CDD "Summer" linky party

Time for a new linky party over at Craftin Desert Divas

This time the theme is "Summer"

One lucky winner will get a stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.

One lucky winner will get a $25.00 gift certificate for regular priced files from Too Cute by Jessica.

Here is my project for the linky party -

For my "summer"themed project I decided to create these cute sand pail shaped boxes and use them for end of the school year teacher thank yous.  Our school year ends mid June so I thought these would be a perfect way for my youngest daughter to take some treats to her teachers.  I have had this silhouette file for awhile now and was looking for an opportunity to use it.

Since these are thank you gifts for teachers I chose to use a sentiment from the CDD "Hey Pumpkin" stamp set.  The sand pail is a file from the silhouette online store - id#62453  I also used the CDD "Banner" die set to cut out stars from kraft cardstock and stuck them on the shovels to look like starfish.

All of my ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM.  I created my sand by tearing cardstock and then adding some diamond stickles to the top edge.  I inked the sand and the stars with  Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.

You can purchase this stamp set and the die set in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop.
