Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today is the OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer. And along with the general theme, we’re playing with a tic tact toe challenge.
OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer
So, this is the tic tac toe we were to use along with the End of Summer Theme.
For my creations, I chose to go straight across the middle.
For years, the end of July has signaled the end of summer.
August is the beginning of marching band and thus the beginning of a new school year
Picked for You seemed like the perfect stamp set to signal this shift in my thinking
Back to school means meeting new teachers and school supplies.
My end of summer projects reflect my back to school reality 🙂
So, I used the Picked for You apple in Granny Apple Green as my focal image.
The apple is cut out by hand.
Behind it, I stamped the small splatter from Artisan Textures.
On the 3″ x 3″ note card, I used a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock with a layer
of Garden Impressions designer paper.
Before adhering this layer, I wrapped it in Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
To the apple, I added a single Rhinestone.
And, I added strip of the designer paper to the envelope.
Write a note to the teacher in this pretty card.
Or send in several as a gift that can be used throughout the year.
OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer School Supplies
With back to school comes the need for school supplies.
And in many schools, there is a request to bring in supplies for the classroom.
Pencils are a necessity.
So, I made a simple belly band to wrap my box of pencils
and coordinate with the note card.
Again, I used the Picked for You apple and cut it out by hand.
And to make the belly band, I used Granny Apple Green cardstock with a layer of
Garden Impressions designer paper.
To embellish, I used Whisper White Baker’s Twine and a Rhineston.
These are easy pieces to create so as not to add stress to the end of summer/back to school preparations.
Go ahead and pretty something up that you are sending in!
