National Scrapbooking Day Brings Challenges

Hello Crafty Friends!

It is getting late here, but I wanted to share a couple cards I made earlier today before I clean up for night. Tomorrow will bring a new day with a couple more cards that will need to be completed. I am finishing up three different orders and I have another one or two that just came in yesterday. Yeah!

This first one is for a young man who has been accepted to University of Florida. Yes, the school colors are blue and orange. I have made Birthday cards using these colors in the past since we have lots of UF fans.
blue, orange, and white card stock
Plantin Schoolbook cartridge ~ circles (2 - 3") and letters (3/4")
Spots Cuttlebug embossing folder
orange gems


The other card is for a 5th grade student that will going to middle school next year. Her school's mascot is the mustang.
white, silver, black, and maroon card stock
Old West cartridge ~ horse (3") and letters/numbers 1/2"
Scrollwork Cuttlebug embossing folder 

Hope you enjoyed a day filled with crafting.

Stay Creative,

  3. Georgiana, I love to make treat boxes for the teachers and I don't like to repeat them since my children have had some of the same teachers for the past 5 years. Even though I have not used it yet, I think Tags, Bags, Boxes 2 is going to be my favorite. Have you seen that one at I just bought it last weekend at JoAnns (they are on sale again this week to for $34.99.
