Father's Day cards & Teacher Gifts

I can't believe it is already a week into June!! Time sure if flying by!! Well, speaking about "time"...Father's Day is just around the corner! Here are a couple cards I made using Crate Paper! I just LOVE this line because it is very masculine and was super easy to distress!! The second card I used one of Sheila's stamps from That's Jazzy Stamp Dreams called Big Swirl...her stamps are so amazing!! I just loved this scroll and thought it added the perfect touch...since I wasn't able to use flowers!! lol

I'm sure some of your kids are already out of school...mine will be done with Preschool as of Wednesday and then will be graduating on Thursday night!! They grow up so fast!
Here are the gifts I will be giving his teachers...they were very inexpensive (especially when you are making five of them) and really fun to make! Here's another altered Starbucks bottle! I was able to find some pink M&M's and flavored tootsie rolls to put inside! And for the seeds packet...I just thought the "Forget-Me-Nots" were perfect in a matchbook style card! I hope these ideas will inspire you and help with any "last" minute gifts!


  1. Great cards...adorable teacher gifts!!! I will so be lifting this for next year!!!

  2. Great cards (as usual, of course) and I'm actually happy to see you breaking out of your flower rut. I know flowers are also your "style". I mean, yes, your flower cards are beautiful and I LOVE them, but you're so much MORE than that. :) Don't take what I'm saying harshly beacause I totally, totally don't mean it that way!!!

  3. I soooo Luv Crate paper- Fab design- Loving all ur cards !


  4. Great masculine cards,Jackie ! very inspiring ! They aren't the easiest to do alrite ! Altho' I've done some with florals too before lol !
