Back to School!

Happy Friday bloggers!  Aren't those some of the sweetest words ever? 

I’ve got a fun little school inspired card to share with you today. How can we head into the month of September without thinking “Back to School”?!! The moment I looked through our September Club Q kits, those rich beautiful colors of the Cherry Truffle line made me think apple!


Tips and Techniques
- Used my Cricut Expression 2 to create my die-cut images.
- Use the relief of the border laser cut from the kit and attached under the ribbon.
- A bit of cream burlap trimmed to fit and fringed a bit, along with some cream ric-rak provided an anchoring point for my apple collage.

Non-Kit Items Used
Burlap
Ric-rak
Kraft cardstock
Coredinations Jenni Bowlin cream ruler cardstock
Ruler Ribbon
Martha Stewart mini tag punch
Cream Hemp
Powder Puff Chalking Inks: Marischino Cherry, Midnight Confessions and Amaretto
Cream cardstock from August Club Q Kit

What does the Cherry Truffle line inspire you to create? We can’t wait to see! We would love it if you share your creations with us using your Club Q kits in the Idea Gallery link on the blog!!!

Have a super scrappity day!
