Glora's Crafts - Guest Designer Week 32 - Day 1

Hello, Peachy Keen Friends. Today is the first day of my guest designer spot for Peachy Keen Stamps and I'm thrilled. When I realized that my Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week and the start of school (in my neck of the woods) would coincide it seemed only natural to plan 'back to school' projects. At the time I didn't realize how popular that theme was going to be this month. Nevertheless, I'm VERY excited to share with you some fun projects that I made with a 'back to school' theme in mind.

Today, I have one of my favorite kinds of cards to share with you. I call it a spinner card and was originally inspired to make this kind of card when I saw THIS card on Nikki (Scrappin' Navy Wife's) blog. I have a picture tutorial for this kind of card HERE if you are interested in making one of these yourself. If you do make one, let me know I'd love to come and see it!

So here is the first face of my back to school girl:


I had to start with this sad face because I have to admit that the very first day of school can be scary or sad at first for the child (in my case for the MOM)! But don't worry because it gets better, as you turn the dial...


You  get a smiley face. Yes, the little girl finds out that school really is fun and she is having a great time (and that makes this whole school thing easier for Mom too) and then turn the dial one last time and we find...


This little girl leaves school SO happy and she is super excited just thinking about the next day!

Don't those darling faces just bring this girl to LIFE?! I seriously LOVE my Peachy Keen Stamps to pieces. For this project I used one of my favorite sets called Wide Eyed Kids. I also used the adorable Princess Face stamps.

The darling Back to School sentiment is from the My Teacher Rocks! stamp set by My Creative Time as well as that cute stitched circle in the corner. It is from the Scallop and Stitched Circle Die set (I just cut it down to fit in the corner).

Here is a VERY short video just showing how the card looks as you turn the dial. If you are interested in the picture tutorial on making this card click HERE.



The prize for this week, which was generously donated by Peachy Keen Stamps, is the new Winter Wonderland Face Assortment.


If you leave a comment here and on my home page Glora's Crafts (HERE) each day this week, you will have up to 10 chances to win these adorable stamps. I will be drawing the winner on Saturday, August 27th. Good luck and thanks for stopping by today! I hope to see you tomorrow! Hugs- Glora

Love the outfit and those faces are perfect for showing the emotions that go throught a little one's face when a new year starts. I have to say I as a teacher also feel that way.
The night before school is to start I get very little sleep. And to think I have been teaching 15 years now.

The spinner dial is a cute idea. My daughter was looking forward to the start of her sophomore yr of college. Was harder this time leaving her after we moved her into her 1st apt (she lived in dorm the 1st required yr) since an apt is a bigger step towards independence & responsibility.
