearly matched the colors used in the rainbow. I found the notepads on Amazon - they're vintage colors... Continue reading

Spring was here for a week or so, but winter came roaring back yesterday with a bit of snow and some pretty cold air blew in with it as well. Grateful we aren't having the blizzard like weather or getting... Continue reading

We started doing Teacher Appreciation "thank you's" last August. It's been fun to add this to our monthly creative calendar. This month we opted for a less traditional St Patrick's day color scheme -- and made some sour cream sugar... Continue reading

Not sure if the title of this tag brings the song to mind or not, but when I thought about making this, it came to mind and of course, that means we need a sound module and the song to... Continue reading

Clean and simple and all white. This tag has a few things that set it apart from other tags. It lights up! I used the score board to score the background circles for this tag. They are taped securely to... Continue reading

We're now in the middle of the week and it's day three of the reveal. It's going quickly! This tag was inspired by one seen on Pinterest. I thought that creating the dotted layer would be more difficult than it... Continue reading

January has been a busy month to get a start on making cards -- my regular stack of cards using a pre-colored digital stamp from Polkadoodles. Thankfully, they allowed me to make a few extras beyond the Angel Policy for... Continue reading
