FCCB #309 - Back To School!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #309-Back to School
Create a project that features anything about school

This Weeks Sponsor

The prize is 4 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

This year is my littlest one's first year of Kindergarten! I can't believe she is really starting... The time goes by so quick! She's really ready though and is looking forward to meeting her teacher and making new friends. Back to school is always an exciting time for my girls (and me ;). I remember buying school supplies and being so excited about the change of seasons. Fall is definitely my favourite! So, for this challenge I knew I wanted to make my girls each a card to celebrate back to school.

I'm using the super cute Bugaboo Digital Stamp 'Ava School Sign It' paired with Cricut cuts from the Classroom- Oct/Nov, Recess and Autumn Celebrations cartridges. I started off by opening the digi stamp in PicMonkey and adding the black on the chalkboard area and the white text over it. I even added some fun chalk effects in the background using the PicMonkey program.

After I printed them both off on white cardstock I used Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers, both alcohol based, to colour in the cute Ava image.

I added some Distress Ink sponging around the edges and used a white paint pen to add a few white highlights to the digi image and diecuts.

A few shiny sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps in colours to match gives a little bling!

Inside, I added this fun diecut sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you had a great weekend - it's a holiday for us here today and then 'Back To School' Tuesday!! Be sure to check out all the other fun projects on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and enter your own for a chance to win!
