One of my favorites in the 2012-13 Annual Catalog, the Storytime Product Suite features vintage style school sketches and colors I love together: Pool Party. Basic Gray, So Saffron, Ridinghood Red, Wild Wasabi, and Pumpkin Pie, along with several others.
Today, as I contemplated (with a large amount of glee, I admit) the fact that school starts in 27 days, I pulled out these products to design a few back-to-school projects. The suite helps everything come together “speedy-quick,” as Junie B. Jones would say. I’m sending the cards in back to school packages…I just can’t decide if the sentiments are more appropriate for the kids or their moms!

I just cut a piece of the paper 5-3/4” tall, leaving it 12” long. I rolled it into a tube and pressed it into the inside of the can. It fit exactly, and took all of 30 seconds to make. It took seven dozen pencils to fill it, if you’re interested.
I’m pretty sure the teachers are not thinking “Hooray!” but too bad for them. I certainly am! Now if I could just find a Big Chief tablet to satisfy the nostalgic longing induced by using these stamps and papers!
