Our Star Student

It's the end of the semester at school for Christopher and he did wonderfully! Christopher has always had great academic scores, but struggles with using his time wisely and working with others due to his autism. This year, however, in the third grade, he's really maturing and working hard and made perfect marks in every category. His dad and I are so proud that I had to make a page!


This is a hybrid page using colorful and glittery digital papers from a kit called Glitterati - All Star by Betsy Tuma of Two Peas in a Bucket. I love the look of glitter, but it makes a big mess! This digital version is easy on the clean-up and so much quicker too!

This next project I'd like to share is a card that can be used for Valentine's Day or any day. I like the no reason to send a card kind of days! When it's least expected!


Do you like the shape of the card? It's made with my Silhouette! I remember when I first got my Silhouette, I made a die cut here and there, but after getting an unlimited die cut subscription and having had some practice under my belt, I use it for almost every project! I should sell these! ;)

Supplies:

Star Student Page
Card Stock:  Bazzill Basics
Die Cutter:  Silhouette
Thread:  Coats

Lovey Dovey Card
Card Stock:  Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper:  Imaginisce
Dimensional Sticker:  Imaginisce
Decorative Scissors:  Fiskars
Ribbon:  May Arts - Buy

I hope you've enjoyed my post today! And I hope everyone has a great weekend and can squeeze in some crafting time!
