USTAMP Blog Hop 2012-Envelope Faux Book

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Teresa Giordanos' Little Memories, what a FUN way to preserve memories? Tere is a FABULOUS Designer and always shares something special for UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! events!!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.

Scrapbooking for some is a tedious task. I wanted to show how preserving your memories can be FUN and EASY. It also doesn't have to be TRADITIONAL. I made a Envelope Faux Book.

Do you notice the cutie in the picture on the left...This is my hubby and I when we were in Kindergarten and if you see inside the box is Solimar's Kindergarten picture. When Joaquin starts Kindergarten we will add his picture. You can also add special trinkets in the box as well, under the pictures. 

Here is my LOVELY card using Papaya Collage. Its a new stamp set in the 2012-2013 catty.
I have also used the new colors Midnight Muse (base), Summer Starfruit (frame).
In my tutorial you will see how I extended the frame to make it longer.

Purple is her fave color

Hola Amigas! Yesterday was Purple Day. We asked the students to wear something purple, their teacher's favorite color. The could have worn a purple shirt, pants, earrings, accessories, hat, freckles, spray painted hair...You Get the Point! Tara and I (we are the room moms) presented her with a bouquet of purple flowers along with a book Tara put together called What I Like Best about Mrs. Schultz. We loved reading all the different answers...On PURPLE day I made her this canvas with the melting crayon technique...I began to add her name but it was too long. I have to come up with an alternative. 
Although as is LOOKS GOOD TOO!
Here is the note card set for PURPLE day.

RECIPE: ALL STAMPIN' UP! (unless otherwise specified)
Paper: Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede, Perfect Plum
Stamp: Simply Soft (Hostess)
Ribbon: Marina Mist, Basic Black

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

Hola Amigas! Tuesday we asked the students to bring in a flower for their teacher. They could buy one, bring it from their garden, color one, make one, etc. She received alot of different ones. ALL BEAUTIFUL! Solimar is allergic to flowers (of course). So she asked me to make her flowers. I made a Daisy Bouquet.
Here is the note card set that went with the bouquet.

Apple Day

Hola Amigas. WOW! It's been along time since I have shared with all of you! Believe me I have been truly busy creating. But also not well. Well this week is Teacher's Appreciation Day. We are appreciating Solimar's teacher using all the ideas from the book Teacher's Appreciation Day (GREAT BOOK and FUNNY). So Monday was Apple Day. The students were asked to bring her an apple. She received the first and said Thank You but then they just kept coming...before you know it she has about 20 apples on her desk...She thought it was funny! Solimar is allergic to apples so we made one from yarn. 
 This week I am also gifting her a note card set to go with the them of the day. So here is the one she received Monday.
RECIPE: ALL STAMPIN' UP! (unless otherwise specified)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Real Read
