Growing in Unity Day 2 ~ Back to School

Here are with Day #2 of my Growing in Unity week and the theme today is Back to School! For all three projects, I used the School Rock Star set. Such great images that are totally made for scrapbooking all those school releated photos & projects.

The more I look at this page, the more I love it! Not only because of the pictures, but I find all the kraft elements fun and interesting. I used the pencil border stamp at the top of the page and just colored in the pencil tip and the eraser. Then I used the ABC stamp to border the bottom edge. I used my watermark ink pad to add some of the supporting images on the kraft background. I love the fun ABC twill from May Arts too ~ a little bit of texture is always a great touch.

TIP: The journaling card originally said "Report Card" at the top, but that didn't apply to my page. Therefore, I covered up the "Report Card" portion of the stamp with Scotch tape, inked my stamp, removed the tape & then stamped the image on my kraft paper. I just cut it out and replaced the piece over the original. I used my Hero Arts little letter stamps to add the new title of the journaling block and to fill in the details for both kids.

My next two projects were designed to coordinate with the scrapbook page above where I added the twill and wood buttons. The notebook has an embossed label to make it pop off the print. I couldn't resist using the Apple image from the Hodge Podge of Happiness set once again ~ it's a school notebook after all! The card uses the same images that I used on my page, lots of scallops and that fun twill again.

Supplies Used: Stamps ~ Unity Stamp Co. (School Rock Star, Hodge Podge of Happiness); Alphabet stamps ~ Hero Arts; Cardstock ~ Olive, Kraft; Pattern Paper ~ Creative Imaginations; Ink ~ Palette, VersaMark, Copic Markers, atyou Spica glitter pen (brown); Twill ~ May Arts; Buttons & linen thread ~ PTI; Sticker Letters ~ American Crafts; Chipboard letters; Nestabilities ~ Labels 1, Rectangle scallop.
