To welcome the new academic year, Celebrate the Occasion is featuring back-to-school projects this week. So open that new box of crayons and join our design team for some great school projects!
My project is a double-page scrapbook layout of my son's Beautiful Butterflies class from last year. It was his first year at preschool, and he absolutely LOVED it. His teachers were the best, and he made lots of little friends that he's eager to see again when his school begins after Labor Day.
- Papers - patterns by American Crafts: Everyday; cardstocks by C'ordinations and The Paper Studio
- Cricut Cuts - butterflies from Create a Critter, page 64; crayons from Simply Charmed, page 52; scissors and glue from Simply Charmed, page 54; bear from Doodlecharms, page 105; backpack from Doodlecharms, page 119; car from Boys Will Be Boys, page 61; "beautiful" from Paisley, page 53; font for "BUTTERFLIES" is Opposite from Opposites Attract
- Other - lots of inking with Colorbox petal point ink pads and Le Plume II markers
I can't believe I used seven cartridges on this project! Maybe I was having a little too much fun making die cuts of preschool objects...
You can link up your own back-to-school project at Celebrate the Occasion now through Sunday, August 14, for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from PaperTrey Ink. I can't wait to see your school-themed projects!
I'm also submitting this project to My Sheri Crafts: Challenge #66 - Back to School.
