Welcome to Lets Get Scrappy Together and the 8th Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!
Summer is coming to an end and we are all getting ready for BACK TO SCHOOL...each Design Team member will be featuring an original BACK TO SCHOOL project that includes a school related item, such as crayons, rulers, pencils, book, school bus, ect. with at least one Cricut cut.
If youve come from visiting Kate at Small Bits of Paper , youre in the right place! If youve just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
Be sure to check out each Design Team members blog for some great inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our Design Team members blogs, and there will be a GRAND PRIZE up for grabs at FANTABULOUS CRICUT for one participant that submits a "BACK TO SCHOOL" project!
How fun is that?
Now, on to my BACK TO SCHOOL projects...
Bookbag and notepads!
For these projects I used the following cartridge and measurements. Campin' Critters-
backpack (pg 69), cut at 11 1/2 inches...and book (pg 70), cut at 4 inches.
Embellishments used were buttons along with leaf bud green and ocean blue ink. I also left the bed roll off of the top of the backpack to give it more of a bookbag look.
The books can actually be used for little notepads...they have lined paper inserted inside
for writing on.
Front of "pop up" card (5x7)
Inside...arent those lil' worms cute?
For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements. Car Decals-girl #5/family
(pg 63), cut at 1 1/2 inches and boy #5/family (pg 65), cut at 1 1/2 inches...Create a Critter-apple/shadow(pg 25), cut at 3 inches and caterpillar/shadow (pg 54), cut at 2 3/4 inches and 3 inches...Kate's ABCs-welcome back/school days, cut at 1 inch...Plantin SchoolBook-mixed letters and numbers, cut at 1 inch...
This was really an easy card to make and a lot of fun too...The only extras added, were chalkboard paper and the googly eyes! I had planned on using chalk on the inside, but found that it smeared quite a bit...and didnt have a clean look, so I decided to go with a paper that was close to chalk in color.
