Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #20

Hey everybody! It's time for another Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. I have never missed one of these challenges, and I didn't want to start now. I have been really busy with teacher's gifts, so for in order for me to play in the challenge, I had to make something to use as a gift. Teachers usually get something related to being a teacher, so I decide this year, I would make something 'non teacher-y'. I wanted them to be able to use something at home. I made the tag, "Christmas-y', but the other gifts are for any day. I found the idea for the clip-its from the very talented Mish! She is so creative, and I love clothes pins anyway! I think I will make myself some of these too! :) I didn't have any rust colored paper, but I found a similar color from the American Crafts Merry Mint line, so that's what a used for the tag. The tag.
The clips.
The notepad. A 2010 desk calendar that is front and back and you flip it inside out and it is the other months. I made one of these last year, and I knew it was the perfect gift. I found the instructions here. For the Winter month's it has a snowflake, Spring has a flower, Summer has Flip flops, and Fall has a leaf.
Here are all of the gifts together.
Here they are all wrapped up! I love these colors together
I have to make a total of 5 of these sets, and I only have 2 done. I need to get busier, (if that's even possible)! Don't forget about the Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge! :)
