Teacher Retirement Gift

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  It poured rain here for the weekend and got cold enough to turn on the furnace!  It snowed on the mountain peaks!  Anyway,  my daughter had her last day in 3rd grade on Friday.  Her teacher was retiring from teaching, so I decided to make her a mini-album.  I made this little video to show you how it turned out.  I used the Cardz TV Stamp set "School Days."  I just love this set!  The papers came from a cute Recollections paper pack from Michaels.  The apple is from the Doodlecharms cartridge.  The apple was cut out at 3 1/2 inches and for all of it's parts.  I put an Action Wobble on the back of it.  I used EK Success punches for the sentiment mats and the corners on the front.  I bought the sticker's at Michaels.  The ribbon came from my ever growing stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would really love to hear from you.


  1. Wow, that is an awesome mini album. I do hope you put the instruction ou there. I'm very interested in knowing how to put one of them together. tFS!

  2. What an awesome, awesome mini album Laura! I just love how it opens and keeps opening!! You have decorated it so well, loved the stamps sentiments from Mary's stamps-so perfect and loved all the stickers you used as well. A perfect way to use those stickers that we all still have. You can bet I will be watching this over and over trying to copy this idea! lol I'm sure your DD's teacher will cherish this mini! It's always sad to see a great teacher retire, but happy to see them go on and enjoy their years in retirement. Great job my friend!

  3. That is a great mini album. Beautiful job. Thanks for sharing

  4. Oh how wonderful! And what a great memory for your daughter's teacher! I hope that you do post the instructions sometime soon. I would love to try to make one of these. They look so fun! I've been following you by email for a while now but today I became one of your "Royal Followers" :)
