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 :) )

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
