Celebrate New Beginnings With This First Day of School Scrapbook Layout

The back-to-school season represents a fresh start, new possibilities and the continued growth of knowledge. And while going back to school this year may be a bit unusual for some, it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate all the amazing students and educators! Blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu is gearing up for the season by preparing a fun school scrapbook layout — pencil it is as your next project!

Sachiyo’s Inspiration

Do you have family traditions for the first day of school?

In the morning of the first day of school, we always take a photo of our kids holding a chalkboard that shows their height and weight. (We also take a similar photo on the last day of school so we can see how much our kids have grown during the year.) We then take a family photo in front of our house before walking to school.

That first day back to school this year will be different, since school will be virtual and we won’t walk to school, but I can’t wait to take a photo to go with this school scrapbook layout and add another page to our family album!

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use the notebook lines patterned paper as the base.

Step 2: Cut two 1″ x 11″ strips and two 1” x 10” strips of the geometric patterned triangles paper. Cut the end of the strips at 45 degrees to make a miter joint. Ink the edges using the ink pad of the Alphabet Stamp Kit System.

Step 3: Cut a piece of Black Cardstock to measure 8″ x 9″. Adhere it to the base. Adhere the geometric triangles patterned paper strips to frame the Black Cardstock as shown.

Step 4: Adhere stickers and a laser cut border, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.
