Schools Inn

My personal challenge has been to scrapbook for 30 days, well I failed! This was the 5th time I have done it this month! Well at least I'm getting better at trying.
Of course as the Stampin Up year is coming to an end and next month we release the retired list I fall in love with the Celebrations designer paper. What the heck, its only been at my disposal for 10 months and just now I am using it. grrrrr. Well anyways this page is for my grandson, Tyson.
Supplies are:
12 x 12 Pacific Point
Celebrations Designer paper
Pear Pizzazz Paper(1/2,3/4,1 inch punches for book worm.) Layers of eyes are using the owl punch. The books are using the window punch making them smaller to stack. The apples I took a short cut using the Cr---t. I used the corner punch to round of the edges of the chalk board. I plan to use a White gel pen to write his name and year. I hope you liked this and thanks as always for stopping by.

Follow your dreams

This gift set can be used for a fathers day or a graduation gift. The reason the card is so SHINY is because I like to use the card as a center piece for the bag. I use the largest of the Cello Bags and trim it down to 5.25. I insert the card and using the red tacky tape I fold it over loosely, peel and stick. I also use 2 strips down each side in the back before centering it on the bag. I stamped the tissue and bag to match and made a quick tag to tie together.This was super easy. I hope you enjoy this one. Supplies used were:
Tissue and Bag from Michaels.
Stamp Set: Open Seas/Word Play
Ink: Basic Grey, Not quite Navy, Cherry cobbler
Cardstock: Base card 8.5 x 5.5 Not Quite Navy
Designer Paper 5.25 x 5.25 Nautical Expedition
Cherry Cobbler 2 x 4.25/DP 1.75 x 4.25 matching square 2 x 2 for top corner.
Basic Grey 3.25 x 2.75 Cherry Cobbler 3 x 2.50 Whisper White 2.75 x 2.25
Tag: Basic Grey 4.25 x 2.50 Cherry Cobbler 1x2.50 Designer Paper .75 x 2.50 Cherry cobbler round tab punch. Whisper White punched out of Designer label punch. Bakers twine, and Jumbo Eyelet.
