September POM Close-ups

Hi! Remember me? I'm the one who used to blog here...

It's been a crazy week moving into a new school and getting the first couple of days going. My classroom is mostly unpacked. I still have several boxes floating around and nothing on the walls. Gotta get the kids to do some art to put up. The first two days have gone well. As usual, I'm still mourning the loss of last year's class, especially because I was supposed to loop up with them. I'm sure in no time, I'll be loving my new group just as much. Happens every year. I'm SO tired and ready for the weekend. I haven't even had time to read any blogs this week.

I wanted to do a quick post with the close-ups and recipes of those cards for September's Project of the Month class. All eight cards and envelopes are held together in this little faux tote that I borrowed from Katie Renz. Custom envelopes are courtesy of Cindy Lawrence. Go back a couple of posts, too tired to link...pathetic, I know.

{Notes & Tote recipe}
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, PTI White, Hawaii Papaya
Accessories: A2 envelopes (medium from SU!), word window punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, marvy scallop punch, wide oval punch, slot punch, 5/8" striped ribbon in tangerine tango and kiwi kiss, 5/8 chocolate grosgrain ribbon, white taffeta ribbon, vanilla/kiwi satin ribbon, wide chocolate double-stitched ribbon

I'm hoping my order arrives before the class. If not, I'll be using some of the new Haiku paper for this class too.

I'll see you this weekend for Lauren's Saturday Sketch.

Beautiful cards! Great colors, I love all the styles and stamps with the fabulous paper! I can only imagine how tired you are (thinking back to last fall for me!), but hang in there! It's Friday! I'm sure you're kids will be awesome!

LeAnne said...

Jeepers Creepers girl! You GO! What a spread! You have to submit these cards to a magazine!! I just got this set too, and I love it! I'm sort of going backwards on your blog. So anyway, hope you got some artwork on the walls to inspire. I always loved the teachers that had bright walls. And I was ALWAYS jealous of the kids that had teachers with ART on their DOORS! haha, silly, but I really was! I think you know what I mean. Hugs, Jenn
