I decided to use my scanner to make my own digital paper. I had these large colored paper clips so I just scattered them all over the scanner and scanned them. Once I printed out the sheet, I picked the spot on the sheet that was the most interesting to me and cut out that section. I rounded the corners, I applied a few strokes of a pale green acrylic paint, inked the edges with Hawaiian Shores ink and wrinked that paper up and then ironed it out. It looks so much better in person!. The notebook paper actually was a complete accident. My son was playing with the printer when I wasn't looking and before I knew it this notebook paper was coming out of the printer. I took that as a sign that I should use it, so I fed that paper back into the printer and using MS Word and a font called "Dear Teacher" typed out my sentiment. I tore the corner out to keep with the distressed look of the patterned paper. The circular tag was stamped first with Polka Dot Basic in Hibiscus Burst on Hibiscus Burst cardstock. I then stamped the star with the dashed lines from the 2009 Holiday Tag Collection in Hawaiian Shores ink as well as ink the edges. I love when you find a stamp in a seasonal set that can be used for other things! I handwrote the A+ using a black Sharpie pen and then stapled the tag onto the notebook paper. The ribbon is Hawaiian Shores Swiss Dot.
