Teachers Cards – “Merry Christmas from the whole bunch”


These two ‘super-size’ card designs are the product of a custom request from one of my favourite customers.  She dreams up big ideas then it’s my job to turn them into a reality.  The brief for this one was to create 4 personalised Christmas cards in green & gold for kindy teachers with flowers or balloons and the phrase “from the whole bunch”.  There was a bit of agonising (on my part!), but the final result was amazing.  I loved them, she loved them & the teachers loved them – that’s a win!


I was lucky enough to add a Silhouette Cameo to my papercraft family last month.  This card gave me the chance to break it out!!!  I’ve had one on my wishlist for a while and my wonderful hubby surprised me with one #luckyme.  The “Christmas” & “Mrs” wording are digitally cut using the Cameo.  The teachers names are old school – cut in the Big Shot using the Perfect Print Bigz Dies.  And the requested “from the bunch of us” was simply printed using Word on the computer.  Using a variety of techniques & sources gives the card a little extra zing.  I’m looking forward to sharing more hybrid projects with you that use the Cameo as well as traditional papercraft.  Kelly x

“Berry Best”

This is a cute little card I whipped up to go with a strawberry plant that we bought as a thank you gift.  During a quick strawberry Google search, I saw the play on words – ‘berry best’ and thought it was perfect for the occasion.  It’s been a while since I’ve done any punch art, so I enjoyed the trio of simple but sweet strawberries.  Nice to go back to basics.  Simple wins my heart every time!  Kelly x
