Cre8tivegirl's "FIRST" Blogoversary Hop

Welcome!
I am glad you are joining us today for this amazing hop. Yvette is celebrating her first blogoversary and we are all making "first" projects in her honor.
Click on pictures to enlarge

I have created a card today, but what makes my card perfect for this hop is:
  • It is my first Tri-Fold Shutter card. Yeah for trying a new fold! Although it looks complicated, it is super easy to cut the base. The most time consuming part was layering the papers and adhering.
  • This card is for a teacher who has been transferred from 2nd grade. It will be her first year in 5th grade and at an intermediate level. I have been teaching 5th graders for 11 years, so I know she will love it!
  • This was my first time using this paper stack ~ DCWV High School. I bought it on clearance for $1.99 and thought it would come in handle one day. I love the patterns and colors. Since my son is a Senior this year (for the first time), I will be using it even more!
Other Materials:
red, cream, black, and silver card stock
buttons (red, green, and blue)
gold ribbon
Plantin SchoolBook ~ 1" letters
Locker Talk cartridge ~
First Day of School (p. 32) cut at 2 3/4"
Books (p. 47) ~ cut at 1 3/4"
Pencil (p.37) ~ 1 1/4"

I selected this embossing folder because it was the first time that I bought one that I already owned. Ooops! Tell me if you have ever done that! Have you ever bought some crafting goodies and didn't realize you had one at home. Please remember to leave your e-mail and blog address (if you have one). The winner will be announced Monday evening, Aug. 8th.
Be sure to visit Sherri now. She ALWAYS has amazing projects.
Challenges:
Be sure to come back tomorrow for another "first".

  22. Love your tri-fold shutter card. I have made them before, but have to admit I didn't know that's what they were called. What a bargain finding that paper for $1.99. It sure was perfect for this card. I don't ever recall buying something that I already had. Thanks goodness, hubby would kill me. LOL So glad you could share your card with us at BBTB2 this week.

  25. Georgiana,
    Your card is AWESOME!! Way to go on your trifold!! It came out wonderful. I had no idea you taught 5th grade!! I taught 5th and 6th grade too. I am homeschooling my other two kids this year ( I want to spend as much time as I can with them...time just goes by too quickly). My first son just graduated high school and is leaving for college at the end of this month :( I am SO going to miss him!!! ANYWAY, I love how this came out!!

    Big hugs,
    Michelle

  34. OMG, Georgiana! I LOVE your card. Congrats on your first tri-fold; its' marvelous! So vibrant; great papers and what a deal (love those bargains!!). Oh yes, I've bought duplicates several times; one was an embossing folder that I couldn't remember I had, and I even bought a corner punch that I had and probably just bought a week or so earlier because it was on clearance! Wanted to comment, but no need to include me in your drawing--I have that folder!! HA HA!--Pat
