Monogrammed card set

Here is a set of monogrammed cards I made for a friend's birthday. I made 3 of each color for a set of 12 cards! The monogram font is KK Monogram. I got the monogram to be in a circle by using the cut n print method with SCAL. I offset the monogram to the left because I am a real stickler for getting things centered and I knew I couldn't get these perfectly centered so I went off center on purpose!!

Sock Snowmen

I had to do another snow realted post becasue last night we had our 6th snowstorm in less than 30 days. I thought these were adorable, especially for a "snow day" with the kids and great for the lone socks that you can never find a match for!

Dial Cards

I created these dial cards by making circular text, using the cut n print method with SCAL and then just putting a brad and arrow in the middle. I'm thinking of some other cute possibilities for this application!

Gold Peak Iced Tea Bottle

For a while I have seen people altering the Frappaccino bottles from Starbucks with treats inside. Since I don't drink them, I found these Gold Peak Iced Tea bottles. I made this one for a neighbor just filled with M&Ms for a quick gift. I put paper shreds in half the bottle so you don't have to fill the whole thing (I call this frugal but festive)! Just used some scrap paper to wrap the bottle.
