PaperCrafter's Corner Magazine Monday #157
PaperCrafter's Corner's inspiration piece was the obvious: children going off to school. I only got this one picture of Sequoia's first day this year. . .and I think it's the same view I got last year, her standing by the chalk drawing of the school's puma mascot. The title piece and slide are svgs from the generous #misskatecuttables. Where I got discouraged was putting them into Cricut Design Space and finding it was going to take about 20 mats. I'm physically not up to that this week, especially after taking a fall (in that messy family room I scrapped last week!). But this morning I came up with the idea of doing a "print and cut." That took all the work and worry out.
The background paper, which looks like school paper, is from #DCWV Magnolia stack. To fill the page, I had to stay simple so I went with the stars in the title, punched a bunch and scattered them around. It looks better in person. It actually turned out pretty cute. :o)
Edited: While I was working on the cut-and-print part of this, my 20-month-old grandson turned off my computer. I gave up for the day. The next day when I tried again, I somehow switched the cuttable from Miss Kate to the kindergarten one! This is first grade! It hit me hard the day after I posted. It all got fixed before it went into her scrapbook. :o)
