Joy's Life Teacher Gift Blog Hop!

Hello  ... thank you so much for joining us today for the Joy's Life Teacher Gifts Blog Hop.  If you just came over from the very talented Laura's blog, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stop by today, please join in on the fun and start from the beginning at Joy's Life.  There is LOTS of great inspiration along the way, as well as AWESOME blog candy!!  Woo Hoo!!

Today I am sharing a fun project that I have made for both of my DD's teachers over the years.  The teachers always LOVE this little gift and I always LOVE how easy it is!!  :)





I used two of Joy's new stamps from the set TAG YOU'RE IT - TWO






All you need for this project is a clear acrylic frame (got mine at the Dollar Tree), some pretty paper, a post it note pad, some strong adhesive to hold the pad, any kind of embellishments you would like, vinyl for personalization, a pen (optional) and of course, some of Joy's awesome stamps for the perfect sentiment!!

Now for the SUPER yummy blog candy! 
The winner of my blog hop candy will be able to choose ANY (in stock) stamp set of their choice from Joy's Life!!  How awesome is that!!!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, along with a way to contact you, and be a follower of my blog.  I will be post the winner on Tuesday!!

I hope you enjoyed my project today, now it's time for you to hop on over and see what fabulous project Megan will be sharing.

Here is the line up:

  3. This is one of my favorite ideas ever! I've made altered clipboards but never thought of using clear acrylic frames. That is so smart and the result is so adorable. The note pad is perfect and so cute with that stamp on it. I think stamping it really completes the look. Your bloom and grow flower? SO CUTE! I love your project. <3 Thank you for being part of the blog hop!
    Super hugs,
    ~Joy~
