Back To School!


Hi everyone,

It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge over on the Paper Pretties Blog.

This week we are to use “Back To School” as the inspiration for our cards/project.

Paper Pretties does has two fun school themed sets in the Boutique … Back to School Sophia and Look Out World Cooper. As much as I love these two sets … I wanted to play with the new release stamps which I hadn’t used as yet and one of them was this cute Dragon from the Imagine set …. all I had to do was figure out how I could make a dragon relate to back to school LOL.

Now I guess if you were Harry Potter this wouldn’t be much of a problem LOL … cause dragons would fit in … and after some thought I decided that I would create some bookplates which could be placed on or inside books. Here’s what I came up with.


First up I measured the size of the nestabilities die which I would be using and then create a box about that size in my Photoshop program. and then I typed in the text…. This book belongs to I printed these out on a piece of card and then die cut the shape and finally stamped on my image.


Here are the bookplates all packaged up ready to give away.

Want to play along with us:

How to Enter: If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project using the above challenge and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword PWC116.
