Also posting today are: Lauren, Monique, and Kristin

With teacher appreciation week coming up in early May, I decided to put together a card set using the new Occasional Labels, Sentimental Occasions, and the Occasional Label Pretty Pieces cut file. I can see this trio becoming a definite go-to item for creating beautiful card sets, especially since {squeal} one of the frames is gingham!!! Be still my heart! Seriously, I love the look of a splash of gingham with just about anything else. It's so perfect and so sweet! And the build-it-style sentiments provide so much versatility!

Here's a look at my card set, one by one. The only things I changed were the sentiments and the floral silhouettes (there are four flowers in the Occasional Labels stamp set):






Of course I needed some cute packaging to hold them all. The Slip Cover Pretty Packaging template was perfect:




Can't wait to make a couple more of these!

Gorgeous cards and box to put them in. Love the wavy front on the box. Yummy DPs, colour combo and use of the labels.

Sweet Amy, you must be the favorite parent a your neighborhood elementary school. I am betting the teachers bribe the principal to get one of your kiddos in their class!

This is amazing! I would not be able to send these beautiful cards; I would horde them for life.
