Let's head on it to the classroom and see these amazing back to school projects!

For my assignment I made a 3D card. I found this file in the Silhouette Store and I thought it would be perfect for the hop. I made the inside to look like a teenage girl's bedroom. The 3D part is the desk. I added the different colored drawer pulls and on top of the desk I put a vase with a flower and a computer that says " I Hate Homework!" as the screen saver. I chose a flower wall paper and matching painted stripe floor. On the front of the card I added the saying - Have a great year and added some flowers to frame the saying

King Of The Grill

Today I am going to share with you a card I made for my dad using a file from Paper Crafting World. You can find the King Of The Grill CF w/ printables set  Here. I made the card base a 5x7 and I added a 1inch strip of grey brick embossed paper to look like a brick patio.


Hope you all are having a great summer.

Bear In A Bikini

Today I was thinking, Let's Hit The Beach! I created this card because I love swimming and would love to go to the beach. I had to put her in a Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka dot Bikini! I bet you just sang that. :). I used the file, Bear In Bikini CF and you can find it Here at Paper Crafting World. To make the background I sponged ink on the card stock creating a beach, ocean, sky and the sun.

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer.

Bear With Ice Cream Cart

Hello, Today I would like to share the file, Bear With Ice Cream Cart from Paper Crafting World. You can find this file Here. I created a money box. The child or child at heart can save their change for some ice cream. I put the cute file together and attached it to the front of a box that I made and decorated it with ice cream cone paper. This was such a fun project to make I know you would enjoy making one too.



I hope you enjoyed my project. Have a wonderful day!
