August 2016 Paper Pumpkin Spoiler Alert Part III- Stampin’ Up! Bold Botanicals

Hi there!  I’m always amazed at how much I can fit into a day.  I thought I kept a busy schedule over the summer, but I added in so much this week and still managed to accomplish a lot.  I will forever be working on time management, however!!  Haha.

Today’s post is the third design of the three included in the August 2016 Bold Botanicals Paper Pumpkin kit.  Keep scrolling to see a photo of the entire assembled kit (minus the envelopes).

August 2016 Paper Pumpkin Spoiler Alert Part II- Stampin’ Up! Bold Botanicals

Good morning!  It’s the first day of school for my students and I’m EXHAUSTED!!  It’s crazy that I’ve kept a schedule all summer of getting up early and being productive, but just being back at work and having so many things to get done has already worn me out.  We had Open House yesterday, so I got to meet some of my new kiddos and see some that are returning from last year.  I’m excited to teach today- even though I’m pretty unorganized.

Anyways, you got to see one of the August 2016 Bold Botanicals Paper Pumpkin designs on Monday, so today I’m sharing the second design.  Stay tuned Friday for the final of the three, and to see a picture of all the final products.

August 2016 Paper Pumpkin Spoiler Alert Part I- Stampin’ Up! Bold Botanicals

Good morning!  Today is my first day of work for the school year and my first day of Fall Semester.  Wish me luck!

I received my August Paper Pumpkin kit last week so I decided to share it with you this week.  There are three designs in the kit and I will be focusing on one design each post this week.  The kit is called Bold Botanicals and the stamp set is a keeper!

Student Welcome Fox Note Card Using Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends Stamp Set

Happy Friday!  I have another creation to share using the Foxy Friends stamp set.  Every school year, I create welcome cards for my students to introduce myself and invite them to our Open House.  I try to make the cards correspond with the classroom theme of the year.  This year, I chose to decorate my room with woodland animals, including foxes, so this stamp set was perfect!

I wanted to keep the design simple for two reasons.  One is that I planned to make about 26 of these cards.  And the other is that I’ve been experiencing a lot of pain in my hands lately and something that required a lot of punching or intricate cutting would not work so well.  I decided to just cut my card stock into 4 equal pieces and use those rather than a folded base.  I needed plenty of room for writing, so having the fox in the corner and a little strip of designer series paper down the side seemed appropriate.  Hope the kiddos like them!

Hello Fox Card Using Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends Stamp Set

Good morning!  It’s been a busy week as I’m trying to get some things done around the house and for work  before the craziness begins again next week!  I sure am going to miss being at home so much!

Today’s share is another card I made using the Foxy Friends stamp set.  I used two paper designs from the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.  This little guy is just too cute!!

Happy Birthday Chevron Fox Card Using Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends Stamp Set

Hi!  I have to apologize for disappearing for the last couple of weeks.  I needed to take a step back from blogging so I could better balance other things going on in my life.  I am back, though I may not be posting as regularly as I did in the past.

Since I last posted, I have spent a lot of time with family, took another trip to Nashville (this time for business), have been helping other meet their health and fitness goals through my coaching business, finished classes (with all A’s!!), and am gearing up for another school year and college semester.

My classroom will have a “woodland animals” theme this school year, and the fox in this set coordinates perfectly with the classroom decor I purchased at the local teacher store.  I will be making “welcome” cards for my students (hopefully today), so I figured I better break this set out and get going.  Here is a birthday card I created.  I used the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack and the Fox Builder Punch as well.  The sentiment is from the B.Y.O.P. stamp set.

Happy Birthday Oh, Gorgeous One Card Using Stampin’ Up! Feather Together Stamp Set

Hi!  It’s Friday- yay!!  My plan is to be super productive today (wish me luck) because my sister’s family will be stopping in this weekend on their way back from vacation and then I only have one more day to get my work done before I leave for Nashville again!

I’m off to a pretty good start as I’ve already completed my workout, walked almost 4.5 miles, worked some on my Beachbody business, and created two cards!  I created the cards for my nieces, whose birthdays are next week!  They will be 17 and 15- WHAT?!?!

This card was inspired by Kaitlyn Zumbach.  I used the Feather Together Stamp Set and cut the feathers out with my paper snips.

More of the Stampin’ Up! July 2016 What a Gem Paper Pumpkin Kit

Good morning!  So remember my post from the other day and how I was looking for things to fit inside the “gem” boxes?  Well, I realized that mini hand sanitizers/holders will fit perfectly in the bigger of the two sizes.  This works out as there are four large boxes and I have four hotel roomies!  I think I will put portion-sized nuts/trail mix in the smaller boxes so each person will get 2 boxes.

Here is the large box with the favor:

This is one of the large boxes closed and decorated:

And here is a side-by-side of both sizes of boxes:
