Exploring Cricut-Back to School

Happy Monday and welcome to a new challenge at Exploring Cricut. I'm guessing that all the kiddies are back in school by now. Our grands started back last Monday. To celebrate the beginning of a new school year, Diane challenged us to make a card, layout or papercraft with a school theme in primary colors. Now, I have to admit that I was blank about primary colors. I looked at hubby and asked him. We decided they were yellow, red and blue. So to make sure, I googled it. Pretty bad when you are out of school so long that you start to forget the easy stuff like that!! LOL I decided I wanted something different for this card. I turned on my Gypsy Girl and started punching in different school related things to see what the cartridges had on them. I finally decided to go with the Simply Charmed cart. It has several different things. I chose the paper and pencil from page 53 and the scissors and glue from page 54. I didn't use the layers that had the face cutouts because I wanted to stamp my own. My paper is cut at 3.50 inches and the other pieces at 2.25 inches. I popped the glue, scissors and pencil up on one thickness of foam tape. The happy face and sentiment on the paper are from the School Days stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. These are the best stamps!!! The faces are from the Simple Simons Face Assortment from Peachy Keen Stamps. Pop over to Exploring Cricut and check out what my DT Sisters and Brother have created to inspire you. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Then head to your crafty space and make a Back To School project using Primary Colors and link it up so we can come by and admire it. Just remember, it has to be a new project. No back links please!! You have until 9pm, EST on Saturday September 1st to link.  Hope y'all like my card!!! :)
It was super hard to get a good photo of the card front. Ended up taking it at an angle.
