Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

Happy Turkey Day! Welcome to my neglected blog. I thought I would play along with the November Blog Hop. This month's challenge was to create tags using PTI's fabulous products and supplies.

The smaller tag on the left features images from the Banner Builder set. I used the polka dot triangle to create the tree and used the star image from the same set to put a star on top of the tree. The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #8 stamped in black ink. The patterned paper is from the Sugar Plum collection. I finished the tag off with a bit of red and white polka dot ribbon and a Spring Rain button tied with Vintage Cream button twine.

The snowflake tag on the right highlights images from 2010 Holiday Tags and Peace Be Still. The dies are Limitless Layers and Peace Be Still. The patterned paper is from Christmas Prints collection and the snowflack is topped with a Pure Poppy button tied with Vintage Cream twine.

That's all I could come up with admist Turkey Day festivities. Thanks for stopping by!

Teacher Appreciation

Just wanted to share a little card that I made for Paige and Sophie's teachers in honor of teacher appreciation week. In typical Katie fashion, the cards and gifts were not actually delivered to the recipients until the Monday following Teacher Week. It's the thought that counts, right?

The cards accompanied clear buckets that I decorated with patterned paper and prima flowers. I chose buckets because Paige's Kindergarten class has been focusing on the concept of bucket-filling (and I had buckets in my stash of packaging...) The buckets were filled with a cute little notepad, chocolates, and a Panera gift card. They were easy to put together and the teachers appreciated that Paige filled their buckets with all kinds of goodies. Sorry I don't have a picture of the buckets- next time I will try to remember to take one!

  • Cardstock: Pink Pirouette (Stampin Up), Dark Chocolate and White (Papertrey Ink)
