Jammin' Teachers

The past few days have been really busy but they've also been really FUN! On Saturday, we were at The Happy Scrapper's Jam and I saw a lot of people there, so talented with their ideas. I think the only bad thing about that day was that the Dessert Buffet tables were DIRECTLY in front of our booth, talk about teasing us!
Besides the french fry box owl, we did two card make & takes. Chris & Christy from Crafts in the City came up with these two really cute designs using punches.

This Halloween card used glitter papers and Martha Stewart fence and bat punches. That's a HK sizzix die and they made their own witch's hat. I thought using the raffia for the broom was a clever idea!

This turkey card is all circle punches and the oval for the body. The little heart cut in half is used for the waddle and the beak. Those cute pumpkins are actually the MS apple punch!

On Monday, we were representing at the Oahu Teachers' Institute Day. I always love going to this because I get to see a lot of my friends.We had some make & takes for them to do. We try to help the teachers relate craft projects to the Standards that have to be taught to the students, a lot of basic math and geometry can be applied.

Here they are using the Bind-it All to make a desk top calendar. Sorry, not a good picture of the project. You can barely see it towards the left.

Anyway, just wanted to share our Crafting in the Community adventures with you all. Happy Crafting!


  1. I LOVE the HK witch, what a clever idea! Looks like you had a lot of fun!

  2. Joy it is wonderful that you go out into the community to teach the teachers so that they in turn can teach the students. What a fun way to learn. Is anything like this happening in Hilo? Keep up the good work! (Love the sparkly Hello Kitty outfit and the raffia broom!)
