52 Weeks of Wonder
Back To School…So Soon?
"School may be a month off, but if you’ve got a youngster heading back to class (or a college student off to the dorms), now is a fun time to think about great room décor to get the year started off right. Check out these fun back-to-school makeover ideas complete with a banner, a few Chinese lanterns, a custom white board, a personalized journal (above) and a heartfelt note for good luck.
The wonderful flower shape found throughout the projects was easy to create using Fill in the Blank stamp set (D1465). Create a unique design by stamping a background pattern on a piece of fabric.
Turn the project over then stamp the flower outline image on the back. Trim the flower from the canvas and use the piecing tool to fray the edges. Last, sponge the edges and embellish."
The banner, a few Chinese lanterns, a custom white board and a heartfelt note can all be viewed on Jeanette's blog. Take a minute or two and go check them out.
