School Books

It that time of year again when school books need covering. Some of my friends think that I'm mad because I love doing them.

This year Savannah has stamped on to tissue paper using Scribble This, Rose is a Rose and Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Sets, then I have covered them in clear coverseal.

She has done a great job. I have always done our schools this way, it works out a lot cheaper and are easy to spot their own books and for the teacher also.
Here are Samuel's books

Samuel doesn't go to Montessori on a Wednesday, so we stamped his book coverings,Wednesday project.
He turns 5 early March and is very much excited about going to school.
He has used the Choo Choo (retired) and Animal Stories Stamp Sets. He wanted to use all the stamps in the Animal Stories set so I sponged some oceans for him so he could use the whale out of the set.
He has made a fabulous job his books look so good.


  1. Savannah will be stoked with those, Helen - they don't call you 'CraftyHelen' for nothing do they? Gorgeous!!

  2. very cool Helen! My kids would be stoked with these too

  3. What a great idea they look fabulous

  4. yes so much fun - I hope the other mums see them too & want to know how to create them too!

  5. They look awesome Helen. What a fantastic idea.

  6. I was going to do this with Miss Eight but she couldn't get past the "blingy" coverseal LOL I tell you that holographic sticky stuff is terrible! Next year, we are doing this :)
