Back To School Teacher Gifts

These are some quick gifts my daughter and I made for her to give to her teachers for back to school.  These were my first matchboxes and they were easy to make!!  Sorry for the shadows, I don't have a light tent yet.

Stampin’ Up! Build-A-Bear Contest

Stampin’ Up!© has partnered with Build-A-Bear to bring you a whole new line of stamps and dies! When you get your Holiday Mini catalog in the mail soon (If you don’t get one, just e-mail me for your copy of the Holiday Mini catalog at you’ll see new stamps, paper, accessories and new Big Shot dies. Adorable!!!

In honor of the BAB partnership, Stampin' Up! had special BAB’s available at convention. Isn’t it cute? It comes with an exclusive “Life Without Stamps… UNBEARABLE” stamp and black Stampin’ Up! demonstrator apron. You could only get this teddy bear if you were at convention, but thanks to some pretty mad negotiating skills Stampin Addicts was able to acquire a couple of these bears to give away. So to celebrate the Sept 1. release of the Holiday Mini catalog and the Build-A-Bear Workshop collection they’re putting one of these bears up for adoption. So run on over to Stampin Addicts (the link is on the top left of the sidebar), join the forums and upload some cards for your chance to win the cutest Build-A-Bear teddy bear.

Pink & Brown Birthday Card

Here is a birthday card that my daughter and I made for her friend's birthday party. You can see the inside a little in the second picture, I made the sentiment so that the gift card would slide behind it. The main image on the front is popped up with dimensionals under the Close To Cocoa layer and also under the image layer, which was stamped on shimmery white cardstock.
