Yes another group of girls have now graduated and once again my house (the RED house at school) made some parting gifts for the year 12's in our house. (You can click here to see what we made last year) This year we made little boxes using the Top Note Die and made a little gift card to go inside sticking with the owl theme. Inside the card was a little quote (each girl had their own quote particular to them and their personality). The girls were thrilled with their little gift and I hope they treasure them for years to come. Each graduating box came with its own little tassle (in red of course), the card uses the owl from Fox and Friends and the sentiment is the Happy Grad Set. The graduating hat on the owl is stamped and cut out from the Great Grads set. Click here to see instructions to make the box. I have included a collage of the girls in production mode from one of our crafting sessions - the girls really love making them and look forward to it each year. I found the idea for these cute little graduation boxes here.

I can't believe how long it has taken me to post something new. Not that I want to make excuses but I have been flat out with my students preparing for exams, writing reports (who would be a teacher huh!) oh and am I allowed to have a holiday in there somewhere! Anyway I had to get my butt organised and work out what to do at stamp club on the weekend and this is what I came up with. It is a technique called black magic. Each month my stamp clubees (is this even a word - LOL) learn a new technique and make some cards using that technique. I found an idea for the tree card on SCS and then I wanted to use some of my new stamps for the other card and this is what I came up with. The swirl is from the gorgeous new set called Elements of Style. I always like to find ways to use my non-Christmas themed stamps for Christmas cards in a way they were not intended. The tree also comes from a non-christmas set called Lovely as a Tree. Anyway once I stamped the swirl on the card I decided to leave it as is and not colour it like the tree - I think the classic look looks just as effective. I am so in love with the new ribbon and the new sentiment set Curly Cute. Thanks for looking. Did you notice my new watermark?
