Connie Can Crop DT ~ Paper Nest Doll

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using a digi image from Paper Nest Dolls. 

I'll be honest, I never used a digi stamp before...But now? I love them! I opened the stamp up in my silhouette program, traced it and made cut lines so the machine would cut it out. Of course, my mat is loosing its sticky-ness so about 3/4 of the way and it comes off the mat! I ended up hand cutting the rest. I'll list all of my supplies below...I used lots of goodies on this one! 

~ Supplies Used ~ 
Jaded Blossom Fall Dies (for the apple and sign)
Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies (polka dot mat)
Jaded Blossom School Rules (for sentiment)
Close to my Heart Markers 
Le Plume Markers
Pop Dots (on apple and girl)

Thanks for stopping by!

I made this cute picture frame for open house at my kids school next week. I am the PTSA President for our elementary school and thought this would be cute to get kids and parents excited about a new school year! We will be doing photo ops at our table =) 

I bought a photo mat from michaels and painted it blue (school colors are blue and gray, we are the dolphins!). All my images are from the Sil Store (except the words, I picked some fonts I love and went with it!). 

I hope you enjoyed my project for today =)

August Challenge #37 Chalk it Up

Looking for the Lazy Days of Summer Hop? Click here!
But, while your here...Go to Connie's blog and enter her monthly challenge! 

August is here! Where did the time/months go!? I can't believe my boys will be going back to school in 23 days!!! (doin' the happy dance over here! can ya' feel it!?) 

Connie has a great monthly challenge for August! The theme is Chalk. Either chalk paint, using chalk, chalk vinyl, etc. 

You must be linked up by Aug. 31, and no back linking (but you can find all the details on Connie's website!)

Here's what I made ~ 

I had these glass handle mason jars in my pile of goodies for the longest time! I cut out a letter A from my silhouette and put that on 1st. Then, I painted it with chalkboard paint I bought from Targets $1 spot (it was $3).  I'm so not the patient person so I pealed the A off when it was dry almost dry. I made the cutest tag for it. I had these witch feet for about 2 years now and knew I needed to make something for my sister with them (her bday is on Halloween!). I added some washi tape to the bottom of the glass and around the lid. Added the best spiders and web and some paper twine. I added a few goodies from Connies CTMH site as well!

Supplies I used ~ 
$1 tree mason jar
Target chalkboard paint
Michaels paper twine
