I’ve had to be particularly creative with my interpretation of today’s inspiration ‘Extinct Mediums’. My spin on today is two fold: Brown Kraft Paper (aka Crumb Cake in Stampin’ Up! land) and kids WITH manners.
Although I wouldn’t say that using brown paper is completely extinct, it has only been quite recently that papercraft trends revived brown kraft products from their depressing fate as book covers and parcel wrapping. I absolute love Crumb Cake, which has been renamed from it’s original label of Kraft in this year’s Ideas Book and Catalogue.
Tonight my eldest DD and I made some thankyou cards for her teachers. We have just returned from the Central Coast dance festival. We used the gorgeous Pendant Notes.
Which brings me to the second interpretation of ‘Kids with manners’. Ever noticed that it is no longer commonplace for kids to say ‘please’ or ‘thankyou’? I always say that common sense and common courtesies aren’t that common anymore. These cards are headed off to school tomorrow to say a big THANKYOU to DD’s school teachers who have spent countless hours teaching dance group, organising and creating costumes and travelling back and forth to rehearsals. That’s not to mention the late night perfomances and working behind the scenes on other nights. Bless. Thankyou beautiful teachers – you are gems.
