Stampin Up September stamp club projects

It's Back to Spool  time! receive a FREE spool of 2012-2014 IN COLOR ribbon for every $40 you spend!

With back to spool  in mind, create a perfect little "thinking of you" card to stick inside your niece/nephew, grand kids, or kiddos' lunch bag as they go back to school. 

The Moving Forward stamp set is one of my favorite! We used this stamp set to create the card below.

I got the idea of using different lengths of paper and ribbon from pg 138 of the SU Catalog.

Stamping on the cotton ribbon was a breeze to do and the best part is, you can stamp on it with whatever your little heart desires!

The kids would get a kick out of seeing that cute lil frog jumping out of the basket in the back of that bike.... although, it might give them ideas.....hmmmmm =o)

I'm loving how there are different sizes of circles on the essentials paper piercing pack to give the border of the circle some texture and an extra little touch.

As I had mentioned in the beginning, place this hand-made card in your kids' lunch bag that you also prepared for them.

Have you tried the new core'dinations card stock?!!! it's the best thing ever! a perfect combination of the cardstock, the new woodgrain embossing folder and the new sanding block makes the banner look like a real piece of wood! don't you just love it?!!! I know I DO!

A quick few letters stamped with versamark personalizes your  niece/nephew, grand kids, or kiddos' lunch bag and makes him/her feel special.

The famous owl punch is what I used to put together these two cuties! I also doubled up on the branches using the bird punch and mirrored one branch to the other.
