Flashback Friday

Hi everyone and welcome to my first Flashback Friday!  I am SO excited for this idea, that my friend Noelle gave me.  She kept finding videos and projects that she had missed that I posted, ‘back in the day,’ so she thought it would be a great idea to re-post some of them for newer readers or as refreshers for those of you that have been with me since the beginning! 🙂

But, first let me show you a peek of my new scrap room- Mr. Pink helped me paint the chevron wall 🙂

Okay– today, for the first Flashback Friday, I wanted to focus on Teacher type gifts and projects since- the school year is so close to starting!

First, the ever-popular Crayon wreath :0)

Of course, a coffee gift!

The sentiment is actually a combination of 2 sentiments:  The first part is from the PBD Perk Up stamp set,  and the “teacher” part is from the PBD Our Teachers stamp set. 


Another way to make a school wreath 🙂

I used the DCWV Grade School Stack to make a couple quick embellishments- as well as a stamped image (crayon box)  The chalkboard, I picked up at Joann’s and stamped it with a soon-to-come-out Pink by Design stamp and white staz-on ink!

And…maybe a quick candy gift!

You could make it say Have a Whopper of a School Year 🙂

For this project, first you will need to take a sheet of solid cardstock- and cut it to 7 x 9 5/8 inches.  Score the long side at 4 1/8 & 5 1/2 – fold on the score lines.  This will make a ‘book’ the perfect size for a box of WHOPPERS!!  Then using printed card stock, stamps, chalkboard paper and chalk- decorate your book! I like how it looks like a chalkboard on the front of the book.You can use a repositionable adhesive to adhere the Whoppers straight to the card stock back and binding.


So, if you were a teacher or are a teacher- which gift would you like to see to start the year out?  And, what do you think about Flashback Friday?? Great idea, or what?

  1. Hi,I like how you painted your craft room. I see you own a Tim Holtz vagabond. I have one too and I love it. Do you like yours? I like all the projects that you show for are school theacher or in my case it for my daughter to decorat her window in her class room. She just got her first class room for the 3 rd grade to be the teacher and not the assitance teacher. And I’m very happy for her. And thank you again for show off some of the things that you created for teacher.
    Have a great weekend 🙂
