Paper Smooches Falling For You

Back to School Time!

Having two daughters that are school teachers, naturally our conversations have centered around classrooms,  new students and getting up early tomorrow for their first day! My goodness- they work so hard...just to get ready for that first day of school-and the rest of the year!  I decided to make a set of these appreciation cards because I have a lot of teachers to send them to. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for their 200th Celebration..

For today's cards I used my new Paper Smooches stamp set named Falling For You that I got from Inspiration Emporium. (this set also includes fall images as well as Halloween, so it is very versatile) I used a sentiment from a retired Clear and Simple stamp sentiment set about teachers...a classic!  The paper is DCWV Grade School Stack with glitter and foil. Love that stuff!!!  I finished each one off a little differently and added a fun little charm from Inspiration Emporium as well.

 You can see these little charms that say Imagine and Inspire.

I stamped the apple on red dot paper and then restamped the white core part and cut it out and added it on top of the first apple.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards today!


Pin It!

It's true, they certainly do work hard and these cards will make them feel appreciated. Very cute and perfect with the sentiment and papers. School starts already? It's not until after Labor Day here.

Thank you for making teacher themed cards. As you stated, teachers work hard. I am a retired teacher and still support the teachers I taught with. Best wishes to your daughter on her teaching career.

I certainly did enjoy your Apple for the Teacher cards, especially the way you made a sliced-into apple.
Thanks for dropping by my blog. You asked how I got from Oklahoma to Québec; I came here to study French, met a wonderful French Canadian and married him!
