Head of the Class Blog Hop!

Today is the My Creative Time mini Head of the Class Blog Hop! If you would like to start at the beginning, click here. If you have arrived from Lucia's blog then you are on the right track.

We have 5 stamps and die sets to show you.  Let me warn you, all are an absolute must have!!  They all co-ordinate so well together for not only school theme projects but everyday projects as well!!  
Up first, I'm showcasing the new stamp set, "Write On" ~ so many sentiments in this set!!

Don't you just love it!!!  I made a layout and 2 projects using this set.  I know I could have done more with all the sayings but ran out of time ~ lol!!
Here is my layout. You can see I used a couple of the full sentiments and then used the number stamps for the year as well as the labels for the grades my kids were in.
Also with this layout, the pencil and apple are new dies from "Love to Learn" and the title is the new "Uppercase Fun Dies"!

My Creative Time Products Used:
Write On Stamp Set (new release)
Love to Learn (new release)
Uppercase Fun Dies (new release)
Paper: Simple Stories ~ Smarty Pants

Love this sentiment and what better way to display it than on this super cute notepad holder!  Lovin' the new apple and pencil dies....

My Creative Time Products Used:
Write On (new release)
Love to Learn (new release)
Paper: Echo Park ~ Paper & Glue
Easel Note Pad Holder File: Silhouette

For this project, I found this cute little mason jar drink cup and the colors are perfect for a teacher gift.  I added a tag, filed with candy and now have a cute teacher appreciation gift!

My Creative Time Products Used:
Write On (new release)
Love to Learn (new release)
Paper: Imaginisce 

 For these next 2 projects, I wanted to show you how versatile these new stamps and dies are!  The "Freebie" stamp this month is a perfect saying for a sports layout.  I incorporated the sentiment stamp into my layout and also used the new Number Fun Dies to add my son's football number to the helmet ~ aren't they fun!!

My Creative Time Products Used:
Stay Focused (new release)
Number Fun Dies + Add Ons (new release)
Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle
Football and Helmet cuts: Silhouette

For this last project, I covered a little magnetic note pad.  Isn't this cute for any desk??
