All this week the Pebbles team have been working on 'Back to School' projects without actually using any school related products... hmmm, interesting concept! Well at first I thought 'how am I going to manage that one', but when I opened up my 'Fresh Goods' collection, it was jam packed with gorgeous primary colours and wonderful prints that were perfect for creating a couple of 'thankyou teacher' cards.
I came across the cutest apple on my Cricut 'Plantin Schoolbook' Cartridge.
I am loving this new velvet ribbon from American crafts and the bows sit perfectly. The only issue I have with it... Mr Wilson (the kitten) seems to love the yellow and hunts it down amongst my other ribbons to use as his new chew-toy! I've caught him with it three times, bad kitty!
Okay, a stamper I'm not... but I had an idea and I didn't want it to get the better of me just because I'm afraid of stamping! I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to cut out an apple template and then proceeded to stamp the word teacher in diffierent colours within the template. Well it was kinda what I was hoping for but probably not quite as neat as I would have liked. Practice makes perfect I guess and I need some serious practice.
Don't forget to pop over to the Pebbles blog HERE to see all the wonderful 'Back to School' creations from the rest of the design team.
UPDATE: I woke this morning to find my email full of wonderful comments on one of my 'thankyou teachers' cards as it had been selected to feature at Two Peas... now this doesn't happen very often, actually I've only ever been featured once before so I was pretty darn excited. So much so that I couldn't resist taking a screen print of the page just so I could share and be before it disappeared from the Two Peas gallery. :)
My Little Shoebox
Another card using the Cricut for creating a template. This time I used the Wall decor and More cartridge to create the dress form template and then placed the different MLSB patterned papers from the Home Tweet Home and Sew Cute collections behind the cut-outs. Add a ribbon, some bling and a rub-on sentiment and it's done.
Don't forget to pop by the MLSB blog HERE to spy some of the other cards created by the design team.
Well it's been a while since I posted this give-away so I had better post a picture of the prize pack again as a little reminder of the yummy My Little Shoebox and Imaginisce products up for grabs.
