Meljen's Challenge #126 Back to School

Hi fellow crafters, am back with another book card for a Back to School Challenge, cos I am sooo addicted to making these easy little paper projects!

This is my first Challenge entry with Meljen's and am pleased to share this happy Penpal Mouse with you, which you can find HERE.

So I decided to make a book card with brown, fawn and gold coloured card stock and printed papers from Bearly Mine CD Designer Extreme Volume 2.
There are over 600 papers on this CD with all different themes - clean, vintage, dots, floral, stripes, masculine , etc etc - the list goes on and on..............
and you can get it here:

some close up photos -
 I drew the red line on the printed papers with a ballpoint pen, 
the mouse from Meljens Designs, link above, was coloured with promarkers, 
the blackboard I made with card stock, die cut numbers, embossing folder, corner punch and garden twine and a brad..

The apple is a cuttlekids die, and the stars are punched out with an EK success corner punch..

and the inside..

The rear view which shows the papers from the CD - I didn't distress these at all, this is how they print out..

why don't you pop along and join in the challenge this week over at Meljen's Challenges?


  1. Wow Jess, this is just so fantastic. I was hoping to see some more images from the DT post on Meljen's so was very happy to see you included them here! Really loving those papers, if only I had a color printer I would really contemplate that cd. Well, Cheers and so happy to be working with you at Meljen's Designs. :D

  2. So cute Jess. Love the book cards. Made one at wkend for my mother-in-laws friend but wasn't quite happy with the inside and now I see you distressed your one so must try that next time. Donna
