ABC’s Blog Hop ~ T

Welcome to the Everything ABC Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog Hop

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

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from LINDA NORMAN’S Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Linda’s blog HERE.

For my “T” element I decided to focus on TEACHER.  Since school has started back up I figured I needed to work on a couple of  TEACHER THANK you cards. I designed THREE of them for you.

Teacher Thank You Cards

I posted a couple of days ago the gift that I made for my son’s Pre-school teachers.  I figured today I would share the cards that I made. I LOVE the Chalk it Up paper pack and knew it was my paper pack of choice for my Teacher thank you cards.

Teacher card ~ Chalk it up ~Teacher Appreciation ~ catscrapbooking.comHow fun is this card?  I am having so much fun with my teacher theme cards that I want to so some more for next year 🙂 I used my Cricut to cut the apple and star.  The star is actually just one of the basic shapes offered with the Cricut Design Space.  The Apple is from my Cricut subscription.  I used Chalk it Up, Lagoon, White Daisy, Flaxen and Sorbet cardstock.  The ruler/tape measure image is actually from Washi Wonder D1558 (retired hostess exclusive stamp set) which was stamped in Flaxen ink and then fussy cut.  I used the Teacher Appreciation stamp set D1612 to create the grid lines on the White Daisy star and to stamp the pencil.  Inside the card I used the “thank you” sentiment  and the “for all your dedication and effort this school year”.  The Lag0on wavy strip at the bottom is from my scraps of previously cut items.

Happy Crafting!

Teacher Appreciation

This week is Teacher Appreciation week May 4th to 8th.   This year Gavin started Preschool so it is the first year I have needed to create cards for Teacher Appreciation.  I love the stamp set Teacher Appreciation D1612

I had seen a card on Pinterest by Blythe which used a notebook style paper stamped with the ruled line which was my inspiration.  I has a lot of fun and created several versions.

Then notebook paper is a Cricut cut from the Artbooking cartridge pg 41. I cut it at 3.25″ wide by 4.33″ high. The tab at the top comes from the Art Philosophy cartridge pg 58.  It was cut at 1.54″ wide by .54″ high.
