Color Dare #358 ~Back to School Inspirational Photo

Happy Friday!! Have your kids gone back to school?! Mine started back Aug 14th and this momma has been spending lots of time in my craft room!  This week for Color Dare #358 we have a great Inspiration Photo – Back to School. Pick colors that you see in the photo and BLACK , WHITE and NEUTRALS are free!

Since I have a school age kiddo, I took this opportunity to create a scrapbook layout. I designed this page for my son’s second year of Pre-School which was a few years ago.

I used a couple of different paper packs- Into the Wild, Something Fierce, and Prickly Pear. I also used several of our cardstocks, Black, Charcoal, Clover, Canary, Bluebird, Pebble, Candy Apple, and White Daisy. I used several Cricut cuts for the title, crayon border, stars, and ruler. I also used two Close to My Heart stamp sets – Making the Grade and School Kids (which is retired).

The lines are from the Making the Grade stamp set and stamped in White Pigment Ink on Black cardstock. I used my new Shammy to clean my stamps. The ruler and the crayon border are both cut using my Cricut. The apple is also from the Making the Grade and then I used Liquid Glass to make it shinny.

Speaking or shammies…. Here is little preview of our new shammies! By the way I LOVE these things!!! It is a total must have!!

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #358 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Your layout yells out a school photo for sure…love those cricut cuts, especially the crayons. And just got my shammy yesterday, anxious to try it out.

  2. Your page is so sweet. I love your stamped white pigment background and thanks so much for the shammy demo. I haven’t got myself a shammy yet but I most definitely will!! I love your shiny apples too – that liquid glass was a great addition.
