Brandilynn Project :)

I am soooo sorry blogger was not letting me into the account this morning so thats why this post is really late

Wonderful layout Aug 27th

I'm Carolyn from Regina and welcome to Canadian Paper Trail! I'm happy to be a part of this group of creative people from all over Canada & I hope you find some inspiration here.

We've just done our back to school shopping and I'm wondering what grade 6 is going to be like for my girl. This project was perfect for getting these photos done - the first and last days of grade 5.

What a bittersweet time of year - sad to see her gone all day again, but glad for a little space for myself, sad to see my little girl growing up, but excited to see who she's becoming.My blog is not all scrapbooking, but you are welcome to drop by and stay a while!

Day #8 Heathers lunch box project

Sorry this is Jess up all night with a tooth ache so i was a bit late posting this morning your going to love Heathers project

Hi! My name is Heather and I have been officially paper crafting for about 8 years now, both scrapbooking and card making. I work part time at a local craft store so that definitely helps to feed my addiction.... :) !

For my Back-to-School project I chose to do these cool notecard holders. Wouldn't it be so cute if you placed them in your child's lunchbox and they found a different note from you every few days. Details for creating these are on my blog

here is my blog

Day # 7 Back to school card

Hi there, my name is Tanis, I am a Mom of 2 from Oshawa, Ontario. With the new school year fast approaching, I thought a Back 2 School card would be a lot of fun to try. This is my very first “school” themed card, and it got the stamp of approval from my 4yr old daughter that is starting Jr Kindergarten this fall. When I was a kid I always loved recess, it was a nice break in the day where you could have fun and make new friends. Thank you very much for looking and have a great day!

hope on over to her blog

Day#6 Ami's Digital Card

Hey All!

Ami here to share my latest card with you. My daughter is still too young for school, but that doesn't mean I don't suffer from back to school fever. As a child growing up, I looked forward to going back to class and every since graduating I still get that twinge to buy scribblers, crayons and lined paper. This year, one of my near and dear friend is heading back to class- this time as a teacher. To help welcome her to her new role, I've created this card for her.

When I am creating cards (because I'm still a newbie), I often use templates. I picked up this template from Scrappycath Designs in a challenge at Scrapmatters. Cathy has created a great psd file that's fabulous for helping with placement and sizing of elements. The kit I've used is also a digital item; it's a kit called School Days by WM[squared] Designs. I pefer to use digital items as I know I will never run out of my favorite paper.
I just know my fave teacher will appreciate opening this card on the first day of school.
To all teachers out there- Thanks for everything you teach us.
