Clean & Simple Teacher's Gifts

Today I'm going to share a few of the Clean & Simple cards I had created for teacher's gifts.  You can see some of the others I created here and here.  

The above card is a set from Close to my Heart which is perfect for masculine cards for either kids or adults.  I've had it for quite some time and it always works for those hard to create man cards.

The cards I created for the teacher's gifts were using simple layouts from the following blogs in which I used sketches, inspiration, etc. from:
 
I tried ONLY to use scraps from my scrap bin with the exception of the card base.  This one was very simple and I made a lot of them.  I simply put a little sentiment on, one stamp-that's it.

Hope you have enjoyed the clean & simple cards today-I need to find my mojo as it's hidden somewhere and it's been hard to create this weekend.  I think I managed 2 cards-think I need to clean my craft area and reduce some of the supplies I have on hand.  Do you ever look at your stuff and feel overwhelmed as to what stamps to use, what papers, etc?  I think I get that way sometimes.  Sometimes.

Have a great Monday!

I love that ZOOM in the background of the first card - that little detail really makes the whole thing pop!!! The teachers must smile when they see you coming!
