It’s “Mice” to Meet You ~ Teacher Card

I love play on word creations for various occasions; puns that use words in place of common words that have a theme or different meaning. While I was scrolling through my cartridges on Cricut Design Space I spotted that little mouse from Create a Critter cartridge. I think he is adorable and the idea of "mice" to meet you popped in my head. I hope you think so too. During a recent trip … [Read more...]

Gifts from the heart are so much more special than any old thing I could pick up at the store so one of my favorite things to do is create these types of crafts.

{Back to School} Let’s Roll into School Teacher Gift with Tag Printable

This is still one of my favorite "Meet the Teacher" night gifts I ever created for one of Spencer's teachers. I really like to personalize my gifts so that they can keep them for years to come.   Each side is decorated in a school themed image.  I love "play on words" so I created the Let's Roll into School tag because I was filling the jar with Tootsie Rolls.  ☺ I found this square … [Read more...]
