Anchor Bracelet Teacher Gift

I recently made and packaged a couple dozen of these bracelets for our Sunday school teachers and was really pleased with the results. I hope you enjoy and find inspiration for those year end teacher gifts that we're all starting to think about.

I printed the packaging tags from my Silhouette Design Studio software with the exception of the hand stamped sentiment from Neat & Tangled. 

A side view of the packaged bracelet.

Three packaging strips per 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of Kraft cardstock, scored at 5.25" and 5.75".

After scoring, cut each packaging strip approximately 2.5" wide (doesn't have to be exact).

YNS Feature Day - 'SEAS' the day!

I'm having a blast guesting with Your Next Stamp this month and have a fun little seaside card for today's Feature Day Challenge. This month's challenge is to CASE another YNS Design Team member, and I chose Thanh's adorable card that you can see HERE.

As you can 'sea', I've once again employed 2 of my favorites: ink smooshing and a nautical look. I've also fallen in love with Gumdrops (enamel dots) available at YNS, and they've got just about every color under the rainbow!

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team over at the YNS Blog and find out how you can win a stamp set of your choice!

Lawn Fawn - I'm Stuck on You

Boy was I ever surprised when I found this adorable set from Lawn Fawn that somehow got tucked between a few other things in my craft room! I'm thinking my husband would love to give this to me for our anniversary next month, so I'll tuck it away for him to somehow find. Sometimes you just gotta create/conspire your own destiny, folks.

After stamping the two cute cacti from Stuck on You, I used Copic markers to add a rocky ground base and a little color depth to each of the cacti. Wanting to really make that bright pink heart pop, I added a layer of Glossy Accents to it.

YNS Sketch Challenge #14 - Nerdy Inspiration

Happy Friday! I hope you're all looking forward to the weekend as much as I am with not much on the agenda except a little fun and relaxation after the chores are done. 

Speaking of fun, how about a new sketch from Your Next Stamp to get the weekend off on the right foot?  The great news - you'll have plenty of time to play along because the sketch runs for two weeks, so put it on your to-do list!

He's so darn cute and innocent I just want to smooch him, don't you?! Head on over to the YNS Blog for more smoochy cuteness and I'll see you later, gator(s). Have a great weekend!
