Gifts for Teaching Friends

I got busy on the weekend and started putting together some gifts for Christmas. I am going the handmade and up cycle this Christmas rather than purchase even more crap from the shops that people don't want.
To make these I
-used a Kaiser craft wooden off the page book
-I took the five wooden pages and painted them up pink with a white paint wash
-I added some paper to size on the front
-The strip of paper I only glued at the back so that the postit pads could be replaced by just sliding the last couple of pages through.
-I stamped the names using an amazing script stamp set I purchased from Simon Says Stamp
-Added ribbon bow to the top and some bling strips from the $2 store

Wallah!! terrific gift for a teacher!

My Favourite Things

I love the MFT range. I only wish that someone would stock it properly here in Australia. They had an awesome sale a few weeks back with 50% off ..couldn't resist and went ahead to add yet some more to the hoard LOL!! expect some videos in the coming weeks as I use all these great new products that I managed to get my hands on. This box cost me about $115 AUS which I thought was amazing!

Crafty Parcel

I can not believe that I was one of the lucky ones to get my hands on a Simon Says Stamp Crafty Parcel during the Black Friday Sales. I had huge problems finding the link on the store site but someone posted it on face book and I was onto it like Flynn and managed to nail not one but two lots of Christmas goodies for friends!! I knew it was coming up and I really wanted to see what you could expect from one of these but I couldn't find one on you tube ... so I made my own video to show you all for next time...I have heard that they do a boxing day crafty parcel..not sure how true but probably worth checking it out!!!. Here's my video in any case :)
Each box cost $49.95 US with $45 postage (they were really heavy) but even at $99 each they were well worth it!
