To create this layout you will need:

Take a closer look at the Back To School ABC Handwriting Stencil and Dual-Tip Pens in the video below.

Step 1: Use a piece of blue thought bubbles designer paper as base.

Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip from the school buses designer paper and a 12″ x 2″ strip from White Solid Cardstock.

Step 3: Use the ruler edge of the Back To School ABC Handwriting Stencil to draw ruled handwriting lines on the cardstock strip with the Black Dual-Tip Pen; draw a dashed line across the middle of the strip, then a solid line 1/2″ above and 1/2″ below.

Step 4: Use the Back To School ABC Handwriting Stencil to trace uppercase letters across the ruled handwriting lines strip, alternating the five different shades of pens (rosey red, pure orange, spring green, pure blue and purple orchid). (Tip: For a crisp result, trace the outline of each letter with the fine tip of the pen first, followed by filling in with the wider tip.)

Step 5: Mount alphabet ruled handwriting lines strip onto the school bus paper strip, then mount across top of base page, approximately 1/2″ from the top edge.

Step 6: Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut three 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ photo mats and one 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ photo mats from various designer papers. Mount three 3″ x 4″ photos and one 4″ x 4″ photo onto the mats and adhere onto the base page below the border as shown.

Step 7: Add one of the journal embellishments and journal with one of the pens. Add other embellishments to the layout as desired.
