Vista Mania Mini-Poster Freebie!

Yesterday was a day for me to waste two hours on Vistaprint creating some really sweet items. I saw the offer  on Groupon to buy a certificate for $20 worth $80. I had to check this place out. Off I went with no idea what Vistaprint was. It took me a while to fill my cart with $80 worth of original designs using some of my favorite Digital Bakeshop owls. Yes! I could fall in love with this store. I was all set to check out, so off I went to purchase the certificate from Groupon...You know what I'm going to say, if you use Groupon...SOLD OUT! For about five minutes there was a big black cloud hanging over my head!

Not one to let things get me down for too long, I returned and kept my favorite items in the cart. The deal wasn't as sweet as I had hoped, but at least I was able to come up with some great things for my classroom and for my students.
Ready for the big reveal? Here it is...
This large car magnet will be hung on the door to my classroom. I'll write student's names on the owls.

This small magnet will go home with each student at the
open house we have prior to the first day of school.







I'll wait for a good coupon or deal to print this poster...No moreimpulse shopping for me...this week!
This morning I had to play with my newest toy.  Digital Bakeshop's Hoots and Tweets Back to School. I love these owls and look at the poster that is saved in my porfolio:

If you would like a copy for yourself you can get one HERE Google Docs or find it free at my TPT store. Thank you for following along!

  3. Oh you and I are on the same wave length this year!! I become obsessed with all the sweet little owls and designed all my classroom stuff with them too. I also messaged Jamie at the Digital Bakeshop a few weeks ago to see if she could put together a "back to school owls" clip art set in time for back to school and she said she could probably have them by the first week of August. Then she totally came through yesterday!! I love your owls in line poster!

  9. Hi Jenny,
    I’m one of your followers. :) Your owl items are adorable! I wanted to do an owl theme in first grade, but second has a big owl unit--so that would be a big No-no!
    I am a Newbie Blogger, so I appreciate all of the sharing of advice and ideas. Come on over for a visit sometime.
