Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2!

Hi again everyone! It's me again, and I'm back to show you even MORE sneaks of TWO new sets and one of THREE a la carte Cuppie sets!!! These sets are all about school, and aptly named Make the Grade, Extra Credit, and a la Carte Cuppie. The school year is quickly coming to a close, (I'm not ready for that!) and it will be time to start making those teacher appreciation gifts! These sets are sooo versatile though, I had something else in mind. :) I've been wanting to create a bulletin board for my son's room in which he can easily place treasured memories from his class. Ok, he's only in kindergarten, so it's probably MY most treasured memories from his class.... but whatever! :)


I simply bought an artist's canvas and loosely painted it light blue. I then stamped fantastic little inspirational phrases randomly all over AND stamped some great school images, colored with Copics and placed them on top of the kindergarten treasures. :)


I used different colors of ribbon across the canvas and stapled those on the back side. These were perfect for sliding things in easily.

And here we go in it's entirety....you can see a card for teacher in there too!


Ahhh, I really love this project. Behind the picture of Harrison was a little book he made in class about the life cycle of a bug. And on the bottom right was a bookmark he made at Thanksgiving. I also have a glassine bag decorated with the globe image to place little doodads that Harrison will want to save....which means he'll put rocks in there. He has this thing for collecting rocks, OY!!! Also on there is a card for his teacher....can you see it??


Isn't that a great sentiment?! I don't know how Taylor comes up with the cutest, and most appropriate sayings, but I always love them!

And finally, a Cuppie card colored straight from Harrison's hand for teacher! I think she'd probably appreciate this the most...it's so much nicer actually coming from the child, right?! LOL!



Now, I hope you will check out what everyone else has to share with you! A few of the ladies are featuring even MORE card kits available with this release and I can't wait to see!

What a beautiful canvas of memories, Melissa! And OMgosh... Harrison Sauls is about the cutest little guy on the planet! He'll be a heartbreaker someday (probably sooner than you'd like!)! :)

Love the card that he colored for his teacher too...what a special memento that will be.

Karen Motz said...

What a rockin' memo board!!! It's totally amazing and such a wonderful way to display his, er, I mean your favourite mementos!!!!

Carolina said...

Stunning bulletin board...it's almost like a scrapbook in itself. It would be neat to create one every year and just put it aways with all the treassured items for the year. You've really outdone yourself with this project Melissa...simply adorable!!!

BTW ~ my nephew has a thing for collecting rocks too...we can't understand why, but he does everywhere we go!

LOVE your card and I'm sure his teacher will love it too!

Please let Harrison know that he did a wonderful job colorign Cuppie! Too cute for words.
