Back to School with Mary Pat Siehl

Today we have some projects from Designer Mary Pat Siehl for all those back to school ideas!

School is starting for us this month and due to the fact that I am a teacher I am always working on my son’s first day of school.  Since I am not there when he wakes up I always put a little something special on the breakfast table for him.  This year I made a card for his first day of school using the amazing Core cardstock.  I used my silhouette to cut out the apple parts.  For my cardstock I used the Brights collection and the Tim Holtz Adirondak collection.  For my base I used Snowflake.  I cut the apple out twice and glued it together to form the actual card.  After cutting out the apple pieces I embossed them using a variety of embossing folders.  I then lightly sanded them to expose the inner core!  Next, I used a smooth Core Tag and cut it down just a bit and stamped my sentiment and tied on the stem using some yummy twine.  Finally I added some bling to make it looks like some apple seeds.  I think my son is going to love this!

And speaking of school projects. Mary Pat creates these large envelope layouts for all of her kids school years. How cool is that?  It’s a great way to store their report cards, schedules, and all the other things that they get throughout the year that they might want to save and have to look back on one day.
