Back To School/Study Spotlights and Winner’s Post


We have 4 artists in the Designer Spotlight for the School/Study Challenge!

#6 Elisa – Sandra says:  This back to school tag that Elisa made is fabulous! Love the way she colored in those books and the gorgeous background is really amazing! The grungy look of the whole tag is stunning! Loved watching the video, although I didn’t understand any word as it’s in Italian, but it’s easy to watch the process on its own.

Barbara says: I agree with Sandra , Elisa’s tag is absolutely amazing! Every detail is perfect and balanced! Colors, design, fab background! Really a great work!

#35 Sunday Stamper Kath says: loved this back to school card, beautiful in it’s simplicity, perfect sentiment and great use of Tim holtz foam stamps

#83 Coutureuse – Maura says: Coutureuse made four awesome ATC’s! I love how she used corrugated cardboard as the base and added such fun elements like the crayons that the children are sitting on, under those cool Moon images, along with pencils and pen nibs. Lots of fun study elements here!

#87 Ink-A-Pink – Cathie says:  Amanda created an awesome journal out of an old pair of jeans. To say it’s absolutely amazing is an understatement. It’s so original and fun and you’ve got to see it. I love how she used several different parts of the jeans to create one cohesive look for the notebook and the elements added are perfect. What an fabulous way to memorialize a much loved pair of jeans. LOVE it!

Maura says: I agree with Cathie!  Amanda’s notebook made using her old jeans is awesome! Who would not want to pull this out of their book bag at school and put it to use! I love how the pocket can be used to hold tools like pen and ruler, so cool!!
