School Primer

I really don’t want to think about back to school just quite yet, but I DID have fun creating a few more designs with Becky‘s new School Primer All Things Considered set. My absolute favorite images from this set are the journaling ATC background…I think I may use that frame on everything!, & that darling little girl reading a book. That was me. 😉 I read a book between classes, while walking to school, staying up late under the covers…just about everywhere. My favorite way to relax is still reading a book. School Primer is released today and you can find other sweet samples here.

 The End


Quick Tip: Repeatedly stamp a smaller stamp to create a background.

 My Dear Children


Back in the 80’s, I had a lovely argyle vest and socks for back to school one year! LOL I still associate argyle patterns with school. And seriously…I just can’t get enough of this Lemonade 6×6 paper pad by Basic Grey. I’ve created SO many designs out of this one little pad of paper! While I’ve loved the other lines and paper pads,  this one has the most paper missing by far!
