Teacher Appreciation Blog Hop

Welcome and thank you for joining us at Jen’s Craft Corner Teacher Appreciation Blog Hop!   You should have arrived here from .  If you just happened to stumble upon this hop, please be sure to go back to Jen’s blog so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects we have to share!
 Being a teacher myself, I definitely love today's theme!  There are so many teachers who work so very hard to help our kidlets get the most from their educational experiences!  It is great to show them a little love now and again!!  I have two quick and simple projects for you today.   Both can be made with kids (or without) and would definitely be appreciated by any teacher!!!  Hope you enjoy!

I used the reverse embossing/inking technique with this bookmark.  Using clear embossing powder I stamped the letter background, and then sponged the blue ink over top.  I love this technique as it always looks different and is impossible to mess up!  I have a great group of kids this year and we share a common interest/love of reading, so this gift is a bit after my own heart!!  

Note Card Set
I love having fun little note cards to send home with students, and thought these turned out really cute!  Super simple to put together as well!  

Thank you so much for joining us for today’s Teacher Appreciation Blog Hop!  Your next stop is!  
Please leave a comment.  I love to hear from you!!
Here is the lineup in case you get lost :)

Bookmarks are a definite supply you can never have enough of in the class! I like those notecards, but I don't think I would ever want to use them since they are so cute. :)

I have to agree with Georgiana the notecard a are too cute to be used. Love the idea of a bookmark, it will go great with the B&N gift card for my daughter's teachers.

I love how you used the white ink on your card. It really stands out wonderfully! Also, I would love to know more about that first technique you described. A tutorial would be excellent ;)
