I loved school and was a bit of a girly swot! But back to school was always filled with trepidation until I got to know my new teachers and class mates. The one thing I absolutely loved was getting a new pencil case and stationery! And yep I still love pens and papers........lol!!!
I made a desk set for my son, Ossian. He is 10, so I kept it 'cool' (maybe!).
The empty caddy is from the 99p store and I painted it in cream acrylic paint. Then used mod podge to cover with ink distressed papers, followed by more inking over the box edges.
Made a notebook with my WRMK Cinch. Added ribbons, clips and eyelets. I used Graphically Speaking cricut cart for the sign on the book and for the magnetic paper clips. All cut at 2" and inked and embossed in places.
I covered a maths geoemtry set and die cut his name from Life's A Party at 0.75". He's not going to lose this at School!! lol.
My son has a magnetic message board so I thought the big clips would be perfect for attaching home work/ notes etc.
I covered a pencil and stapler in paper. The School Zone was glued to acetate and can be used as a bookmark.
Finally, I wanted to stamp a card. I do so much on my cricut these days, I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy stamping.
How cute is that little school boy? He is Lili of the Valley stamp. I love how this turned out.
The papers throughout are Lime Twist by My Mind's Eye. Hardware on the card is by WRMK. Image coloured with Promarkers and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink used throughout.
Next stop on the hop is the lovely Adrian's blog. If you just happened to drop in, do go to Jovan's at the beginning of the blog hop. She is hosting a challenge, so do make sure you enter for a chance to win some of her blog candy.
But just before you go, I have some blog candy to give away. I have a Back to School Girl and a Back to School Boy, Lili of the Valley stamp.

I am entering my desk set over at Whimsical Wednesdays - Back to School, no cards and at My Sheri Crafts - #66 Back to School. Also, I am entering my card over at Sir Stampalot - Anything Goes.
