Papercraft Star 11

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

Back to school is our Papercraft Star 11 challenge! Use a Cricut cartridge or die cuts for this card.

Well, by now, you all know I don't use cartridges, just my Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) program. Picked up a very cute file from my favorite SCAL site for nearly nothing $$$ wise. I think the cartoon-y feel is charming.

Pretty simple card, and I did go for the grade school feel with it.

Back to school time always feels like New Years to me -like it is a time to renew myself, plan a great year, hunker down for the fall, start thinking about Christmas. September is often still a summer month here in Oregon, but it marks the beginning for me. Love the thought of the trees turning, the nip in the air, the hot drinks, and great smells, all coming up so soon. I know that spring is when most everyone thinks of renewal, but not for me.

Can't wait now to get to all the fall projects !!! Papercraft Star has lots of fun challenges for the fall, and we sure hope you all will join us ! Today our 11th challenge opens, submissions close on Saturday 9/4/10, and voting closes Monday 9/6/10. Please join us - even if you aren't submitting I personally would love to see you on the forums, and voting for your favorite submissions.

  2. Really cute card Jan, and fits my week perfectly..Eric didn't get Up and At 'Em, he laid back down and fell asleep and then he missed the bus!

  3. Nothing symbolizes back to school like the big cheese. All those kiddies with their little backpacks. There are times early morning smells bring back the memories of waiting for the bus. Seems like eons ago . . oh! It was!
