Gift Set for Grandma!!

This was so much fun to put together! My Grandmother is in a retirement apartment complex now (we just celebrated her 90th birthday - GO GRANDMA!!) and they help each other adjust when a new resident moves in by pairing them up with someone who has been there awhile! Grandma wanted something to give to her new buddy, so this is what I came up with!

The gift bag was made to put all the other items in! The picture frame is magnetic on the back and came from the Target Dollar Spot (a couple years ago) I knew they would come in handy one day!! The notepad is a plain paper writing tablet and YES, I stamped every page with roses!! That took some time! I love the mini totes, there are 4 notecards (3 x 3) with envelopes inside. And last but not least - an altered candle! I'm hoping she doesn't burn it! Not that it can't be, but I know how forgetful older folks can be! I'm thinking of her safety!! But it did turn out pretty, I think!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Stay tuned!!!!

Card Tin Class Coming June 8!!!!

I love making these card tins and make quite a few of them for craft shows! They make great organizers for all your card-giving occasions and make great gifts too! The tin will include 12 monthly dividers with perpetual calendars to make organizing your occasions easier. The class will be held on Sunday, June 8th from 1-5 pm. When you register, you will also need to choose your favorite Designer Series Paper from pages 168-171 of the Spring-Summer Collection or one of the two paper packages in the Occasions Mini catalog and let me know which you'd like to use to decorate your tin!! We will only be using a couple of sheets and you will take the remainder of the package of paper home with you! So call or e-mail me today with your paper choice and reserve your spot for this class! Please pre-pay for this class so that I can order the materials and to reserve your spot! Class size is limited to 8. Class fee is $25.

If you can't attend the class, but would like a tin of your own, they can be purchased through me for $30. But it's more fun to make your own!! You won't want to miss this class!

Happy Stampin'!
