Everything ABC Blog Hop - Letter Y

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter Y. This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their Y element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog you are at the beginning!

Letter Y was just not calling to me with ideas, so today as I was working on cards for the sweet lady who cleans my house, I decided to use You.   As in, You are special to me! Several You people are featured in the post!  My kids teachers, Sandra who cleans for messes (lots of them) and some regular customers who keep my business going month after month!  I haven't finished all of them and forgot to take photos of some of them!  

All of the patterns are from either the Make It From Your Heart 1 or 2 how to books! I will refer to them as the MIFYH books from here on out!
Above is the card for Mrs. Schropp, my daughter Lora's teacher.  I give them 10 cards in a magazine holder and also the Monogram stamp and a 2x2 block so they can use their monogram again! This pattern is #26 from MIFYH #1.
The above card is made from the retired Sophia papers and is for Mrs. Casteneda, Micah's teacher. This pattern #28 in the MIFYH #2.
Above is made from retired Stella papers and is for Mrs. Burmeister, Sara's teacher. The pattern is #24 in MIFYH #1.
Above is from the Dotty paper pack that was a special some time ago and is for Ms. Trejo, Joshua's teacher!  These might be my favorite because they are so colorful and each card is a little different! This is from the MIFYH #1 pattern #21.
Above is a card I made for Karen one of my regular layout class attenders!    It is from MIFYH #1 pattern 23. I didn't have the K Monogram so I pulled out my lovely Bohemian Alphabet stamps and used it!  I actually love the way it turned out!
The cards or Sandra and my customers I bundled with a pretty piece of ribbon, simple and quick!

  1. What a fun idea to use the initial on the front of the card! Love all the different designs but my favorite is the Stella one.
