Weekend Project #5 Summertime Gossamer Blue Banner

Anyone notice that my weekend project list is growing.  Such is life.  :)  I just keep finding projects that need to get finished before I start back to work. 

This next project is from a class that I took this summer with Gossamer Blue.  I loved the idea of using paper bags as backdrops to my banner.  Thank you Michelle Wooderson for putting together such a cute project for us.  I enjoyed it. 


A Summer of Scrapbooking

I don't remember how many years it has been since Diana and I have been able to scrapbook this much during a summer but in between projects I had to take a break and do some pages.  Thanks Diana.  I have enjoyed our scrapbooking fun. 


Weekend Project #4 More School Fun

Another one of my projects that needed to get done this summer was making some numbers for the desks of my classroom and the computers. 

Since I am a Photography and Yearbook Teacher I thought Cameras and Shutters would be very appropriate for my classroom.  I fell in love with these little Camera Labels from Loni Stevens.  The labels make the perfect group labels for my desks.  I finished off the cut by using red Stickles to dress up the hearts in the center. 
For my computers in my classroom I made 1 1/2 inch square numbers.  I left them on the sheet for now but scored the sheet into squares so that I can run in through the laminator as one piece then cut it when I am done.  LOVE these Shutters by Alaa' K and Number Tag Set by Loni Stevens. 
I also needed numbers for my student seats.  The Project Life Honey & Jade sets were perfect for this project.  I pulled out two cards of 31 different designs to number 1-31.  I wanted a matching set to randomly draw student numbers.  I then used my Silhouette to cut out the numbers 1-31 and glued them on. 
I'm looking forward to getting these on my tables and equipment.  :) 


Weekend Project #3 Where Grizzlies Shine Wall Hanging

With a newly built classroom I wanted to make a fun wall where I can show off my students' work.  I decided to use a long wall in my classroom to display the words "Where Grizzlies Shine" and I plan to surround it with "best of show" photos my students have taken. I am excited.  It is looking good. 


Craft Warehouse Design Team Project Life Mini Album

I had a lot of fun working for Craft Warehouse again.  :)  Check out my post on the Craft Warehouse blog.  There is even a video on how I made the album and a full walk through on Youtube.  Hope you like it. 


Weekend Project #2

The second project I finished this weekend is a baby gift for my cousin's new baby.  They are decorating their nursery in tans, browns and elephants so I thought this would work well.  :)  I love the little elephant.  It is from the Silhouette Online and is designed by Rivka Wilkins. 


Weekend Project #1

This weekend I decided to knock off several projects that have been laying around as well as a couple new projects.

-A wall hanging I saw at the beach "My Happy Place"
-My "When Grizzlies Shine" wall hanging for my classroom
-A fabric canvas wall hanging for my room.
-A baby gift that I need tomorrow...nothing like waiting until the last minute
-A baby gift I never finished for a baby shower a couple months ago

This first project is a spin off of a sign I saw at the beach.  I wanted it to match my new comforter that is creams and grey.  Then I added a verse to it.

Romans 12:12  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

I bought the wood slats on sale at Craft Warehouse and painted it with grey primer.  I then cut vinyl for the lettering and placed it on the dried grey board.  Then I painted white over the top of the lettering.   After it dried, I removed the lettering to reveal the grey paint underneath.  I sanded the board to distress it and then added jewels and ribbon.  I love how it turned out
