Teacher Appreciation Gifts with Trendy Twine

 I am excited to share with you a quick and easy project made with beautiful Trendy Twine!

I have 45 teacher gifts to make for a junior high school. I started off with some chocolates from Purdy's Chocolatier and created vellum tags then heat embossed the sentiment. I used eyelets to finish off the sides and then put it all together with Gray Licorice twine from Annie's Paper Boutique!

This twine has been so perfect for so many year end gifts and is great for graduation touches!

I used Teacher Appreciation (Revamp) and Mini Tag Dies 2 from Jaded Blossom for the tag :)

Thank you so much for allowing me the privilege to guest design! It's been so much fun!

Until next time friends,

Guest Designer Trendy Twine - Planner Layout

Good morning Trendy friends! I am so excited to be a guest designer again for Trendy Twine!

I have become a big planner fan. And every week I love to work on my layouts.
So today, I decided to share this weeks layout with you.

This week's layout is full of Annie's Paper Boutique planner stamps.
They are fantastic little stamps that still leave lots of room for your own personal writing and touches.

I love adding a touch of twine to my pages... and the Trendy dots... They are just the perfect touch of fun! I use a Happy Planner, so I cut my dots in half and I get two full layouts with each strip of dots!

For today's project here is a list of all the goodies I used :
I used CDD for all of my planner die cuts! They are PERFECT!!

Thanks so much for taking a peak at my project today!

For My Friend

I have a coworker who is moving on to greater opportunities... Sad for me, wonderful for her.
We clicked very quickly & she instantly became my friend.
As this is her last week with us, I wanted to be sure to give her a gift from my heart. 
Of course gifts from my heart are always handmade :) 
 (I might (will) include some homemade chocolate chip cookies too)

Jaded Blossom Valentine Challenge

I am heading off to Band Camp tomorrow for a couple days of fun! As I will be out there with over 80 grade 7 & 8 students on Valentines Day, I knew I would have to make treat bags for them all! 
As Jaded Blossom decided to throw a challenge out there, I knew I'd have to enter with these 90, yes 90 treat bags. We can't have the little ones who live at the camp be left out either!

I bought little zip bags from Dollarama for the candy. Filled them with a few each and topped it off with some Jaded Blossom goodies!

Fancy Treat Topper Die
Simple Sayings Valentine Edition
Tic Tac Toe (the sketched heart)

Thanks for popping by today!
Enjoy your Valentine's tomorrow!
