Back to School

I pulled out some product from PTI
that I bought last year and never used.
I decided to make some Back to School cards
for my grandchildren.

I love the apples and the pencils and,
of course, the gingham!
The inside sentiment says,
the influence
of a good
can never be
Isn't that great!

Is everyone else as messy as I am?
This is my work desk while making these two cards.
It's a wonder I get anything done.
Guess it's time to clean!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Your kind comments are always appreciated.

The Recipe:
PTI Big Apple Die
PTI School Days
PTI Apple Prints
PTI Stitching Garden
PTI Chicken Scratch Gingham patterned paper
PTI Vintage Linens


  1. Great card for back to school for kids or teacher. I can relate with your work space. The saying goes "a messy desk is a sign of a creative mind" But my response is too much mess stifles creativity. I have to stop frequently to clean and straighten.

  2. Great idea to make them back to school cards and I'm sure they will love them. Love the gingham and apples are perfect for back to school. My desk has had those kind of days too.

  3. Sweet cards for back-to-school! Yes, when I'm having fun creating my desk will often look like yours:)

  4. That is a great idea for a back to school card.

  5. Your grandchildren are going to love these, Sharyn! It seems really strange seeing 'back to school' cards popping up in blogland. In the UK the children are just starting their summer holidays. xx

  6. These are great! Of course they make me a bit sad too! I reallllllllllllly don't want to go back to work! I could get use to staying home! Anyways, these are sweet cards for your GK and yes when I'm having fun my desk will often look like yours or worse. I can honestly say....WOW you have a lot of inks!!! LOL

  7. Super cute!! Your grandkids will love them. Makes me want to get busy and make one for my daughter, a fifth grade teacher. Your desk looks no worse than mine when I'm creating.

  8. Oh wow! Everything is right at your fingertips! Love your crafting space! The cards are Fabulous! Love the bright happy colors, the printed apples are so pretty! The kids will love these!

  9. LOVE this, and love the photo of your craft room. Can't create without getting messy. It's the way it goes. And oh my gosh, I don't even want to COUNT how many things I have gotten and haven't used yet. There are not enough hours in the day!!!

  10. It is surprising how many supplies you need for just 2 cards!! Right? And every time I create my craft desk looks just like yours!!


Thank you for your kind comments. I always appreciate hearing from you.
