To introduce everyone, we are all doing a blog hop today! But don't go anywhere just yet because I still have lots to show you today.

I needed to make some teacher gifts this weekend since my kids finish up school this Tuesday. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! So I pulled out my favorite new OCL set called Bookworm! It's just perfect for teacher gifts & it just happens to be the OCL Spotlight Set of the Week for this week!

When I started stamping this gift set, I really wasn't sure how it would end up. I had lots of ideas going, but I'm thrilled with the final projects. I made these great lunch type gift bags with little tags on them (I LOVE THEM!).

Then I made little note tins that are filled with cut up pieces of notebook paper for scrap paper. Two of the tins read, "Note of Thanks" & the other two tins I made say, "Just a Note".

These are the Thank You cards I made to go with the cute little ensemble. I love the lined & scalloped notebook paper by Creative Imaginations & the Cursive pattern paper from Imaginsce.

Also in the teachers bags are some gift card holders. Along with the Bookworm set, I also used the solid apple from the set called Swingin' By ~ it's a great addition to this gift card holder.

I've been working in the school library all year, so I decided to make a little gift for the librarian too. She is so much fun to work with. We have not only gotten a lot done this year, but we had a good time in the process! Rather than a card, I made a bookmark and wrote on the back.

Not only did I get all this stuff made on Sunday, but I also made 13 teacher Thank You cards! My dear daughter is graduating 6th grade and wanted to give cards to ALL of her teachers over the last 7 years ~ OH MY! I'll share those cards later this week.

Well... are ya still with me? I have just a few more quick announcements.
There is a fun new June Sketch Challenge over on the OCL Forums ~ join in, we'd love to see what you come up with! And, there is a new OCL 5 + 1 Swap for all you talented swappers out there! Go take a look!
OK ~ NOW you can go hop along to all the other designers blogs!

Congratulations on your new leadership opportunity. I know OCL will benefit from your efforts. They are such an AWESOME company and now they will be able to get the word out to more stampers!!!

Also, I ADORE your teacher gifts. I bet the teachers are going to hate saying good bye to Megan. She's such a sweet heart....I love that boy of yours, too!!

Amber (bambi64) said...

You were a busy little worm, weren't you? wow!! Love all those gifts. You were so much better than I was this year. My teachers only ended up with thank you cards but it's cause school ended so much sooner for us that I ran out of time!!

Great to be working with you, so excited!
