Glora's Crafts - Guest Designer Week 32 - Day 3

Wow, this week is flying by. I'm already half way through my Peachy, dream come true, designer spot. For today's back to school project I made some backpack shaped treat containers.



So those are the fronts and here are the backs of the backpacks:

The backpack pattern comes from a Cricut Cartridge called 'Life's a Party'. I first saw this backpack container on my friend, Simply Pam's blog. If you are interested in seeing a video tutorial on it click HERE, and you can go to her blog post.

Now onto the details for each of these...


This one was made using textured cardstock. I cut the container out and then I made my own patterned paper by stamping it with BEAUTIFUL sentiments off of PK-851 Teacher Says! Phrases & Faces. This set is AWESOME. As a mom I am all for having these kinds of encouraging sentiments on hand. I was going with a star theme on this one, so for my home made patterned paper I filled in with some awesome star stamps from Market Street Stamps' 'Blast Off' stamp set. And yes, that darling star in the front is a Peachy Keen Stamp. All I did was cut out a star from George and Basic Shapes at 2.25" and this darling 'You are a star...' stamp fits perfectly inside. 


For this backpack, I started with a basic piece of patterned cardstock. I stamped it randomly with the same 'Teachers Says! Phrases & Faces.' However, I also incorporated a few stamps from Emma's 'My Teacher Rocks!' set. I cut an apple from the Create a Critter cartridge and stamped it with one of the adorable faces that comes with the 'Teacher Says! Phrases & Faces.'

I want you to see just how cute this set is, so here is a picture of it...


I'm not a school teacher, but I think this set is PERFECT. Plus it comes with 3 adorable 'Basic Paperdoll Faces.' Love it!

Okay, I won't keep you any longer for today. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS day! And thank you so much for all your sweet comments. They have been so fun to read! Hugs- Glora

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