School For Changito

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am so excited to be Guest Designing for White Rose Crafts this month! The optional theme for the Sketch Challenge is BACK TO SCHOOL. It's time already! So I made this cute little card from the School For Changito for my twin sister who is a teacher.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What was your favorite grade in school?
A: Me? I love 3rd grade (see pic below and play the guessing game... which one is which?). My third grade teacher was amazing! And I loved learning cursive which I don't think kids do anymore... I am aging myself!

First Day of School in Third Grade! Guess which one is which? I'm Meghan, Her Name Is Lauren

 I started my card with the chalkboard pattern paper as my panel 4 x 5.25 mounted on my red card base.
 I used other papers from the pack to fill in the squares and rectangles, I used the glue and scissors, the pencils and the lined paper.
 I die cut a white banner so that the sentiment would stand out from all the patterned papers.
 After I taped all the characters and different school supplies on the card, I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment and the A+. I finished my card with some little red gems on either side of the banner.

Crafting With Aunt Meghan (Simon Says Stamp Summer Kids Challenge)

Hi Crafty Friends,
This past weekend I went to PA to visit all my family. My identical twin sister, Lauren; niece Annie 3; nephew Thomas 5, then my brother, Ryan was in from Ireland with my other niece Polly 2; nephew William 8, and my mom and dad live a mile away from my sister. Anyway, it was a BLAST! I love my nieces and nephews they are SOOOO CUTE and their interactions are hilarious.

I decided I would encourage them to CREATE like Aunt Meghan by entering them all in the Simon Says Stamp Summer Kids Challenge. So I set up a kids card making center and bought glitter glue and glittery pom poms since the theme was SPARKLE. Here are the results! Enjoy!
Snacks are essential for crafting
