Ginger Snap Scraps Back to School Blog Hop

Welcome to our Back To School Blog Hop with the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team!

This weekend we will be featuring projects all about Back To School. Can you believe school has started!?

We hope you enjoy all of the great work this Design Team has done and find some inspiration.

My inspiration came from all sorts of ideas on Pinterest.  I have never made one of these neat little sticky note holders but OH MY they are so easy!  and adorable!  I'm always thinking of little random acts of kindness for my kids teachers.  I know they all enjoy non homemade gifts for end of year and Christmas but I do make little crafty things for just every day reasons!

Die Cuttin Divas Challenge

Welcome back to another Tuesday Die Cuttin Divas Challenge!  This week is a COLOR theme!  We want to see yellow, orange, grey and purple in your projects....and remember, you MUST use a die cut!  Here is what I created!
I originally colored this flower at the Great Lakes Mega Meet back in May.  I took a beginner Copic class and the instructor had these flowers stamped and cut out (so I'm not sure what brand it is) for us to practice on.  I thought it went perfect with this weeks challenge!  Be sure to link up your projects HERE!!

Baby Card

I'm back today with another fun card!  Another Tuesday means another challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas!  This week we want to see flight!  An airplane, glider or helicopter on your projects!  Just be sure to include a die cut and link up HERE!  Here is what I came up with!

I just bought this paper pack this weekend from the craft store!  I LOVE it!  I'm really loving these little stacks instead of the big 12x12 stacks I've been buying.  It's so much easier to coordinate papers and colors!

I'd also like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Bitten by the Bug 2: Fly Away!

K&Company paper stack
My Craft Spot - Inside and Out Set #2
Everyday Paper Dolls and Create a Critter Cartridges
Baker's Twine
Celebrate It! ribbon
OTC buttons
Rubber Stampede black ink

Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #77

Good Tuesday morning!  Today at Die Cuttin Divas we have a sketch for you!  Along with the sketch we are celebrating National Kid Day so we ask that you add a child theme to your project!!  Feel free to interpret the sketch any way you want as long as you use a die cut somewhere on your project!  and link it up HERE!

I just love making birthday cards and love love using these digital images!  This card came together pretty quickly and I even got to color while watching the Olympics!  I printed off a bunch of different images and my kids sat with me and colored some too!!  Double bonus!!

I'm also entering my card in the Catch the Bug August Anything goes Challenge!
