Teacher's Pet - August '17




...and with that summer vacation is over and it's back to school!

Time for The 12 Kits of Occasions August kit post. This month our hostess is the fabulous Lisa Elton and what a fun and timely kit she put together for the whole team. Complete with fabulous colours, patterns, die cuts and cute embellishments. I had a lot of fun playing with Lisa's kit keeping my daughter in mind. On Saturday morning we are heading up to Sudbury to move her into her new apartment on campus for year three of Continuing Education. Basically she is doing her Bachelor of Sociology and her Bachelor of Education at the same time. It is a 5 year program and she has three years to go. In the end she will be qualified to teach Kindergarten to Grade 7. So I made a few fun things with the kit to tuck into her bags to be found when she unpacks.

So let's get on to the projects...

This next one is also for the Color Throwdown #458, I was so excited to colour this in primary colours but this sweet little dress just had to be coloured in soft yellows.

Such a fun kit, and you've created wonderfully imaginative projects and cards with it. That darling milk carton is sure to put a smile on your daughter's face! That apple is amazing!

Tracey, I love ALL of your projects!!! Brooklyn will love them, too, especially with her field of study! I go back to work tomorrow -- back to school, still at my age!! Your cards and milk carton projects are all fabulous. Your floral apple thanks card is gorgeous, and I really love the way you used the patterned paper on your last card...such a cute layout! It was fun guesting with you all this month, thanks for having me!

Lisa Elton said...

I was hoping you would make some things for Brooklyn! The school theme should make her happy since she's studying to be a teacher! Everything is so cute Tracey. I like all of the little apple buttons together on the file folder panel. The coloring on your Wish Big mouse is adorable. Lots of sweetness in this post!

Every one of these is so fantastic, Tracey! Love the adorable milk carton and your fun pencils! The apple button design is especially sweet and I adore your sweet mouse! It's wonderful that Brooklyn is studying to become a teacher. She will enjoy any of these darling cards!

Lindsey & Kurtis said...

My goodness, Tracey, did you ever create the most darling things with this kit! I bet she loved each and every one, and I love that you tucked them away as surprises. Your carton is darling and with that and your apple card you have solidified that I really do need Enclosed Apple. It's been on my wish list a few years, but now I know I "need" it. And your little mouse is adorable. Such a sweet card! Oh, you've made me wishing I had more leftovers. I've been browsing through your many, many other posts this evening. You are one talented lady, and I'm so grateful to be inspired by you and uplifted by your sweet words and comments. Grateful for you, friend!
