September Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me from Annie's page!  She always has such cute items up her sleeve!  I am still in a whirlwind with the first month of school.  This week I had meetings every day after school and even one in the evening.  This makes for LONG days and lack of brain time.  I did make some super cute projects for this Blog Hop though and I also have some really CUTE cards to share this weekend (featuring Halloween!).  
The pencil holder on the left is for my desk at work.  I am trying to make more things to shawcase our products at work.  The frame I made (see project HERE) has received SO MANY compliments.  It's the perfect way to show non-card items!  The card is a thank you I plan to give a student who thought of me on their trip to Poland (she knew I am polish and brought back some goodies for me).

I bought this cute acrylic pencil holder at Michael's for 40% off (I think it ended up being less than $5).  I made the inserts using card stock, DSP, a punch and a button.  Each side is the same design - showcasing "A, B, C, D" - one on each side.  The Storybook DSP works PERFECT for this as I literally cut them apart and glued onto the card stock!  

This card was made using Storybook DSP.  It's great when you can piece DSP together to make it look soooo cute!  I love how the "It's a Wrap Occasions" stamp set looks so perfect with this paper!  Feel free to continue hopping onto Nancy's page!  She has some awesome projects for you this month!

Great projects Pam. What a great way to showcase Stampin' Up! product at work. I love how the DSP is ready made, no stamping necessary!

Your projects are both over the top amazing! So cute and creative!

Heather said...

Awesome job Pam! Love the pencil holder! Going to have to look for some of those for teacher appreciation week!

What a great way to showcase the DSP! Some people get stuck on how to use larger images in DSP when all they need to do is realize that they can use them as a focal instead of a backdrop. I think your designs will help them see that.
Love both of your projects and think I must now buy this dsp :)

Love your card and pencil holder! I have loved that paper since I first laid eyes on it. But I don't have a school-aged child. So what would I use it for??! But I want it! ;)
