Paper Cutz Challenge

Hi Crafters,

Wanted to invite you to PCC this week to join us in the fun challenge.   Make a card, LO or craft project for teacher appreciation using any colors you’d like.  This week I made these backpack for my daughters teacher.
Aren't they just too cute.  I got the idea from splitcoast stampers.  Wow you can find almost anything at this web site.  Check it out.
The template is there I used it to cut these out of heavy printed paper.  I added brads and cut out the scallop at 1.75 and 1.50 inches.
The word "Thanks" is cut at 1.25 inches.

Here is a picture of the back of the backpacks. 

Hope that you liked these.  I love them they are so cute.
I hope to see your project in our challenge at Paper Cutz Challenge this week.

To get a great tutorial for these backpack and the template go to splitcoast stampers.  See you all again soon

Paper Cutz Challenge #91

Hey Crafters,
Sure have been missing you all but been crazy work hours the last few weeks.  But  this week has slowed down this week and I got a chance to get in my craft room.  And what a great week at Paper Cutz Challenge.  If you need  a reason to get started on your graduation cards, LOs, or projects this is the challenge to get going with.  At PCC this week the challenge is to make a card, LO or project for graduation using any color that you would like.  So head on over to PCC and check the great DTs projects this week and add yours and have a chance of winning.
Here is my project for the week:

I make this LO for my daughters high school graduation.  She is our baby and the last to graduate til the grand babies which will be awhile.
I used the Cricut cartridge Wild Card
The cap, scroll, words, numbers are cut at 8 1/2 inches.
The spaces for the pictures are 6 x 6 and then I used a punch to punch around them.
I added the jewels with my I-rock for the journaling space.  I cannont wait til Monday when she graduates to add the pictures to it. 
I hope you enjoyed my project and I will see your project at PCC this week and every week.
