Back to School with The Canadian Paper Trail

Hello Ladies, Today I am featured on The theme is Back to School / End of Summer. I decided that to go with Back to School, I don't have children yet but I'm looking forward to the first day of school activities. I think with the first day of school its a must to get the snap shot of them as there heading out into the world so with that I made a First Day of School photo frame. To go with it I thought making lunch time cards would be cute also. What kid wouldn't love getting a little note from mom or dad in there lunch bag to cheer them up?

Paper: Assorted SU, Brazzill, MS and Recollections
Stamps: Peachy Keen assorted faces
Cricut Carts: Doodlecharms, Lockertalk and Mini Monograms
Embellishments: SU Real Red Satin ribbon, Xmas Red and Orange Peel Stickles
The picture frame was just a plain wood frame that was on clearance at Micheals
Apple where cut at 2 3/4" with Doodlecharms
Bus where cut at 3 1/4" with Lockertalk
Pencil where cut at 2" with Lockertalk
Letters where cut at 3" on the Mini Monograms
It's hard to see but I used stickles to fill in the lights on the bus :) so cute!!

Paper: SU and MS
Cricut Cart: My Community
Others: Black and Brown fine tip pens
Crayons: I used DS to pull up the crayons from the My Community Cart and hide two out of three of the crayons. I repeated the first step to get two of the same crayon side by side. After that I flipped one of the crayons and welded them together to make a crayon card. I cut the crayons out at 4 1/2. I repeated to step to pull up the layers and hide the crayons I wasn't using and again cut out the layers at 4 1/2.
Bag Topper: I used DS and My Community again, with the blackout feature pulled up two of the lunch time cuts then flipped and welded them to make the topper. Then I pulled up the layers for the topper three times so I could hide one of the items in each so in the end I only had to cut out the layers once. I cut all of the topper out at 3 1/4.
I hope you enjoyed my projects and make sure to go over to and check out all the other featured designers. yesterday was my moms post from over at she decorated my laptop with vinyl, and it turned out soooo cute. Thanks Mom!!!
Take care Ladies ttyl xo
