Good morning everyone. Today I am playing along with the Friday challenge over at JustRite. The challenge is called Back To School - Meet The Teacher and is being sponsored by Spellbinders.
I decided to create an ensemble for my daughter's teacher. Emily is going into 5th grade this year. I cannot believe that she is already in 5th grade!! Where is the time going. Her teacher this year is Mrs. Richard. I don't know much about this teacher because she was not there when my oldest daughter was in 5th grade. I'm not sure what her likes or colors are so I just guessed.
The ensemble included a mini clipboard, a post-it note holder, and a paperclip.
The mini clipboard was purchased in a dollar bin at either AC Moore or Michaels. I covered it with designer paper and some ribbon. To personalize it, I pulled out my JustRite Times Roman Uppercase & Lowercase font. I love to personalize gifts - I believe that it makes the receiver appreciate the extra time that was spent on the gift. Once I stamped her name, I diecut it with Spellbinders Labels Trio.
Next I created a little post-it note holder using a clear 4 x 6 frame. I've seen these all over blogland - a very popular gift idea. I used the same designer paper and ribbon. I chose a border and center from the "Breath Of Spring" stamp set, colored it with Copics and diecut with Spellbinders Labels 11. I like the frame that this die gives to my oval. To finish off the flowers I added orange Stickles to the flower centers.
The last piece of my ensemble is an oversized paperclip. To personalize this I chose the letter "R" and border from the "Damask Kit". This was diecut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles and Classic Scallop Circles. Next I chose a border from the "2" Round Decorative Borders" set. Then it was diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles matted onto a scallop circle. To finish it off, I added yellow Stickles and some yellow ribbon.
Memento Ink can now be purchased from the JustRite website - one stop shopping at its best!!
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. Have a great weekend!!
