Catherine and Cathy Create Blog Hop

Please join us every month for our THREE Challenges (Monthly Challange, Card Challenge and Tag Challenge) - each due August 31st at Catherine & Cathy Create!!


It's the last stop on the trail... You should have come from Rhea's blog.
GOSH - how amazing is that exploding apple??
WOW! Rhea is such an artist - watch out for her!

OK. So. I LOVE Back to School. I love new crayons and new highlighters. Oh gosh, new exercise books. New binders. I got these new magnetic pencils the other day at Staples.

I first created a card using my retired school notebook lines stamp set then using the notebook punch as well.  It just screamed school to me.  I then grabbed my new Stylin' Girl stamp set and colored.   This is a different card for me.

I couldn't stop there so I started thinking about organization and how my life is just an unorganized mess (like my craft table).  I decided to do up some monogram letter head for my sister... Because ABCs also reminds me of school! These are super simple and with exception from the monogram is from the hostess set Morning Meadow. Did I mention I love the hostess this year?
And one more quick one - thinking about numbers I used this polymer set and some washi.

Of course with every hop Catherine and Cathy Create are offering a PRIZE!  
Up for grabs is the Label Love stamp set in the new Stampin' Up catalog!
