Thoughtful Teacher Thanks – GDP#045

Did you see my DIY Blackboard Letters yesterday???

Well, while a girl has blackboard paint out – she’s gonna play!  I couldn’t resist painting a piece of thick Whipser White cardstock just to see how it would come up.

And it was beautiful!  And perfect for the colour challenge this week at Global Design Project #045.


I’m getting organised early this year and have started an assortment of cards for things that fall in the second half of the year including thank you cards for teachers.

These little gems have an actual blackboard background so that parents or students can write on the black space using chalk.

Teachers – A Whole Lot of Lovely (& more!)

I wanted to wish all my US followers a very happy 4th July.  A large percentage of my traffic each day comes from crafters in the US!  Thank you for all your support x

In Western Australia, today is the first day of school holidays – a well earned rest for the dedicated teachers working in the education system.  I truly take my hat off to any person who seeks employment in a profession where they are in charge of 20 young & energetic terrors delights for long periods of time!  I love working with kids, but enjoy handing them back after 45 mins!

This was a little present we sent to day care to say a big {THANKS} to the staff for all the wonderful nuturing they do of our little people. “A Whole Lot of Lovely” is a hostess only stamp set that is perfect for sweet messages of thanks.

We also sent a similar set to school for Alexa’s teachers (you may remember the ‘teacher’ card I made using the Layered Letters stamp set).  I wish I’d taken a photo of the set together – the colours from the card matched the lollies perfectly!!!

We’re looking forward to school holidays – sleep ins, play dates and sleepovers at Nanna’s house!!!  A ‘whole lot of lovely’.  Kelly x
