Teacher's Gifts

Before I get onto my title's subject, Catherine asked me what fonts I used for the New Year's Party invitations. The fonts I used were:
  • Palatino (standard with Photoshop)
  • Bordeaux Roman Bold LET (standard with Photoshop)
  • Chopin Script (downloadable for free from
  • Avenir LT (downloadable from
I made a very simple homemade gift for them. I recycled some glass jars, decorated them and filled them with Quality Street sweets.

For Ruben's teacher:

The card was inspired by one of the DT members of Papertrey Ink:

For Rebecca's teacher:

This one was also inspired by a DT member of Papertrey Ink:

And finally for Renee's teacher:

And I was in the mood to make cards last night, I made another one. Not sure whom I'll be sending this one to yet.

Well, I got to... time for the school run. Thanks for stopping by.

Wow.....gorgeous Christmas gifts and cards, Lisette. I didn't have time to make teacher's gifts this year. :-( Next time I'll start early. Love the Joy card too. Great use of the PTI stamps.
