Now that most everyone is back in school for the new year... I thought I would try my hand at creating a few things using one of our fun new lines... LEARNING CURVE. This line has everything you need to make your school themed projects shine! Love the flash to the past going on here with the sweet vintage twist. The aged but somehow still bright and fun primary colors work perfectly for this theme and so many others.
Let me share how I played with LEARNING CURVE....
How about altering a can to create a specific place for the kids' "School tools" or "Homework Helpers"? And a new bookmark for the new school year is always a fun treat. The many different cutouts that come with this line make creating one a snap.
I had fun combining my love of paper, woodcrafts and painting with this little project. I cut a "3" out of wood using my scroll saw then painted and altered it. You can find wooden numbers and letters at most craft stores. Then I used one of those 4x6 clear acrylic tabletop picture frames to add Cassidy's photo to and glue to wood base.
Next is a notebook I altered to create an address book where my girls' can keep their friends' contact info safely inside. This beats trying to keep track of all the little notes and small pieces of paper they stash in their rooms and backpacks.
And of course I just HAD to scrap a back-to-school layout! I used my exacto knife and cut around just enough of the large books on this Learning Curve paper to be able to slide my photo in "behind" them. The huge brackets I created using some Learning Curve Letters paper. The "mini chalk board" is one of the cutouts and I used my white Sharpie to achieve a chalk look. (I hope! HA!)
Okay! Now it's your turn to share. What fun back-to-school themed projects are you working on? Can't wait to see! Have a great week!
