Back to School Blog Hop!

Welcome to the SVG Attic-3 Girl JAM Back to School blog hop!  We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and 3 Girl JAM. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists!

You should be arriving from Georgiana's blog. If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

When I thought about a Back to School project, I was a bit stumped.  I don't have children, so therefore, no grandchildren.  I do, however, have teachers who are friends.  I decided to create something for one of my good friends who is an elementary school teacher.

This cutting file from SVG Attic is part of the Wedding Wishes Kit.  It is the Love Stories Gift Card Box.  3 Girl JAM products used are Jute Ribbon and String Bundle and Goblin Green from the Spooky Bundle.

The image is a digi stamp from Lacy Sunshine, called Molly.  I colored her with Copic markers and used a Spellbinders die to cut her out.  Papers and embellishments are from Close To My Heart.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Now how about some blog hop prizes??
