Back 2 Class

Another layout using the September kit from Crazy Daisy Kits. I'm really loving the versatility of this kit - it works well for boy, girl, and grown-up pages.

I used glimmer mist in "Tattered Leather" to darken and grunge up the twill ribbon. I wanted the back to school look, but in a more grown-up version. I think this did the trick! I then folded and stapled the ribbon to my page.

I had these Tim Holtz gears and washers in my stash, and with the screw head brads, they were a perfect accent, since my husband is going to technical school.

The Jenni Bowlin papers reminded me of school note book papers, so I used a note book punch on the edge.

I love that these 7 gypsies ephemera tags are 2 sided, and really thick. You can use one side just for the design, or the flip side as a journaling spot. And the thickness allows for distressing without tearing it apart.

Supplies (from kit):
PP - 7 gypsies, Jenni Bowlin
gaffer tape, chipboard letters, stickers, ephemera tags - 7 gypsies
twill ribbon - Foofala
office supply tag

Other supplies:
glimmer mist - Tattered Angels
metal gears and washers - Tim Holtz
brads - Karen Foster, Imaginisce
paper clips - KI Memories
ink - Ranger
marker - Staedtler Triplus Fineliner
other - staples
