Rolo Pencil - back to school

It is that time of year again when everyone heads back to school. The smell of new shoes, pencils and chalk. Don't you just love it? I am getting pretty excited about the kids heading back to school. We are ready for a routine again. I always enjoy seeing them grow and learn. So the other day my daughter, Kinsley, helped me put together these cute little Rolo Pencils for their teachers on the first day of school. Aren't the cute? What made these little babies come together so smoothly is the new Simply Scored 122334 coming September 1st in the Holiday Mini. This is a must have. I was able to score all the lines on the pencil in a snap. I also used the Round Tab Punch 119864 to make the cute little apple core.

Happy Back to School!

Cute little bags & Tins

Here are all the adorable little tins and bags my sister Melissa helped me put together. If you would like to purchase any of these tins or bags I am selling them at cost. I bought in bulk when I had a booth at a local bazzar, but am now trying to declutter my stash. I will have them at my neighborhood yard sale on Saturday, August 27th if you would like to get them then. You can also give me a call and come by. I just love these little kids from the Greeting card kids (c 120633). I also used the Just add cake DSP (124339).

This little tin turned out stinking cute and just perfect for any girls BFF. I used the Flirtatious Specialty DSP (122360) and the Best Friends Forever stampset (W 122805).

I also used the Melon Mambo Embossing Powder (123223) on the BFF. This picture does not do it justice. It is SOOOOO Pretty.

This little pail would make such a cute birthday gift or party favor also would go great for back to school just change the words. I used the Just add cake DSP 124339, the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch 122361, and the Fabulous Phrases W117002.

Here are our cute little Greeting Card Kids 120633 again. I just love them. I love how vintage this one looks. I added in some raffia and did lots of sponging. I also used the must have new 1/2" scallop dots ribbon in Cherry Cobbler 124138 and Chocolate Chip 124142.

This cute little 4oz round tin is filled with erasers perfect for back to school. We used the Blossom Bouquet Tripple Layer Punch 122464 and the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack 118309.

These cute little mini lunch sacks are so fun and easy to decorate. I have both the white shown here and the kraft shown below. Here we used the new 2011-2013 In Colors in Calypso Coral 122939, Pool Party 122938 and Lucky Limeade 122935 to stamp the flowers from the new set Raining Flowers w122767. I really love these fun new colors. I also added some of the new 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Calypso coral 122976. This ribbon comes in all 5 of our new in colors.

I used lots of fun retired products on this little bag. You have to cut the mini lunch sack down to fit. I also used the Top Notes die 113463 and the Fun Flowers Die 121812.
