I am a traditional scrapbooker so this First Day of School scrapbook layout is done in the traditional 12" by 12" size. Sorry people...I am not into digital scrapbooking at all!
The background is a 12 x 12" sheet of yellow cardstock. I had a piece of school theme scrapbooking paper that had an all-over print to it. I cut just the school out of that piece of paper and a 2 3/4" wide strip and used that as the bottom border on this layout.
I used two 4" by 6" photos which I slightly cropped down. I matted them onto dark green and dark red cardstock and left an 1/8" edge. The title is KINDERGARTEN and I used red & white alpha stickers and placed them on black cardstock blocks. I cut each of them out and just placed them at the top of the page. I did the same exact thing for the word BUS and the 2014 which is underneath the right photo.
To finish up I used two vellum word stickers that I had leftover from another project. One says GIRLS ROCK and the other one says DIVA. Both are underneath the photo on the left and were attached using clear glue dots that are made for vellum. Above the photo on the left is a 3-dimensional tag that says All In A Days Work and I used 2 pieces of ribbon in yellow & red to finish that off.
Overall, I like the look of this page and it didn't take a long time to do nor did it cost me a lot of money. I basically used items from my scrap box or used my Cricut to make the layout. A nice easy one for beginners or for people who are looking for quick and easy. You can find coordinating First Day of School Scrapbooking Layouts here on my blog.
