Teacher gift idea

From the talented Ms. Christy comes this really cute school mini-album. Perfect for end of the year teacher gift or maybe just as a remembrance of the school year for your child. She started with this "naked" Maya Road chipboard book and then just added paper and fun embellishments.

From Creative Imaginations comes clothespins you can alter. Decorate them and then use them as a place to clip pictures or notes--looks really cute on your desk.
Or here's a wonderful idea--use them as placecards!

Grunge Paper is Here!!

Yes, we finally have it in.....the long awaited grungepaper from Tim Holtz. So many cool things you can do with this. Wendy had this cute little example on her blog--see how the wing is curled? It's cut out of grungepaper, inked, and then curled up. The amazing part is that it stays that way! You can ink it, paint it, even sew on it--the stuff is indestructible!

New papers in from Fancy Pants--totally love this line called Kraft Kuts. This scallop paper is lined--perfect for journaling and who doesn't love scalloped edged papers?! Here's my favorite paper--the colors are much more vibrant in person but I can see tons of uses for these little houses:

Speaking of which--holy cow are these cards amazing or what??
