Crafty Projects

Good Monday Morning!
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I spent most of mine cleaning up after Chloe...lol
Ok so I did get some stamping in...actually quite a bit....
I've been wanting to do this Stationery Box by Jackie Topa at Addicting To Stamping for a few days and finally got to sit down last evening and work on it. I grabbed some of my least favourite SU! DP to start. Don't you do that? Use something you won't freak out about if you wreck it trying to put it together for the first time?
Be sure to check out Jackie's Blog she has so many fabulous projects there!
This is the inside. In it you will find: 2 cards and envelopes, 2 little 3x3 cards and envelopes, 2 gift tags, notepad, place for your stamps and a pen.
Isn't this a cute little set?!!
Today we have our Staff Appreciation Luncheon at the school. The BPA orders lunch in for all the teachers and support staff. It's a thank you to them for all their hard work throughout the school year. I wanted to thank them with a little gift as well. These magnets are totally inspired and CASED from Julee at Poetic Artistry. You can see hers HERE. Thanks Julee for the inspiration!!
Hope the teachers like them.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Those magnets will be apprecited by the teachers (I'm one and would love to receive this). And that box is fabulous! I totally understand about using dp you won't be upset about messing up...I've done that many times, but have been surprisingly pleased with the end product! TFS!
