Crafty Chicks September Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the Crafty Chicks Blog Hop!
This month's theme is Back To School!!
This Hop is sponsored by 3 Girl JAM
Make sure to hop through, comment on all the stops, and sign up for your chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to 3 Girl JAM.
You should have stopped by from Valerie's blog.  If you just happened to stop by, make sure to start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing.
This year my twin daughters started 7th Grade.
Junior High!!
It's only been a few weeks- but life in our house has gotten crazy busy!
We made a couple Teacher gifts but there are a lot of  "Boy Teachers" this year so crafts don't seem as fun for the girls to give.  :(
They do each have a favorite female teacher (thank goodness!) so these still made their way to school!
A fun little bag with lots of colored pens and an apple shaped box filled with candy!

The bag and the box were both from the Silhouette Store
Crinkle Ribbon: 3 Girl JAM
Sentiments:  Pink by Design

One of my daughters went out for Volleyball this year.  
She LOVES it!!
I made her this canvas backpack (from 3 Girl JAM).
I tie dyed it with Fired Brick Distress Ink and used heat transfer vinyl for the volley ball.
It was a hit!

Your next stop is:

Happy Hopping!

  1. Fun teacher gifts! We have only 1 girl teacher, the rest are men! It will be hard this year! Great volley ball bag! Love the color! Carri~Abusybee

  2. Such GREAT projects for the teacher; and I agree with the whole 'male teachers & presents' thing... it's not the same as with the girl teachers ;)

  3. what a super cute bag and box set. love the colors and the volley bag is amazing thanks for sharing.

  4. Really cute projects! I love 3D projects, so fun to make. You`ll have to share the pattern for that apple box!

  5. Great projects! Too funny that you have to rethink the whole girly gift giving when boy teachers are thrown into the mix!

  6. Ohmigosh...I love that apple box! My mom and sis are both teachers...might have to track that pattern down!

  7. Absolutely love these great gifts!

  8. What wonderfully fun teacher gifts! And hey, just because they have male teachers doesn't mean you can make decorative packaging and fill it with candy!! Everyone loves candy!!

  9. Perfect gift for teacher, Julie! I love the bag :)

  10. Love the silhouette store. I'll have to watch for these patterns. they are really cute and aren't too gender specific. Great projects.
