Fall Theme Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp It Groups Fall Theme Blog Hop.  Whether you started with my blog or "hopped" over from one of my teammate’s blogs, I am happy you stopped by!
Whenever I think of fall my thoughts go to fond memories of school, especially all the excitement that surrounds back to school.  So, when I found out the theme for this months blog hop was fall I knew exactly what I had to do...something Back to School!
I can't think of a better way to start the school year off right than by presenting the teacher with a "welcome to the new school year" gift.
This was such a fun project to make and basically pretty easy to make.  The base is made from a 12" x 12" sheet of Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper, cut to 7" x 12".  The front panel is layered with Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party and Basic Black cardstock.
The pocket on the left inside flap will hold small note cards and is made using Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  The calendar was downloaded from a calendar website, using "mini calendar" for the search, cut to size, stapled together and adhered to the Lemon Lime Twist pocket.  
The notepad is a 4"x 6" Post-it notepad that has been adhered to the card base.  The flap on the right hand side is held securely closed by a 3/8" neodymium magnet placed between the "chalk board" and the Pool Party panel on the left card front and a 3/8" neodymium magnet placed underneath the stack of books on the right hand side.

  4. I love the way you did the books. I so looked forward to back-to-school time when I was a student. Such a nice presentation. Notepads are like reading glasses--never there when you need them. ;-)

    1. Sorry to hear you were caught in part of Harvey's destruction. If you would like to send me your address, I would be happy to send you the kit to make the folder. While it won't replace your destruction, it might give you a chance to break away from everything that's going on right now.
