Back to School Hop!

It is release day for Claudia & Company and boy are the images being released so super cute!  They scream fun in the sun and sand. I can't think of a better way to enjoy summer. All these cuties are available now at Die Cuts R Us!


For my cards, I used an old DCWV school pack. The sentiments are also from the paper pack. I just cut around the words to make them fit in the spaces that I needed. The images are colored with copics. On my Landon card I used some Basic Grey brads. I haven't used brads in quite a while. The big scallop border on the Lucy card was created with a Papertry Ink border die.


Thank you for stopping by today. Now go see what summery goodness the rest of the DT has for you.
