School Days Congrats Owl for the Stampin' Royalty

I'm so honored to have been asked to be a guest designer this week for the Stampin' Royalty! I love those girls ~ they are all just so sweet! So thankful we have Stampin' Up! in common! I've played along with many of their fun challenges and have a Top Pick several times, which just makes my day! This week they have a theme challenge: School Days. I hope you'll be able to join us and enter their challenge! Here's what I came up with:

Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • The 'Congrats' sentiment is from the Fundamental Phrases Stamp Set on page 157 (114968). This set comes with {24} adorable sentiments perfect for every occasion! I stamped the 'Congrats' in Old Olive ink on Whisper White Card Stock.
  • I love owls! They are all the rave right now in the paper crafting world and the Stampin' Up! It's the Thought Level 1 Hostess Set on page 4 of the Summer Mini Catalog is so cute! The sentiment I thought was perfect for back to school themed projects since his little glasses remind me of a professor and the sentiment '...a little wiser' are perfect for back to school and learning!
  • I chose to use the Stampin' Up! colors Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, and Night of Navy. Perfect primary school colors! If you haven't already purchased the RetroFit Color Kits to update your Stampin' Up! color collection, you can CLICK HERE to download the PDF and view the different kits for Markers, Ink Pads, and Card Stock! These are a great way to purchase just the NEW colors your need!
  • To add to the School Days theme, I stapled the 'Congrats' sentiment! I rarely staple on my projects - so I really hoped it would be in the right place the first time! Measure twice, staple once!!! To place an Order for Stampin' Up! On-Line 24/7, CLICK HERE!
