A Look inside: School Scrapbook

I'm on a roll

Today I wanted to share a look inside my daughter's School scrapbook. I started this a few weeks ago and I think i'm off to a good start.

If only my rite-aid would get the 1hr photo working again I would be set! Every time I want to print photos it seems to be broken ugh!

For several of my pages, I used The Lettering Delights Toad-ally School Cut it set Along with my Make-The- Cut Software & my Silhouette Cameo

Hey Ya'll

Today I am sharing a project that I made for my daughters Pre-K Teacher for the first day of school! 
Teacher Gift Box

I found an adorable box (3x4 lori whitlock apple favor box). This boxed is described as being 3x4 but in the video you will see how I made the box much bigger than those dimensions in order to fit my cards. My finished box is 7.5 x 5.25

I hope you like my project.

I apologize in advance for the video quality. My camera is dying, it's stuck on the low-light enhancing feature even though it's turned off. Don't worry my new HD camera is coming in the mail any day now :)
