Ready for School?

Are you ready for the start of the school year? Do you make teacher appreciation gifts for the beginning of the school year? Here are some ideas using the newly released A+ Darling set from Clear and Simple Stamps. It is the Stamp of the Month for August which means you can get a $1 off by entering: DTBlog809
How about a magnet or a magnet attached to a jar of goodies? I used my Nestabilities to make a frame out of chipboard that I sponged with some Vintage photo Distress ink then attached a piece of black cardstock behind it to look like a chalkboard. I stamped the sentiment with Colorbox pigment Frost White and embossed it. The apple was stamped on white cardstock, cut out and mounted with dimensionals. If you want something more than just a magnet, how about clipping the magnet to a cute little jar of goodies?
There are so many possibilities with this set.
