Off the page and into the tin ……part 1

This is just gorgeous………was made by my sister and I as a retirement present for a special teacher at our Primary School who had been there since the ark! Sandra will hit me for that!

Each staff member wrote a lovely memory or wish and we turned this into a memento that she can keep forever! Much better than a card ! Oooopppps the cardmakers are hitting me now……..this is quite funny, I’m planning to change the name of this blog into “Leavers anon”…..because it is ALWAYS about someone leaving!!!!! I need some arrival stories now!!!

This was done just about all with Stampin’ Up! stuff……except for the chipboard S on the front (think that was bella)and the rose flourises (five kids and a dog). The theme we used was pulled together nicely with the recollections papers and the Wild Rose set as well as some Linen background. Used cranberry crisp ink and true thyme……..as well as confetti cream cardstock, vellum paper and of course…….lots of hodge podge……:-) She really loves it. We coated the tin with ModPodge so that it can be easily wiped over……..

I’d love to own one of these……..my stamp club group are creating their own min versions and I can’t wait to see their faces as they start to come together…..they are very satisfying!!!!!!!
