I needed to make 3 thank you cards for my son to give to his teachers- one for his classteacher, one for the PPA teacher who teaches him french and one for the classroom support. I was pushed for time because I also had a few other projects that I needed to make. For this reason I kept it simple and went for some purple gingham printed card that I had in my stash and I knew I had the purple pearlised card for matting and the silver mirri. The image is such a handy little bunch of flowers and so easy to colour quickly with my promarkers. I computer generated the greeting for each teacher for that personal touch and used my nesties to cut them- it is so easy to make multiple mounts with them in no time. I tend to use them with my old Sizzix Sidekick and an adapter for speed when I'm only using the small nesties.
I got each teacher one of the little citronella candle holders you can see quite a while ago because I saw them on offer! I wrapped them in tissue and celophane bundles and used curling ribbon to decorate.
I am entering these for the My time to Craft challenge as they have 'Check it out'- use checks on your project.
Hi, I'm Alison, known as Tillymint to my Mum and Dad- hence the name of my blog! I've always enjoyed anything creative. I have been making cards for a few years now and have recently started crocheting. I live in West Yorkshire, England, with my husband, our 10 year old son and our puppy, Bryn. I love sharing my creations and hearing what you think, so please leave a comment!
Sorry to sound like the teacher that I am! But... copying isn't fair.
I love sharing my cards with you and reading your comments. I am happy for you to take inspiration from them but please do not directly copy them or claim them as your own work.
I created the background, header and post dividers for this blog myself, using free papers and elements downloaded from the Stuff to Scrap April Blog Train, called 'Spring Picnic'. Thank you to all the designers who contributed mini kits to this.
Free digi papers..
Summer designs wonderful digi scrapping kits and then gives them away! (So long as they are only used for personal use.)
