Today for Monday Craft Madness we have a treat. Laurel Seabrook is a fantastic Designer on the My Mind’s Eye design team. She created the most awesome cards using Now & Then Milo & Izzy Collections to make some teacher cards. I for one am thrilled that my kids are back to school soon and getting them through each year is always smoother if they have a great teacher…. So today’s theme is:
Back to School
Check out the projects and Laurel’s blog post from the My Mind’s Eye Blog.
Hi everyone, Laurel here. As a teacher I was quite happy to get the assignment of teacher cards! I am a sucker for anything school related and that includes notebook or ledger type of paper.
One thing I love to is use non-themed collections for themed cards and I thought the Now and Then collections would work perfectly for this assignment. I started with the Now and Then Milo collection to create a couple of simple masculine cards.
Easy to do with layering of the paper, chipboard and stickers. I then chose to create a card using the Now and Then Izzy as I thought the map paper would be perfect for a teacher card.
I put my Silhouette to work and die cut an apple and a frame for this fun card and once again went to work layering. I thought I was done but then the Cut & Paste Flair was calling my name so I dug into it as well.
Supplies:Now & Then- Milo: 6 X 6 pad; Friends Accent Stickers; Documented Chipboard; Now & Then-Izzy: 6 X 6 pad; Good Times 3 X 4 pack; Cut & Paste- Flair: 6 X 6 pad; Today 5X7 Sticker Sheet; Wow Chipboard Stickers
