Hey crafty friends…welcome back! I’m here today to share with you a new back to school scrapbook layout. This layout using a sketch from the January challenges over at Paper Issues, and a collection from Jillibean Soup.
If you’ve been following with me the last few months the January sketch challenges Paper Issues had has really been my jam. I’ve used so many of them. There are even ones I’ve used and haven’t shared. Here is the one I used for this layout.
The sketch called for torn papers, which is something I haven’t really mastered yet, so I used the same general shape of the papers, but kept the edges straight cut. The sketch also called for the embellishments in a vertical fashion across the whole page. I didn’t have anything that worked in that fashion so I just went with what felt right.
The paper collection I used is a very old one from Jillibean Soup. So old that unfortunately the company doesn’t make paper anymore 🙁 It’s really sad because they always had nice neutral embellishments and papers.
I titled this layout Hello New School because it really was for both of them. Our girl started Kindergarten this year so for her it was a whole new school. Our son had been here previously, but did cyber school last year due to everything going on with the pandemic. His return to the elementary school had him in a new part of he building since he is in 5th grade…all new.
Well – I’m signing off to go and try to come up with what my next creation will be. I have a die-cut title I want to use, but no papers that really match so it will be a challenge. Until next time….stay crafty!
