Kraft Grid Journal Teacher Gift

Do you need a quick and easy teacher's gift?  Stampin' Up!'s Kraft Grid Journals are just the ticket. The journals come 2 to a pack and they're only $4.95!  

Here I used the Tap Tap Tap stamp set and stamped it with VersaMark on Whisper White card stock.  I then embossed with Black embossing powder and colored in with Smokey Slate and Black markers.  
Then comes the fun part...fussy cutting.   No need for fretting...this fussy cutting is a breeze.  

Every teacher deserves a shiny red apple, right?  To make this little apple I used the Flower Shop stamp with the alphabet on the petals.  I did my "double dipping" method of embossing with VersaMark and Real Red ink.  Once it was dried I punched out the flower,  used the 1/2" Round punch and punched out the center and then fussy cut one of the petals to be the apple.   The leaf was taken from the Bird Builder punch and the stem was just a scrap.  

Here is a close up of the typewriter and apple.  In person, the typewriter, apple and "hi" have a shine from the embossing which looks marvelous! 

I made this sweet envelope for the journal and dressed it up with the burlap ribbon belly band and punch art apple.  The apple was made using the third from the smallest of the Hearts Collection Framelits.   With the Envelope Punch Board (EPB) upside down,  align the point of the heart evenly in the punch part of the EPB and punch.   Using your paper snips, round the sides to make a more "apple" like shape.  Run your apple thru the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots TIEF folder.  To finish off the apple, use the Bird builder Punch to make the apple stem and leaf.  Staple the burlap ribbon around the envelope and glue the punch art apple over the staples.
