Apple school kit

Cuttlebug challenge blog never seizes to inspire me and their design team is just awesomely inspirational so this week's challenge was another "must do" challenge. We were to combine our love for cuttlebug products with Cosmo Cricket products to make a school inspired ensemble. Yup this girl was definitely fitting in her comfort zone with this challenge.

Apple School kit

I used some Get happy, a little bit of cogsmo and sunshine papers for this project. I just bought the Argyle embossing folder so I used that one here too plus my favorite swiss dot folder. Can't get enough of that baby!

For the apple, I cut it out from the Cricut expressions using the plantin schoolbook cartridge in a roly poly style (so it's fatter than usual)

Some close ups....



altered a paper lunch box. I love this box and so glad I have more to alter. I already dressed up one here on this post.


prettied up a pack of #2 pencils.


a couple of thank you notes


and some altered post it note holders. I made a tutorial for this a long time ago which is one of my most popular posts so if you wanna check it out, click here.

Thank you for looking.

Till next time,
Grace
