Back to School Time


Hello and a very happy Monday to you. I know it's hard to imagine, but right smack dab in the middle of summer, lots of kids are heading back to school. As a child, we always returned the Wednesday after Labor day, but things have changed in today's world!
I have a couple cards today made with the newly released Deedee's Digis School Daze set. I used the pre-colored backpack image and pencil and both were fussy cut and popped up on foam tape. A retired SU! spiral punch was used to create the border on the Imaginisce dsp. The chipboard circle and ribbon are both from Imaginisce too. This will be going to one of my DGD's who return to school in just a couple days.


This one will be going to my other DGD and her favorite color is purple, so I colored this one to make it different from the one above since sisters don't want the same things! I used fluorescent Copics on this one, adding a different sentiment and a piece of notebook paper - both from the set. Again, I used Imaginisce dsp, a chipboard apple, and some ribbon underneath the sentiment. The backpack was fussy cut and popped up on foam tape.


If you're not playing along with Deedee's August monthly challenge, you should check it out! She's celebrating her one-year anniversary with weekly prizes and a grand prize at the end of the month. Check the blog here to see if you're the first lucky winner of the weekly prize today!

Thanks for stopping by today and make it a great week ahead!

Those backpacks are just so cute and I love the spiral punch. What a great set this is for back to school projects and cards.

I sure wouldn't want to start back to school this early....too much summer fun left. But, no one asked me.

Two super cards from these new releases. I like 'em both, and hear you about each child needing something different from the other one. I'd say you handled that really well. Loved the way you've popped up the images for the dimension, and great touch on the notepaper too. They will each be delighted. I'm really liking this newest release. Gotta get crackin on and make something to share! TFS & Hugs

You got an A already and school just barely started??!!!!! We had some schools start July 30. That's crazy stuff. The mindset that school starts after Labor Day is starting to change. And as someone who works in a college that has always started before Labor Day I'm glad. If you don't show up until after Labor Day, you're late. Not a good way to start college. Really cute cards!

Love, love, love both of these cards Carol! I too as a child went back to school after labor day, except when living in the south. School always started in Aug and ended the end of May. I guess the other states adopted that time frame too. lol I love this digi and will have to get this one so I can make and send Bret some cards. Hugs, Brenda

Fun images! Log the backpack and the "I got an A+" - my daughter found out today she got in A in the Microeconomics course she took this summer and she was sooooo thrilled (after the final she was kind of worried). She would love that card. Fun stuff. Hugz!
