Christian Paper Crafts Goes "Back to School"

On the 15th of each month Christian Paper Crafts opens the Design Team Delights private gallery for all Super Sisters and King’s Daughters subscription holders. The gallery is filled each month with projects created by the design team and special guests. These projects are exclusive to the Design Team Delights Gallery, so join us today and don’t miss a thing!

However, each month some of the DT show sneak peeks, called Gracious Glimpses to get you excited for the upcoming Design Team Delights gallery. The theme for August is “Back to School”. We’ve stretched the theme this month to include all kinds of learning, books, and knowledge…there are so many possibilities in these categories!

I have to tell you that I don't put things in the gallery due to my other design team obligations, but I do make a sneak peek each month (well, most months!). So, here is my Gracious Glimpse for August!

I used the NEW Graphic45 An ABC Primer papers and stamps to make a card. This can be a thank you card for a favorite teacher or be used to show your child how much you appreciate his/her hard work!

My two younger kids are still homeschooled (starting 11th and 6th grades on Monday!), and my oldest is a sophomore in college. So, we are still in "school mode" around here 10 months out of the year!

I used some of the fabbie new Graphic45 chipboard items. I love this new paper line and the addition of chipboard!

I hope you enjoy making some schoolish items this fall! Try to remember the teachers who give so much to your kids. And if you have a friend who homeschools, keep mind...maybe no one remembers HER! Send her a note to tell her she's appreciated!

ETA: CropStop Challenge 32 is Back to School, so I am entering this card in that also.
