Let's head on it to the classroom and see these amazing back to school projects!

I made this card for one of my nieces.  It so reminded me of her, she just turned 13 and this is her first year of high school! I used my Cricut and the Autumn Celebration cart.  You can purchase specific themes of images for less but I am so glad I purchased the entire cart.  I have used it way more than I thought I would.

I just love the girl's tie dye purple hair!  The teen girl also came in a card form with not as much detail, I will hold on to this one for later use.

Finally, I made a more unisex card.  I have used the locker image before but not the card version.  It is pretty small.  I would make this one bigger next time.

 Up next is Ashley!  I am sure she will get in you in the back to school frame of mind!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:


  1. These cards are so on trend! They would be perfect for any cool dude or dudette! I just saw a teen waiting for a school bus with hair color like that. Two really great cards! Thanks for sharing and, as always, it was a pleasure hopping with you.

  2. Both your cards scream teenager, hip & school. I tie dye hair look so awesome & is so (as my kids would say) "Like the kewl thing" now. I really like the locker design, reminds me of my locker in high school.

  3. great designs and color! love them both!

  4. Your cards are so cool! I can really see the attitude in the teenage girl. Maybe my card is her bedroom. :)

  5. Cool cards for those teenagers for back to school. Amazingly cute, but not kitsch. TFS and have fun in the hop. Best luck
