You know… I’m a sucker for anything school themed (perhaps because I’m a teacher – or am I a teacher because I’m a sucker for supplies?!)
Anyways, I love creating back to school projects. Each year I try to tuck a card into a few of my coworkers mailboxes just wishing them good luck with their new classes. Thus, I need some back to school cards.
Today I am sharing my first card. Apples… I love apples for teacher projects so the Apple Stamping stamp set is one of my go tos.
I then, as always search through my stash for items to go along with the apple and teacher theme.
The Learning Year by Year is a perfect match – rulers, tabbed file, sentiments….
To create the card, I first layered on a die cut background and stitched it on. I then decided on the placement of the cluster and started layering.
I added some black washi to bring the feel of a chalkboard, some staples because well… school and of course the paper clip with twine is a final touch.

That’s it for me today. Do you have children starting school?
Mine are at University now and let me tell you a secret… as a stay at home mom… I loved when school started. As a teacher, not so much! LOL
