Taylormadecards4u Teacher Tag Staff Banner Sept 1 2019

Welcome back friends,

Our break is over with Taylormadecards4u and I am excited to get back to work with the rest of the inspirational team!

School has started in my neck of the woods and I have a grandson in Kindergarten! and my youngest grandson will be starting preschool after Labor Day. These last couple weeks have been busy for this Grandma, getting the oldest to and from school , talking about his day with such excitement and a little hint of worry of the unknown. I remember my school days very vividly, I remember favorite teachers, staff, and some not so favorite, teachers, staff, which I have used for my inspiration for my project.

I used the Add On Kit - Teachers Tags which can be found here:Vintage Teacher Tags

I decided to create a Staff Banner. I can remember studying a banner like this at my grade school. The photos on my staff banner has been changed to protect the innocent!

After inking all edges on the tags, with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain, and punching a hole for the ribbon, I then backed my tags with beige card stock, I computer generated my staff names and their titles, which are real names of my teachers and staff that I liked and some I didn't, I let you decide which is which!

I happen to have a set of Tim Holtz Framed Photographs, that I used for my staff photos. I inked all edges again and adhered to the back of each tag, with names and titles.

I had a wonderful walk down memory lane and revisited my first days of school as a grade school student. I was reminded that although those days where met with mixed reactions, same as for my grandson, I thrived and survived !

Thank You for visiting and as always I appreciate your kind comments

Until next time.........

    1. Thank You Janie! It has been a long time for too! I just celebrated 62 this year! However, it is strange the things I remember, They must of left there mar. Mrs Farkas was my elementary school principal, I can;t remember her face, but I can vividly remember her black toe up shoes with a thick heel and hosiery that you couldn't see through. Now why in the neck can I remember that! Thank You for kind comments and I appreciate your continued support. Happy Crafting

  2. What a creative idea! I love your project.
