Hey friends! I am so excited to be bringing you exclusive goodies from Creative Teaching Press. This year, Creative Teaching Press will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary! How exciting! What a great accomplishment to be able to provide teachers with so many varieties of classroom décor, classroom ideas, and simple teacher activities and ideas over the years.
Did you know that 50 years ago a veteran school teacher named Luella Connelly got the idea to make her creative ideas for fun and effective teaching available to other teachers? With the success of her “Recipes for Creative Writing,” Creative Teaching Press was born! Since then, generations of teachers have looked to the family-owned, teacher-managed company for the supplementary materials they need to help their students learn and make their classrooms a positive environment.
Today, I’m excited to show what I “think” I’ll be doing with my room for the 2015-2016 school year. I squealed with excitement when I found out that they now have PINK CHEVRON! YES! Their Chevron collection now has pink! This is just what I’ve been wanting ALL my life! I am still in love with the Chalk It Up! collection as well as pieces from their Painted Palette collection. With that thought in mind, I wanted to know what I could make of those three collections together.
BORDERS! Aren’t borders every teacher’s best friend and go to décor item? I love the look that the black and white borders from the Chalk It Up! collection mixed with the Chevron give. There are so many options for mixing and matching the Chalk It Up! with the Painted Palette collection. The ideas are endless! I cannot wait to play around with these this summer.
I love this border! It looks SO nice by itself.

Here's a few other combinations that I made just being excited about all these options!
As you can see, I got SO excited with so many ways to mix and match! I just had to show you all of them. There are MORE that I could have shown, but these may be my favorites!
I love how the Painted Palette Ombre Turquoise Scallops labels mix so nicely with the Chalk It Up! labels. They are actually the same size, but don't they look GREAT together?
From the Painted Palette collection, I’ve fallen in love with these lime green products. There is something that is SO nice about their lime green. It goes so well with the Chalk It Up! collection!
The Chalk It Up! collection also has these that I'm drooling over! Library pockets, chalk pencils, and extremely cute nameplates! Can't you just see a matching color paint pen or chalk marker writing over the nameplates? SO cute!
Mixing and matching has never looked so fab! Who would have thought that three collections could mesh so well.
