Welcome to my stop on the Catherine and Cathy Create Back to School Blog Hop!
You should have come from Megin Gallagher's blog if you are following in order.
It's getting closer, the kids are heading back to school soon!
I've enjoyed being home with them this summer. When they go to school, I'm going to look for a new job. So before I do I am crafting up a storm.
I like to make presents for the teachers at the beginning of the year that can serve as a year long memory saver. A place to jot down funny things that the class did, or the pictures taken in school. Last year I made an envelope book each. This year I was thinking apples.
Using cherry cobbler ink on whisper white card stock I created lids and exploding box bases. Smooshing ink on my craft mat I gave the paper a bit of colouring, then added stamped images in Bravo Burgundy.
The inside is only slightly embellished as I won't know their teachers names until the day before school starts, or even the first day. I want to personalize them when I find out.
Now you are off to the last stop on the hop, Cathy Caines' blog.

With the 12th Doctor Who Doctor to be named on Sunday I'm showing it again. My son dressed as 11 for a school "character" day, and in my book Domonik's version (or 11.5 as we like to call him) will always be my favorite Doctor.
Gotta love his Lego Sonic Screwdriver he created. I found the TARDIS printable on Pinterest.

Well my brother is getting married next year. I usually avoid all the weddingy stuff on Pinterest, but now I'm peeking jic I'm needed lol. So when I came across these cups and saucers while preparing for my bestie's visit I had a vision of sorts.
What a lovely centrepiece these would make.
I collect teapots and the like, so I have a few to work with.
I started with the cardstock stuff that keeps the paper packs all crisp in the packaging.
Then inked my large love roller stamp in "perfect plum".
And punched out my tag, inked the edges.
I also stamped a sentiment and punched ovals. I love the chip numbers, even if they are older stock. I covered in my black ink. I think I may need to get the "typeset alphabet Bigz" dies. They would work perfect for this!
I had some pearls to add some wedding glitz.
