Back to School Altered Desk Set: Cuttlebug Challenge #46 and Cosmo Cricket










I have been so busy lately and haven't had any time at all to sit and enjoy some card making...scrapping...or anything related to papercrafting...

I did have time, tho, to work on our Cuttlebug Design team project for this week for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog's be Inspired #46: Altered School Items

We had the wonderful opportunity to work on this project using fantastic Cosmo Cricket products.... as well as the always fantastic Core'dinations Color Core Card Stock

This desk set includes a mail holder basket, notebook, magnetic To-Do List/note pad and pencil set, an index card organizer case, personal address book and pencil.pen holder....all created with Cosmo's "Boyfriend" papercrafting kit.

All of the patterns and colors in this kit were beautiful and wonderful...and when I saw the pencil patterned paper..I just knew it would be ideal for this "school" themed challenge.

I used black card stock as the primary base for each piece to mimic a chalkboard....and built each project...paper layers and embellishments on the chalkboard base.

So now that you've seen my desk set...come on over the the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog to see what my Design teammates have come up with for this fun challenge!
