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?
