Vista Print Goodies

Did you purchase the Vista Print Groupon?  I bought the one that was $17 for $70 worth of stuff...I hear there is another one out there for $20 that is worth $80 in merchandise. 

I will forewarn you, however, that unless you end up purchasing more, they tack on like $40 worth of shipping.  However, if you spend another $25, then shipping is free.  So, instead of the extra shipping cost, I decided to add $25 more to my cart and get free shipping.  So, what you will see below I got for about $32.  I think it is worth it in the end.  It was a huge headache that I kept putting off for weeks.  Now that I feel like I {somewhat} know what I am doing, I will definitely order from Vista Print again. 

I'm linking up with Christina at Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge to bring you all of my creations.  

I first learned of ordering from Vista Print for my classroom from the one and only Stephanie (Teaching in Room 6).  I love all of her ideas.  Like every.single.one.  Seriously.  She even has a tab for her Vista Print creations.

Several of my purchases are mirrors of some of the things she's made before. 

Here's one inspired by her:

This was a large postcard.  On the front is a message greeting my students on the first day.  On the back is a survey for them to complete telling me a little bit about themselves. 

Here's a birthday card inspired by her, too:

Again, that was a postcard.


One last item directly inspired by Stephanie was this:
That is a notepad that is about 4x6, maybe?  I got 2 of them in the order.
 Next up:
Love my car door magnet.  It is hanging above my agenda board.  {Room pictures to come soon :)}

My next item I saw on Pinterest.  However, when I clicked on it to find the source, it was a dead link.  If it was your idea orginally, please let me know.  I'd love to give you credit, because this stinkin' rocks:
I got two sets of homework passes.  You can never have enough homework passes:

I can never have enough labels for my books:
 These were return address labels.

And, if I run out of those, I got this stamp (for free):
The only thing I don't like about this stamp is that it is teeny tiny.  Like only about 1 1/2 inches wide.  Oh well...it's free :)

My next item is, I think, going to be my favorite.  They are sticky notepads that I made for my math small groups:

The numbers are for a rubric of mine about how the student is progressing.  I'm not sure why the last line doesn't show that it goes all the way to the edge, but it does.

I got some round stickers to put on my back to school treat bags.  These are cute:

I also have a matching business card magnet that goes with this pattern.  I'm not posting that for obvious reasons :)
Finally, a few more free items:
I'm going to put that Happy Birthday bumper sticker above my birthday board display. 

So, there you have it...all my Vista Print Loot.  Love it all!  My momma came in and helped me in my classroom and saw all of my loot.  I think she was a little jealous.  Maybe I'll order some stuff for her for all of the hard work she's been putting into my classroom.  I'd also have to do this for Sarah (my daughter) because she's been helping, too.

If you've ordered from Vista Print lately, go on over to Christina's blog and link up.  I'm sure I'm going to find a reason to get that other Groupon :)

  6. Love all of your goodies! Stephanie's Vistaprint ideas are great, I always use hers to inspire mine too. I love the stamp about getting back to parents the next day. I might have to make one of those next time a Groupon pops up!

  8. Awwwww....I love them all! And thank you so much for your kind words :) That was sweet of you!

    I was all set to order so much this year and the deals just haven't been to my liking. Maybe I will just take the plunge and get the groupon.
