Random Teacher Card

Hello, Hello!

Again, so sorry for not posting more often! I’m terrible at actually keeping something up to date…doesn’t matter what it is. It could be my checkbook register, filling out my planner, etc. I guess you could say I’m pretty disorgainized….no a better term would be an organized disorganization..HA! I know where everything is…..the area just isn’t neat and tidy!

Today, I have another card for you, and I have no idea where the inspiration for this one came from…..maybe from my disorganized organization?

Here’s how it came to be…

I had seen an advertisement on Amy Tan’s blog for Japanese washi tape and decided to order some. See, I had been avoiding using it because I really didn’t know what to do with it. Is that bad or what?! It’s not like a “you just stick it on there ” type of problem solver–I just didn’t have any idea as to what I could make with it. One day during the week, I’d been on Amy’s blog looking at the stuff she’d made, and the washi tape advertisement came up. I figured I’d give it a shot and went to an AWESOME website called Cute-Tape –pronounced que-te-ta-pei. I loved the grid tape so I popped it into my online shopping cart and purchased it. I’d come up with an idea when I saw the tape and couldn’t wait to get it. I got into the package when the weekend came and ta-da…a teacher card!

We got out of school today and tomorrow for sickness (I had a LOT of fluid in my ears last week, which has developed into a sinus infection…YUCK!), so that’s why you’re getting a post at this time of morning during the school year….summer’s different.

Valentine’s Day is on It’s Way

Life has been hectic around here lately! I don’t have a planning period at school, so I’m spending all of my precious scrapping time at school getting prepped for the next day. I did, however, manage to get some things done yesterday!

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I decided to go ahead and get some cards done instead of being rushed.

Here’s the one I’ll share with you today:

I found some paper doilies at the store the other day, and I knew they’d come in handy!!! All of the stamps are by Close to My Heart, and the kraft paper is by The Paper Studio.

I hope you all enjoyed this short but sweet Valentine’s Day card!


Hello world!

Hello to all you who are reading this! Welcome to Lollipops & Tangerines! If you are coming from my now-dormant {ippity} blog, you’ve made it safe and sound!

Now that I am no longer an {ippity} chick, I will be able (*hopefully*) to post more projects since I’m not constrained to using only Unity or {ippity} stamps. I’ve actually already got one project ready to show you all! Bet you weren’t expecting a project on my first post…lol.

A friend at work asked me to make a banner and some advice cards for her sister’s baby shower last week, so I’m going to start off with those! She got her idea of what she wanted from Polkadots & Pirates. There were a few things that she wanted to change about the design: 1) the colors….dark yellow and gray instead of the bright pinks and greens,2) a different bird, and 3) Change ‘Advice and Wishes…’ to just ‘Advice.’ So, without further adieu, here’s the project!

Here’s a couple of the advice cards:

And now, here’s the banner:

I think it’s quite cute, but I guess I’m a little biased!

Ok…that’s all I’ve got for the moment, but stay tuned…there will be more to come!!
