So on to my items in which I used the ALL ABOUT SCHOOL stamp set that Regina graciously gave to me to use. Please enjoy these crafty creations.

First is a charming large clothes pin that I picked up at AC Moore for 1.00! As soon as I saw it - I thought I had to add the ruler from the set I used.
I first painted the item in Americana Red paint.
Then Mod Podge the ruler image on. Let it dry and did another layer of Mod Podge.

I love it! And hope you will give it a try.

The second items are book marks.
I used a scallop punch to punch out the sentiment and added a red heart to the center.
Used my Stampin' Up office punch to create a little notebook paper for my niece to write down what books she read.

The third item is a post it note pad cover. I printed the image onto yellow card stock. Adhered it to a piece of card stock measured at 8 1/2" x 3 1/4". Scored at 3 1/8", 1/2", 3 1/8".
I adhered the 3 x 3 sticky note pad and folded it up into a little keeper. I added a fab SU! ribbon and a button in the shape of a crayon. The inside was a little plain so I added a Tim Holtz label.

Now on to my Blog Candy. To win the following you MUST be or become a follower and leave a comment on THIS post.


I am entering this in a few challenges as well - one is back to school items at Paper Garden Projects and at The Sisterhood of Crafters - anything but a card. At a new blog I found - Bee Crafty whose theme is anything goes as long as it's a digi.

I adore the clothes pin, then again, I have a weakness for them. I have a giant one I use for recipes, and one of my teachers used to use one in her class so we knew what activity was next on our schedule...
