Back to (Bible) School

Welcome to Scrapping our Stash
I'm back after a couple of very busy months and so glad you stopped by. You should have arrived here from Alison's blog. The complete list is below.

For the kids, it's back to school time.  It is for me as well. After 3 months off, Bible Study Fellowship is ready to begin again and I must prepare my seminars and the materials to publicize them.  

I began with a basic black foam board and using chalk pastels - created my basic chalkboard.  Because there is a new seminar every 2-3 weeks, I need to be able to change it out without recreating it every time... and so came
I created banners with each title and and second one with the date and they will hang over the general information board.

While I got the foam board specifically for this project, everything else was definitely from the stash... and specifically the scrap bin.
I wanted the banner to be made of various papers and this was the perfect solution.  The letters are cut from the Cricut Lyrical Letters cartridge.

If you're goal is to use up your stash, well, you don't put the leftovers back in but you use them up.

... and make a couple of cards!  
Letters from Miss Elizabeth... yeah, stash so old I glued them on (and tossed the rest! but they were the right size ;-))
Add a few buttons, some baker's twine and a nice, general card to cheer someone.
The second card got a little washi tape, more of those infamous, old letters stickers and twine and another card to make someone smile.

Thanks for joining us on the hop.You'll hop over and see Wendi next but the whole list is here in case you missed someone!


  1. What a great idea to create a chalkboard from foam board. Love it and your cards too.

  2. Love the cards. The Happy is a fun way to lay out the sentiment.
    Good idea for the chalk board. No need to do extra work when you can save yourself some time and energy.
    Good luck with your classes.
    thanks for sharing.

  3. Great way to use
    the banners! And
