Back to School ATCs

Looking for my SoSS K is for Kraft post?? Please click HERE

Joel and I spent some time in the craft room this afternoon. I wanted to make some Back to School ATCs for a swap I am in and for the most recent WICKED WEDNESDAY ATC CHALLENGE

I have a super cute September Sock Monkey digi from BUGABOO STAMPS so we decided to use that for our ATCs. We also thought it would be fun to make the ATCs look like chalkboards. We started with black cardstock and rubbed chalk all over it, then used a dry paper towel to remove the excess chalk.

I used Tim Holtz distress markers to colour my ATC, added ruler washi tape to the side and used the Picket Fence distress marker to write "Back 2 School" in the corner.



While he is not AT ALL excited about going back to school, Joel liked the idea of making a Back to school ATC...he used SU markers to colour his ATC and got a little more creative with the washi tape than I did. He also thought the sock monkey would enjoy playing basketball on the school yard, so he drew a basketball for him to play with.


Not bad for his very first attempt at an ATC...and I am pretty sure his colouring skillz are better than mine!!! LOL

We'd like to enter our ATC's into Wicked Wednesday #120 - Back to School

SoSS #15 - K is for Kraft


We always knew that Edna was a krafty old bird, this week she and the snarky sisters would very much like you to join in and get yer kraft on!!

I love the vintage look / feel that kraft cardstock brings to a project.

In my efforts to be well ahead of the game for Christmas cards, I made another Christmas card. This has the potential for snark on the inside dontchya think?? 

This was pretty quick and easy to make so it might make the cut for our annual United Way Christmas card campaign at work...we'll see what else I come up with between now and then.


Shite I used to make this card:
  • Kraft cardstock (Recollections)
  • Black and red cardstock (Recollections)
  • Santa's list stamp set (SU)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Ink blender tool (Ranger)
  • Fishtail Banner die se (YNS)
  • Design paper (SU)
Be sure to visit the SOSS BLOG for all the details on this challenge and show my teammies some crafty love while you are there.

Want to play along? You know you do! You have until 11:55 pm (EDT) on Friday September 5 to upload your kraft project to the SOSS BLOG.
