Teacher Journal Jar Gift Set

Good Morning!
Ready for another week?!
There was no Nascar race yesterday and since we are saving up for our Florida vacation we decided to stay home and not go out and spend money on silly things! Sure hope the Canadian Dollar picks up SOON! I went and got $1000 US the other day and it cost me $1301 Canadian...ACK!
Anyway....as I was saying....I stayed home....guess what I did? Yep...STAMPED!
I did MANY things yesterday....love those productive days!
I'll show you this for now though.
It is a teacher gift and I've been wanting to do it FORVER!
Nichole Heady has a great tutorial with the PDF files on her blog HERE.
Stamps: Making the Grade; Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, WW and Autumn Leaves DP; Ink: Kiwi; Accessories: Kiwi satin ribbon, Eyelet border punch, Oval Punch, Oval nesties, Corner rounder, Dimensionals
Here is a close-up of the card.
Close-up of the jar full of questions.
Close-up of the notebook.
Thanks for stopping by today!

This is a darling little set Dawn! Are you getting ready for the end of the school year?!?!? LOL!!! It will be over before you know it!

What a wonderful project Dawn! Love your beautiful colours! And I so agree about our silly Canadian $$.....cross border stamp shopping is getting harder to justify - WAIT - did I just say that!??!

Lisa Brown said...

So cute! As a teacher (and a stamper!), I would love a gift like this!

I love this set - they are all beautiful!!! If you think your conversion is bad, think of us in Australia where US$1000 is AU$1612!! Very depressing!
