Samantha Walker's Creative Team Blog Hop - Back to School

It is time again for Samantha Walker's Creative Team Blog Hop and giveaway! Samantha Walker will be having a blog hop once a month where her Design Team will be sharing their creations with her brilliant products! If you are coming from the creative genius, Angi Barr welcome! If not, you can start the hop here. I am so excited about the prize because a JustRite Stamps is giving away Samantha Walker's Ooh La La French Frills stamp set! Read on to see how to win.


I think it is important to let our teachers know how much we support and appreciate them on the first day of school. Everyone is nervous the first day, including the teacher! Hey, when I was a teacher I had butterflies on the first day even though I had been teaching for 12 years!

This is the first year my son will be going into school! We are so excited! But, I have to admit, making this project for his teacher make me a little teary-eyed. ;)

My local craft store had these awesome plastic cups. I added a rub-on vinyl monogram to personalize it. I am going to fill it with mints and the note inside the card will say, "You were 'mint' to be my son's teacher."

Then, I got excited to use Samantha Walker's new stamp set for JustRite Stamps called Ooh La La French Frills. I LOVE this set! Each stamp fits perfectly inside Samantha Walker's French Frills Spellbinders die cut set.


To create this card, I used Samantha Walker's Paris Girl Collection with Carta Bella. After adhering the paper to the card, I then used the dies to create this label with red and black cardstock.


Then, I colored the stamped image with Faber Castell Brush Pens. It gives the look of hard blending work, when really I just had fun coloring like a kindergartner. ;)


I then added a little Stickles and rhinestones for that touch of bling!
