This is the what the inside looks like. I kinda wish I could have found sticky notes that matched a little better, but this is what they had at Big Lots...lol. For the link to the tutorial on how to make these please head on over to my blog HERE. I also included all the details about what I used to make these. (Look for the post labeled Back to School Teacher Gifts.)
Thanks for stopping by today!

I cannot believe that it is the end of August, where in the heck did the summer go?
Hi everyone, this is Laralee and I am so excited to be posting today. I have been making cards like crazy.........I had a goal of making 1 WELCOME card for each of my grandchildren, that are in school, for their teachers. I DID IT!!!!! These are just a couple of examples of what I have done.
I used the the teacher stamp, and also a saying stamp that I got out of the store. The other saying of GOD grant me the serenity is a stamp that I have had for years. On the scarecrow boy, he is also a stamp out of the store and his saying of "The time has come" is #18407.
We have such great stamps in the store, be sure to stop by and order a few for the winter months. DID I JUST SAY WINTER?????? Slap my mouth for swearing.
That is all I have for right now. Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see what one of the other DT members have whipped up.

Very Springish too!
My card share with you today uses the QKR Stampede stamp Perfect Christmas Tree. I just love this stamp because it looks like a Charlie Brown tree.
At Christmas I put up several trees and this stamp also reminds me of my hubby's tree because it looks about like this one, but has outdoorsy things on it instead of balls.

I just started reading a new book and I needed a bookmark. I can't find the one I used last, so it must be hiding in some other book and I probably just forgot. What to do? Make another one, right??
This one uses one of the rare vintage-style stamps from QKR Stampede - yes there are a few of those in the store. :-) I stamped this with a brown ink and colored it in with some Copic markers. I wanted to continue the aged, vintage feel of this bookmark, so I sponged the edges with Antique Linen distress ink and then with Vintage Photo distress ink. I found some blue ribbon to match the girl's dress and tied it through the top of the bookmark.
Now I can get back to reading my book and not worry about where I left off. Hope you have a great day!

Well today I am going to share a bit of a bright summery card with you. I used the In Love image for this one. I colored him with colored pencils, and layered him onto some floral PP. The sentiment is actually a part of the Rootin' image. I stamped it, and cut out the "for you" part with an oval punch. The swirly things I added last. I used a template, and added the mirrored gems with my i-Rock (a heat setting tool).
Well that is all for my card today, but here is a little sneak peek of what is coming up from me on the blog hop tomorrow. Like I said before...you don't want to miss this! So hop on over right to this blog tomorrow morning, and see what fun School Days projects we have for you!

For this card, I've used the Lion stamp. You can pair it up with different sentiments, but I just chose to let him speak in volumes.
Don't forget to come by on Friday for the blog hop, I am very excited to share with you what I have been working on and the other gals have been hard working too so you are not going to want to miss it!!
See you soon!

I'm still having fun playing with Christmas images from QKR Stampede and I don't want to stop! LOL This one is called "Joy" and it is a dream to color. It took me less than 5 minutes to color in this image and slightly longer to cut the cardstock and papers for this card.
I used Mercy's sketch this week (MTSC85) for the layout on this card. Kind of a funky design, huh? This is an odd shaped card - 6" by 3 3/8", but I really wanted to try this one out. As it turns out, I rather like these proportions. :-)
Head on over to QKR Stampede and browse through their extensive array of stamps. I find something new every time I look around, and my wish list grows even longer. LOL
