Ann gave us a doozy of a challenge this week! My nephews' birthday is next week, and he is starting kindergarten in a few weeks so I made a little First Day of School package for him!
For the backpack, composition book and pencil holder, I used the Just Add Cake DSP. Love how the alphabet letters are perfect for a school project.
For the composition book, I covered the front and back in the Just Add Cake DSP with a few additional layers. I used the Billboard SIzzlets Strip Die for his name. As a fun accent, I also cut out a circle using the Circles #2 die from chipboard, and a B using Serif Essentials die. I hung it on the cover using a cell phone lanyard; he can leave it on, or take it off and hang it off something else!
The backpack is made from Baja Breeze and Just Add Cake DSP and the top and front are held shut by velcro. You can find the instructions on SCS under resources...here!
Last, but not least, the pencil case is made from Baja Breeze and Just Add Cake DSP. The stamp set I used is retired, from last years Summer Mini, called First Day of School. You can find the instructions for the pencil case Jill here! (Yikes! The post shows up in my google reader from August 4th but doesn't appear to be on her blog?? If you need the dimensions, let me know and I will send them!)
Wonderful Design Team samples as always!!! Please take a minute and check them all out...then join us! I love seeing everyone's creations!
