JAI #104: Just Add Back To School


I'm still pinching myself that I am on the JAI Design Team!  The first of the cardmaking challenges that I'm creating for has a back to school theme.  I'm pretty sure all school aged children are back at school by now - mine have been back for 2 weeks!  The first thing I thought of when I saw the theme of this challenge was the parents.  I recently heard the term "Cheers and Tears", that refers to parents either celebrating or crying over their children starting school.  Which camp did you fall into?

I thought this would be a great gift idea for anyone with a child starting school.  I made a wine bottle tag with a little box for an extra surprise at the bottom.

There's plenty of room on the tag to write a message to the recipient.  And in the box there's some Hershey's Kisses Chocolates.

Why don't you pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog and see what the other Design Team members have come up with for this week's challenge?  I'm sure you'll find something to inspire you.

Stamps: Fresh Vintage (SAB), Topsy-Turvey Celebration
Ink: Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade
DSP/Cardstock: Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB), Poppy Parade, Whisper White
Other: 1 3/4", 1 1/4" and 1" Circle Punches, Basic Jewel Rhinestones

Bye for now,



  1. Great lateral thinking on this challenge, Tina! Love your project.

  2. What a great gift that would make. Love it.

  3. Like the way you think Tina, drown your sorrows or kick up your heels either way this is a great idea!
    Great first DT project!

  4. Very cute idea Tina!
    I love the way you've used the sab stamp and matching dsp on it. It would be a good way to celebrate or drown your sorrows.

  5. This is such a great idea Tina. I must admit I was in the cheers camp this year but when my second one starts school it might be tears! But I've still got a couple of years to go till we get to that - lol!
