Back To School Card and Supplies

Have you gotten all of your kids/grandkids back to school pictures scrapbooked yet?  If not, I've got the perfect set for you. It's guessed it.."School Kids." Not only is this set stinkin' cute, but we now have a die cut set to go with it.  I created this 7" x 5" card using the set, and at that point the dies were not yet available. I cut out the kids and school house with my own little fingers and a pair of scissors. It was worth it for this fun card, but YOU don't have to. YOU can use die cuts! WOO HOO!

Here's a little close up of the School Kids cut outs on the card. I stamped everything with my Black Tuxedo Memento pad then painted the kids and school house with my watercolor paints. I also stamped the apples on some polka dotted Kraft paper from our Basic Fustic Home Fundamentals paper pack and painted those with my watercolor paints too. I love how the paint looks on the Kraft, don't you?

Here's the whole set:


And here is the die cut set. As you can see, you get the dies for each of the kids, plus the school house and apple.  Nifty!

Here's a great Back to School layout from the Close To My Heart art department using this set and coordinating thin cuts that will knock your socks off!

I've also included a list of all of the products I used at the very end of this post, complete with photos and links for your convenience.

Halloween Card and Jeeper Creepers Workshop Your Way

This little monster makes me smile every time!  How about you?

Our wonderful Workshop Your Way scrapbooking kits are a killer deal.  For $26.95 you get everything you need to create three beautiful 2-page layouts, plus you'll have some treat left tricking! (See what I did there? Tricks/Treats and a Halloween card?  Ba Ha Ha! I crack myself up!). This card was inspired by my friend, Melissa Robinson.

Here are a couple details of this card.  Popping things up with 3D foam tape, and adding three-dimensional accents (like the darling google eyes and stars you see on this card from the Jeepers Creepers Assortment) really jazzes up any card or project.

With Halloween coming up, you're sure to have scads of Halloween photos in the next week. With school parties, neighborhood parties, pumpkin patch visits, and trick or treating itself, this is a holiday that is only rivaled by Christmas when it comes to volume of photos taken.  The cool things is, you'll have fun things left over from that kit after you create your three two-page layouts that are perfect for creating a few cards (and who doesn't love having cards on hand for next Halloween?).

Here is what comes in the Jeepers Creepers Workshop Your Way:
  • Jeepers Creepers Paper Packet
  • Jeepers Creepers Complements
  • 5 extra sheets of cardstock (1 Pansy, 2 Whisper and 2 White Daisy)
  • 1 Jeepers Creepers Assortment
  • 1 Jeepers Creepers Washi Pack 
  • Online access to instructions, cutting guides,  and color photos

Here are the three 2-page layouts you create with our Jeepers Creepers Workshop Your Way. Aren't they amazing? 

When you consider all that you can make for a $26.95 workshop, plus having leftovers to create cards, tags, candy bar wrappers, or whatever you choose, it's a pretty SCREAMING deal!  Get yours today here. Anyone that orders this kit from my website before October 31 will receive a handstamped Halloween card from me in the mail.  How's that for a treat?

Christmas Magic 3" x 5" Card

Sometimes it's fun to make a card that's not the typical size.  This one is a 3" x 5" card and I just love how it turned out. It's a top fold card, and I rounded the bottom edges.  I also did quite a bit of white embossing on this card. I just love the look of white embossing on colored papers.  In this case I used Black and Glacier cardstocks.

To create a 3" x 5" top fold card, you'll want a 3" x 10" piece of cardstock, folded in half.  You can get 2 of these cards out of one 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock, and 4 of them out of a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock.

The stamp set I've chosen to use on this card is the October Stamp of the Month - Yuletide Joy. This stamp set is yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you order (before shipping and tax). Order $100, get 2...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.  I've also included a list of all of the products I used on this card, as well as photos and links for your convenience, at the very end of this post.
