Back To School with the Lawnscaping Challenge!

Hi, crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I’m stopping in today to share my entry for the current Lawnscaping challenge! The theme is “Back to School”, and even though I don’t have any little ones (or big ones) heading off to school soon, I made this bookmark:
I used papers from the “Into the Woods” 6×6 Petite Paper Pad, the “Winter Owl” stamp, the small graduation cap from the “So Much To Say” set, and the sentiment comes from the “Science of Love” stamp set. I made my own cork reinforcement and tassel to finish off the bookmark.
For more details on this challenge, and to link up your entry, please visit the Lawnscaping Challenge blog!
I’ll be back on Tuesday with a post at the Sweet Stamp Shop blog, and the newest digis from Some Odd Girl Stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope your week is off to a great start!

Some Odd Girl Stamps has the cutest School Supplies!

Hi, everybody! Welcome back to the second day of the new release at Some Odd Girl Stamps!
I have to say, my favorite part of every new school year when I was growing up was buying school supplies! From the cutest pencils, notebooks and folders to the coolest Trapper Keeper binder, I loved picking out everything! I still have a love for school/office supplies even though my school days are long gone!

I’m sure it’s no surprise that I had a blast putting faces on the stamps in this month’s release. Here’s my first card with “School Supplies“:

I also used the A+ stamp from the “Teacher Mae” set…I love how both sets work so well together!
Lucky for me, this set has a happy face, so I can add smiles to the pencil and crayon stamps and create my own happy notebook paper! (Did you notice my happy ruler from yesterday’s post?)

 And why have just one crayon when you can have a whole rainbow of happy colors?

Here’s a peek at the “School Supplies” set; it’s a perfect companion to the new “Teacher Mae” set!

 
You can find more inspiration with “School Supplies” AND “Teacher Mae” at the Some Odd Girl blog, and both of the new clear sets are available NOW in the Some Odd Girl Store!
We’re halfway through July, but there’s still time to link up your Some Odd Girl projects with this month’s Linky Party on the Some Odd Girl blog! All you have to do is link up your latest Some Odd Girl projects for a chance at being featured, or winning some fabulous prizes! (You’ll find the linky tool on the right side of the SOG blog!)
Did you know that Some Odd Girl Stamps now has a Pinterest board for Oddies to pin their creations? You’ll find all of the info on joining the new board on the Some Odd Girl Stamps Facebook group!
Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

Class is in session with Teacher Mae at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new clear stamp release at Some Odd Girl Stamps, and we’re getting a head start on the new school year with “Teacher Mae“, the first of two new sets available today in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store!
After I colored the main image, I chose one of the sentiments from the set and made a chalkboard, because you can’t have class without one! (And of course, Mae gets a gold star because she’s so wonderful!)
I’m trying to work on different clothing patterns, so I attempted a tweed skirt. I think I’ll use smaller lined pens next time to get a finer pattern.
I also couldn’t resist making a sticky note holder with the ruler stamp in the set. (There’s a little sneak peek at tomorrow’s set…I love that I could put a happy face on the ruler!)

You can find more inspiration with “Teacher Mae” at the Some Odd Girl blog, and both of the new clear sets are available NOW in the Some Odd Girl Store!
Even though we’re in the middle of July, there’s still time to link up your Some Odd Girl projects with this month’s Linky Party on the Some Odd Girl blog! All you have to do is link up your latest Some Odd Girl projects for a chance at being featured, or winning some fabulous prizes! (You’ll find the linky tool on the right side of the SOG blog!)
Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow with more new release projects! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

TGF FFF: Back to School

Hello, friends of the Farm! Are you ready for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge?
 
It’s been a busy week here at my house; we’re getting some things done in the yard and inside the house. I’m also working on my DT assignments for next week because we’re having company come to visit! If you have kids going back to school, I’m sure it’s busy at your house, too!
 
Our theme for this week’s Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm is “Back to School.” While I don’t have anyone heading back to the classroom, I thought this would be a cool project you can adapt for anybody who needs reminders or has a to-do list!
 
I repurposed an old CD case to make this sticky note holder. I did have to take it apart and flip the front side to make the holder stand up, but that’s the most difficult part of the process!
 
I used the “Valentine Anya” digi and an apple stamp from my collection on the holder. I had to cut her hands and reposition them so she could hold the apple.
 
I also added gloss to the chipboard letters to the glitter wouldn’t flake off.
 
For all the details on this challenge, stop by The Greeting Farm blog!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
 
Hugs,
