Well, it's that time of year again.. time to start thinking about back to school shopping, organizing and planning! The kids are getting restless.. the teachers almost back in the classrooms, and parents have paper, pens and glue on the brain!
I have created a 12 by 12 layout for the "First Day' back at school. As well as an inspiration card for a college aged female heading back to the dorms in a few weeks time..
For the layout I used some Wild Saffron paper by K&Co.. as well as Bazill cardstock, with matching "First Day" chipboard stickers in Wild Saffron as well.. I used my Martha Stewart punches to create the birds and the tree/flowers. Some smaller pieces of Amy Butler papers and lots of colorful buttons! I hand stamped the school sign and found a "live laugh love" border sticker to stretch across the page.. the grass is Scenic Route paper cut up and distressed with some Staz-On inks. I have yet to add the picture of my son and some additional journaling, but I did leave room for it.
The card I made was created again out of Bazill cardstock. I used a K&Co adhesive "Handmade" sheet of paper on the front and added a "Dream Big" sticker from the Amy Butler "Sola" collection. The sticker inside is also the Sola collection and reads "The best way to predict your future is to create it".. by Peter Drucker.
