Hi there everyone. Michele Kovack here from Thoughts of a Cardmaking Scrapbooker! I am so excited to be sharing here with you! I feel a bit "out of the loop" lately and am so happy for this opportunity to connect with all of you!
As many of you know I am a teacher....a 5th grade teacher to be exact. School is in full swing, and life has gotten a wee bit crazy! Soon I will be back in a routine and it will feel like I never left. ; )
So of course I had to make a school house. A vintage school house at that! I used the new Something to Remember cartridge. It is such a cute cartridge and I just fell in love with this image. I love making shaped cards because I feel they are so much more interesting....so I welded the two school house cuts using CCR. I used all of the layers and added a bit of vellum behind the windows.
Lace, seam binding, and a glittery wooden button were added to add a bit of charm....
And of course a flower....I can't seem to help myself from adding a flower to everything lately.
I am so glad to have had the opportunity to guest design here today....
.and reconnect with old friends, and make new ones!
