Back to School

Each month I have a wonderful group of ladies that gathers for my stamp club. We make a variety of projects each month. Generally we make a card, a scrapbook page and a 3-D item of some sort. With school is in full swing everywhere I thought it would be a nice focus for our scrapbook page last month.
I LOVE the new Owl Punch. He is fun to dress up and soooo easy to use. The Designer Series Paper on his chest is from the Gala Greenhouse collection. It is also used on the strip across the bottom portion. I used it as my inspiration for my color scheme. (Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, and Real Red) Some of the colors only got little hints in the embelishments I made with the "Beary Bright" Build-A-Bear Sizzlits Die. The journaling block in the lower right corner was first punched with the Spiral Border Punch. I then tour a little off the top and bottom before crumpling it to give it that used notebook paper look.
The simple title was done with the "Rough Type" alphabet from the summer mini catalog. The new clear stamp option made this easy to do. Simply place all the letters on one clear block and then stamp at the same time. Worried that the letters will not line up correctly? Do as I did and stamp them crooked on purpose.
