FM 173 - School Themed Project

For this weeks Friday Mashup I had to think real hard to come up with something. I do not have any children and I couldn't think of a school themed project for my university. So I thought of my friend who is a teacher. Don't you think a welcome banner for all her new students would be fantastic? I hope the banner brings a smile to all her students faces.

1. Create a project with " a School theme". 
2. Create a project with "Your School Colors".

3. or Mash it Up! and create a "School themed project with your school's colors". 

I used the chalk talk framelits to create the holes for the ribbon to weave through.

Stampset: A is for Apple Digital Download, All Time Fav Digital Download, Little Additions Digital Download
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive, Baked Brown Sugar
Bigshot: Chalk Talk Framelits
Tools: Silhouette Cameo
Accessories: Real Red Ribbon (Retired)

FM 172 Color Combo & Wood Element

Sometimes when you start making something it turns out different than you imagined. I started casing a layout of a card I liked and in the end it looks nothing even remotely like the card I was looking at. In fact I didn't even end up making a card. At the last minute I had a brilliant idea to turn the element I was going to add to a card into a cake topper. This helped me to mashup this weeks challenge. 

1. Create a project with " Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black & Whisper White". 
2. Create a project with a "Wood Element".

3. or Mash it Up! and create a " Project using the colors above & a Wood element".
