Today, the Creative Circle design team is featuring another of Liz’s fabulous 3D patterns – this time it’s a backpack.  So appropriate as all the kids in my neighborhood have just gone back to school!  Here’s my ensemble:beelinestamping.com 9-5-15a

I’m a complete Vera Bradley freak.  In fact, I have two of their backpacks.  I just love all their floral patterns and the English Garden designer series paper pack really reminds me of Vera Bradley fabric.  I thought it was a good fit for my backpack ensemble.

Liz’s pattern has the flap and buckle on the front.  However, while working with it, I thought it would look nice with a pocket on the front, so I created a small gift card envelope using the Envelope Punch Board and attached it to my backpack.  Wouldn’t this make a nice teacher’s gift?  A Starbucks card in the pocket and some mini note cards with envelopes inside – what teacher wouldn’t like that?  Another thing the front pocket could hold would be some postage stamps – convenient to mail out the cards inside, eh?

Would you like to win a copy of the pattern? Leave me a comment and tell me about one of your favorite memories of being in school.  On Sept 20th, I will pick a winner at random and Liz will send you a link for your free copy!

Can’t wait until then?  Go ahead and order yours today.  The pattern with video is just $3.99 and can be found here

Go ahead – you know you want to!!
