A Goody Bag, Layout, and Candy fun from Melanie

Melanie Jarocki has some fun projects today for gift ideas and a layout too!  She used School is Cool, since it is THAT time of year!!

Thanks So Much Goody Bag

I love the journaling cards in the School is Cool line. This bus one was perfect to add an SRM sentiment to thanking our bus driver with a bag of cookies. The bus punch-out was a great finishing touch. I tied the bag off with twine from The Twinery. 

First Day of School Layout

My son's first day of kindergarten. He was SO excited, not only to go to school with his older siblings, but to also get to ride the bus AND take his lunch to school. What a great way to celebrate this special day with School is Cool's fun graphics and primary colors.  For a little pop, I backed the Blue letter stickers with white photo paper to help them stand out from the white background. And you know I love banners--so to mix things up I put punch-out pennants with pennants cut from the pattern paper. Twine from The Twinery and Fabri-Tac glue from Beacon Adhesives  keep the banner in place. 

You're The Best Tube and Card

This ensemble is a fun way to say thank you to a teacher. I added some Reese's Pieces in the tube and topped it off with the award ribbon punch-out. The matching card includes another journaling card from the line, along with SRM sentiments and twine from The Twinery.

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope Melanie gave you some fun gift ideas for those that take care of your little ones during the school year.  Be sure to visit Melanie's blog also!

And don't forget Nikki's card kit available for purchase this month!! It is AMAZING!!
