Back To School

This week we are showcasing Avery Elle Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


Just before I get onto my card for this week I apologise for my lack of visits, my internet is having MAJOR problems (I am really hoping this posts ok) so this will be a short post. We have been told it should be sorted by this time next week (keeping fingers crossed!) Thank you for sticking with me until it is sorted.

I really struggle with children themed cards, I don’t have kids or ever have to make cards for kids so for this one I went for a blackboard style card…not sure if it worked !

I used Avery Elles Be A Unicorn set to stamp the sentiment. I know I was always really nervous and worried going back to school so went with an encouragement style card and added some extras with white gel pen and enamel dots.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too !

Gorgeous card Tracy 🙂 I love that this is an encouraging card, I think most kids feel a little nervous at the start of a school term and this is perfect to pop into a lunch box 🙂 Very cute 🙂

Great school card!

I don’t make kid cards, either. Your card came out great, Tracy–love your additions with the gel pen! Hoping the internet connection gets fixed for you soon!

This was a tricky theme, wasn’t it? But you nailed it!
I love the chalkboard background and those super glossy dots.
