Vistaprint... AGAIN!

Can I join my own Vistaprint linky party?  How about a support group for Vistaprint addicts?

Yesterday I made my third order... it was half off uploads and 10 free items!  I had to pay shipping... which is a bummer... but look what I made!

A few of these items are ones I forgot to share last time and, for some reason, two of the items wouldn't let me copy the preview picture, so you can't see those!

Ok- tote bag with my new school's name on it!  :)

Small poster which I'll cut apart to display directions...

Our 3rd grade team is going to call our take home folders FALCON folders since that is our school mascot.  I made these reminder postcards for kids who forget their folders at home!  I love how they turned out!

Small magnets- I'll cut these in half and do *something* with them... I hear dry erase markers will wipe off of them, so maybe something with that.  I don't know yet.

Prediction sticky notes...

Small banner... I'll cut it in half and have two banners!

LOVE this- I saw this idea originally at Queen of the Click's blog when she linked up for my Vistaprint linky party.  I used the large poster (which wasn't free, but only $9.99) and designed this template which... I hope... will be the right size!  I will write a question about our reading and students will respond by placing a sticky note with their answer on the square with their student number! 

Free t-shirt!  I paid extra to get it in gray... but this is my first official piece of apparel for my new school!  :)

I can't take credit for this idea, but I can't find who originally did it- this stamp was a freebie and a quick way to let parents know that I'm not ignoring their note or request, but just didn't have time to give it a thorough reply!

Thank you post cards!

Another banner- I already have this one at home in my possession from my first VP order... just forgot to show it to ya!

And this is probably what I'm most excited about.  I designed this game for my word work center.  It's a banner that I'll cut into three separate game boards.   Students will lay the board out and throw a bean bag, Koosh ball... don't have that part worked out quite yet... but whatever number it lands on, they will have to write that number spelling word... OR if I'm feeling particularly nice... I might let them spell it out loud to a partner and then switch and let the partner toss and spell!  I'll be keeping my eye out for other VP deals so I can *hopefully* order 4 more of these!

And there you have it!  If you haven't linked up to my linky party yet, please do!  I'd love to see what you made!

Click the pic below to head over and share your obsession creativity too!

LOADS of people have asked where I got the buntings and backgrounds I used on almost all of these files...   They all come from Lilly Bimble's Etsy shop.  Don't you *love* them?!

One last thing... last week I had an impromptu flash sale at my Teacher's Notebook shop and got a lot of sad e-mails from people who didn't know about the sale because they got their e-mail update the next morning after the sale had ended!  So... I'm going to set up another one to start tomorrow- TUESDAY- and end at midnight!  Everything will be 30% off tomorrow at Teacher's Notebook only!


  1. SERIOUSLY just order double of EVERYTHING you design on Vista Print and send it to me! I have an $80 groupon to use at VistaPrint, but I find the formatting difficult! Any advice?

    By the way, I have a 300 follower giveaway with lots of goodies! Come by and enter!

  2. I LOVE the Toss and Spell! Gotta figure out how to do something like that for my class. Thanks for an awesome idea!

  3. I love everything you ordered!! The prediction sticky notes are great!

  4. I love all of your Vistaprint ideas!! I'm as addicted to Vistaprint as you are. I can never get enough of it. I'm anxiously waiting for my order to arrive as we speak!
    Learning Is Something to Treasure

  5. I would love it if you could teach us how you make some of your posters sometime. They're awesome, but I'd need to tweak them for my classroom and students.

  6. I agree! Would you please think about doing a tutorial on how to create originals and load them to vistaprint? Your stuff is so cute!

    Learning's a Hoot

  7. I LOOOOOOOOVE your Toss & Spell Game!! Would you ever consider putting something like that up for sale on your TpT or TN sites so that then I could upload it to Vistaprint and make my class some games? So creative and cute!!

  8. Yes, yes! I was thinking exactly what the above 3 people said! Please do. I would love a Vistaprint tutorial. I've scoured the internet looking for how-to's and not found anything (leading me to believe it's much easier than I think.)

  9. I fourth (is that a verb?) everyone on the Vistaprint tutorial. I can seem to navigate the site. I really want to make some stuff on there but I can't figure it out.
