Schoolhouse Book GIft Set!

Get ready for Back to School with this fun and festive gift set for your favorite teacher and/or friend! You’ll make a Faux Book, with a secret slide out drawer that holds a stack of note cards. The inside of the book holds a special message as well! You’ll also make a simply Covered Pen, to smoothly write out all those little note cards. The Treat Bag is a perfect way to show off a sweetly wrapped snack – and you’ll learn the exact measurements to neatly fill out our Gusseted Cellophane Bags. And, finally, the simple but sweet card tops it all off as the complete gift!

Birthday in the Barnyard!

This Birthday in the Barnyard party set is perfect for the birthday celebration of your darling little girl.  This set features the Barnyard Babies Stamp Set... with the support of sentiments from the Something to Say and A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Sets.  Also highlighted are Farmers Market Designer Series Paper and Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack…in combination with bright, fun Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry Cardstock.  Gold Metallic Doilies and Gold Embossing provide a lovely bit of sparkle to this ensemble, and baker’s twine provides just the right amount of country feel.  This party set includes a 3-1/2” x 5” party invitation, a barn shaped thank you party favor, a cupcake pick, a milk bottle medallion and a party banner.  And…there’s a bonus!  This set is also incredibly versatile in that, with a small color change it would be a fabulous foundation for the birthday celebration of any handsome little guy.  And there’s more…a simple sentiment switch on a couple of the pieces would easily convert this party set to the perfect background for a baby shower…for a boy or a girl!

Butterfly Greeting Card Set & Caddy!

Make this feminine greeting card set with a matching caddy that will hold your cards and envelopes. The caddy is easy to make and can be refilled with other stationery items later. It is also a pretty décor item on any desks. Make four greeting cards to go in the caddy, using the same butterfly embellishments and lay-outs, but with different background techniques that will come handy for future craft projects. Great for a stamp camp, or as a class project.
