MTCC #62

Well, anyone with kids knows that we are in the last days of summer and the kids go back to school in about 2 weeks. Maybe yours are already. My son hits grade 8 this year and he goes back on the 6th. Needless to say, he is less than thrilled.

Speaking of back to school, guess what our theme is for the next 2 weeks at Make the Cards Challenge....yep School or Teacher!

I decided to go with a slimline for my card, just because I hadn’t done one in awhile and I thought it would be great for these little gnomes!

Surprisingly, I didn’t really have any back to school stamps or papers that I could find. However I did find this apple paper which was the back side of the paper I used for my last project. It was perfect. Then I just went online and found these little gnomes and I thought it was great that they were all holding apples too! Perfect. I printed out a sentiment and I created the holes and the border using my Studio Katia slimline die set that I have.

I’m going to give it to my son on his first day back to school. I don’t think he will appreciate it as much as I do…LOL

Stop by the blog to play along with us and to see what the rest of the DT has created…there are some amazing projects there, and we can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you Teacher

Well, today is Riley’s last day of Grade 3.  I can’t believe it!  He’s just getting so big!  I know all moms say that, probably because it’s true!

Here is the card that I made for his teacher gift, inspired by Pinterest!

The DP is a sheet from my box that I’ve had forever.  I cut out an image using my cricut and some scraps.  The sentiment is stamped from a Paper Smooches stamp set.  I just added half a doily because I just didn’t quite like the way the die cut sat against the DP.

Enjoy!
