Teacher Appreciation

At one time I thought that I wanted to be 
a school teacher...seems to be a lot of little girls' dreams, right?
I started out my first year of college with the 'basic' courses 
geared towards an education degree.  Quickly I learned that I 
didn't think this was the route for me career-wise!  And since I have been
a substitute teacher and school nurse I know that I made the right decision LOL
So, kudos to all of those wonderful teachers out really deserve it!
To celebrate the ending of another school year, 
 is recognizing educators with
For my project, I went straight to SVG Cuts and grabbed
a file for the sweetest apple container.

  For the inner part of the container, I used one of the
HELLO CUPCAKE papers with the blue/white polka dots on the back.
For the stem, also a paper from HELLO CUPCAKE.
The stars were punched from the sunny print from MAKIN' WAVES.

I also used the star punch to create the dove-tails on the ends of the banner strips.
And what would an Imaginisce creation be without a Brad Daddy?
I dressed up a medium brad with a scrap of gingham fabric.
After assembling, I trimmed out the apple shape (front only) with
Maraschino Baker's Twine by The Twinery :)

And have you heard the word?
Imaginisce is only a few hundred LIKES away from 10,000!
If you don't all ready 'like' Imaginisce on Facebook, then please come by
simply click "like"...once we reach 10,000, we're gonna have a par-tay!
Tons of goodies and prizes to be had!

That's all for today...later y'all!


  1. This is so cool. I really should do that as well. (and would love it if my students gave me something like that!)

  2. Wow...this is just amazing! What a great idea this is for a teacher gift!

  3. I'm always amazed at such creativity. You're a great artist, and a source of inspiration. I live in Brazil-Sao Paulo-and I have so many materials available. I have some materials, but always very expensive. I have to turn all the details with my creativity. I would like you to visit my blog. HUGS

  4. What a great gift!! Love love love it! (and now I really want a Cameo or Sizzix :) )

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
