Well, first week of school down the tubes!!! It has been a big adjustment for all of us- lots of tired kiddos and mommies!!LOL!! Going to have to rest up for a full week next week!
I have mentioned several times before that I leave the house for school well before anyone else wakes up in the house. So I miss out on all the fun with back to school first day. So I like to leave Jack a little note for him to read that tells him that I love him and that I am thinking of him ALL day long.
This year I made a Core'dinations card for him that was on his placemat waiting for him. I took a Silhoutte image and turned it into a card. I cut the card base out in white. I then cut the apple, stem and leaf out uisng Core'dinations. I then embossed the three parts using different embossing folders. For the apple a Cuttlebug dot embossing folder, for the stem a Darice woodgrain folder and for the leaf a Cuttlebug folder. I love all the different textures. I then cut down a Core smooth tag and stamped the sentiment and bus using some older Paper Trey Ink stamps. Finally I attaced it to the card using some yummy twine from the Stringery! As a final touch I added some black gems to represent seeds. I love how it turned out and Jack LOVED it!!!
Core'dinations blog. I even have a how to video on how to use the Core Cardstock.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I will be back next week with new projects. See you then and have a wonderful and crafty weekend.
