From the Desk of Teach, Cuttlebug Challenge #46 using Card Patterns Sketch.

I have been trying to put this post on for the past two days, how does that happen? So, Dillon will be starting back at school on Thursday and thought I would go ahead and make something for his teacher's desk which follows the Cuttlebug challenge be inspired #46 very nicely, also I bought a couple of Lauren Meaders timeless templates and fully utilised them for this project...

I altered the from the desk of template slightly to accommodate larger A6 cards but went a slightly different route... The back section houses a note card holder the all boxed up template, also altered slightly to fit snugly into the back section. More details lower down this post.

Don't you just ADORE this new line of scrumptious papers from the fabulous Cosmo Cricket? Well I very quickly got my grubby hands on some 6x6 mini pads and set to work cutting into them as soon as they arrived. I then went ahead and covered this desk box in some of the fabulous patterns, the Kraft goes so well. I have coloured the flower and leaves with my copics inspired from the papers and aged ever so slightly with some of Tim's distress inks. The 'Teach' title I have die cut and coloured with distress inks too, they came out so well.

And what desk set wouldn't be complete without wooden ruler and pencils and some little biscuit snack munchies, housed in this adorable satchel bag...

So, I won this X large die when I won a sizzix comp and this was the perfect time to give it some use, I have embellished it with buckles and some ribbon, using some fab Cosmo Cricket papers from a while back.

This is the notecard holder using the all boxed up template, it houses eight handmade note cards and coordinating envelopes. The front clasp is secured using a magnetic snap, fabulous item! I've tried to replicate an old book with worn stitching, mmm with more great paper?

As the title mentions I very loosely used the Cards pattern Sketch #29 but I didn't get it published on my blog quick enough still a lovely sketch... half are hello and the rest say thanks. You know... those little notes home!
