School Shopping

Happy Saturday, everyone! I wanted to show you the fun I'm having with the August MFT Kit. You may know that I'm hosting the new monthly MFT Kit Challenge, where you can get creative with the kits and show us your best stuff! This month's challenge winner will be announced during the September MFT Release Party on September 2 -- and the winner gets September's kit FREE! :)

I saw this Provo Craft paper sitting on my counter, so I thought I'd created a School Shopping tote. I can see it filled with gift cards for someone going off to college, or maybe something for a teacher, too! I just love the look of black and white together! The die cut tote, Gifty Girl stamps, black dotted ribbon, silver brads, and MFT Perfect Paper Panels are all part of the kit.

Can I just tell you how CUTE the baby brads are?? Silver and red brads come with the kit. I used them on the sentiment and on the shopping bags. I paper pieced the dress with some paper from my stash, and I colored with Copics.

I will easily use up the other five totes in the kit -- they're the perfect size for tucking in a small gift or gift cards. What a great way to give gifts to friends, sisters, mothers, nieces... you get the idea. ;)

We're off to Anna's soccer game in a little while. The weather today is going to be cool -- in the low 70's -- I think fall is on the way! :)

Thanks so much for visiting today -- have a great day!
