Acrylic Post-it note holder and Design a Mug

This year for the Holidays, I decided to give each of my kids teacher a "custom" Acrylic post-it note holder with pen and a "custom" designed coffee tumbler. This project was really quick, easy and inexpensive to make using the tutorial from Split Coast Stamper   
I purchased the acrylic picture frames (5x7) and the design a mug from the Dollar Tree, the pens are Pentel RSVP from Staples. The PP is from My Mind's Eye- For Storytellers & Phototakers stack, ribbon is Stampin Up. I used Indie Art for the butterfly and SCAL for the scalloped circle and monogram.
BTW, this stack is FILLED with beautiful glitter pages...

Monogramed with the Teachers inital using a scal font

Let it snow!!!

I'm so excited... my two daughters are officially papercrafters... Craftyminds over on the Cricut message board is hosting a 12 and under Christmas card swap. I thought this would be a great opportunity for the girls to learn more about papercrafting and recieve some cool cards from other kids... Initally Trinity only wanted to do the swap; however Ciara joined in on the fun while making this card. Here is the 1st. of 5 cards that Trinity signed up to make. They only needed my help with ripping the paper for the snow and showing them how to properly use my acrylic stamping block. I'm so excited, now I have  live in craft partners!!!

The girls really did an awesome job, they used MS glitter, stickles, pop dots, and stamps.
