I drew the apple and pencil and then scanned them into Canvas, created files for each layer and then transferred them back to the cutter to be cut out in the various colours. Talk about fun...and I LOVE how good they look. (Doing happy dance here.} I also like that either of my designs could be used as the front of a Back To School card (except, that with the inside layout, I wouldn't hand write my message; and would move the acetate sentiment further down the notebook page.)
The background DP is from an alphabet design page I've hoarded for years (sorry don't know designer) and the notebook page came from a little School Days ADDITIONZ booklet by Junkitz that I picked up on a clearance table somewhere.
If anyone would like a copy of either of the cutting files, just let me know and I'll email them to you. I also created an outline file if you wanted to do the inlaid die cutting technique with it. What I've used on my card is just the background file with the various pieces glued in place on top (except for the sentiment - it was inlaid.)
