Just a Note


Hello, It is Photo Week over at Just Us Girls and Lisa E has chosen a Back to School Picture for us. You would think with my background of working in the school system for 24 years that I would have oodles of School themed products. Well, that is NOT the case! When I was working, I used to always dread going into a store and seeing the Back to School signs and it would make me so sad cause I knew Summer was coming to an end! However, that is in the past, and I certainly don’t have to worry about that anymore. YAY! With that being said, I did scrounge through all of my supplies in search of something that would work and found this cute Paper die to save me!

Card Details: The Paper Die is from Paper Smooches. I drew the lines on after I colored my flower (should have left them off) with Prisma Colored Pencils. That flower is an old block stamp that I have had for ages. The greeting is from MFT.

The rest of the DT and our guest-Cathy did a far better job than I did! Come by and check them out! Also, I need to say thanks to my buddy Cathy for being with us the past month, you did an incredible job and we were lucky to have you! Take care, Nanc’

  1. I think I gave away most of my school stamps when I retired! I love the perforated paper die…like it was torn out of a notebook! Cute, cute card with the colors you chose too!

  2. I think the lines your added look great, Nancy! Love that die. This is a terrific card!

  3. How funny that you, Carol and I – all being educators – have so few school-themed products in our respective stashes. Like you, back-to-school came with bitter sweet feelings. Glad to be retired (although I still have school dreams often! Yikes!). Your card is super sweet, especially the pretty flower on the notebook paper.

  4. Nancy… gorgeous florals!

  5. Pretty card – love the “sheet of paper” die too

  6. I love the direction you took with this challenge with the pretty flowers on the note paper. I personally love the added lines 🙂

  7. Love the notepad look of this Nancy, great for back to school or any occasion, thankyou to you and the team for having me this month, Cathy x

  8. I think the lines are perfect and really give a ‘note’book feel to that die cut panel, Nancy.

  9. Clever take on our photo challenge Nancy. Such a lovely card and great layout.
