Today’s new release is the one of the winning suggestions from my Custom Doodle Contest! I mixed tooth fairy themed doodles with some tooth mouse illustrations along with colours inspired by the April BYOC to create this fun, toothy pack! It was really interesting to research all the different ways people across the world mark the loss of baby teeth (my favourite is Ratón Pérez, the Tooth Mouse!). Both the Tooth Fairy doodles and Tooth Fairy Stamps are new in the shops today and are 20% off all weekend!
Thank you to everyone who played along with last month’s challenge, it’s always fun to see all the different ways one template can inspire lots of different layouts! Congratulations to March’s random winner Silent Ranks who created this lovely page, all about her scrapbooking addiction! Please check your PMs over at the The Lilypad for details of how to claim your prize!
This month’s template has a strong, geometric composition too – this striking layout by Olga really caught my eye in the gallery and I just knew it would make a really fun template! Olga is a prolific scrapbooker, you could spend hours browsing through her beautiful gallery over at TLP!

The Featured Kit for this month, is one that is very special to me! Baked With Love was inspired by some special childhood memories of baking with my mother and grandmother, along with more recent baking escapades with my own children!
Creative Team Inspiration
Its time to catch up with what else the Teacher Team has been creating! Chad from Male Kindergarten Teacher turned his classroom into Spy Headquarters this month! His pupils worked together to solve the mystery of the missing popcorn machine, they even had secret agent badges and disguises to help them! I’m sure this is something that Chad’s students will remember for a long, long time! You can read all about it over on the Male Kindergarten Teacher blog.
Like many, I am really enjoying the “adult coloring” trend. I’ve enjoyed finding detailed coloring pages from around the internet. I particularly like the availability to print ones I like, over and over again, and my kids really enjoy being able to color the same page as Mommy — because I’m still the coolest person ever to my toddlers! They think my pens are the best thing they’ve ever been allowed to play with (gel pens from the local dollar store).
While the online ones have been great, I’ve really wanted to attempt making my own. I found Kate’s stamps to be PERFECT for this. Using the most recent “Joodle” pack, I’ve made several coloring pages. I really like the flowers and circle doodles and am looking forward to “coloring practice” with shading techniques and color composition. For now, I’ve just sat my kids down with crayons, pens, and markers, and we had a good time!
