PTI Blog Hop
This is my first time participating in a Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, but when I saw that the challenge was to create a project with one of Lauren Meader's My Timeless Templates, I knew I had to participate!! If you're a regular blog reader you know I'm a sucker for all things gift-y!
Remember the card I made for Aunty Joyce earlier this week using Lauren's Saturday Sketch #30? Well, I also created this adorable gift set to go with it using Lauren's From the Desk Of template. I once again used PTI's Teacher's Apple stamp set along with Kraft & Chocolate Chip CS and A Walk in the Park DP (SU) paired with Pure Poppy Bitty Dot Basics. I love this color combo together with this stamp set!!
Inside Aunty's Joyce's Desktop Organizer is a little bunch of pencils wrapped with ribbon and embellished with a red button, an altered post-it note pad, a 4x6 covered notepad and matching pen, an altered jumbo binder clip, and a little mint tin filled with stickers she can use on student's artwork and projects. I made the stickers by stamping various apples onto Avery label paper and punching out with a circle punch. I also made several "A+" stickers by stamping the "A" from PTI's Fresh Alphabet along with the "I" stamped both vertically and horizontally to create the "+"....yeah, I'm pretty clever like that!! ha!
Here's a closer look at some of the individual items inside the desktop organizer:
So what do you think? Be sure to head on over to the Papertrey Forum and check out the links to all the other Blog Hop participants!!!
ETA: HERE is a link to an old tutorial I wrote for the Post-It note cover. I know there are lots like it out there, but thought I would share.
