The apples of my eye go BACK TO SCHOOL!



Well, the Y camp finished last Fri, and school doesn't start until Thurs. I had today off from work with the kids, and while I was happily playing in my stamp room, Ems came in and wanted me to make a card for her new teacher. I don't have the teacher set from PTI, but I've been meaning to try something. On scrapbooking pages you always see these neat shapes for journalling. I decided to combine Borders and Corners Circles with Journalling Lines from PTI to make one of my own. I used my Nesties to make a reverse mask, stamped the circle, covered with the mask, and stamped the lines. The apple is from SU's Tart and Tangy, sentiment is from Vintage Picnic. CS: Confetti Tan (SU retired), Pure Poppy and Dark Chocolate (PTI), DP is Chocolate Remix. Ribbon is PTI, eyelets are ret. SU. The focal point is cut out with Nesties. Have a great back to school!

Hi Amy, This has come out soooo beautiful. I really liked the way you have combined journalling lines and the borders and corners circle set. I love it. I might have to give this a try..very cool. Summer seems to have flown very quickly, already it is time for the kids to be back in school.....

This is fabulous! I love how you used the circle and journaling lines. It looks great! I've been meaning to do something similar for my scrapbooking. The teacher is going to love it!
