Valentine Teacher gifts

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I'm sneeking in with a couple more projects for the TCP blog hop. This first project also happens to have been made for today's TCP Tuesday challenge of It's ABC - Anything But a Card.

These are the Valentine gifts that I made for the kids teachers and other staff (ie principal, nurse, band teacher, etc.). I believe so very strongly that it is important to show appreciation for these people that have such a large influence on my children. It's the little things that count, right?

Around the school I've developed the reputation of "always making the cutest things"! The swanky little number above certainly fits the bill perfectly ! I used my new Build a Bingo set along with a couple of my favorite CutUps dies (Queen of Hearts and Heart Trio). Also used some Cotton Candy divine twine and some of those cute heart stick pins by Maya Road. I love how the little heart stamped nugget wrappers peek through the glassine bags.

This next item is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) that I made for a swap I hosted over on SCS. The only swap requirement was to use any TCP image and to embellish like crazy! I always love seeing what all the other talented artists come up with. My fellow TCP lovers never dissapoint me and occasionally we'll even convert some newbies over to the "Swanky" side.

I used a plethora of TCP goodies on this little number. Stamps are "It had to be Mew" and "Love Letters" (which is designed with a die to match along with a template which allows one to perfectly sponge the interior of the "stamp"). Also used the new Heart Rosette and previously mentioned Stamp Trio CutUps dies. Lots of Glitzy glitter (also sold by Alma at TCP) and some Peppermint divine twine (both can be found in the embellies section here) Also HAD to embellish with those Maya Road stick pins that I am so crazy about! Sprinkle's hat is colored with some Smooch pearlized accent ink (Shabby Pink and Sassy Pink) and a feline like Sprinkle deserves a blingy collar, don't you think?

Thanks for sticking around!
