It’s hard to believe, but it is that time of year again and back to school is right around the corner. Where did the summer go? I feel like I blinked and it’s over! Bags of school supplies have made their way home along with our groceries, and the hunt for the perfect backpack is in full swing. I have to admit that, as a paper crafter, I get a little excited when the aisles in the stores start filling up with school supplies and a few things for me sneak home with my daughter’s supplies!
Awesome Teacher Gift Ideas
A is for apple and A is for awesome teacher gifts. We have rounded up lots of DIY tutorials from a traditional apple themed gift to a customized clipboard. We have plenty of other smart crafting ideas that are sure to put you at the head of the paper crafting class.
Brilliant Book Crafts and Bling
B is for books as well as bling. We have found some fun ways to bling out your books and notebooks this year with these fun DIY tutorials, many of which use paper and supplies that most paper crafters and DIYers already have on hand. These are guaranteed to make homework fun!
Crayon and Craft Storage Solutions
C is for Crayons. Crayons and all of those other school supplies tend to multiply and end up everywhere! We are sharing some DIY storage solutions for homework supplies as well all of that stuff that makes its way home in overflowing backpacks.
Have you started back to school shopping yet?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
