I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

It's that time of year when many of our challenge blogs ask for GREEN projects. Now, green can symbolize many things: St. Patrick's Day, spring, or even Earth Day which is coming up this month. I was inspired to use green, and I made a little love note to put in my husband's briefcase. 

I started with this adorable sentiment from the Silly Valentine's Day stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I inked the edges in green and added green bling. I used a bright crosshatch patterned paper because it has loads of spring colors (including green) and mat that on green. I used that same green cardstock to cut the heart banner by La La Land.
