Throwback Thursday Challenge #9

Here is my submission for Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge. This week's theme was "Back to School" using the Paisley cartridge. This cart has a lot of cute images, but I really haven't used it as much. I made this card for my niece's teacher. Just a little hello note to let the teacher know that she can count on me for any help in or out of the classroom. I also include a $5 gift card to Starbucks :)

Paisley cart for zebra and car 2"
Paper Doll Dress Up for the road 4"x1"
George and Basic Shapes for the school sign 2" ( I had to hand write the "SCHOOL" because I couldn't find a cart for it)
My Pink Stamper stamp set for the "HELLO"
SU cardstock
EK Success dotted scallop punch
Ribbon from DollarTree

Tri fold shutter card

Here is my first attempt at a tri fold shutter card. I total forgot take pictures before I wrote out my card, so I've cut out my greeting :). I made this card for my friend as a "just because". I was excited to create this shape of card and super excited to use Rock Princess
I didn't realize that the skull has about 6 different layers. Hahaha I only did 3

I was lucky enough to come across a great tutorial showing how to score and cut the card. I found the video on Erin Lee's blog. She is a current MPS design team member. Click here to see her GREAT video

Forever Young booklet project

I volunteered mysef to be a guest designer for Kricut Tangee's blog Kricut Krazy
Her goal is to have all the projects from all the Cricut booklets on her blog, but since she doesn't own all of the carts, she asked if anyone would help her out. I offered to do the project in Forever Young. It is a simple 3D purse. Here is my take on it.
I tried to stick to the example as closely as I could. I did not have any glittered purple paper so what I did was add some Stickles to the plain purple paper. The binder also called for glitter white and purple ribbon, but since I didn't have those either I went with a cream colored ribbon.
