Pilin' On the School Supplies

I suppose there's still some summer left, but School Time is coming up again! That's our theme this week at Pile It On: School Time and/or school supplies. We're sponsored by Meljen's Designs, so I used her Little Chalk Board digi stamp:

I printed the image directly onto a yellow library card I got from the Kraft Outlet. I colored it with Copics and glaze pens, and then stamped the "ABC" using the Chalkboard Technique.

The sentiment and "ABC" stamps are from Clear Art Stamps' Story of Me set. The notebook edge was cut from a notebook-patterned DP with a MFT die. I distressed the sentiment piece & library card with Antique Linen ink & my Prima Flowers tool.

The owl brad and star clip are from my stash...thanks Mom!

For the base, I inked a large TH tag with Fired Brick distress ink, and gave it a staple border. I made a "ribbon" with a rubber band.
