Mass Production


Just a quick post tonight. It's that time of year again when cards are needed for those hard working, long suffering teachers. I help out in school so I see all the work that goes on behind the scenes and we are lucky that we have a wonderful Primary school where all the teachers are friendly and welcoming and make you feel included. Although I only go in one day a week I still feel a part of things which is so nice.

Freya has had two class teachers this year who job share. It has worked really well and she has had a great year, there is also a classroom assistant and another lady who takes them for handwriting and reading so plenty of cards are needed.

It was a wet morning here so I got the trusty cuttlebug out and unfortunately I'm not imaginative enough to come up with different cards when they are needed quickly so I mass produced and they will all get the same.

I rubbed some chalk inks over the design, matted onto some free BP that came with a scrapbook magazine, added some organza ribbon and an artylicious greeting and hey presto they were done.

This is great. I really must try this technique with my CB folders. There is nothing wrong with mass producing a design - especially one as lovely as this.

These are lovely! I do occasionally 'mass produce', especially if the result is this pretty! I would be over the moon if I received something like this xxx

Love this big folder, but yet to get it. Like your soft colouring and know it will be appreciated - one of my daughter is a history teacher, so know how much these little gestures mean to them.
