Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon August Blog Hop


School Days


   Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon August Blog Hop! We are creating Smarty Pants themed projects (nerds, school, etc.) using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. If you came from my darling friend, Katy's blog, then you are on the right track. 

   The blog candy for this hop is a $15 GC to the PPPR store. For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and leave a comment on each blog. For extra chances, you can also "LIKE" Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on Facebook  and/or sign up for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Newsletter. A random winner will be chosen for the prize on Tuesday, August, 2015. 

   I would totally sign up for the newsletter if you've not done so yet, there's a free file each Friday! Super worth it! 

   You can pick up the Blog Hop freebie on Saturday and Sunday of the hop, only...then it will be available for sale in the store.

   Okay folks...are you ready? Cause I was almost giddy all week waiting to share this layout! School themed projects are a serious favorite of mine and Lisa's incredible files make every project something extra special! My kids wanted to play with the cuts that I have put together. The large notebook, blackboard and clipboard are so cool! 



   To make some of these pop, I did cut multiples layers on some of the cuts. For example the glasses and red of the apple. Both of which got a layer of glossy accents as well. The only thing I used foam tape (or craft foam) on was under the clipboard and the kids photo since I wanted to make sure that was a focus on the page. 


   Before I head off we also have our PPPR Smarty Pants Challenge. The projects can be anything that are school or nerdy themed and feature Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. You can more find on those challenges here.  One random participant will win $20 to PPPR! We can't wait to see what you share with us! 

 Next stop is to Melissa! Thanks for visiting! 

Here is our line-up

   Hope you all have a great weekend! We are currently at the beach for a long weekend camping!

This is a fabulous layout! I love how you layered the clipboard on the chalkboard with the notebook behind and it is so fun how you've used the clipboard as a photo frame. The bit of white on the chalkboard is perfect as is white title! Thanks so much for always inspiring me for how to use these awesome files!
