Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #309 - Back to School

Our challenge this time at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is Back to School.

Challenge #309-Back to School
Create a project that features anything about school

This Weeks Sponsor

The prize is 4 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

In terms of Back to School,  I remember those days well - being so happy that my sons were back in school after a long summer vacation - LOL!  I decided to use the Book Stack image from our sponsor Bugaboo.  It made a cute card, I think:

I used some DP from my stash as a background for the book stack.  I colored the books with Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut it.  I cut the apple and the sentiment from my Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge.  I colored the apple with my SNs, added some clear Wink of Stella, and placed it atop the stack.  I think the apple added a cute pop to the books.  The sentiment is from Artbooking also.
