Fall-I-Days Blog Hop

Welcome to the Watercooler Llamas Fall Blog Hop! This hop will feature projects from 9 bloggers covering all the fall occasions. I hope you'll take a few minutes to follow the trail and visit all the bloggers because I know you will find tons of inspiration along the way.

This is actually the first stop on the tour. At the end of my post you will be able to click a link to take you to the next great designer, but you can also use this link to go to our homepage where all the participants are listed.

Here in Austin, school will be starting again in just a couple weeks (can you hear the glee in my voice?). Today I'll be sharing a couple projects I'll be featuring in a class next week to start the school year off right.

The first project is an adorable little backpack. Perfect for filling with a few special supplies or a tasty surprise snack, it's sure to put a smile on your student's face. The top stays securely closed thanks to a magnetic clasp and the front pocket is perfect for a special note.

How about a little something for the teacher? This cute pencil card is quick and easy and features the Stripes Embossing folder, Tasteful Trims die and the 3/4" circle punch.

My final project is the coordinating Post-It note holder. There isn't a staff member at school that couldn't use one of these!

Put the whole ensemble together and you are sure to have a successful school year! If you aren't able to attend the class, you cam purchase the tutorial for these projects, complete with photos, by selecting School Tutorial from the list under Upcoming Classes on the sidebar.

Now it's time to hop on over to see what Debbie has in store for you! Thank you for taking the time to stop here. Please leave me a comment (top of post) and then enjoy the rest of the tour.
