Friday Mashup Teachers and Stitching

Happy Friday to everyone! Its beautiful here in southcentral Alaska, and I hope its beautiful where you are too! My thoughts have been with those on the east coast of the US dealing with flooding, and with those in Texas affected by all the horrible fires. Stay safe!

This weeks Friday Mashup challenge is brought to us by Heidi and once again the challenge truly was a challenge for me! Heidi wants us to :

So, here's the "Mashup!" challenge:

1. Create a project with "Stitching or Faux Stitching".
2. Or Create a project for "Back To School or a Teacher Gift".
3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a "Back To School Project with Stitching"!

I dont like to sew, so I went with the faux stitching. Its much easier for me to make some holes and use a white gel pen to connect everything :) I was a bit stumped with the back to school/teacher part. I have 3 oldest son is a senior this yr, my daughter is a junior and my youngest son is in 7th grade. I dont think I have ever made a specific "teacher card" for any of their teachers over the yrs! I've done thank you cards and different holiday cards but thats about it!

I went ahead and used some colors that come to mind for back to school, at least for and red. I used whisper white and the spiral punch to make notebook paper and my Cricut was used for the apple. I liked the ribbon because it matched my Real Red cardstock but also had some stitching on it to go along with the challenge!

Now head over to The Friday Mashup site to check out all the great projects from the rest of the design team and play along with us!
