Printable Teacher Card Set


One of my favorite gifts to give teachers is a set of personalized cards.  They can use them as thank you's, notes home, etc.  I made a set last year but ran out of time to make some for the teachers this year.  I decided a printable set would be quick and easy and I could use just print up new ones each year.







I love this natural brown paper and decided to do a few in white and a few in brown.











After printing, cutting and folding I just added some envelopes and a little bit of bakers twine.  And there you go - a quick and easy gift!








If you'd like to print up a set of your own you can get a blank copy HERE and add in your teacher's name.  Or if you don't know how to do that, you can get a generic "just a note" set HERE.  Enjoy!

Quick & Easy Cards with David Tutera's Card System


I love making and sending homemade cards to my friends and family.  We live in an age where most sentiments -- birthdays, anniversaries, etc -- are sent via Facebook or text.  But there is something special about receiving a physical card in the mail from someone.  

I absolutely LOVE this new line by David Tutera.  You can make personal homemade cards in just 3 easy steps. You pick a base, add some layers, and finish with embellishments.




Here are the supplies I used for my Thank You card.  I love that everything is already cut to the perfect size.


  I started with a white base and added a turquoise embossed layer.  For this layer I used a sanding tool on the embossing to add a contrasting color.  This is one of my favorite techniques to use!



Then I added the embellishments and a sentiment and I was done.  Seriously, so easy but still very personal and unique.



I even let my 8 year old daughter try it out.  She made this adorable birthday card for her aunt all on her own.  She was so proud.  :)























Here are a couple more cards I created.  I love that I can whip up a bunch at once and have them ready for when I need to send out a card.  And if I have to make one last minute?  No problem cuz it only takes about 10 minutes to make one.  :)

Pinned It, Tried It: A Couple of Cards

I have found so much card inspiration on Pinterest lately!  I have so many cute cards on my Pinterest card board and since my stash is running low I figured now would be a good time to make some.





The pink and grey combo is what really caught my eye on this card.  I didn't have those colors but used the layout to create my own.  One of these days I'll have to make a pink/grey version for sure!






Here's my version:
 





I love the look of this card and it was a super quick and easy card to make.  I'll even give you the measurements so you can make one, too.  :)



Here's my version: 









Measurements:
card: 4.25"x5.5"
orange: 4"x5.25"
chevron: 3.5"x3"
turquoise: 3.25"x2"

Origami Tie Father's Day Cards


These cards are so fun to make and I think they look adorable!  They are perfect for Father's day and my kids love making them. 

To make the origami ties, you'll need some fun scrapbook paper and THIS tutorial.  It might look intimidating at first, but these are seriously easy!

You can use the origami ties in a number of ways, but I like to make little shirt cards for them to go onto.  Just make one-inch slits at the top of the card and fold down to make the collar.  Then you can embellish it with brads & the tie.  I have a little "dad" stamp I added, too. 

Here are a couple more I've made with the kids:



Here are a few other cute ways to use the origami ties:
