Paper Crafters Sampler August - Welcome Back to School



Well, it's August and time for the kids to go back to school.

This month the design team has designed some amazing and extremely varying projects for our "Welcome Back to School" theme.  Not one project is alike and yet they all offer an eye-opening take on clever back to school projects.

This months template is "My Little School Desk".

Below is a little peak at my project.  You must head on over to Paper Crafters Samplers and check out the others.

Traveler Easel Card


Here is another version of the card I made the other day.  I needed to switch it to an Easel Card for my upcoming card class.  This is what the card looks like set-up as an Easel Card.  I decided to use the Pansy and Petite Petals punch to make a flower for the bottom part of the card.  I added one of the Retired Large Basic Pearls to the center.  I pulled out the Rotary "Make Note" stamp for the "Picture Perfect" saying.  I thought it went well with the camera.

Let me know what you think.

Here's another card I made with the Traveler and World Map Stamp Set.  I needed another card for my workshop in a couple weeks.  I am showcasing the Traveler Stamp Set.

I hope you like.

Traveler meets Old Retro Sketch #92


I came across a older Retro Sketch #92 and thought it would be good to use on another Traveler Card. I wanted to use the Typeset paper and the thought Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and a little Basic Black would work well together.  I embossed the camera image with embossing powder to make it pop.  Sponged all the edges with baked brown sugar ink to give it a little vintage touch.  I thought the new Venetian Crochet Trim with the Vintage Faceted Designer Button added a nice touch.  The Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder used on the Banner Framelit pulled it all together.  
The Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Sizzix Die Circles, Scallops#2 are both retired but feel free to use something else.  I forgot to add the #132173 Banners Framelit to the table below, this is a current item.

Let me know what you think.
