Hello Teacher!

My crafty friend, Michelle, has been showing off some fun Teacher Appreciation projects and she has gotten me in the mood. I wanted to put together a quick box using the Kawaii Apple from SVG Cutting Files since it is my day to share over there!

I wanted to keep it simple so that making several of these would be a breeze.


The Kawaii Apple can be found under the freebie tab at the SVG Cutting Files Store. If you have never looked at this page of freebies, you are surely missing out. Ann is one of the most generous people I have worked with and this page is just a sampling of her big heart!

SVG Cutting Files
The paper is from Doodlebug Design and the cardstock is Papertrey Ink.

I can't wait to see all your Teacher Appreciation Gifts!

Blessings,

Wishing You! Jaded Blossom April Release Day 5!

It is Day 5 of the Jaded Blossom April Release.

Everything will be available in the store tonight at 4 PM PST. We will also have a release blog hop that will start at the same time. But before all that fun gets underway, we have our last sneak peek to share with you this morning, Origami Fun, and this month's freebie, Special Birthday!

I used both, along with some of other JB goodies to make this tag on this treat!


I also used the Luggage Tag Die, new So Many Birthdays 3, and new Party Pants. The patterned paper and enamel dots are from Doodlebug Design. I used a small bit of twine from The Twinery as well.

This was made for a young man who my family has been trying to encourage for a few months now. His birthday was yesterday and we were excited to celebrate with him!

Hope you will stop by the Jaded Blossom Blog to see all the fun the design team has been having with the new Origami Fun stamp set!

Blessings,

You're A-maze-ing! Jaded Blossom April Release Day 4!

Sharing another Amazing stamp set today for the Jaded Blossom April Release Day 4 Reveal!

This one is called A-maze Me!


For those of you who don't know, I am a librarian at one of our local high schools and I decided to make some fun little gifts to give to my teenage library aides. I found these fun smiley face mazes at Party City. I used the Wine Tag Die to make my tag. I embossed the maze on the background and then added my sentiment using the Card Mat Dies and School Dies. I also added a smiley face from Social Candies! To finish it off, I added a banner from this month's new Banner Dies. I know the kids will love them. Teens are like any other kid - they just want some to notice them and appreciate them! That is the true gift in giving them something like this!


Sometimes people ask how we close our treat bags up when making Jaded Blossom projects, so I thought I'd share how I did this one. I stapled the top of the treat bag to the black cardstock to close the top of the bag and attach it to the tag. I then attached the red background piece to the front of the black layer, but only along the top. This allowed the red piece to cover my staples but still adds more dimension to the tag. 

The papers are from Doodlebug Design and Echo Park and the black cardstock is Papertrey Ink.

I hope you have been enjoying the projects this week, and, of course, my teamies have some more Amazing projects to share with you. Head on over to the Jaded Blossom blog to check them out!

Blessings,

I love line sentiments and was so excited to see a couple of them on the new So Many Birthdays 3 stamp set. I knew they would be perfect to add some great detail to a background paper. I dug through my stash and decided to use some paper from Authentique's Sweetness collection. This is perfect birthday paper!!!

It's April Release time at Jaded Blossom.

There are so many fun projects today, so I hope you will head over to the Jaded Blossom Blog after scrolling down my post here.

We are showing off the new Banner Dies, the new Cinco De Mayo stamps, and the new Be a Pinata stamps!


I have used the Banner Dies and two sentiments from Cinco De Mayo for today's sneak. To make my topper for my package of maracas, I also used Rectangle Dies 2 and Scallop Rectangle Dies 2.


On the card, I used the largest die from the Card Mat Dies to cut my background.

I used the International Beauty Mexico and Kawaii Pals Fairy from Treasure Box Designs to piece together my SVG file. All the paper is from Doodlebug Design. I used several collections. I love how their colors coordinate across all their collections. You can find some Doodlebug Design in the Jaded Blossom Store under the Fun Extras section. And the cardstock I used for my card base and the Scallop Rectangle Topper is from Papertrey Ink. They have fantastic cardstock! I heat embossed both of my sentiments.

Praise the Lord!

Happy April, Crafty Friends!

I don't know about you, but I am enjoying the visions of spring that are popping up all around us! In my neck of the woods, the trees are beginning to green and flowers are blooming everywhere! It is a beautiful time!

Today, I am sharing on the Jaded Blossom Blog, and want to share this card with you here on my blog as well! Easter can be so fun with its spring chicks and cute bunnies, but it is also a time to Praise the Lord for all that He has done. It is a time to remember His resurrection and praise Him for conquering both sin and the grave!


I have had a song stuck in my head for a couple of days now and one of the lines goes - Praise the Lord all my soul and worship His holy name. So, of course, this sentiment seemed appropriate. And though I was not thinking about it when I was making this card; today,April 4th, was on an Easter Sunday 18 years ago and the day I became a Christian. I am praising the Lord today and rejoicing in His faithfulness and I hope you have reason to Praise Him as well!


I used Card Mat Dies and the Rejoice stamp set from Jaded Blossom on this sweet card. 

The shepherd and his sheep is from a Nativity set by My Scrap Chick. The background paper is from my scrap stash of paper so I don't remember the which company it is from. The card base is Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is heat embossed using Zing embossing powder and a Versamark stamp pad.

Thank you for dropping by!

Blessings,

I also used the Scallop Oval Dies and the Stitched Oval Dies from Jaded Blossom.

Wedding Cupcake Toppers!

Happy Tuesday!!! Today is my day to share on the Jaded Blossom Blog.

So a couple of weeks back, a friend for mine asked me to help her out with some cupcake toppers to decorate for her son's and his bride's wedding shower. Well since her son has been one of my favorite people since he was about 5 years old, I just couldn't say no. I knew I would have something in my Jaded Blossom stash that would be perfect!


My friend let me know that the wedding colors are gold and pink so this is what I came up with. I used the Stitched Circle Dies and embossed on the circles either a heart from Heart Splatters or the "love you" sentiment from Cupid Airlines using gold Zing embossing powder. The scallop circle is a freebie from SVG Cuts. Below is a picture I was able to snap at the shower with my phone. Not the best picture, but still shows how cute they are!


We attached them to toothpicks to insert them ineo the cupcake. The "love you" sentiment is one of my all time sentiments from Jaded Blossom. I just love the font!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings,

May Flowers! Day 5 of the Jaded Blossom March Release!

Today is the day - the Jaded Blossom March Release happens at 4 PM PST. But this morning we have one more stamp set and the freebie to reveal.

Today's sets are Wild and Free and this month's freebie, May Flowers!

For my card, I have used the May Flowers freebie stamp:


I used the Card Mat Dies and Scallop Rectangle Dies 2 to frame my stamp. I used Doodlebug's Rainbow Petite Prints for the paper. The base if Kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink and I colored my stamp with Prismacolor colored pencils. This will make a fun card to give on May 1 along with bouquet of flowers for May Day.

I hope you will stop by the Jaded Blossom blog to see what everyone else has made with today's reveal stamps. And then I hope you will be back here tonight for the Release Blog Hop that starts at 4 PM PST. And remember that is when this month's stamps go live in the Jaded Blossom store.

Spring Cleaning! Day 4 of the Jaded Blossom March Release!

March Release with Jaded Blossom is at Day 4 and today we are sharing Cleaning Icons and Spring Cleaning. I used them both, along with the Goody Bag Die and Kawaii Cleaning, to come up with a fun way to encourage my children to do a few extra chores during Spring Break.


I am going to be using these 3 bags and a few more that I will be making to allow my kids to earn some extra money. The plan is to fill each bag with some candies along with a dollar amount. The catch is that the kiddos won't know how much each chore is worth. The bag will be glued sealed at the top and then of course still decorated with the fun twine. I am going to set the bags out and they can choose to a bag if they are willing to do a chore. Once the chore is done, then they can have the bag with all it contents. It will be interesting to see which of the three will want the money and which would rather just make Spring Break a break!!! LOL! I am hoping they will take the chores so I can have the break! But if not, I guess I will do the chores and keep the money for crafting supplies!

The release will go live this Friday at 4 PM PST. 

Here is a sneak peek at today's stamp sets:





Stop by the Jaded Blossom blog to see lots of fun projects using these two sets and I will see you back here tomorrow for the Day 5 sneak in the morning and the Release Blog Hop at 4 PM PST.

Blessings,
