Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock + A GIVEAWAY

Happy (or should I say "hoppy"?) Wednesday everyone!
Welcome to Artsy Albums and your next stop on Lori Whitlock's September Blog Hop!  If you're starting here, be sure to head over to Lori's site to start from the beginning!  You won't want to miss the inspiration and fun projects at each stop!

Be sure to come back ... I have a GIVEAWAY that you won't want to miss :)

For my project, I'm sharing my take on two of Lori's adorable designs -- the Apple Favor Bag and the A2 Dot Card.  I thought this would make such a cute gift set for a teacher or your child's bus driver!

For the A2 Dot Card, I cut the base out of red card stock, and the top layer out of white.  The holes match up perfectly, so it was very easy to adhere the top layer to the front of the card.
For the Chalkboard element, I used Lori's Back To School Board, but changed it up a bit since this needs to be a thank you card.  The file comes with two layers so I cut the larger, bottom layer from black card stock.  For the top "thank you" layer, I made a Print and Cut and the font I used ('chalkdust') was downloaded from the internet.  The cute apple comes with this file also, but I did enlarge it to a size that I thought looked cute on the card.
For the Apple Favor Bag, I decided to replace the apple with Lori's cute little school bus.  I re-sized it to fit on the bag's belly band, and used gems for the lights -- SO cute!!

I had so much fun with all of Lori's designs this week that I'd like to give one lucky visitor a chance to win a $10 download card to Silhouette!

  17. Loved the bus. I really appreciate my kids bus driver. She takes her time and makes sure they are all safe. Even when a little one falls asleep on the bus a time or two.

    Great job@

    1. Asleep? Awww -- hard day at school :) When I finished this project, I thought about bus drivers and how they probably don't get little treats very often. The favor bag is the perfect little size to say thank you! Thanks for stopping by Lisa!!
