Artisan Award card #2



Happy Friday evening! Just popping in to show another Artisan Award card...this one is a gift card holder. If you peek behind the polka dot window sheet placed behind the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, you will spot an Anthropologie gift card...with a $0 balance on it, of course! At the Artisan dinner I asked Shelli if she was involved in the judging, because I used that gift card to subliminally influence her to pick me! lol! (She has admitted on her blog So Shelli to loving that store and shopping there frequently.) She laughed, but said, no, she was not involved in the judging.


Well, even after working last Saturday and Sunday and late every night this week, looks like I'll still be heading back to my classroom tomorrow. It may have something to do with the fact that I'm partially obsessive-compulsive (is that possible? partially?) and that I spent too much time using the Big Shot for certain projects, but oh, did they ever turn out cute! Here are a couple of "before photos" and there are more on my flickr page here, if you want to check them out. It's a HUGE L-shaped room with lots of windows and light, I'm loving it! I'll take some "after pictures" when I'm done and share them too.




Okay, that's it for tonight! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Fabulous card, Angie! I'm SO jealous of all your windows...my room is an interior one, so no windows at all for me. *sigh*

Gorgeous card, Angie!!!!

As for the classroom - that just can't be a public school...is it???? If it is, I need to move my kids to where you teach. No cinder-block walls and everything in gray. Good luck with the school year!!

I love your Shelli story! hehehe. The gift card holder is so fun and fabulous! I love seeing the gift card through the window, the offset tag, and wide ribbon bow.

Your room is so new and pretty looking. I love a classroom with a lot of light. My 2nd classroom was an "L" shape too. I loved it! We also had a room off of it when the kids needed a break from each other.

Your card is gorgeous, but wouldn't that constitute as bribery? In that case you can hand the award over to me. Hahahahaha!

Kristin said...

Oh my gosh, ANgie!! Your Artisan projects are amazing!! No wonder they chose you- and so neat that you got to meet and chat with Shelli! Congrats again, and good luck getting ready for school. My kiddos started this Wednesday and I was so not ready, but already getting into the swing of things I guess.

Wow! Can't wait to see what you do with that classroom! It's beautiful. My new room is bright and clean but kinda small :( I'm off to set it up on Monday. Hope you have a great start to your year!

This is a fabulous card! I love how you hid the gift card, with just a little bit of a peak through the window panel...

Love how you colored the sentiment letters in various colours, too!
