Dry Erase Board

I felt like I needed to make my sister an inexpensive present to open on her birthday as she had already received her actual present before we celebrated... so after seeing some projects on pinterest, I thought a dry erase board would be PERFECT for her, plus this was really quick and easy to make!

It all started with an inexpensive photo frame, this one is 8 x10. You can write on the glass with dry erase markers all you want and it cleans easily. Dry erase board are not cheap, and who wants a plain white one when you can customize it for a fraction of the cost?!

The inspiration for this one came from her love of sewing and the birthday card I made her:

Tea Party Kit

I can't believe it's almost the middle February already... so far 2013 has flown by! I was super busy last month, recently came back from vacation and now I'm feeling I need to craft! It was nice to take off some time after Christmas but... I feel like I've been neglecting my paper and stamps lol.

Anyways, speaking of  Christmas... this was a present I made my sister :) A Tea Party Kit!!!

The kit includes:
8 invitations and coordinating envelopes
8 thank you cards and coordinating envelopes
8 envelope seals
8 favour boxes with tags
8 cupcake liners
8 cupcake toppers

My sister asked me for tea party ideas a while back and showed a lot of interest in planning one so I thought this would be a perfect, customized gift for her :) I used CTMH's Tea Time stamp and "K" monogram for the the majority of the pieces.

Here's a couple close ups of some details:

I am so happy she LOVED opening this! I also loved working on a variety of items and not just cards... it was a great project to work on here and there, and before I knew it the entire package was complete and I was so proud of how it turned out.

Thanks for looking! I'm thinking I may sell kits like this, probably with a banner so stay tuned for that :)
