Special Projects from Ginny Hughes using the July 2012 Kit
School’s Out for the Summer! It seems like just yesterday my son was jumping in my car yell-singing this song. But somehow, it’s almost time for school to start again! It makes me want to smile and pull my hair simultaneously. Yikes! Where did all that time go? Ginny Hughes put together a couple fantastic scrapbook projects this month using the Little Black Dress Kit Club July 2012 kit that reminded me that I’m almost out of time…well, summer 2012 time.
She may not have meant to remind me of school, but seeing her fabulous, customized folder mini album and her bookmark simply reminded me that I have to buy school supplies and get the kids finished up on their summer reading lists. Dang it.
To distract us all from the fact that we have much to do to prepare for the new school year, I suggest pulling out the latest Little Black Dress Kit and putting together something fun and special to include with the typical school supplies when the kids head off to school. Now on to see what Ginny put together to inspire all this hoopla!
First, check out Ginny’s It’s My Party kit bookmark:
Awww…I love Dr. Seuss. And I know that no kid wants to lose their “spot” when they’re in the middle of reading. Dr. Seuss is a genius and must have the respect of an official bookmark without dog eared corners. Love the use of the journaling to give the bookmark a little extra character with the “save my spot” in the bottom right corner. Also adore the use of the trim both on the top of the bookmark and as the final touch on the “flower.”
Next, check out what Ginny put together using the Heidi Swapp folder included in the It’s My Party scrapbook kit. She intended it be the beginnings of a fabulous mini album for her daughter. She made the folder for Adeline’s 2nd birthday. The plan is to put in some photos and the cards she gets on her big day and then do some journaling about the day. What a fabulous idea!
Of course, with my mind all stuck on back to school, I have to point out that customizing such a folder would make for a great addition to the kids’ binders. Better than a note in their lunchbox any day. Sometimes they don’t even USE their napkins at school (much to our despair).
Thanks for the inspiration Ginny!
