Back 2 School Card - Mojo Monday 150

Scenic Route Appleton Collection, Bazzill 'Great Lakes' Cardstock, Bazzill 'Avalanche' Cardstock, American Craft Ribbon, Nestabilities Lg Circles, Queen & Co 'Sunflower Yellow' Pearls, Marvy Uchida rounder Corner, EK Success 'Binding Edge' Punch, Kathy Winters Designs Digital Stamp.

Today's card was created for the Mojo Monday 150 - Contest. It will also be part a Back 2 School project I have in mind and will start working on shortly. So be sure to stay tuned.

The card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and uses an older Scenic Route Collection called Appleton. I loved the collection when it first came out and have been saving it ever since. With school starting soon, I thougt it would be a good time to dust it out.

For the sentiment I used a WordArt or Digital Stamp by Kathy Winters Design called 'Back 2 School'. I simply printed it out on white cardstock and used one of my Nestabilities Circles to cut and emboss it.

Overall, it was a quick and simple card to put together.

.cut File Requests

Thank You all for your sweet and kind comments! I've had a few requests for my .cut files and I just want to let those who are waiting know that I have not forgotten about your request. As you all know, Summer is quite a busy time and even more so with 2 kids ages 6 & 3 in the house. I promise to sit down and go thru all the requests in few days. You should get an email from me by the weekend. If you don't hear from me and have requested a file, please send me another email. I might not have a way to contact you. Thank You and I hope you all have a GREAT day!

Thank You Gift Set

Hi Everyone! How is everyone's summer going? Can you believe its already August? I know I can't. DS#1 will be starting 1st grade in September and I know most other states will be starting mid-August. And since time passes by so quickly, I didn't want to go another day without sharing a project with you.

For today, I have a little Thank You Gift Set I made for my son's Kindergarten teacher back in June when school finished. The set includes a card, Hershey Nuggets, and Gift Bag.

Cricut Expression, Design Studio, Gift Bag Card Holder File, Nugget Box File, TES117, PCS Butterfly on Tall Stem Digi Stamp, Elegant WordArt by Bethany, Basic Grey Urban Parire PP, DCWV cardstock, Bazzill 'Berry Blush' Cardstock, Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch, Misc - Ribbon, Buttons, Satin Ribbon

The card was inspired by Taylored Expressions' Sketch Challenge #117 and uses Pink Cat Studio's Butterfly on Tall Stem digital stamp. Now, don't laugh, but the image was colored in using Crayola Colored Pencils and Baby Oil - I hope to soon learn how to color with Prisma Color Pencils.

As always, I also decorated the inside of the card. The sentiment is from Elegant WordArt by Bethany.

The Nugget Box is actually a .cut file I created back in Feburary 2009 and never got around to sharing with you. The box can hold up to 16 Hershey Nuggets, but in this case I only put 8 nuggets inside. I will have more information and the .cut file available for you in a few days.

To hold it all together, I used the same Gift Bag Card Holder .cut file I created using Design Studio for my sister's Graduation Cards.

It has a width of 1", so you can easily fit more than a card inside. Here it is hold the Nugget Box and the Card.
If your interested in the .cut file for the Gift Bag Card Holder, you can either leave me a comment here or in the orginal post requesting the file.  As of right now, the Nugget Box File is not available - It still needs to go under a few tweakings. I will update when the Nugget Box File is complete and ready for sharing.

I hope you've all enjoyed today's project.
