Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Hey Valentine

Welcome to this weeks Blog Hop! Glad you have joined us & hope you are inspired by all the fun projects the team has to share with you.

We got a neat mix of products in this month's box, so many possibilities for creativity to just run wild...anyway one of the things we got was the Handpicked Framelits & From the Garden stamp set which I knew would be a stretch for me. I am horrible at keeping plants alive so I wasn't in love with it at first & had to think a little outside the box.

As I looked at the framelits I started see the makings of school supplies-

Pencils & crayons to be exact. I'm still working on my "crayon" card but I refined the pencil a bit by adding the score lines & think this would be such a fun tag for a Teacher gift- I homeschool my girls & want to tear my hair out half the time so I have mad respect for teachers that have 30+ kids to deal with.

FYI-that amazing wrapping paper that was released in the holiday catalog is on the clearance rack! It is so perfect for making these little bags!

Hope you are inspired to whip up something for a teacher just to show your appreciation for them!
If anyone would like a video on how to make the pencils just give me a holler-
now lets go visit Sarah!

  4. what is the lined paper sheets? did you draw that freehand?

  5. Hi mercedes, i think your ideas are great! Your pencil might look even better if you move the ragged border that marks where the yellow stops and you can see the interior wood a bit farther from the pencil point, to the place where the angle occurs, so about a quarter inch closer to the eraser end
