Karen Foster Design: School

Today is the first day of school in our town,  so I though today would be perfect to share Karen Foster Design's new school collection mixed with other school products they currently carry. Click on any photo to get a closer look!

I seriously can't stand how cute Matthew looks in this photo! It was taken on his first day of 4-year-old preschool. He was such a cool dude, even that young! I LOVED mixing together brand-new school KFD products with olders ones for this layout.

There are papers for preschool-5th grade this year with matching stickers. I used the notebook paper and punched a "torn" border on the left side to give it a more traditional look. The Stacked Statement makes a perfect title! I simply trimmed it in half so I could make the title fit the space that was available on my layout. I used stickers in several places and even added Rub-bits to look like doodling in the corners of the notebook paper.

Karen Foster Design: Zoo

I'm back today with another new scrapbook collection by Karen Foster Design. Today, it's a zoo around here! Be sure to click on any photo for a closer look!

I used several papers in this collection as well as the Zoo Stacked Statement. I just love all the texture they have! I also strung together several colors of Scrappers Spools with Crazy Coils to create a banner of sorts. The baby chimp was dangling from a net, so I carried the idea along in my scrapping products.

Next up is a thank you card with a zoo theme. I created a bit of a shadow box feel by die cutting a label-shaped hole and mounting the entire panel up on foam adhesive.

The Stacked Sticker and Scrappers Spools have a special place right in the center to shine!
 For the inside of the card I used more paper, a few stickers, and a sentiment stamp.

 My final zoo project is a decorated gift bag. The giraffe sticker with his long neck needed a special place to hang out, so I created a die cut panel of cardstock as his home. Layered papers, a sticker title, and Scrappers Spools tied to the bag handle make this a unique gift wrapping. 

Be sure to check out Karen Foster Design for all their zoo products and other new summer CHA releases!
