Back to School

Posted by Picasa

Great news!!  I have been selected to be on the design team for Scrap It Girl!!! 

For  August # Challenge: What’s your #? Use your favorite #s or just random #’s on your project.   
 I thought I would go with the back to school theme. Since it's that time again.   I created a trio to work together to appreciate our teachers out there.  A little lunch sack to place a surprise in , hopefully a good one maybe a cupcake, yum!, a card so my youngest can write a handwritten thank you note on the inside and a little pencil holder filled with pencils for a gift.

I really like the background on the card and the pencil cup which is actually a tomato paste can,  I embossed black cardstock and then brayed over it with white ink, I kinda think it looks like a chalkboard. 
For the card I stamped the image, colored it in, die cut it out added some more die cuts with dsp a button  and apple with some extra numbers. 
On the pencil cup (tomato paste can)  I first put washi tape around the top and bottom then added a layer of gesso and glued down the embossed background paper, stamped and colored the girl again   I popped her on the can with some extra numbers, apples and a tag.  This is the perfect size for a pencil holder.
I stamped the bag with random numbers , die cut the top , added some dsp more die cuts and a tag with twine.  Super easy and quick.
