Newsflash: Everything at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff is 40% off til Midnight Sunday!
I know…It’s only August but before you know it the kids will be getting on the school bus for their first day of school. I used the SVG die cuts in the Apple For Teacher kit to make some cute back to school goodies:
I love the gift bags, you can fill them with goodies for teacher or supplies for kids, I think it would be really sweet to make a bag like this for a pre-schooler who want’s to go to school with the “big kids” but is too young so they can play school anytime they like.
It is still summer and I’m making sure my kids stay on track with their reading. That’s why I designed this bookmark with a slot cut into it so my beginning readers can isolate one line as they read, now that they are starting on chapter books it is easy to lose their place and this really helps. Teachers can make these up and laminate them so they will hold up through the school year and still be see-through.
These sweet apple clips can be used as bookmarks too if you like! Also you get a plain paper clip and a plain apple SVG die cut so you have more versatility!
But that’s not all, I know not everyone has a die cut machine so I included full color printables in this kit, just print, cut and glue! As always you also get outline black and white templates too 😉 Here is a look at the Apple For Teacher kit:
You might also like Teacher’s Helper SVG set too:
I hope I inspired you to create a little back to school treat this year!
Don’t forget the 40% off sale on at LSS through Midnight Sunday! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

First off I want to remind you that Everything at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff is 35% off through Saturday! OK now that the business is done let’s have some fun! I love making cute party favors for my parties but what’s better is when the favors actually serve as party decor, check out this paper cake made with the Cake Favor Box SVG kit:
Isn’t that fun? The bottom layer of the cake is 12 individual cake slice boxes. I cut them out with Sure Cuts a lot software and my electronic die cut Each box cuts in seconds, then you just need to score, fold and glue. The boxes open on the end so they can be opened without destroying them, great for make ahead favors!
Here is a quick party decorating tip: Use pretty wrapping paper (the black and white damask print is from the dollar spot at Target) as a table runner! It adds a lot of style and cost’s next to nothing!
The kit comes with cupcake wrappers and fancy labels too, I love coordinated party decorations!
So, I was trying to think of a way to make a cute cake stand and it hit me:
I simply covered a tin can with pretty paper and placed a shallow round casserole dish on it! It is so easy and you can make as many as you need for a party then everything can be put back afterward (no awkward cake stands to find a home for) also it is nice because party food looks so much nicer displayed at different heights and levels. You could even dress up the bottom of the can with crepe paper fringe or a ribbon ruffell.
Here is a look at the Cake Box Favor SVG kit. There are printable templates in the kit too as well as a SCUT2 file with the above project all laid out for you for best use of cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Hello there! Today I thought I’d show you how you can make some baby cards that are cute as well as quick to make. Think of using one of these shaped designs the next time you need to make a card for a new parent or when hosting a baby shower. I used SVG die cuts from my Sweet Baby SVG set (I cut them with my electronic die cutter and SCAL software) but the kit also has printable templates too! These cards are easy on the wallet too, I made 12 shaped cards using 6 sheets of 12″x12″ cardstock, stamps and scraps of ribbon/trim.
The diaper cards are my favorite! I like how quick and simple they are. After I die cut all of my card templates I used round and scallop paper punches to punch shapes from any excess paper. Then I layered my punch outs on my card as shown. I stamped “cute as a button” (Pink Persimmon) on the circle them stamped one of the buttons from the kit on a 1″ circle of cardstock then I clued 5 1″ circles together with the stamped button on top to make the 3-D button. I used my heavy-duty Crop-a-Dial to punch out the button holes and tied a short ribbon through before gluing it on my card. A bit of organza ribbon threaded through the slots in the front of the card finishes it off nicely.
Another thing I love about the diaper card is the liner. I simply cut a sheet of white cardstock in quarters, cut off the corners where the leg holes in the diaper are and used a scallop border punch along those edges and along the top. Then I slipped the lined in the diaper card and trimmed the top corners to fit. You can see how to trim a 8.5″x11″ sgheet of cardstock by looking at the following diagram:
The rattle cards were also quick to make, I was able to cut one diaper card and one rattle card on a 12″x12″ sheet, cutting both together saves paper. The rattle cards were stamped and layered much the same as the diaper card:
The onesie cards are a big hit! These always sell well at craft fairs so make a few extra. You can cut two from a 12″x12″ sheet of cardstock.
Here is a look at the Sweet Baby SVG set, only $3 from Lindsay’s stamp Stuff:
So the next time you need to make invitations to a baby shower or a card for a new mom skip the store and craft one instead! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
