Hey everyone! AiFactory is starting the fall term with a new Design Team and a new Challenge. In case you didn’t know, I am the new DT lead for AiFactory and am extremely chuffed about it. So this week our theme is back to school! We got to use these really cute images
So here is the card that I made
The DP was from a stack pack that I had bought eons ago, and the ribbon from a swap. I cut the apple and the crayons out using my cricut A Child’s Year cartridge! Basic colorings with the copics. I hope you like it and I hope you will play along at AiFactory as well. Just pop over to the challenge blog and upload your entry using the linky. You have until Wednesday September 15 12:00EST to get in to win this week’s images. If you use some AiF images awesome but you don’t have to ..but make sure you check out the freebie section! You also don’t want to miss checking out the awesome creations by our DT
I look forward to seeing your entries. Happy scrapping everyone!

Okay. I did these two up last nite as part of my Siphoning through the stash challenge. I think they turned out pretty well.
This first one I am using for a swap card the theme being ‘A’ which of course is for Apple. I used some PP from my stash and I have no idea who it is by. The apple image and wording I cut using my Cricut using the Just Because Cards cartridge. Then I added glitter to the the apple to give it a bit more dimension. I ran the card base through the trusty cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder (ha! I got some new CB folders so watch for a new dots folder. I got two new different dot ones and I can’t wait to use them), and then some ribbon from my stash.
The second card I used an image I got from an image swap I did over at SavvynSassy. She looks more blue in this picture (man I take crappy pics) but she’s actually colored in shades of purple to match the paper. I colored her with my copics and then used some scrap PP for the card. I cut it out using my Spellbinders #4. The ribbon believe it or not comes from someplace like the body shop. If you look closely it has their symbol on it, but I thought that it went well with this card so I used it anyway. LOL You’ll also noticed that I did some stitching. My very first time!!! I picked up this little sewing machine at a 2nd hand shop for $10 brand new! It has tonz of thread, bobbins, buttons, needles etc in it. It was a wicked deal! I’m hoping to do more stitching in some of my cards. We’ll see how it goes.
I hope you liked these. As always comments are always welcome!
BTW.. I didn’t do any new cards today as DH and I took DS out for a day at the park and then we went on a cool Cemetery Tour in the city! Great fun! Lots of family time. Tomorrow back to our regular scheduled programming.
