Teacher Appreciation Week

Today I am back (finally) with some new goodies to show off!  I've been busy this week making things for my girlies' teachers and I am excited to show you what I've made!

First up is the card I made for my biggie's Kindergarten teacher:

I saw a youtube video earlier this week which Kelly Marie created for a new release preview - which I plan on buying, btw.  :)  I loved the idea of creating a chalkboard to write on, so I made my own version of the stamp she used.  I also used my Paper Smooches Smarty Pants set and then made my own little piece of chalk to finish it all off.  I think it turned out super cute!

This is the gift my daughter and I decided to give her teacher.  Her teacher loves the color green.  What's more green than bamboo?  We thought it would be fun to give her a card saying that we feel lucky to have her as our daughter's teacher.  That's exactly what I did:

I used a piece of paper stamp that I found on clearance (nice!) and then used my Lawn Fawn Sally's ABC's set for the sentiment.  Then I wrapped the pot with some green washi tape and it was finished.  My biggie thought it turned out perfectly!

For my youngest daughter's teachers, I decided to something a bit more special.  My oldest had them for her teachers two years ago, so we feel especially blessed that they are in our lives for another year.  These are the cards I made for them, which you may have seen previously for a tutorial I did for Scrapbook Steals

I thought I'd use another tutorial that I did for Scrapbook Steals and make them both beaded necklaces.  One of the teachers loves the color pink and the other is a K-State grad and fan, so I hope they enjoy what I made for them:

I decided to pull out my Smarty Pants stamp set again to make personalized and embellished gift bags, in lieu of making a gift tag.  Here is how they turned out:

Didn't these turn out fun!?  This is the first year that I've gone all out for Teacher's Appreciation week and I'm so pleased with the way everything turned out. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today!  I'll be back soon with more to show off!

Until next time...
