Day 5 GIU Gal - School Days NotePad and Pencil

Hey All,

Hope you are having a wonderful morning or your day is going good. Well today is Day 5, Yep, my last day for Growing In Unity Gal Guest Designer comes to an end. So sad to go but hopefully I will be back again some day. I had such a great time sharing my creations with you all and reading your comments. 😁

As I had said previously Jennifer had sent me a few Unity stamps so I could play along during my week. Well I had received a pencil stamp and wanted to use it but just couldn't think of what to do. My crafty friend Kim had suggested a few things that were just cute but didn't quite workout like I wanted so decided on something a little different, hope you like it.

The Unity Stamp is Good Luck Pencil I just thought this was so cute. With school in session, I thought what a cute idea to send a teacher a notepad. Something she or he could use during the school year.
So here it is. The pencil is so cute, right? And How do you like the little pun? lol
I used yellow card stock, Tim Holtz markers wild honey and barn door 
and from my stash a dark brown marker with silver Liquid pearls to 
make the silver part of the pencil. 

Here is the full view of the notepad. I had the note pads in my stash I had 
bought many years ago from dollar store. I used card stock to wrap them and layered with 
Graphic 45 An ABC Primer Collection. I thought it would be a great paper to go with the
pencil stamp.

Little One Baby Card

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are doing good? It's been a little busy here lately. I am getting ready to move to a new house so been packing but its hard to pack up crafty stuff when you need you need to use it. Right?

Lately it seems like I have been running into a lot of people who need baby girl cards. So here is one I am sharing today for the challenge at International Art & Soul our theme is "Layer It Up".
So I added lots of layers on this little card using Echo Parks "Bundle of Joy Collection". I am also making a mini album as well with this same collection, but that will be shown later in a youtube video, so stay tuned. k

My base is pink card stock, layered with the green stripped paper, polka dot/heart paper using a corner punch only on the right side of the card stock. 
I used stickers from the sticker sheet to embellish the card. Circle sticker placed on top of a circle punched out and little yellow flower, fussy cut the sticker butterfly, placed the sticker banner across the card and layered the words. The button paper I punched with a tag punch and placed a button and sticker "Cute as a Button" on top of the tag and then added the cute little lamb on the bottom. 

 Inside of the Card - Layered the inside of the card with the same papers from the front of the card. 
I used a cut apart and placed little heart stickers on it. 

Paper - Echo Park - Bundle of Joy
Inks - Powder Puff inks - Soft Sage
Accessories - pink button, tag punch, corner punch, 3D foam dots.

I hope you all get to join in the fun challenge at International Art & Soul show us you beautiful cards. Thanks for stopping by.
