Back to School Inspiration with Susie!

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today with a little back to school project featuring vellum quotes from Quick Quotes!

I like to send in a gift card at the start of the year as a teacher's gift and I wanted to create a fun way to present it.

Quick Quotes has a wide selection of vellum quotes on just about any subject so I pulled a few of my favorites on the topic of children/childhood and started to play! I adhered this great striped paper from the Earth Wind and Fire collection to mat board and die cut a Recipe Card Box.  I dressed up the outside of the box with 3D stickers and attached a velcro button to hold it closed.

Next I die cut coordinating paper and vellum quotes and inked the edges with Seafoam PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I die cut scraps to make customized embellishments...

...and then had fun decorating the quote cards!
Even teachers need a little inspiration now and then!  I hope the quotes (and the gift card) help start the year off with a smile!
