This week, the My Favorite Challenge in the MFT Forum at Splitcoaststampers is Back to School! Create a project with a school theme. Well, my children are college age so I decided to do a little scrapbooking for the challenge. I am not really this behind on putting my kids pictures in album, but have a small pile of class pictures that have not made it in a album. Since I have started cardmaking I have started to incorporate my stamp supplies into my scrapbooking.
I used two MFT stamp sets on this layout, the new and totally cute I (heart) Books and Bling Bet for the lettering. I added a border to the bottom with a Martha Stewart punch and distressed the edges with a sponge. I used two different ribbons. the black one is from MFT. It has white stitching, which was a little too white with this paper. I colored it my E53 Copic marker to give it more cream color. I stamped the bookworm, masked him off, and stamped the books. I colored the cute bookworm with copics and cut it out with my nestibilities. "First" is stamped with Bling Bet and "Grade" is computer generated. The sentiment is punched out with a SU tag punch. I added brads to the corners, some machine stitching and a Heidi Swapp ghost flower.
