School Days

Isabella had Mrs. Reilly for 2nd Grade

Sophia had Mrs. Rufo for Kindergarten

Since today is the first day of school, I thought I'd share these collages I made for the teachers last school year. We presented the teachers with these gifts on the last day of school. They loved them!

Keep in mind that picture quality is not great as I used the camera on my cell phone.

I used my Cricut, ZooBalloo and Locker Talk cartridges to cut the letters and images. Paper is DCWV Grade School 8 x 8 Paper Stack and regular primary colored cardstock. I collaged on a canvas panel and used Mod Podge as my sealer and finish. We had the kids in the class sign a mat and put the finished product in a black frame, no glass. 

Well I'm off to get my girls ready for their first day as a first and third grader!


  1. Those are wonderful! i made similar frames, but never thought to get the kids to sign around the frame. What a great idea! TFS


  2. I'm so excited to be a part of the CCC Design Team with you! Woo-Hoo! :) Janis

  3. Cute project for any teacher. TFS.
    Congrats on being on the CCC design team. It will be great to see your projects you make.
