For this project I used this great set from Digi Blessings called Tammy Tween Girls Rule which has 1 image and 3 sentiments, perfectly suited to a sassy teenage girl.

I bought a stationery set and decorated all the items using elements from the digi set. For the pencil tin I covered the top with the paper and used a sequin trim on the edges to add a bit of girly bling J Using colours from the paper I coloured the image and sentiments, cut them out and ran through my Xyron sticker maker.

The rubber I coverd with a srap of the paper and added a sentiment. I liked the duh as it seemed quite appropriate if you had made a mistake and needed to rub something out…..
I added the same sentiment to the pencil sharperner popping some more of the sequin trim around it. On the ruler I covered it with some more of the paper and added the ‘whatever’ sentiment to it, typical teenage wording!
