Monday Made It...I'm on a role!!



Happy Monday Ya'll!  Yes, I did it AGAIN and created another something for the fantastic Monday Made It linky party over at 4th Grade Frolics.  You need to go over and check out the creativeness from awesome bloggers!

Now on with sharing my creation....

I actually created this about 2 weeks ago; however, I had to wait on Vistaprint to make and ship me my newest lovelies.  Vistaprint did the work.

The Lorax stamp is actually purple ink, but looks blue.
These two stamps are a MUST have for me in the classroom.  Last year I vowed I would NEVER EVER again get hand cramps from signing off on the countless beginning of year forms or receipts for money collected.  I also vowed to NEVER EVER again write the word 'LATE' on student work.  Besides, my experience has shown me that parents prefer to know how late something was and often times they believe the child over the teacher!  My stamps have made me one happy teacher and I can't wait to use them!  Vistaprint is definitely expensive, but if you sit back and wait for a 50% deal like I did it's worth it to get your creative juices flowing.  I paid a total of $26 for shipping and stamps.  Vistaprint is like The Loft and they are ALWAYS having some sort of sale and you should NEVER pay full price at either place!  Ok, so I'm done with my preaching!  I look forward to the wonderful comments I get each week from all of you amazing blog followers.  What stamps do you have in your classroom that are a 'must have'?

  1. Amanda, I love your stamps. I too have a signature stamp but I don't do a late stamp since we are in first grade, but I do a sign and return stamp - man those were the BEST purchases! Come over to my blog to see some other tips that may be helpful! I am your newest follower

  2. DId you make the design for the stamp yourself? Did it have to be certain dimensions?

    1. I did make the design myself. I found the Lorax image online and created the Late stamp with different ideas I had been playing with over the summer. If you go on Vistaprint and click on stamps, you can make anything you want. You can play with different colors, fonts, and pictures. All you need to do is find the stamp style you like and then click on "Advanced Settings". I deleted all of the text boxes so I could start with a blank template. If you decide to make a stamp and need more guidance, just reach out to me. I'm happy to help! :)

  3. I love the ___Days late stamp. What a great idea! I have to write that over and over on one of my sweet friend's papers, so a stamp would be perfect!
