Gifts~ Post It Organiser

This is another little gift I made for the childrens teachers, well this is one of them as I made 4. I have got the design from a wonderful blog I visit by a very talented Lady called Angie, you can see all her tutorials here but be warned! If you have never been to this fabulous blog before you may prepare yourself a flask of tea lol. Anyway, this is another very simple project but doesn't it look great! It took about 5 minutes to make (well.......the second, third and fourth one took 5 minutes each but the first took a bit longer) and the post it pads were all bought from tesco's for pennies.

Gifts~ Plant Pot Holder

I've made this little pot holder using Patterns Designer Series Paper~Pumpkin Pie, this is my favourite paper and colour for this week, I change my mind everytime I use a new paper lol. I came up with this design by accident, don't know if it has been thought of before but I needed boxes for the plants I bought for the childrens teachers and came up with this, it took 5 minutes to make, no adhesive, no cutting and best of all it shows up the reverse side of the paper too, so I ended up making 3.

Stamps~ Fresh Cuts Sentiment
Punches~ Large Oval, Scallop Oval

Tart and Tangy Ice Lolly Invitations

Its my son's 5th birthday soon so I decided to make these simple but oh so cute invitations for his classmates, he can't wait to bring them in to nursery. There are 26 of them in all but they were so quick and rewarding to make. I got the little lolly sticks from e bay for pennies and everything else is from Stampin'Up, oh there is one ribbon that isn't from Stampin'Up due to running out but only had to make two of the lollys with that and thats the coloured spotty one.

Pocket Silhouettes ~ Thanks So Much

A close up of the card
This is a simple little card, tag and envelope using the 'Pocket Silhouettes' stamp set, in order to line up the images at the bottom of the designer paper I have used a Stamp-a-ma-jig, what a fantastic invention, I don't know what I did without it, this tool lets me put my image exactly where it is needed, it is especially good when your trying to put an image close beside a sentiment as I have done on my card.
I am entering this card into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge.
