A Teacher Gift That is Rooted In Nature

This month, the theme for the Kylie Bertucci’s Blog Highlights is “Teacher Gift”. As a former teacher, I can tell you, any expression of thanks is appreciated. I thought I’d make something practical that could be used by any teacher. I thought a fall theme would be appropriate. The Rooted in Nature Bundle is just chock full of things that can be used for fall. I dressed up a little notepad and added a “thanks” to it.

Design Notes for Rooted in Nature Teacher Gift:

Did you know that there are some Framelits sets that also have dies that can emboss? Nature’s Promise is one of those sets. If you see a set that has a blue box with some of the dies pictured, you have found one of the sets. (There are lots!)

Rooted in Nature bundle, Natures's Roots thinlits, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com I used a few of the embossing dies to create the leaves in Copper, Soft Suede and (the purple one) from a piece of the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. You can see, there are also Framelits to cut them out.

Covering the notepad was easy. Just a bit of measuring and adhering. I always like to use Tear n’ Tape for something like this that will take a lot of use. I decided to add a little layer of Copper and Soft Suede since I had the room. Here’s a peek at how it all looked on the inside.

The Copper embossed sentiment is my favorite part, but you know how I love heat embossing!

The last touches to add some texture and dimension – some Copper Trim and one of the fabulous Leaves Trinkets.
