Back to School

Hello Stamping Friends,

Hope you are enjoying these last few weeks of summer. I feel like summer just started about a week ago. Thanks in large part to a big construction project that consumed the summer. I must say, the kitchen is done and I love it. It's bright and looks so open compared to what it was.

Anyway, on to the subject that really matters, Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are showcasing for you, Back to School projects.  We all know some students heading back to the classroom or a teacher that is spending the last few days getting ready to welcome a new class of students to her room. So this week's theme is perfect for that.

I created a trio of little gifts that would be perfect for either the teacher or your favorite student. Who couldn't use a cute little notebook and matching pen?  And then the bonus magnetic decorated clips (aka clothespins) to hang important papers in the classroom or a special note or picture in a locker.
The paper in the pen is the same as the "binding" of the notebook. You NEED a pen that matches your notebook to make you feel complete. Well, I know I do. The tag on the notebook is printed designer series paper. Only the "bravo" was stamped on it. Makes it super simple to make.
Just a small piece of designer series paper will cover your clothespins to make them look great. The stars are stamped in the same colors that are found in the designer paper and coordinate with the stamped stars on the notebook.

Just a quick view of the backside so you can see the magnets.  If you go back to the first picture on this post, you will see the clear envelopes make the perfect "packaging" for these gifts. I sure love when things work out so perfectly. Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more back to school inspiration.
