Thank you teacher!

I can't believe we're 2 weeks into the school holidays already! We've been making the most of this gorgeous weather and have had the pool out this week which the kids have loved & I even managed to read an entire book in the garden!
When my son goes back to school in September he will have a new teacher, so he sadly had to say goodbye to his lovely teacher and teaching assistant at the end of term. Of course, I had to make them both a card :) Inspired by the lovely gift box made by Lynne at the Stampin' Up training recently, I also decided to make a small gift bag to hold a little pressie. The finished results ...

Now let's take a peeky inside ...

... an "A+ teacher" keyring and some Thorntons choccys. Yummy :)

My son's teacher is called Miss Rose, so I just had to include a rolled rose on her card. Here's a close up ...

Supplies used:
Cardstock - Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight
Designer Series Papers - Sunny Garden, Springtime Vintage
Stamps - Baby blossoms, sentiment from Just Believe
Ink pads - Baja Breeze, Daffodil delight
Ribbons - Seam binding in Baja Breeze, Taffeta ribbon in Whisper white
Punch - Modern Label

Now, have you seen the flashing Pink Lady blinkie at the top of my blog? How cool is that?! I'm a member of the Pink Ladies/Lads Stampin' Up team run by Michelle Last. If you have ever considered becoming an Independent Stampin' up demonstrator, now is a fantastic time to join up ... you will have until December to achieve your quarterly target, a chance to buy from the last chance product list of discounted Stampin' Up products that runs throughout September and the launch of the new catalogue in October. And only independent demonstrators get a sneak preview of the new catalogue in September and are able to pre-order from it. If you would like to become a demonstrator, or host your own Stampin' Up party, where I come and demonstrate lots of lovely Stampin' Up goodies, then please contact me at

Thank you for stopping by & take care x


  1. Tamara, that is a beautiful gift set. Mrs Rose is a very lucky teacher. Unfortunately there are some more papers and card stock I want from SU now! lol Kx

  2. Lol Karen! Thank you ... & sorry! I'm not sure whether the designer papers will carry over into the new catalogue in October. The last chance list comes out in a couple of days, so I'll let you know!
