Some Exciting News!


I'm thrilled to announce that I have been chosen to be a member of the newly created PSA Stamp Camp Design Team! You can read the announcement here on the stamp camp blog, and read more about PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps here.

I find myself on a team with a couple of my blogging buddies - Jennfer and Carly - as well as many new acquaintances. Libby is still announcing all the members over at her blog.

Here are the projects I submitted as my application for the design team and they were posted on the Stamp Camp Blog on October 5th to celebrate World's Teacher Day.

I made these magnets stored in a little tin using the set PSA - Super Star. The circles are mounted to a magnet sheet (I used my Krylon Machine with the magnet/laminate cartridge) so these can be used to hold those 'ever so special' school papers that come home every day on your fridge for all to see!
I even stamped on the twill I adhered around the box. The tin is from Papertrey Ink.
For my second teacher project I decorated a purchased First Aid kit that I got at the Dollar Store.
I used the PSA set Hello Kitty - School Days for the image - the heart circle framing is from the PSA set - UBU Dress Up. I used my Brother Label maker for the sentiments, added some papers to cover the label and tied a bow!

Here's what came in my little kit. Perfect for teacher to have on hand for all those little 'boo boos' that happen during the school day.

My last project was decorating a purchased note pad. I got this on sale at Staples for $1.oo (!) It already had all the M&M's printed on the cover.


Again - I used the PSA Hello Kitty School Days set. (the sentiment is Papertrey Ink)

So there you have it - some easy, fun gifts for teacher!
You can buy PSA stamps on line or at stores near you .


Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you are having Columbus Day off tomorrow - I do (Yippee!) - and I know there will be some extra stamping going on in my craft room!!! How about you???

way to go, Julia! I know you will be a valuable asset ti the team. I really like the boxes you have been creating recently. A question, though. How do you stamp on twill..the times I've tried, it has bled into the twill and looked smeared.

Congratulation Julia!!! So well deserved! After seeing your adorable creations (especially the Hello Kitty ones OMG!!) I had to go and check them out. Do you know if you can color in with Copics since you have to stamp with their ink?
