When I think of Back to School.............

I think of fall! The air gets crisper, I can hear the trains in the distance and the leaves start to turn so many amazing colors. 

I am Randi from www.craftycricutcreations.blogspot.com I am so happy to be a part of this blog. I have had my cricut fetish since May of 2006. Since then my creating styles has changed greatly. I must use my cricut for something at least once a day.

Each month we will have a Theme of the Month that our designers may follow. Our theme forSeptember is End of Summer...projects can run the gamet from Back to School, Vacations or  Things We Loved About Summer.
 Here is my project for this months theme.........I made fall note cards and gave a set the elementary school teacher my dd has this year.

1 made a set of 4 just like this. The note card is cut 4x8 out of kraft cardstock then folded in half to make a 4x4 note card. I cut the patterned card topper at 3 3/4 x 2 3/4.  I cut the polka dot paper 3 3/4 x 2 and overlapped them a bit then added brown grossgrain ribbon to hide the seam I cut the bird from the Cricut 3 Birds on Parade cartridge at 3 inches as well as all of his layers, using various colors of Bazzill cardstock. There are so many cute birds on this cartridge it was hard to decide.
I then cut out square envelopes at 4 1/4 inches from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge page 29 I cut it a bit bigger to allow for my bird being on pop dots.
