A Back to School Project!

Howdy friends! Today was the first day of school, all 3 of my kids had a good day, they all had nice teachers and friends in class and only a little homework. I, on the other hand, had homework. Beginning of school year paperwork to fill out, my goodness, I mean they have been enrolled in this school 5 years now, why do I need to do this each year (times 3 kids) hello, computers!?!  But I got it done and if that is my biggest complaint today life is pretty good! So, last night when I made out the kids lunch slips and lunch money checks I noticed that I was running low on envelopes so I thought I would make some cute lunch money envelopes to send in:

I used pages from old books that were in bad shape and headed to the dumpster before I rescued them.  I used my new Kreate-a-lopes to make the envies, stamped on them and done! Here is a video to show you how, it would have been shorter if not for my gabbing:)

I did want to mention how awesome the Kreate-a-lopes were and how nice the inventor of the templates is. If you want to help him grow his business of envelope and other innovative crafting templates you can visit his Kickstarter page here. Here are a few envelopes I made in seconds with the Kreate-a-lopes I have:

Of course during my envelope binge today I misplaced my A2 templates…you know what that means, time to clean the craft room.  Unless I get distracted by something shiny which will probably be the case since I made like 20 glitter rainbow resin pendants today…oh wait, I bet it is stuck to something with resin! Fun fact, you can clean unfortunate resin spills with nail polish remover (don’t ask me why I know this…) Luckily these template are very durable LOL! Wow, another rambling tangent today, go figure.

  1. Ug, back to school paperwork for parents….I will be doing ours next Tuesday…..and I ask myself the same questions about why in this day and age of computers do they still need these cards filled out every year.

    Lunch money envelopes are very cool. 🙂

  2. Great idea to use old books. I guess it would be fun to have a template instead instead of tearing apart an envelope and tracing it!

  3. re lost template. I thought I had lost part of my A2 dies from Spellbinders and found it stuck to the back of a piece of magnet I had on the counter. time for me to straighten up too. I use those rectangles more than anything else.

  4. Lindsey, I sure enjoy your posts. Many years have passed since I had to juggle kids and school and work and still be human. You brought back great memories of those days. Kinda miss them. Thanks for sharing! And all your videos and tips.
