A tribute to Dad...

With Father's Day quickly approaching I thought it would be nice to share some projects for Dad. :)

A recycled can, perfect to help Dad organize all those nuts & bolts. ;)

Perfect for the king of the house:

A outdoorsy frame for a family photo:

A recycled peanut container, perfect filled with Dad's favorite candy.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your upcoming day with Dad!

Designer Tips: I cut the shape of the trunk of the tree out of cardstock and the tree top from the Pandamonia paper. (freehand)

I added flower rubons (Party Animal). I also applied the giraffe rubon onto white cardstock and trimmed around the edges so I could attach with foam dots for a 3D effect."Walk tall and be proud" is printed on a transparency and attached to the cloud with adhesive spray

Time for Wild Things

Wild Things

I'll admit...when I first saw the new Imaginisce Wild Things line..I got a little giddy! The new line has glossy accents, ribbons, rubons, stickers and some of the cutest stamps ever!

We're an animal family...every time we go to the Zoo...we have to see the Zebras. The Wild Things line just cries out for Zoo photos, animal pictures and more!

And more is just what you'll see with our talented crew and their amazing creations.

Jenn's nightshade is beyond adorable and Anabelle's idea for the animal container is genius! I know you'll agree!

Tip: I reused a container that had preciously held some cookies. I decorated it and added some little animal toys. This would be a fun gift for a little guy!

My kids aren't in school yet so I haven't given it much thought. When I was little my mom came into my class and we all drew a picture on fabric using special markers. My mom then sewed the pictures into a quilt for the teacher. It hung in her room for years. I recently saw a little sticky note cover and altered pen that I thought was really cute and would make a great gift!
