Happy Weekend, Everyone! I had a lot of fun playing with the Work In Progress September Add-On kit (with a few sprinkles of the Main kit and a few sprinkles from my stash) this week and wanted to share with you the projects I made: a quick layout, a magnet for holding school papers, and a fun mini-book.
This layout is about my son's search for the perfect walking stick on a recent vacation. :D The red patterned paper and loopy letter stickers are from the Main kit.
You know all those papers that start coming home from school with your kids that the teacher wants you to read and sign? As my three children empty their backpacks each day they start throwing them at me and things tend to get lost in the homework chaos. I decided I would make a magnet so that they could pin them up and they wouldn't get misplaced or forgotten. (The Jenni Bowlin letter stickers and Deluxe Designs chipboard arrow are from my stash.) To add thickness to the magnet I mounted the journaling block on the light green cardstock backing from the packaging for the Making Memories letter stickers.
This last project is a mini-book of sorts. I LOVE mini books, but I don't seem to use them as fast as I buy them. LOL! I decided to take an accordian album from my stash and make a record book for my son to motivate him to read 10 chapter books. When he is finished I will take him to buy a special prize. :D (The cork star is from Joann's dollar section. The twill and Jenni Bowlin letter stickers are from my stash and the green Thickers are from a previous WIP kit.)
My son is excited to get started on his reading goals and now my daughter is begging me to make one for her. :D I think I'll use the Main kit for hers! :D
See you again soon!
