A gift for Dad!

Fatherhood is pretending the present
you love most is soap-on-a-rope.
~Bill Cosby

 With Father's day approaching our design team set to task creating some wonderful gifts for the man about the house and to prove that soap-on-a-rope really doesn't have to be the only special gift for dad this Father's Day.

Father's Day mini album by Cari Locken
Design team member Cari Locken created this wonderful mini album for her children to give to their father on father's days and it holds many precious treasures with photographs and hand-drawn artwork.

Cari used a combination of Imaginisce Apple Cider papers and rub-ons with Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Grommet Tags nestabilities.



Just look at those two precious little faces who are lovingly placed inside this wonderful 'Dad' frame created by design team member Sophia Allison. And what do you think might be lurking inside the shirt and tie goodie bag? Well it's brimming with sweet treats for a very special daddy!

Well the tag says it all 'best DAD'!

Design team member Michelle Unruh needed a special box to hide the Father's Day gift for her children to give to their father. So, she created this wonderful keep-sake box complete with removable 'best Dad' award tag that can be proudly warn by the lucky recipient on his special day.


Best Dad Gift Box by Michelle Unruh
Michelle used Imaginisce Happy Camper paper her i-rock and the square glam rocks, i-bond, and i-top badge plus the Spellbinders (scallop circles) and Echo Park (Dots and Stripes).

Removable award bad for the best Dad!

Okay, we know you are going to be gobsmacked by this next project because we all felt the same when we first saw DT member Keely Yowler's amazing Cigar Box completely transformed into an enchanted camping wonderland for her outdoorsy hubby.

Keely used the Imaginisce "Happy Camper" collection and her Cricut cartridge "Campin Critters". We are just loving that super cute little tent and the very unscary bear.


Well we hope we've given you some inspiration to get creative for the man-about-the house this Father's Day. What could be more perfect than a wonderful hand-made gift with love!
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow as our design team have some Father's Day cards to share!
