Happy Summer

School's out for summer! My girls had their last day in school today, and are off for six weeks. As usual I wanted to make some gifts for their teachers, but I was way too late and had to do it all yesterday. Well....fortunately I had already one gift bag finished as I made this one some weeks ago for this month's guest post on the Scrapbooks Etc. blog. It's based on a sketch by Valerie Salmon and you can also find it here on the Got Sketch? blog. I used Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer collections which is one of my favorite collections at the moment. The gift bag was filled with chocolates.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw), Papertrey Ink (Stamper's Select White) | Patterned paper: Pink Paislee (Hometown Summer) | Button: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix) | Ribbon, twine: May Arts | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Daily Designs Sentiments) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Felt flowers: Cards & Wishes | Foam dots: Zva Creative (AD01CB101) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Favor It Box 3, Banner Builder Collection, Eyelet Lace Border), MFT Stamps (Die-namics Open Scallop Border), sewing machine

And here's an impression of the other gifts using my iPhone Instagram app early this morning. These gifts were way more simple than the gift bag I made for Fleur's teacher. Simply because I didn't have enough time. I'm such a procrastinator! The Friends to the end label was made for Fleur's BFF. Eva has moved to another village about 20 minutes from our place and she'll go to a new school. I know Fleur will miss her, and I truly hope they'll stay in touch. The label was tied to a large jar filled with candy.



Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Love the little gift bag -- all the patterns and colors... perfect together! Great instagram photo of your gift tag assortment, too. Looks like you really got busy there at the end to get it all done! (And, being a procrastinator myself, I totally understand that!)
