You're tea-riffic card!

Happy Valentine's day! What a great day it's been: so many little hugs and valentines from my students, crafts and special treats! My day started off on a great note exchanging cards with my love Jeremy. I had so much fun making his card this weekend! I found the idea on pinterest, then printed the words from my computer and slapped a tea bag on there. Added a bit of details with a thin black marker and voilà: an adorable and hilarious card!

I picked a tea he likes... smells so yummy!
Who knew you could draw on a tea bag!?


DIY Beaver Valentines!

Hi there! It was snowing all day over here, so me and the mister stayed home. I decided to put on some comfy clothes and have a crafternoon after some movie-watching. What a lovely afternoon it was!

Every year, I usually make my students a little handmade valentine. This year, I decided to revisit an old project: my DIY Squirrel valentines (check them out here). However, our school mascot is a beaver... so i just switched out my little woodland creature. They turned out so adorable!!

  ❥ coloured card stock 
  ❥ fine black marker
  ❥ glue stick
  ❥ scissors 
  ❥ coloring pencils 
  ❥ felt hearts
  ❥ DIY Heart Stamp & stamp pad
I made all 22 one step at a time, assembly-line style!

So cute! Can't wait to hand them out!


Paper Heart Garland

Hi there! Valentines day is around the corner and I wanted to decorate my classroom. Not go overboard, but just add a few hearts here and there. I had some pretty valentine's day patterned paper i picked up last year,  so I decided to cut out some hearts and string them together to make a garland. I have 3 hanging around the classroom and I love 'em so much! I even laminated them so that I can re-use them every year! They were inspired my my Fall leaf garlands! Hooray for DIY!

 ❥ coloured or printed cardstock
 ❥ needle and string
 ❥ scissors

① Make a heart the size you like (I found a clipart on-line)
② Trace hearts onto your cardstock and cut them out (I cut two sheets at once - one with the image, one without underneath).
③ "Sew" the string into each heart, alternating colours!
④ Voilà!


What a Ride Card

Hey guys! I had a fun morning making this card for a good friend of mine. She has a special day today so I decided to make her a card full of love! I'm sure getting value out of this heart punch!
Check out my other DIY confetti heart card here!

 ❥ cardstock
 ❥ scraps of patterned paper
 ❥ heart punch
 ❥ thin black marker
 ❥ printer

I started by printing the words "What a ride" on my cardstock.
I used the font "Emily the brush"
Then I drew a tiny bicycle!
The start.... 
Then I punched out a bunch of tiny hearts!
I glued them down and drew little strings to transform them into balloons!


Heart Confetti Card

Hi there!

Yesterday, i made a secret card for my amazing boyfriend, as we celebrate our six months together. He's makes my heart so full that I had to make him a card full of hearts!! I also got to try out my new heart punch! Awesome!

Check out my other confetti cards here. 
I used my heart punches! The larger one was about 5$
at my craft store. The smaller one is from the dollar store.

So many hearts!


Watercolor Logo DIY

Hi there! I've recently given my blog a little bit of a facelift thanks to the help of my boyfriend. He did some coding magic and I searched the internet for ideas for my new logo. I really love this watercolour trend that's happening on the web and all these pretty cursive brush fonts!

Look at the transformation!

It's beautiful!!! Fresh, simple and oh so cute!

 My 5 year old logo.... very "busy"!


Sock snowmen!

Hi there!

Look at these adorable snowmen we made at work today! My colleagues do this every year and the kids went bananas for them! So cute. I found this tutorial on youtube. We used rice only on the bottom and then added a bunch of stuffing to make them nice and plush!
