Wow, I can't believe it's time to go back to school already. Over at Exploring Cricut and More we're celebrating with that theme! Yes, it's time for those kids to get on the bus and be at school for the day so we can crank up those Cricut machines and cut the day away!
It's an interesting time for us because we have a son leaving for his Senior year at Purdue and a little grand-girl starting Kindergarten. Therefore, I have 2 projects for you today!
|Sunflowers, Star and Smiley face, Washi tape, Wood grain stamp, Inks, Memo assortment tag|
The layout was inspired from the sketch from Paper Secrets.
The ruler, frames and banners were cut from Artbooking and Art Philosophy.
This new paper from CTMH is Chalk It Up! The cute glasses, smiley, sentiment and star are from the coordinating assortment pack. I embellished with Smoothie Washi Tape, Baker's Twine, Aqua Dots, Shimmer Trim, some flowers from the Retired Skylark collection, and a chipboard note piece from Memo Assortmet (retired). All embellishments are from CTMH.
I stamped the ruler with the wood grain stamp from Universal Backgrounds.
I used Lagoon pigment ink with embossing powder and heat embossed the ABC and 123 to make them stand out a little more.
You can find this backpack, as well as several more really adorable cuts, in the Cricut Campin' Critters cartridge. The letter "P" was cut from Plantin SchoolBook.
Now it's your turn to create your Back to School project and enter the challenge! Check out all the ideas over at Exploring Cricut and More!
