Of course, in New Zealand, it's not back to school at all. For us, it's business as usual, with only a term and half until exams. School is work as I'm the library manager in a secondary school, so naturally books and school are closely related for me! Hence the card...
One of my first on-line purchases was the Bibliophile stamps and co-ordinating dies from Papertrey Ink because it's hard for me to go past a book stamp! I got it sometime in 2015. The best bit of the set is really the reading quotations because the dies to make the book spines are large, meaning there's not that many different ways to lay them out on a card front. However, you can play around with colour and there are many different ways to combine the various reading quotes from authors as well as lots of different bits to create interesting spine designs.
The Dictionary background stamp from Stampin' Up is one of my favourites. It first appeared in the 2013-14 Annual Catalogue, although I wasn't a stamper back then.
We'd love to see what you do with this theme: maybe something bookish, maybe something mathematical, maybe something science-y, or perhaps a good luck to a student for a new year - or even something for a beginning teacher as one of the Design Team members has done.
There's only a couple of other things to remember if you decide to play along with us.
1. Use at least one stamp that's older than a year.
2. Tell us how old that stamp is (approximately).
3. Don't link up to more than a total of ten challenges.
You have until 8 September to link up with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
