Lots of Gift Card Holders!

My son has had the best teachers this year, and I wanted to give each of them something to show our appreciation.  I pulled out the My Creative Time Embossed Gift Card Holder Die and got busy.  For the sentiment going across the top of each one, I used MCT's More Gift Card Sentiments.

For the first three cards, I used Papertrey Ink's Flipping Out to make my cute flip-flops.  The "Enjoy your vacation!" sentiment is also from this set.  The woodgrain and yellow heart paper are from Simple Stories I {HEART} SUMMER and the yellow polka dots is Bo Bunny.

Since I was using a brown grid background paper from Echo Park for this one, I stamped my sentiment on a banner made with a die from MCT's Just Simply Live.  The pretty aqua polka dot paper is from PTI's Library Ledger.

This one was inspired by the card I posted yesterday.  How easy to cut a strip of Simple Stories paper and pop on a coordinating layered sticker?

And lastly, for the two male teachers, I used the same elements that I used for my brother's birthday tag earlier this week:  PTI's Seeing Stars die and stamps from Pedal Pushers, Super Stars, and Grunge Me.  I accidentally stamped the "Thank You" to high, but adding a curved stitched line from MCT's Gift Card Sentiments evened it out and created a fun look!

Inside each one is a Peet's gift card.  I have to say, I think I use my Embossed Gift Card Holder Die more than any other die that I own!  So easy!!!

Just keep on pedaling...

A family friend was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and went through a double mastectomy last week.  I thought a bright card might cheer her up.  The adorable bicycle was made with Papertrey Ink's Pedal Pusher stamps and dies.  I thought it would look cute on a strip of patterned paper, but it wasn't until I put it together that I realized how cool the diagonal striped paper from Simple Stories I {HEART} SUMMER looked.  It makes me think of a rainbow sidewalk!  The layered pinwheel sticker is also from I {HEART} SUMMER.  I am in love with this collection, and you will be seeing a lot of it in the near future.  You can click on the product links below to get it from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  I love her super fast shipping!

The sentiment is also from Pedal Pushers.  I thought it was perfect for somebody with a long road of treatment ahead of her.  Hopefully this will make her smile!

MCT 3-D Wednesday

It's another 3-D Wednesday with My Creative Time, and I've got a really fun project for you!  This was a little birthday gift for a friend at school.  To make my adorable suitcase, I used a cut file by Lori Whitlock that I found in the Silhouette Online Store.  Isn't it the cutest?  I added a key and a little tag made with My Creative Time's Chunky Jar Accessories stamp and die set, tied to the suitcase with some Thin Kraft Hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

Here's a look at the inside.  It's filled with some yummy dark chocolate!

I made a coordinating 3x3 card using the new MCT Birthday Buddies stamp set and had some fun coloring the images with my Copic markers.
