I used this beautiful October Afternoon Paper, brown Bazzill cs, green Bazzill cs, and ValuePack cards from Michael's. I had 10 white ValuePack cards left and 2 cream. Lucky for me the OA dp matched both colors so I could eke out 12 notecards. I'll buy more this weekend with Michael's 50% coupons for Labor Day weekend. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip.
I had enough scrap to make two vertical cards (see far right acrylic box), and I used my "Thinking of You" stamp.
I can't believe my girls will start 1st grade on Tuesday! That means 2.5 more hours for me each day. So no more excuses why I don't have time for the gym. I have not exercised since the end of school (mid-June). I also hope that means more time to make cards and gifts and work on scrapbooking again :) The girls have different 1st grade teachers and a Reading/Language Arts teacher, but they should be together for "Specials" (PE, music, art, and Spanish).
I used up all my ValuePack cards, and I just have ~2"x2" square of dp. Yep, I saved it! I really like the floral pattern on the reverse side of the apple pattern. I haven't designed a card around that scrap yet, my I'm sure my subconscious is working on it :)
