Back To School Challenge

This month at Pattie’s Creations Design Challenge we are having a Back To School Challenge.
Here in Australia, we don’t have long school holidays in the middle of the year, we have them over the Christmas break.  But in our house, we don’t have them at all!  Or should that be, we have them all the time!??  We are a homeschooling family, so we don’t have back to school at all.

I have used the very cute Mr Bookworm With Books image, and since my son reads heaps of books, I thought I would make him a book mark.

The image has been coloured with Copic Markers, and I have used some patterned papers from my stash, and mounted it on some red cardstock – my son’s favourite colour!
Please share with us your Back To School projects at Patties Creations, we love to see what you have been creating.
Happy stamping!

Ribbon or Lace Challenge

This week’s Crafty Boots Challenge is to use Ribbons or Lace on your project.
I made this set for my sister for her birthday recently, and have used some lovely laces.

The laces are both from Stampin’ Up! the wider one is retired (unfortunately), and the narrower one is the current Venetian Crochet Trim.  The gorgeous papers are some that were in my stash, so can’t even tell you who designed them or where they came from.  Then I have used the Butterflies Thinlits Die for the large butterfly, with a stamped and coloured butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set over the top.

So please show us your pretty projects this week at Crafty Boots Challenges.
Happy Stamping!

Owly Thanks

I’m not entirely sure that “Owly” is a word, but you get the idea!  Hopefully all of the recipients of these little thank you cards have received them by now, so it’s ok to post them here.

I love this gorgeous Owl punch but it has been very much neglected.  So he got a work out making some thank you cards, and while I was at it, I thought I would make a book mark for my son, who always has numerous books on the go at once, so we can never have too many book marks in our house!

Happy stamping!
