School's In Session at ISS!

It's the end of the month and you know what that means....it's time for another InStyle Stamps Blog Hop!!! Woo-Hoo!!!!

Grab your Books, Pencils & Copics,
Put on your Backpacks

Because today we are headed
BACK TO SCHOOL!!!


Welcome to the InStyle Stamps August Blog Hop!


Our theme this month: "Back to School"

With summer coming to an end that means school is going to be back in session soon! We have classes, teachers, books, exams, and homework on the brain now! It's hard to believe that summer is almost done! My classes start on Sept. 3rd! I'm sad that vacation is done, but now I am getting into my accounting classes so that makes school a little more tolerable! lol! Speaking of school, we have many new school releases over at InStyle Stamps today so make sure you head over to the store to check them out and place your order!

Like usual, you get to decide which DT member inspires you the most! After you go and view all of the other DT's projects (their links are in my side bar), make sure you head on over to the InStyle Stamps Blog to vote for your favorite project (I hope that my teacher gift set has inspired you and would love to have your vote :) The DT member who gets the most votes will win a prize....AND YOU CAN WIN A PRIZE JUST FOR VOTING!!! All you have to do is place your vote; then leave a comment on the post with the poll to be entered for a PRIZE! You need to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. The contest will remain open until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, August 29th, and winners will be announced on Monday, September 1st! We also have some news that will be posted on the InStyle Stamps Blog along with the winners, so you don't want to miss that post!!!

Now....onto my project:
I got to use the new schoolhouse image and Janice! Aren't they both so much fun?! Of course I colored with my Copics so I am a happy girl! The apple ornament was purchased at HL, and I altered it with Janice. I thought this would make a lovely decoration for a teacher's desk, accompanied by my schoolhouse card, which I used the recessed frame tutorial from SCS to make this fun card! My Scor-Pal was a huge help to make the recessed frame, which I think gives the card that little extra somethin' somethin'! My card showcasing the brand new schoolhouse stamp that will be available for purchase today!
A different view so you can see how the recessed frame looks.
