TKJ#187 - Ruffles - Back To School

Good Morning everyone!  This is my second post of the day, for my Paper Sweeties post, click here. :-)  I hope you also got a chance to see the other post from the weekend as well. Click here for the Halloween Facebook Treat post.


It's time for a new challenge at The Kraft Journal.  This week the challenge is ruffles.  Well, school is starting tomorrow in my area. I know many have been back to school for awhile. It really seems like the summer flew by. Our kiddos get out later here, and we had some time added on with all the snow days we encountered this year. It just doesn't seem possible that it's September.  

Well, that brings me to my card, I decided to create a Back to school card!
What is more appropriate for this theme then to ruffle some Vintage Dictionary Pages?  I started my card with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock where I added some school bus patterned paper.

Next I took a piece of red cardstock and cut down to a square and embossed with an ABC embossing folder. Using a school bus file found at the Silhouette Store, I used my Silhouette to cut it out and I placed inside a white die-cut circle and stamped the Back to School sentiment from Paper Sweeties just below.  Taking a piece of Vintage Dictionary Page, I ruffled it along the bottom.  Then I wrapped Red Baker's Twine around the card front several times finishing off with a length of Black Twill Tape tied off in a bow embellished with a red button laced with Red Baker's Twine.
Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your "Ruffles" creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also sharing over at My Craft Spot: Back To School, Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes, Craftin' Desert Divas' - Anything Goes, Scrapbook Blessings Club - Anything Goes.

Have a great Monday!

What a cute school bus. I love the paper and the ruffled dictionary pages. Cute as can be. I love that school started in your area in Sept. instead of early August. In my opinion, August is much too early.
