Challenge #235 - Back To School

Hello, thanks for stopping by the Kraft Journal. It is August and that means long hot days, sweet watermelon and the start of another school year, which brings us to this weeks  Challenge #235 - Back To School.

Marsha Drain
Every year Marsha makes Back to School cards for her grandchildren.  For this card she started with Light Kraft cardstock for the base.  Using a torn page die, she cut the edge of a  Vintage Dictionary Page.   After coloring the digital image, she cut off some of the image of the desk then glued the remainder onto Lunch Bag Kraft.  She wrote "Back to school" onto a piece of school lined paper designer paper then backed it with Lunch Bag Kraft.  The embellishments she used are Bakers Twine and Notebook Washi Tape.  For more details, please visit her blog: Gramma's Room

Tammy Hobbs
Tammy started with a card base of Blackboard Stock Paper onto which she layered her pieced school themed papers. She tied a length of Red Baker's Twine around where the pieces meet and tied in a bow. Tammy then took one of The Kraft Outlet's Yellow Library Card and stamped some number and the date before adding it at an angle to the card front. She then die-cut a stitched rectangle from Blackboard Stock Paper to which she stamped a Welcome Back to school sentiment and apple using the chalkboard technique. She then placed it at an angle on the Yellow Library Card.  Lastly she cut a pencil from Brown Kraft Cardstock and decorated it with other papers from her stash and added it to the card.

Stephanie Wright
For this week's Back to School Challenge, Stephanie chose to make an extra large card (5.25" x 8.25") for her grandson. A large tag was cut from Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock for the inside of the bag. A piece of white cardstock was layered on top and embellished with Notebook Grid Paper Tape. This tape was also used to made a hole reinforcement for the top of the tag. White Twill Tape and more baker's twine finish off the tag. After inserting the tag into a  Large Notebook Merchandise Bag, she wrapped Red Baker's TwineBrown Kraft Baker's Twine and Dark Green Baker's Twine around it. A button from her stash was added to the twine before tying it off in a knot. She then adhered the bag to a base of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock. The top of the base was trimmed to match the shape of the bag. She matted her Copic colored image and a piece of a Vintage Dictionary Page on cardstock from her scrap basket and layered them on the bag front. More scrap cardstock was cut into fishtail banners to add to the top of the bag. Her computer generated sentiment was added to a die cut banner and popped up over the baker's twine. Stephanie hopes you'll stop by her blog, Steph's Scrap Happenings, for more pictures and additional details on how she made her card. She looks forward to seeing your Back to School projects.
