Monday Made It

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics: Monday Made It linky party!!!

Let me just start by saying I have been busy this past week.  I was able to finally go to my classroom and get some things done.  I was also running around like a mad women trying to squeeze in some last few appointments before school starts.  But the thing I worked on the hardest was getting my TpT store up and running.  I finally got around to starting it up and even putting a few things in.   Before I go into detail I have to give a shout out to my friend Sandy {we have been friends since middle school} for helping me figure out my Photoshop program.  My hubs bought me a Mac computer with all sorts of programs on it about two years ago for Christmas.  I hate to say that I am just now getting around to actually using some of the programs that were installed {better late than never, right?}.  I am really into digital papers and clip art.  I am constantly buying them from other people, so I decided with all the new things I have started this summer why not start making my own.  So who to call for help, but my sweet friend.  She is a photoshop genius in my book.  With a few little lessons and tips, I was on my way.  So for my Monday Made It I would like to introduce what I have worked on so far for my TpT shop.  I hope you like it and will go check it out.

First up I learned how to make chevron digital papers.  Everyone loves chevron stripes.  You see them on everything and everywhere.    They work great for products you are making for your TpT store, invitations and all sorts of other crafts.  I love the colors I put together.

Next up I branched out and started making color themes that could go together.   I love these two color schemes.  They work great together.  It has summer colors written all over it.

The last collection I made for the week was "Lemon Loves Lime".   I think this could be my favorite digital pack so far.   It is such a fun color scheme.

No worries, I don't plan on only sticking to digital art.  I have plans on making educational materials and games as well.  Up first is my "I have... Who has ..???".  My class loved playing this game last year.  I have several different versions of the game that I bought from various different people on TpT.  I had math, reading, holidays - you name it I had a version of it.  So I decided to make my own version using money as the theme.  One of my favorite things to do with this game is to play one round and time how long it takes for the class to finish.  Then play a second round and see if they can beat their time.  It is hilarious watching the kids in the class get so worked up trying to to figure the answers out in a quickly fashion.  This is a good game to reinforce any type of skill.

So there you have it my Monday Made It!   You can follow my Teacher Pay Teacher shop to see what other goodies I will be adding in.  I hope you like what I have done so far.    Thanks for taking a peek!!!

  5. I use photoshop. It took a few lessons to figure it all out. I am still playing with the program. I am amazed how much it can do.
