Hello Ladies, Today I am featured on http://thecanadianpapertrail.blogspot.com/. 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?
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!!
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.
