I used the Locker Talk and My World cartridges to put together some "while you were out" folders for students. These folders are a little more suited for the older grades, middle and/or high school where teachers only teach one content area. You can jazz them up a bit more than what I did-I love these folders for students who are absent. This serves as a great organizational tool for teachers and makes it very easy for both student and teacher to locate missing assignments. I recommend laminating the folders to help with the wear and tear over the years.

I had a blast scrappin' with the gals tonight! I was able to finish up the party goodie bags for my great nephew's 1st birthday party tomorrow :) It's hard to believe that handsome little boy is turning 1!!!! I cut the CARS logo at 2 1/2 and used extra large plastic bags found at Michaels. Pretty simple, quick and super cute!!!
I had a fun time creating this centerpiece for the party. I used an old cardboard box-covered it with black card stock and then cut out the images. I purchased some shiny red party filler, two floral foam squares and hot glued them into the box. I was originally going to use skewers but found some straws for the traffic signs and glued them into the foam pieces. This is a fun and cute cartridge to play with-I think I might cut out more images for some scrapbook pages :) Hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday afternoon. I am now off to bed-I need the rest before the party tomorrow :)

I created this birthday banner using Birthday Bash and the CARS cartridges. The banner base and overlay were both cut at 10 1/2 inches. McQueen cut at 4 inches, Mater 5 inches, Sally 3 3/4 inches, the flags and Cars emblem cut at 4 inches. The light signal was cut at 5 inches. Once I had the design in mind it was pretty easy and quick to complete. One thing- make sure you cut the images at least 4 inches or larger. The CARS cartridge has a lot of layering and it is detailed. Piecing the layers together took some time but overall it was a fun project to make. My great nephew turned 1 today and we will be celebrating his birthday this coming weekend. Guess who he is a big fan of? LOL.....Lightening McQueen!! Centerpiece and party favor bag pictures to follow :)

I decided to create a simple and quick Valentine's Day card using the Sweetheart Cartridge. I also used the Martha Stewart jumbo heart punch which I really love! Add some ribbon and some bling and you have created yourself a beautiful card to give to your sweetheart. Hope you enjoy!
