Club Scrap Transformations Blog Hop

Welcome to the Transformations Blog Hop!

 
 
If you arrived here from Janet's Blog you are in the right place. If you have gotten lost you can return to the Club Scrap Blog and start from the beginning.

September brings the start of a new school year here in Upstate New York. My oldest son started his Senior year of High School this year. He has always had difficulty with the school environment due to having Asperger's. He easily gets overstimulated by the environment and needs lots of encouragement to make it through the school day. I decided to make him some daily inspiration cards for school this year. Just a daily pick me up with a positive message. The Club Scrap Transformations Kit was absolutely perfect for this project.

 
I started by selecting paper from my HPOP (Half Pound of Paper). Then I just had fun. I used the Unmounted Stamp sets to create backgrounds and add sentiments.
I also used the cutaparts from my Greetings to Go to add sayings to some of the cards.
 


For this card I created the background by using the leaf stamp from the Borders and Background Unmounted Rubber. I stamped them in purple and then used some red watercolor paint. I stamped the shell stamp and heated embossed it in black.



 
I send a new card to school each day!

Thanks so much for hopping by today!

It is a challenge to keep children motivated without being a nag. What a sweet and wonderful way to let them know you are there. Something they will cherish. It is the small things that matter.
