{ippity} Books for Chick Challenges~

Hi there!  I finally had a little time to play with my {ippity} and it was so much fun!  I miss it a lot, and I'm hoping I can play more often!

Look at the fun 'paper back pack' I created with my 
{ippity} Books a'Flutter and {ippity} Stitches of Buttons. 
Aren't these bags so cute...I love creating with bags!!!  Look at the ca-ute polka dots and the school rule lined mini bags!  
I bought these from Kim over at her Etsy Endless Inkabilities shop:
I put some thin magnets underneath both buttons, so I can open and close the bags.  I stuffed the bags with tissue paper to show that you can fill them up with fun gifts (that's why they look kinda bumpy, LOL). I just had to put pattern papers on the books, so yes...there was some fussy cutting involved.

Hey, I'm hosting the sketch challenge over at Chick Challenges this week!  Click HERE to go to the Chick Challenges blog and play...and you could win these two {ippity} sets (with some other goodies):

Here's the sketch...I'd love to see what you can create with this!:

 Here's the back view to show the 'faux back pack straps' (red twine, also from Kim's Etsy shop..excellent and quick service!):

And a close-up of one of the faux buttons that I stamped.  This button is a perfect size to use with a 1" circle punch!

I hope you can join me with my sketch challenge this week! You have a week to create and link up!

Whew! I think we have to go school shopping for supplies and clothes soon...only about 30 days for us here in Arizona till school starts!  That's why I have 'school' on my mind...where did the summer go???
Have a fantastic {ippity} kind of day!

This little backpack is total fun! Looks like a great challenge -- with a couple of my favourite {ippity} stamps as a prize!
