Scripts Tag Sale

I have been going through all the older Scripts kits and some of the VERY cool things that never made it into a kit!! Wow, there is quite a few AWESOME things left!
I decided to stop Scripts back in the Spring. There were a lot of reasons behind it. Mostly just too much time and too little money!
We are selling our house and I have been cleaning out the closets! I have a ridiculous amount of you probably can relate!!

I have put together a kit that will include a 12x12 American Crafts album. I only have a few of these kits. I'm sure they will go really fast! I have a picture of the entire kit. Everything you see will be included. Most items are from CHA winter 2010. I am confident that you can finish a complete album with this product and have so much left over!! I do have a few "extra" things that will be included, too!

This kit would retail for over $150.00!!!
I am offering it to you for $80.00......

This kit will be shipping next week.
I have everything in stock and will box it up as soon as it's paid for!

Email me with your order and I will send you an invoice through Paypal. As usual, email with any questions!!

thank so much!

It's that time of year

School is almost over - we have two more weeks. My son's elementary school doesn't really do anything big for Teacher Appreciation, which I think stinks. I know they had a duty free lunch one day - meaning they get to eat out of the cafeteria and someone else watches the kids. But that's it. At least, that's all I know of. The past two schools he's attended had great plans for the week of teacher appreciation with themes each day and just fun for the teachers.

Since our school doesn't do a big deal, I just let it slide, planning on really kicking it up for the end of the year party. Our party is Friday and I've got one gift almost finished!! I've got to get on the ball! Here are some ideas that I really love and hopefully will try a few:

Crayon Monogram:

I would love to do this and have a stockpile of crayons, so I think it's doable! I've seen it with colored pencils, too - which is a great look, but I think I can cut crayons easier than the pencils.

The coolest clipboard ever:

Now, I've done a few altered clipboards in my day (every teacher has gotten at least one) but this one is so cool - with the cork and the clothes pins, and post its - you can't go wrong! I may try this for sure.

This one may be my favorite - a box of teacher goodies:

and check out the inside:

I just love this - I'm really going to try to remember to look at supplies for more of these, once school's back in and supplies get clearanced. But for now, I'll scope out some less expensive places and see what I can find - I'm a frugal girl, ya know!!

So, what are you doing for end of the year gifts?

My boy!

My son is now at the end of second grade, and I wanted to record some facts about him on a layout. The picture I used is perfect- it is his spring school picture, but he also has on an armful of animal bracelets. He has been ALL about them this year! He has too many to count, and spends any money he gets on them. He also loves his dad, paper airplanes, reading and the trampoline. I hope he looks back on this page one day and is reminded of what a cool second grader he was!

The April kit came along just in time.............

for this sweet picture of my new niece!

As soon as I dug into my kit, I was thinking about the baby pictures I would have soon of a sweet little baby girl. Seriously, as soon as I snapped this picture, I knew it would be the one I wanted to use on a layout. This came together really quickly and easily - I actually just did this during a break at school, while subbing. The kids were at P.E. so I spread out my stuff and got to work!

I used the Glimmer Mist on the letters to take away a bit of the iridescence and tone them down a bit. First I used a number 9 to test on, since there were enough 6's in case I needed a 9 at some point. I didn't think it was enough coverage so when I pulled my letters off for my title, I placed them on a paper towel and sprayed. Once they were dry, I sprayed a second coat to get a darker shade. They were perfect in the end!! I added the dangling charm from a previous kit, everything else is April's!!

Thanks for looking!
What did you do with your April kit?

Another layout to share

This layout is from the March kit. Cole had a field trip to the McWane Science Center and I got to go along. I took a million pictures of course - these are the highlights:

Thanks for looking!

Cards for Mom

Mother's day is around the corner, so I need to get some cards in the mail! I made these two this afternoon, and plan to make a few more for some other ladies in my life who aren't my mom, but hold a special place in my heart. I crinkled the cream ribbon up on doubled sided tape to add texture on the card on the left, and used a stamp pad on the white glitter thickers on the card on the right.
