Back To My New Toy!

I'm so excited to finally get some crafting done this week. Lots has happened over the summer and there are some great photos just waiting to be made into layouts.

I had an amazing vacation in the sunny Okanagan that begged for another month.. lol. I just reorganized my craft area too. I picked up this 4 sided rotating pegboard on Used Victoria....LOVE IT! It has become my new embellishment center and I can see everything.. brads, rhinestones, Stickles, Liquid Pearls. I could use another one though... Heeheee.

And finally as all the kids are going back to school (not that I have any yet!), and I've started a new job. I hope everyone had a great summer too!

Now back to my new toy, I finally got to play with the Print and cut feature. Did I happen to mention how much in LOVE I am with my Cameo?!

I made a Back 2 School treat for a special little back-to-schooler. I used the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Clipboard and Cool Sun cutting files to make a tag about 3 3/8" tall. Then I added some blue text, shrank them down and ran it through the printer, finally sending it to the Cameo to cut.

I filled a star treat bag with a box of Crayons, crayon shaped erasers, a soccer ball bookmark and a granola bar. Made a bow with some star ribbon and finished it with a blue star button.

I will be entering this into the PPPR Back to School Challenge. Make sure to head on over to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store and check out all the fabulous designs. There is even a Freebie every Friday!
