Cricut 360° Blog Challenge #8 ... Back To School


Happy Friday! Here's my project for this week's Cricut 360° Blog challenge ... where we're headed "Back To School".
For my project, I decided to alter a notebook. I started with an inexpensive composition book and covered it with paper I printed using my Imagine and the Imagine More cartridge. Then I used my Gypsy with George & Basic Shapes to make the chalkboard frame and backed it with black cardstock. The font is from Lyrical Letters ... sized and welded with my Gypsy.
I added some frosted gems (from Martha Stewart), lots of ribbon and a cute little owl charm.
Of course, I needed an apple, so I went with the apple and books from Hello Kitty ... sometimes I forget what a versatile cartridge this is!

So, there you have it! Now it's you're turn ... head on over to the Cricut 360° Blog and show us your "Back To School" stuff!!

Thanks for stopping by ...
