Another Teacher Gift

My neighbor is a substitute teacher and wanted to get her name out to the school teachers so when they need a sub they can call her. (You can find the pattern to these boxes on Nancy Morgan’s website HERE.) She was going to hand out business cards, but I suggested something a little more memorable (and CHOCOLATEY) so they would remember her.

I came up with this design to look “schoolish”. The back of the box has a piece of square cardstock with my friend’s info on it.

This card was totally inspired/cased from my stamping buddy, Nancy Riley. Her card can be found on her blog iSTAMP, which is HERE. I have always loved this design (SCS Sketch Challenge 187). I will be sad to see this paper retiring soon….

Tart and Tangy Gift


I know, some of you are thinking, “if that girl uses Tart and Tangy one more time, I am going to throw up!” I’m sorry, I just can’t help it, I LOVE this set! My great friend’s daughter turned 10 this year. She is a CHERRY-O-HOLIC! So I couldn’t help but use this stamp set to create a gift for her. A few weeks before her birthday, her mom sent me this picture of her eating a cherry. She had no idea what I was brewing for her birthday, so HOW FITTING that it worked into my gift! LOL The cherry goodies were found at JoAnn’s. They are in the dollar bin. They are really nice plastic covered notebooks with cherries all over them. Pencils, coasters (some coasters have gingham like the one above, some have cherries over them), glass cleaner cloth, coupon book, LOTS of stuff!! Wish I would have found these during the Tart and Tangy promotion!! I also included in the gift some socks with cherries all over them (found those at Walgreens!) and Walgreens also carries cherry-shaped gummy candies, that look IDENTICAL to the cherry stamp (stemp and all!) I get a little carried away with theme gifts…..this was so fun to put together!
