Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges: Day 3 & 4

Hi there!
I have a  couple of projects to share for the PTI anniversary celebrations.

First of all, Sage & I got crafty on Saturday and made 44 valentine treat bags for her teachers & classmates.
She's in a Grade 5/6 split French Immersion class, but joins with the other Grade 5 French Immersion class for an hour each day for social studies & science, so she wanted to make treat
bags for them, too.

We're linking these up for the Day 3: Bagged & Tagged Challenge.

It was definitely a team effort.
On Saturday afternoon, I trimmed cardstock strips to 4.25x2.25" and Sage scored the one end at 1".
I stamped the sentiments (from You're a Masterpiece) in Versafine and heat embossed them in clear.
Then, Sage & I used our Gelatos we bought with the You're a Masterpiece kit
to paint all of the tags.

Then, yesterday afternoon, after church, we put pieces of Butter Crunch in small white lunch bags, 
folded them over and stapled the tags to each bag.

Sage got the idea to splatter each tag with the gelato.
Here's one that she made:

Here's one that I made:

And here are two that we made for the boys.

And Sunday afternoon, I also played in my craft room and 
made a card for the Day 4: Build a Bouquet Challenge.
I actually don't have that many PTI floral sets, so I used the floral image from County Fair
and some images from Tinsel & Tags Sprigs stamp set.

I started by diecutting the Layered Banner dies from aqua mist cardstock and from
some aqua mist striped patterned paper.
I stamped the sentiment from the Layered Banner Banter stamp set.
I stamped the County Fair images on the white panel on my card as well as on a coordinating diecut.
I added a few Tinsel & Tags Sprigs that I stamped on coordinating diecuts.

And before you go, I just want to let you know
that I have a card on the Chickaniddy Crafts blog today, 
if you'd like to check it out.

Here's a peek:

You and Sage crafting together makes my heart sing! I'm hoping, when my niece is a bit older, and we can have extended time together, that we can bond over stamping, inking and die-cutting together. We've done so on a couple occasions, when I've brought my 'mobile crafting unit,' and oh my...such joy! Sage, your combined efforts with you mom in designing these treat bags: awesome! Love the tags, especially the change up of colours for the boys/girls. As for the treats inside: what delights await your classmates! Leigh, floral card is gorgeous; the banner and cluster sure catch my eye! Another visit = another beaming smile!
