Default WT388 - School Tools (8/16/12)

Good morning, friends! Cathy here with a new Ways to Use It Challenge! Before long, if not already, many children will be trudging off to school with notebooks, pens, and pencils packed in their brand new backpacks. So, as a retired elementary teacher, my challenge to you is to use a "School Tool" somewhere on your stamped creation. Let's see some cards and 3-D projects in the gallery that use those stamped or real "School Tools." Think staples, brads, chalk...anything you might find in a school classroom. Have fun going back to school!

My School Days sample is below below.

You can also see my sample here~

Remember to use the keyword, WT388, when uploading your card so we can all see your creation. It helps if you link it up back here too. You can view the entire gallery for the School Tools challenge HERE.


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Thanks for posting early, Cathy, with this cute challenge. I needed to make a get well card so I used your challenge as inspiration.

Here's a card I made the other day for the MFP Blog Hop, but never uploaded to SCS. It fits today's WT challenge.

Smile WT388 Pencil or Typewriter

I was inspired by Lois' (Clownmom) Vintage Schoolroom- used SU's Greeting Card Kids, and Puns from the Past. I had Mickey and his gang join our schoolkid for a little fun. Not sure if we should use- Pencil or Typewriter
