Back to School Friday FUN: Part 2!


Hi there bloggers! Welcome to the second installment of our fun weekly school themed line up for the month of August! Be sure to continue tuning into our blog & store this month for lots more Back to School sales and fun!

This week we have the amazing Kelly Alvarez from the always fun and inspiring Lawn Fawn brand!  Check out the list of supplies below to make your own fun version of this card!  The only item featured that's not quite available yet is the Dewy Decimal paper collection. Be sure to check back later this month for all that is new and fabulous from Lawn Fawn!



A couple fun tips from Kelly when recreating this adorable card, for ease in fussy cutting, try the designers favorite, cutter bee scissors!  Also, when stamping the images, Kelly inked up the stamp, stamped it on a scratch paper and then stamped it on her project to get that faded school paper look.


I hope you enjoyed this fun card and we'll see you soon with more Back to School fun! Have a great weekend!

Steph
