Back to School | by Jeanne Jachna


I hope you’re having a great day!  There’s so much going on in the Craft section in the store!  If you haven’t stopped by in a while you want to check out the “What’s New” tab!  There’s some new layered dies as well as some great stand alone dies!  There’s new stamp sets and accessories like washi and clips are being added every day!


Fall is in the air and I’m seeing the buses picking up kids early in the morning!  I thought I’d make a special thank you for teacher with the new Home Sweet Home die.  This die is so versatile.. I can imagine lots of uses for it.. congratulations on a new home, a we’ve moved card.. an invite for Thanksgiving or Holiday feast.. how about a haunted house in black and grey?

For my sunny day I started with a panel of blue card stock.  I added clouds with Light Molding Paste spread through the openings of the  Memory Box Mini Clouds Stencil.  When it dries the clouds are thick and puffy and add great texture to the card.

Two die cut circles (Memory Box Open Studio Circle Basics) cut from yellow card stock make an easy sun and hand cut waves of green card stock make a hilly landscape.  The house die is amazing.. there’s lots of detail.  All the window outlines cut completely from the house frame so you can change colors easily.  The roof has a scallop embossed design, the front door has embossed panels, and there is a separate cornice between the roof and the house so they attach seamlessly.

I added an apple for teacher from An Apple A Day, and a simple “thanks” word die called Calligraphy Pop Thanks.  The word die comes as shown with a second outline die so you can add more detail if you like.

Wishing you sunny skies!  Have a great day!
