Still Addicted to Vista Print

I have shared my love of Vista Print with some of my colleagues and they have become just as addicted as me. We are a bad influence on each other, too. Every time they show me something they've made, I want to go and make/order more stuff, too. Here are some of my latest projects.

I got this idea for a rubber stamp from a colleague. I plan to use this on practice worksheets I sometimes send home with the students.

Here's another idea inspired by some of my fellow teachers. Next year we will be doing math stations in addition to literacy stations so I thought it would be good to have this small banner posted. Gotta love the giraffe print, too!

I "borrowed" this idea from something I saw in a catalog and thought it would do well on the small car magnet. I also found a cute stuffed turtle in the "2.50 section" at Target to go with it.

I usually print "Fun Friday" reminders on my printer so I thought I would let Vista Print do it for me with these small postcards. They are cute, colorful, and will last me for the next few years.

I saw this cat themed Premium Business Card template and knew I had to make something out of it. A homework pass seemed to be the perfect idea for this template. :)

I'm sure I will be visiting Vista Print more this summer. Stay tuned!

I'm Working on My Summer To Do List...

I have already started my to-do list for this summer and it is growing every day. Every time I see a cute idea, I have to add it to my list. :) Here's a few craft ideas that have caught my eye as I have been reading some of my favorite blogs.

At Paint in My Hair she has this awesome tutorial, The Undercover Crate, for making fabric covers for plastic crates. I have the crates and just bought some cute jungle themed fabric. I can't wait to make these for my classroom.

I love this Dessert Stand idea using terra cotta pots. So cheap and cute! Take a look at A Girl and a Glue Gun for other creative terra cotta pot ideas.

Check out this fun idea for a Library Bag from Lulu's Tiles. I've been learning how to do applique in my quilting class and love finding cute, applique ideas. I think the owl is so adorable and this is a perfect project for me since I am always toting my books to/from the library. Also, I'm sure I have everything I would need to create this project so it's FREE! Even better!!!
