Lizzie Anne Designs Sneak Peek Day 1: School Days

You know what today is, right? I have been so excited for today to hurry up and get here. Its Day 1 of Lizzie Anne Designs sneak peeks.

supplies used:
Lizzie Anne Designs School Days
other: watercolors, watercolor paper, pop dots

I just love this set! When I first saw this set, my head was swimming with teacher gift ideas and first day of school layouts. But after playing around with this set for a bit I realized how versatile it really is. I chose to use the pencil stamp for todays card, but instead of creating a No 2 pencil it became art pencils. I simply stamped out lots of pencils on watercolor paper and then went to town coloring them in with fun bright colors. I printed out a quote on the bottom of my card base and adhered the pencils to the card with pop dots.



Be sure to stop by the Lizzie Anne Designs Blog to see a sneak peek at two other great sets and a single that Lizzie Anne Designs has coming out this winter. Make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win some LAD stamps. And then check out what the rest of the LAD DT has been busy working on.
