TE Sneak Peek Day 2: Make the Grade, Extra Credit and A La Carte Cuppies!

 thanks owl
Today the Baker’s Dozen and I have 2 sets and 3 A la Carte Cuppies to share with you. 

On my first card, I combined Make the Grade and Extra Credit sets, which were illustrated by Nancy McKinney.  Did you know Teacher Appreciation week is May 2-8?  This set is coming out just in time for you to make cards and projects for your kid’s teachers to show them how much you appreciate all they do!  I remember as a kid I would always love to make something special for my favorite teachers, I crocheted a blanket for my teacher Mrs. Landrock who retired and she loved it. book open On my card, I used Die Cuts with a View Green stack.  I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 7 to make a ‘book’ and here is a view of the inside.  I am a big fan of reading, in fact since I’ve been back in school, I really miss reading!  It really opens up a new world to me just like teachers who share their knowledge with us.  This will be a great set for me to make cards for my college professors too!

awesome teacherHere is a card I made using one of the A la Carte Cuppies called Desk Cuppie that was illustrated by Jessie Oleson.  I used a sentiment from the Extra Credit set.  The paper I used is Cosmo Cricket Ducks in a Row and prism cardstock. Isn’t it cute with the alphabet on it?

I like the "book" on the front of your card, so cute! As I have probably mentioned in the past, the cuppies scare me a little bit, but this pink card is super cute, too!
