Give her a one-of-a-kind watercolor note set.
Made with Love | Mother's Day, Maggie Massey
I hope you have fun creating these cards! I think one of the things I love most about them is that you can make each one completely different from the one before it. There are no rules. Anything goes. And they make a lovely gift—who wouldn't want a set of unique (maybe even personalized?) note cards?
Capture what it means to be a mom.
Digging Deeper | Adding Meaningful Journaling, Candace Perkins
For this week in my Project Life®, I told all the stories through the perspective of motherhood. As I looked at the photos in my spread and began to tell my stories, I made sure that I talked about how each photo related to motherhood and how I felt about it, again, briefly mentioning the facts but going into greater detail when describing the feelings.
Record a girls' day together.
Girls' Day Mini, Stefanie Ried
Starting last year, my daughter and I started a new tradition. Two to three times a year, we have a special day together—a Mommy-Daughter day for just the two of us! Usually, she is very excited about our special dates. We decide together what we are going to do, whether it be the water park, ice cream, or go on a trip. This particular time, we went to the city and made a shopping trip. We had lots of fun. I hope that our special days together will be a long tradition. For every special day, I make a mini book. In this class, I'm going to share how to record these special days and moments. You can adapt the ideas in the class to document any type of event you wish.
Give the gift of organization
The Gift of Organization, Cara Vincens
Gifting a planner doesn't only mean that you give someone a planner to use as their everyday planner. Planners are so versatile and can be used for many different purposes. It doesn't need to be an actual planner. It doesn't have to go from January to December, or even for a whole year. It doesn't have to be in true or real time. It doesn't even have to be chronological order!
Create a personalized stationery set—just for her.
DIY Stationery Gifts, Haley Pettit
I'll be sharing a handful of crafty gifts that you can make for friends, family, or even for yourself. Most of the projects in this class can be made using items you probably already have in your stash, so they’re perfect last-minute gift ideas when you need a little something to brighten a friend’s day. At the end of this class, you'll walk away with a stash of gifts to share (or keep!) and a bunch of techniques you can use in the rest of your paper crafting projects.
Give a heartfelt keepsake.
Made with Love | Simple Gifts, Megan Hoeppner
Nothing says "heartfelt" quite like a handmade gift. In a way, it's a piece of you that you're offering to another. The time, the effort, and the love that goes into making such a gift leave such an impression—there's no way to put a price tag on that kind of sentiment.
Create a card she'll treasure.
Cards for Every Season | Spring, Lea Lawson
It's time to get creative for Mother’s Day! I actually found that I don’t have many stamp sets for this holiday, and I wanted to create a sentiment that said something more than just “Happy Mother’s Day." So, I took a sentiment that made me think of my mom and just personalized the card with alphas. This is a great way to make a card more personal and love-filled.
Make a unique mini album.
Afternoon Crafts, Paige Evans
Using my "Fancy Free" collection with Pink Paislee paired with photos of my kids in front of over a dozen colorful buildings in our town, this album came together quickly and easily. I love how it's displayed in a unique little frame, perfect for flipping through any time!
Capture the little moments.
Happy Little Moments, Maggie Holmes
So, what is a Happy Little Moment? That’s all up to you. Maybe it’s a sunrise. A good hair day. Unexpected snuggles from a child or a call from a friend you haven’t heard from in a while. A new magazine in your mailbox. It is basically any moment in your life that makes you happy or brings you joy. I call them little moments because I find that the things that often make me the happiest are the simple little things that happen around me every single day. Of course, there are many big moments and events in life that make me happy too, but the little ones seem to happen all the time, all around us, no matter where we are or what other big things are going on in our lives.
Wrap your gift with love.
Wrapped with Love, Jamie Pate
As paper crafters, I think we have this built-in knack for being givers. We are always thinking up things to make, because, well, we are makers. And makers gotta make. So, we make stuff, and we very often make stuff with others in mind. But, we don’t stop there, do we? It’s not just about giving a pretty gift but making the package just as pretty. It can be sort of our hallmark. And you know that feeling when you give something to a friend, and they ooooh and aaaaaah because of the prettiness. You know what I mean, right? I loooooove that feeling. Well, this class is all about that!
