Geek is Chic Release Party - Day 4

School's Out!!!
Well almost, as we come to the last day of our Geek is Chic Release Party!
We've had a wonderful time showing you all the fun projects you can whip up using our latest collection and from all the terrific comments you have left us, it seems as though everyone has enjoyed the week of inspiration.
A+ all round!

However, before the final bell rings, we need to wrap up with our last day of creations, so grab a glass of milk and an apple and sit back to enjoy one final round of projects from our design team!


Isn't this just the yummiest card from Courtney!

Courtney has created this clever card and in case you are wondering how she made the fabulous books... she used the Cricut Cartridge 'Wrap It Up'.


Rhonda has used the alternate sides to the Geek is Chic school theme papers and created this adorable layout about the love of her boys and their dad... too sweet!

Another fun layout from Rhonda and just look at those little brad daddies covered in the ruler paper... too cute!




This little man manages to put a smile on his mum's face at just the right time... such a gorgeous photo that just had to be scrapped!



Another little book worm... it's so nice to be able to scrap the little moments in a child's life... like the love of books and learning to read at five.




Sophia has made this gorgeous card and envelope set with the sweetest butterflies punched from the Geek is Chic ruler paper... we love it!

How is this for a fun way to jazz up a plain old pencil tin... add layers and layers of different paper strips!


Liz Qualman

Liz has created this fabulous apple mini album to document school days for her daughter.

Such a studious little gal with such a cute smile!




A school notebook doesn't have to be plain and boring, Liz has totally revamped this little book to make it something worth showing! We love it!



Melinda's has given herself a blister by sharpening an entire row of pencils to create a fun element to this layout of her son's year at kinder.

And how about an apple for the teacher... Melinda has filled a clear container with Jaffas and dressed it up to look like an apple. She has even used her Cricut to cut out the leaves and stem. Yummy!

OneScrapHappyMomma said...

Usually I only use school paper for back to school layouts, but I have seen so many other uses. That bookworm card, for example, would make a great gift card holder for a Barnes & Noble gift card!
