Simply the Best....

I wanted to make a little something for Addie's Sunday School Teachers for her last day in their class and this is what I came up with and I wanted to share it with you. I had some pink buckets from the dollar bin at target just laying around and this is one of my favorite sets using the flower builder punch. These were a perfect goodbye treat for her teachers.
I stuffed the bag full of kisses and tied it with some pretty ribbon.

Something that I thought was a cute addition to the velumn bags is using the embossing plates with them, you can use with the chevron, stripes and ofcourse the spiderweb!
These are so cute!!

Hoot Hoot!

I saw this card on Split Coast Stampers and thought it was cute..what made it cuter was using the wood grain embossing plate for the big shot...to bad I didn't have that, but this shows you that you can make the same card even if you dont have the same products!

This is using the new Owl Occassions set in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

12 Days of Back to School {Day 12}

Day 12-Lets get Digital

So I wanted to share these with you, while they may not seem like much this is why I love Stampin Up...Using MDS I created these labels that we will be using on our notebooks. The great thing about MDS is that you can create things like this with ease and if you are a teacher you know this stuff comes in handy. I love being able to create things on my digital studio that are super simple and functional. I printed them out, cut the paper in half and glued it to the front of each notebook. So simple and it didn't take very long. Give MDS a free try with a 30 day trial ... check out my website for more information www.michellerabon.stampinup.net

12 Days of Back to School {Day 11}

{Day 11}- First Day of Class Cards
 I used all the scraps that I had left over from my projects over the last 12 days and wanted to make some cards to give to friends that are teachers and headed back to school. There is always a use for the scraps you have laying around. If nothing else they can make a beautiful card!
Here is a tip....Don't have a stamp that says what you want?
Print it out on your computer, you can find great free fonts online and it would be the perfect touch to your cards.

Day 10-Inside the box
There are so many different ways that you can package a cute teacher gifts and these little boxes from Stampin Up are perfect! I cover the mini notepad and wrapped up some pencils to match, a very simple first day of school gift for anyone!

Happy Stamping!

Fabric Fun

I found this cute M in the dollar section at target, I am sure that you are noticing a trend...I do love the target dollar section! I wrapped the M in Twitterpated fabric from Stampin Up and it really brought it to life!!

 I added the flower rossettes (Video to come later this week) using a new product from Stampin Up called the Sticky Rounds (127852 $4.95)
This project is so simple and easy, one that you could do at a class/workshop or just make and give as a gift!
