If you are a follower on my personal blog, you have already seen these. But since this is my “memory keeping” blog, I wanted to share them here as well.
As the school year comes to a close, or maybe has already closed, you may find some extra time on your hands to catch up on those little school scrapbooks for you little ones (or maybe not so little, possibly). Here’s a couple cover pages I made quite awhile back (but still think they are cute enough to share, oldies but goodies, right?)
For my daughter that was entering preschool last year (which was a very short lived adventure, it seems) I made this cover page.
Cute, huh? I used “The Grade School Stack” paper pack by DCWV.
I don’t remember the exact size but I think I used 3″ letters – may have been 2 3/4″.
And, here is the cover page for my oldest daughter’s school scrapbook.
I used “School Days” paper pack by The Paper Studio.
The bottom sheet was used at the full 12×12. I actually cut out the center of it, about 10 inches, so I could use the center for other things. No sense in wasting cardstock, right? The glitter star paper I cut about 11×11, and slightly distressed the edges just a bit (Also cut out the center of this sheet too). Center black sheet is about 10×10.
‘The letters were cut at 3 1/4″ from the Don Juan Cartridge. I Distressed those edges as well to make them stand out a bit more and shadowed them with white Cardstock.
The journaling is simply a sheet of cardstock from another pack, cut to 5″x3″, and I printed out the text, trimmed it, and distressed it. I just made it “Volume 1″ because I am positive there will be other albums for school stuff. But I didn’t want to make it specific to the year because I hope to fit at least a couple grades’ worth of memories in this book.
Aren’t these embellishments cute?! Remember how I said I cut out the center of the first base page? Well that is where I got these from! I cut them out of that cardstock! Worked out nicely, only had to use one of those sheets instead of 2! Woot Woot.
And that cute little apple, was cut using the Create A Critter Cartridge, at 4″.
That’s it for now! I’ll be sharing a Kindergarten mini book in the next week or so, so stay tuned for that!
