The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to a special BACK TO SCHOOL blog hop! Gina, along with the Cast and Crew, will inspire you with many fun cards and projects for your favorite student, their teacher or your friends that are in the teaching profession!

To see if you are the winner, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

There are a number of stamp sets from Gina K Designs that you can use to create a welcome, thank you or back to school. Today, our featured sets are Melanie Muenchinger’s Basket Additions 3 and Beth Silaika’s Keep Calm. There are some great stamps to color and the perfect sentiment for Back to School!





It’s not too late to make your project or special cards because students and teachers will be back in the classroom soon, but also need encouragement all semester long! If you do not have these sets in your Gina K Designs stamp collection, visit the Gina K Designs store at  Gina's Store

Here is the projects that I made for today’s hop:

I did not use Beth's Keep Calm set, but her Stippled Nature set:

Stippled Nature set.



For Today, Ive made a bunch of goodies!  I made a little deskstop gift set for a teacher.  I do so understand how crazy the first days are so to me, giving them a gift on the first day, telling them THANK YOU for everything you will be doing in this upcoming year! I used Melanie's Just So Sporty stamp set too, and only realize tonight it was retired!  I apologize for that!  I do so love how the sets work together so well though!  


 And here is a little gift box, made in the shape of a backpack with matching gift card and enevelope:



The Gina K Designs products that I used to create this project are:
