Hi everyone! Valerie here today with the October Challenge. We want to see you Chalk It Up.
This month, we invite you to share with us your chalkboard inspired decor, layouts, cards, etc…
Studio is a great pick for this challenge when choosing supplies, but
you'll also find quite a few chalkboard inspired items in the Cut and
Paste Collection. When I think of chalk and chalkboards,
I think of school. How convenient that my son just started preschool
this year. I printed off a couple photos from his first day and got to
work creating this layout.
Collection:"Beautiful Ride" paper, sticker labels, chipboard elements,
and twine; Cut & Paste Collection:Flair "Small" decorative brads,
Flair "Today" tiny word stickers, Flair "Wow" chipboard
stickers, Flair "Snapshots" buttons, Presh "Noted" enamel dots, Presh
"Good Times" buttons, and Adorbs "Special" tiny word stickers;Lime
Twist:Out of the Blue "Playful" alphabet;Misc:American Crafts
I picked a patterned
paper from Chalk Studio for my background, and used an entire sheet of
Chalk Studio sticker labels. I cut a couple of them in half to stretch
them even further. Then, I simply added a few
embellishments on top.
I also took a little
time to spruce up a bare vintage metal watering can. This watering can
always sits on a tray in our entryway. Over the years it has held
sunscreen and bug spray, but this summer it was a
great place to store our sidewalk chalk.
