Teacher's Gift's Blog Hop starts today!


Welcome to The Crafty Kitten for Joy's Life's 
Teacher's Gifts Blog Hop! 

If you have hopped over from Jennie at Earthy Scrap then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stumble upon this post and want to start at the beginning at Joy's Life, click HERE.

The Design Team has put together some great teacher's gifts made with Joy's rubber stamps.  

Here's what I came up with...a pencil that holds Rolo candy pencils and a post-it note holder for your favorite teacher!




Here's how it goes together.  The pencil is from SVG Cuts and I cut it using my Cameo.



This saying is from Joy's Life's new Tag You're It - Set Two. 


 The post it note holder is super easy to make.  All you have to do is cut a piece of card stock to 3x7".  Score it at 3.25" and 3.75" for a perfect fit.  I used stamps from Joy's Everyday Occasions set.


I had first seen pencils made from Rolo candy at a scrapbook/stamp convention.  I thought it would be cute to put them in their own special box.  Here's a link to how you can make them.  



Now how about some Blog Candy??
Joy has so graciously donated a Tag You're It - 
Set One Stamp Set to giveaway for this blog hop!  That lucky winner is going to have a lot of fun playing with it!
