Back to School stamp set

I was finally able to play today in my craft room!!! Well, first I had to clean it then I was able to play.  I wanted to create a super cute yet simple bookmark for my students to use while we read together in small groups.  I used the My Community cartridge (an oldie but a goodie) for the book which was cut at 1 1/4 inches.  The Autumn Celebrations cartridge was used to cut out the leaves (cut at 1 1/2 inches)  Edged the leaves, book and entire bookmark with brown ink and then added some string.  "Fall into a Good Book" stamp of course, is from my first stamp set "Back to School"!!!  I am having so much fun using this stamp set.  I am super excited that I have had such an overwhelming response.  Thank you all so much for your kind comments and interest in the stamp set.  If you would like to order the set, please click on the STORE tab at the top of the blog site.
I am in the process of releasing my second set soon!!!!!  So stay tuned :)  Have a wonderful weekend full of paper crafting, ink stamping, love and laughter!!!

More classroom pictures!!!

Here are a few more pictures of my classroom.  I had a fun time creating things for this years theme!  Enjoy!!!!

These are the Crystal Light containers I converted into lunch account holders.  I added a magnetic strip to the back of each one so they would stick to the chalkboard.

I found this great behavior chart off of Pinterest!  Printed it off, glued it to some black card-stock and then laminated it!  Works like a charm in the classroom :) 

Hope you enjoyed the pics!!!  Can't wait to create more things for the classroom and also for my students.  Have a super week and DON'T FORGET TO STAY TUNED FOR MY NEW STAMP RELEASE THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!

Hoot N' Holler and Mickey Font cartridges!!! What fun :)

Sorry it has taken me so long to post pictures of my classroom.  Things just started off running and haven't stopped since!  Here are a few of the projects I completed over the summer for this year's school theme. 
 I found this material at JoAnn Fabrics and just fell in love with it!!  I cut the owl at 6 inches from the Hoot n' Holler cartridge.

I hung the school theme banner above my classroom door and added some Martha Stewart Pom-Poms!  I cut out the letters for my door using the Mickey Font (shadow and standard fonts)  The owls were purchased at a local school supply store.  Yes, I know, I could have made them but for some reason this year time was certainly not on my side.

I made this Welcome banner using the Birthday Bash cartridge and Mickey Font cartridge.  I really love how this turned out. 
More pictures to come of what I designed for the inside of the classroom.  I really did enjoy creating a fun atmosphere for my kiddos this year.  I don't know what I would do without my Cricut machines!  Have a fantastic day everyone!!!!
