Hi there Peachy friends, how are you? This is Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner with a fun back-to-school project to share with you. My granddaughter will be starting the 3rd grade in a few days and I wanted to make something special for her first day back at school. I decided to go with a notebook to help her keep with all those important things 3rd graders have to keep up with.....
To put this little cutie together, I covered some chipboard (4.5 X 5.5) with some school patterned paper. I cut paper for the inside from plain computer printer paper and bound everything together with some red wire and my Cinch.
I added some pretty twine and those cute little red glasses that I found in the jewelery making section of my local craft store. Next, I pulled out my PK stamps and got inky!
I love the notebook paper stamp from the August 2012 PK Stamp Club - PKSC-08. I stamped it onto white cardstock to use as my background mat. I wanted to personalize Emma's notebook so I pulled out my Lucy's ABC's & 123's set - PK-155 and stamped the letters for Emma's name onto my background mat. I love these letters because they can be colored in to match anything!
Next, I hand cut a bit of grass from some green polka dot paper. Then I colored up this darling little schoolhouse (from the PKSC-08 set) with my Copic markers, cut it out and glued everything together.
Okay, now for the inside.....
I made a little pocket and tag for the inside cover. The front of the pocket is peachied up with another cute image from the PKSC-08 set. I just love that apple with the silly face and glasses! And, because my granddaughter is so smart (spoken like a true Nonna), I added the A+ stamp in the bottom right hand corner of the pocket!
Using a few more images from this stamp set, I randomly stamped a few pages inside the notebook for Emma to doodle on...in her "free time" of course!
And, here's a photo with the tag removed from the pocket....
Isn't that little pencil just too cute?
Well, I think that about wraps up my back-to-school project. Thank you so much for stopping by today - I always enjoy sharing my PK projects with you! And, speaking of sharing, before I let you go I want to share this awesome PK Sale with you.....
Pretty awesome, huh? You don't want to miss this one!
I hope you have a Peachy day!
