End of School

Today is the last day of pre-school for my daughter, so we decided on a few handmade gifts for her teachers. This one is very simple and so very cute - and very FUNCTIONAL! This is a 4x6 acrylic picture frame. I took the apple from the Tart 'N Tangy set, from the Occasion Mini, and inked it up with my markers in Old Olive and Real Red, huffed the stamp to re-moisten, and randomly stamped it on Whisper White. Don't forget the sets in the Occasion Mini are only available to June 30th - so don't miss out, place your orders soon! Took my sentiment from Simply Said set and stamped it in Basic Black. I cut my Whisper White with apples and mounted it on Old Olive and Real Red. Very teacher-ish background to place in the frame. Finish the frame off with a little ribbon, in this case Black Gingham. Placed a post-it notepad and VOILA' instant gift. Use your favorite set and kreate your perfect gift! Hope they like it and you too of course! Let me know what you think. I'll be back with one other gift and the cards as well, so stay tune!

For now, go kreate

This is very nice Kim. I wish I could see it in person. Do you put a photo in it?

I made the same gift for my daughters teachers, inspired by yours...but I changed it up a bit! I stamped all my apples red, with exception of one golden apple. Next to that I stamped the sentiment "You are one of a kind" from the One of Kind set! Thanks for the inspiration!
