I don't know about you but I don't purchase the package of school pictures that Life Touch takes at our school. I have my opinion's but believe it or not, I'll keep them to myself. I do purchase the collage sheet for each boy so I can put it in their school album.
The school albums I'm doing for my boys is a small project to highlight their school years. It's a 12 x 12 album and there are 3 pages for each grade. 1st page is their collage, 2nd page is their class photo with names of every child and the 3 page is their report card, handprint (if I remember), a list of fav subjects, best friends, that kind of stuff. I also keep every layout simple so that is quick and I won't put it off.
Here is Colby's Gr. 2 collage page. Like I said, super simple. I used pp from Playdate pp pack, the "2" is cut with the bigshot and the A+ sticker is from the Playdate accents pack. I made the scallops by punching a bunch of 3/4" circles then cutting them in half with a scissor so they are not all perfect 1/2 circles.
I also wanted to share this card I mad for my friends birthday. Way back in November and just found it on my camera (along with 200 other pictures).
The pp is retired, I was using up scraps. The butterflies were cut with the big shot as well as the tag. The embossing was done with a cuttlebug folder and the jewel are SU! rhinestones. I think I've gone through 3 packs of those already, yikes!
Well, off to plan a project for Friday night!!
