An Easy Way to Add Names to My Certificates!

I learned something new today! Someone asked me if they could add names on my certficates (a pdf file) on the computer so they didn't have to write them by hand. I found out an easy way to do this!  Go to http://www.pdfescape.com. You don't have to buy or install anything. Just upload my pdf of certificates, which opens it for you to add text, then you can add names and dates and then save or print them. Very easy, time saving, and FREE! You can add text to any existing pdf file this way! Thanks, pdfescape!

NEW! Frames II

This product is for personal use in your classroom or home. Commercial use is allowed by teacher sellers making educational items ONLY. If you use them commercially, you must give credit to Johnson Creations.
There are 10 different frames. Each one is provided in png format (with transparent backgrounds). The frames are white and outlined in black.  Shadows are on preview only.
These can be used for making signs, book and report covers, power point presentations, product covers, and many other items.
The frames fit 8.5" x 11" sheets. They are shown much smaller in the preview to show all 10. They look great on colored or patterned backgrounds! Have a great weekend, everyone! School's almost out for the summer!

More Frogs

Here are some new frog items that have been added to my stores lately. Can you tell I like frogs?! The first math game is a card game. The second game has two different coloring sheets in the kit. The third product I just finished today is a frog themed memory book.
This memory book will be a big hit with your students (and their parents) and will be a great way for them to remember their year in your class. Every page has a frog and a sentence starter. Pick and choose the pages you want to use. Add one or two autograph pages (included), then photocopy and staple! Your students will be able to record and treasure their favorite memories! There are covers for kindergarten, first, second and third grades.

Teachers Notebook will soon be selling a big bundle of teacher products, donated by their teacher sellers (I donated two items). 100% of proceeds of sales from this special bundle will be given to relief efforts to aide the Moore, OK victims!  Keep watching and please purchase it when it becomes available (SOON). You'll be helping out Moore, Oklahoma, and you'll also get LOTS of goodies for you and your classroom! Thanks!!!

End of the Year Poster 11" x 17"

This poster is 11" x 17" ($1.00) and can be photocopied on most photocopy machines. This is a fun activity to do during the last few days of school. When completed, students can share their pictures and answers with the rest of their class and then take their posters home for a fun momento of their school year. Have a great rest of the school year!

Happy Mother's Day Freebie

We got home last night from our vacation to Washington D.C.  We had a great time and I took TONS of pictures. After we got home, I saw this month's challenge and started working right away. Kim Broedelet posted another awesome color swatch this month for her color challenge. Look at the pretty colors:
If you want top play along, you can make something to share or do a layout using these colors. Kim will share a beautiful kit with you if you participate! Go here for details: Kim's May Colour Challenge.
I couldn't wait to make something with this color swatch! I really wanted to get this finished so I could post it today. Happy Mother's Day to all digital scrapbooking Moms! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I played most of the day making this kit:

The kit has 15 papers (7 solids and 8 patterned papers), 19 elements and an 89 piece alphabet (upper case, lower case, numbers, symbols and punctuation). You can get it here: MOM
I'd love to hear what you think of it. Please leave me a comment if you grab it! It will be up until next month's colour challenge (the 2nd Wednesday of the month).

Teacher Appreciation Freebie

THANK YOU, teachers, for everything you do, each and every day. I know how hard you work because I did it for 29 years! You grade papers late at night after your own children have gone to bed. You go in to work early, work through your lunch hours and stay late. You work on weekends, vacations and SUMMERS. You spend lots of your own money buying needed classroom supplies and items for your students (and their parents). You take classes on your own time (also paid with your own money) to keep your teaching certificates active. You spend lots of time defending your profession because of the negativity from the media and politicians.

It's a wonderful profession and I'm glad I chose teaching as my career. But it's a hard job and it gets harder every year. I'm proud of the work you do, every day, every year, for your students. I'm proud to call all of you my colleagues! 

I made this freebie in your honor. It will be available in both stores on May 2. I hope you like it! Included in this packet are two 12” x 12” papers (a notebook paper and a rainbow plaid paper) in 300 resolution for printing, name tags and an 89 piece alphabet (capital letters, lower case letters, numbers, symbols and punctuation). The alphabet pieces are png files. That means they are transparent images without backgrounds. You can place them on any other background. You can insert them into word processing documents, your newsletters, Power Point files, art programs, etc. to make titles, fancy letters for bulletin boards, or other items. The papers can be used for digital scrapbooking, book/report covers, Power Point presentations, Signs/Posters, etc. The name tags are great for the first day of school, field trips or when you have a guest teacher or speaker visit your classroom. You can get it HERE or HERE!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week, and again, thanks for all you do!
