My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge #241

The new challenge sketch is up on the Card Challenges blog. I decided it was the perfect sketch to use this adorable school theme set by Birdie Brown for My Favorite Things called Class Act. Super cute and fun images!


I love this sweet little school girl.

The dies are so much fun but I took it to another level by cutting the shapes from shrink film to create custom shaker filler. It's one of my favorite ways to use small die shapes! The shape you cut will shrink to approximately one-third its original size. (Be sure to color your images before you shrink them.) Here you can see the custom shapes I made. 


The inside message. I used the circle cut-out from the shaker window to tie it all together.

But I didn't stop at just shaker filler. I thought the tiny apples were so cute I decided to make them into earrings. Eeek. So cute!!!

And then I had another idea.....backpack charms!!!!! Here you can see the difference in size from the original die cut from paper compared to the shrink charms. The girls will love these. :)
