Hello Everyone and Welcome to another Monday challenge from Bitten By The Bug 2! As everyone knows September and School just go together and this week's challenge is from the Amazing and Very Talented Regina who chose the Crayola Box from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More. I kinda went traditional with the crayon box and crayons, (don't tell anybody but I LOVE a new box of crayons! lol, and I'm sure there are alot of you out there that do to!) I love back to school time and all the good ole school supplies. I like going to the office supply store (and the hardware store) almost as much as going to the craft stores! When we get McCade his school supplies I always have to pick up a few things also (giggle)! He actually started school August 11th (my birthday!) this year, so he's been in for a month so far. We actually have parent teacher conference's this Monday so he is home today. (Okay, I'm off track again so back to the challenge.............................................)
The Crayola box from TBBM!
I haven't played with this cart is along time so it was almost like getting a new cart, lol. I went traditional school cards and made these for McCades teacher. I made the box into a holder for six cards. I added the A+ Teacher (McCade REALLY likes his teacher's this year and so far loving it!) and then the cards I added Thank You on the front's and she can use them as Thank You notes. Kind of a dual meaning. McCade and I think she is an A+, so Thank You form Us, and then she can actually use the notes as Thank You notes! Here's a close up of the actual Crayola Box with the cards inside.
I made the card in Design Studio and welded the blackout tritop tag pg. 87 together after I shrunk it to the size I thought was a good looking crayon. Then I welded a square from George and Basic Shapes. The lettering and Apple is from Plantin Schoolbook. The crayons on the cards are each separate crayons attached to the card base and then a space for a note was added. On the fronts of the cards the various saying are a cuttlebug die and emboss folder and the scallops and circles were cut using my Nestabilites then embossed. The Edger Punch is an EK Success punch (I think it's called binding edge) And last but not least the Paper is a DCWV stack, Grade School Premium stack, love it, it's perfect for all the school pics and for some of the teacher's gift's for the year. I used it for the Teacher gift's for McCade's 3rd grade teacher's little mini books HERE, you can take a look if you haven't seen them or forgot what they looked like. Well here's one more look at the Note Cards:
So don't forget to stop by BBTB2 and take the challenge and see what all the other amazingly talented Design Team did with their Crayola Boxes. I love to see all the different ways the gals minds think and what they come up with. That is one reason I just LOVE Monday's! Hope you all play along with us this week, you could possibly win our lovely weekly challenge winner button/blinkie also! Wouldn't that just be an honor to display that on your blog! Well I'm going to try and post some pics of my new craft space. It's not completely finished but I have it organized and it was so nice to actually use it for the first time this weekend, I have a couple of things I have to add before it will be totally done but I can surely say, It beats the heck out of the kitchen table, LOL!!!
So Take Care and Froggie ((Hugs)) Theresa
