Monday Made It... But Totally Finished It Tuesday & Giveaway

I know I'm a day late, but I'm too excited not to share my Monday Made Its!  Today, I have three Monday Made Its that I am going to share!

First up, my new Chalk Inspired Collection!  I just love it!  I made the word wall and number posters two years ago!  I can't believe they have been in my TpT store for that long!

I just love how the black makes these posters pop!  Seriously!  My whole color scheme was centered around these two, little creations!  I added the lime and magenta borders this year!  I am in LOVE with layered borders!  Remember, the sneak peek of my word wall...

My next Monday Made It was courtesy of my hubby!

This was another project I have been wanting to complete for years!  The filing cabinet in my room looked horrendous with a capital H!  It was beige with contact paper!  I will spare you the pain by not showing you a before picture!  Here is a picture of the cabinet fully primered and painted!

He used auto primer and spray paint from O'Reilly's Auto Parts.

It looks great!  I just hope the paint doesn't chip on its way back to my classroom!  I wonder if some type of sealer might help...

My third Monday Made It was all for my nephew who celebrated his 5th birthday last weekend!  Turning 5 is a big deal!  He wanted a Minecraft party in the WORST WAY!  I have made every party invitation for him and my niece...even when they were in the womb!  At that time, I was more of a scrapbooking invite maker (if that is even a term).  Now, I am totally digital!

If you want to check out some of my other invites, head over to my Etsy shop, Sharp Digital Designs!  There isn't much in there, but shoot me an email and let me know your theme!

Remember to link back to Tara's Monday Made It post to check out almost 200 MMI's!  Seriously!



  1. I love the black accents and how it makes everything "pop"! Your layered border looks great, too!

    Learning at the Teacher Table

    1. Thank you, Donna! My first attempt at the border didn't go so well. I tried eyeballing it, and the layers weren't even. I learned real quick that I needed to measure out from the edge with a yardstick!

  2. Ashley, I am obsessed with this chalkboard theme!! Also wanted to give you some love for the layered borders which I can't imagine living without!!

    Miss Peluso's Kindergarten

    1. Thanks, Gina! I started the chalkboard theme two years ago, but never finished! Better late than never, I guess!

  3. Sometimes I feel like we are the same person! Check out my Monday Made It!! Lol!

    Loving Teaching Inspiring

    1. LOL! It seems like every Monday Made It is the same! Great minds think alike!

  4. I'm loving the number line. So bright and colorful!

  5. I LOVE all of your chalkboard creations. DJ Inkers clip art always makes me smile. :)

    Your file cabinet turned out great. I need to do mine because it sure is ugly!

    You have such a cute blog! I am happy to be your newest follower. Hop over and visit if you get the chance.
