to be a star, you must shine your own light...
I LOVE stars.
So I bought this new star punch recently. And just a warning...you might be seeing it a LOT! lol
I can't get enough of it!
Do you think it is just because the 4th of July is almost here?
Here are my creations with Jenni Bowlin's July kit!
I have been thinking about flying and how much I love it, because when I fly, it usually means I am going home to visit my family. On this page, I punched stars in each of the layers of paper to let the layer underneath show through. The photo is one I took on our last trip home in 2008!
Taylor's last day of school was June 24th, so I made some thank you cards for her 2 teachers. Her teachers are both men this year, and I wanted the cards to be simple. I'm terrible at manly cards, but I had to give it a go! I tucked a gift card inside each one.
The "thanks" card is a trifold card, and the "teacher" card has a star punched out of it. A yellow star was adhered on the inside to show through the opening. If I would have had more time, I would have done some colorful stitching on these cards, but I think they are cute enough as is. :)
Taylor's male teachers were SO good this year. So good. She didn't complain about going to school one single day this year and that's quite an accomplishment! The following teachers will have a tough act to beat. As a parent, I so appreciate that. Who says school can't be fun?
