House Mouse 'School Supplies'

It's time for a new theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge
This fortnight the lovely Snoopy is choosing the theme 

you can also choose the Anything Goes option

I made a little notebook,you can never have too many of those can you!

I will be using this to keep my secret passwords in, shh ;-) I used an older version of the 'School Supplies' stamp now available from Stampendous. I love that they are re-releasing the older images in cling. They are easier to store and cheaper to ship! :-)

The paper is an old Basic Grey Pack which is now unavailable. 
I used 
 Tim Holtz Schoolhouse Stencil
 Hemptique Natural Thick Twine
 Fiskers Notebook Edger Punch 
 Bind-It All to make the notebook. This is very similar to a Cinch Machine

We are showcasing HERO ARTS PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

Aren't these little owls adorable! I love their big eyes.  I stamped the image and then masked before stamping the background. The ombre ink pad gives a lovely effect don't you think?  I have to say, this  Design Block Tiny Ink Spots  Stamp is one of my most used and favorite background stamps. Not too fussy and can be used for anything!

For the inside I used an owl from  'Missing You' stamp set, another cutie!

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
