Monday Made It- {7.29.13}

HELLO! It's Monday again (can you believe it?!) and that means MONDAY MADE IT! Woot Woot! :) I love linking up with 4th Grade Frolics because it forces me to take time to craft :) haha!

For my first "made it" I created my very own Teacher Toolbox labels! I am so excited because they took me a VERY long time to get just perfectly sized! I know lots of other people make them, but I couldn't find any that were "just right" for me- well here they are! :) I just love the bright chevron backgrounds by Anchor Me Designs, go check out her TpT store for some CUTE designs and backgrounds! If you would like a copy of these for your toolbox, you can grab them at my TpT store, on sale through tonight! 
{and YES! There is a sheet of editable labels included!} :)

Took a lot of tweaking to get it right, but they are PERFECT! I love the rounded edges, but you don't have to cut them round, you'll still see it even if you cut them out in rectangles!

However, I could be classified as OCD… So I cut the rounded edges :)

I love laminating things!!! 

Does anyone get super excited waiting for it to come out the other side?!? Or maybe I really am just that nerdy! Ha!

{I don't have a picture of the drawer unit put together because I'm waiting on the spray paint to dry! Check back or follow me on Instagram to see a finished photo! @justkeepteaching }

In the meantime, here are a couple pictures of the drawers and their labels! 

#2 Monday Made It!
I also made a sweet Thank You card for my incredible friend that donated all of those classroom supplies that I blogged about last week. If you missed that post, check it out {here}, it truly is heartwarming! :)

I used Lawn Fawn's Sunny Skies stamp set (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE her stamps!? They are amazing in every way possible!) 

I used some Stampin' Up watercolor pencils {LOVE these too!} to give the cute kites some color.

 Aren't they pretty!?

TA DA!!! :) Finished off with some Glossy Accents on the kites and a touch of Stickles on the clouds. Cute right? I always forget how much I truly love card making and the joy it brings people! :)

What do you think?!

Check back tomorrow for my other crafty goods that I've been working on today for Tuesday Tried It! There {MIGHT} (read- 99.9999% chance) that a FREEBIE will be involved! We all love those, right!? 
 Thanks everyone for stopping by!
