    Now for the details on my project featured in that video.

    Amber goes Back to School!


    What better way to send your children back to school, or welcome a new teacher, than with a fun gift set?!

    This is a 3 D version of a back pack! Complete with all the little details that make it over the top AMAZING 😀

    I made a ” back to school” gift set for each of my 3 children, which you will see as the week progresses, ensuring to tailor each to their personalities. That is the best part about creating your own cards, tags and gifts! You have the creative liberty to tailor your gifts to every person you make it for.

    The 3 different children featured in the NEW! Back to School set were designed with my own children in mind 😀

    Let me share the details of this set!

    What better way to celebrate your favorite student or teacher by creating a paper version of a backpack?! This will truly brighten someones day, and amaze them all at the same time.

    The details, like the front pocket, rounded bottom, flap closure, with hanging top tab are so much like the real thing, but what is really fun is the back!

    Now for the decorative details:

    My color scheme came from my Spring is Here © Pretty Printable Digital Paper. I paired it with the Darling Dots  collection©.

    I used the NEW! Back to School set, combined with the NEW! Round Up set for my hanging tag, which was cut using the Round Up Tag Pretty Pieces Cut File.

    As you can see  the hanging tag on the It’s in the Bag template is different in size than that on the coordinating card.  See the above video for instruction on using Cut Files with Digital Images 😀


    I digitally created/layered the tag, and digitally colored all the details, except “Amber”. I wanted to hand color her! It was SO FUN! I love coloring, but I like knowing I don’t HAVE to. I also love being able to resize my digital images, and cut files for so much versatility. This tag was designed  using a combination of both the  NEW! Back to School set, and the NEW! Round Up set.

    Here are the set details
