It’s day three of Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks and I am sharing two amazing new full sized sets today that are near and dear to my heart as today is my first day back to teaching after summer vacation… well it’s my first day of teacher inservice meetings anyway. 😉 The first one is Classroom Cuties! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this set. It’s just adorable and I really like any set that gives me a chance to make some fun little notes to stow away in my kids backpacks or lunches so that’s exactly what I made for today!
I started with the Scalloped Notecard die cutouts in the primary colors. I then matted a piece of Choice Snow White cardstock after stamping it with clouds (on two of them) and the chevrons from Mark Your Spot. I stamped the little school bus, mug and school house from Classroom Cuties on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiments and die cut them with the smallest Banner Stacklets 1 die. I arranged everything and separated the layers with foam tape and added a coordinating button for accent.
I think they turned out so fun and I know my kids are going to be surprised to find them in their lunch boxes on the first day of school!
My second card uses the AMAZING new Chalkboard Elements stamp set. I am so in love with this set, it has so many possibilities that I find myself already reaching for it all the time. The other really great thing about these stamps is they are so well designed that I was able to stamp them very easily in this arrangement without having to use anything extra special – just a clear block with a grid on it and that was it.
Well that’s it for me today. 🙂 I hope you’ll hop around to see what the rest of the Baker’s Dozen has in store for you today!
