Teachers Notepads

I made a couple more notepads for the girls teachers. The first one is for the Music teacher. I used my Quickutz music notes die, which I think will become obsolete very soon since I purchased a Silhouette machine!!! I found some music paper at my LSS and inked the edges.

For the Coach's notepad I wanted to keep it low key so it's pretty plain. I figure most PE teachers don't prefer bling and ribbon. ;-) I made the baseball by stamping only a part of the dotted circle that comes with the Take Note Set.

I'll be wrapping them up in these clear plastic bags that I found at Hobby Lobby. I also have some tiny bells and some pine with holly twisty things that I will be adding. And some tags that I made. I'll show you the finished gift bag when they are all finished.

Holiday Things To Do


The month of December always has me running around with tons of things to do. So while I was making some notepads for teachers and friends I decided to make one for myself. I tried a few different techniques with this pad. I layered buttons, added pearls and I used a strip of tacky tape and sprinkled with some Martha Stewart gold glitter. I also masked the "Holiday Planner" stamp and used it with the "Things to do stamp".

I added some of the girls fake snow to give it a nice wintery affect. We rarely get any snow so this is the best we're probably gonna get.

I have a few more of these notepads to share. Stay tuned! (And stay warm. It's been FREEZING here lately!)

Stamps: PTI Take Note, Holiday Button Bits
Ink: SU Old Olive & Ruby Red
Paper: SU Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chatterbox patterned paper
Misc: Flat back pearls, MS Glitter, PTI Buttons, pop dots, EK Success Punch
