Back to School Mini Album


  Hello, everyone!

It’s Nancy here with a new project share!

 This week I am featuring:

Back To School Scrap Kit

This is such a fun kit!

It includes SVGs, clipart, and digital papers.

It was everything I needed to put together a fun little mini album. 

This album is perfect for documenting going back to school!

It’s been many years since I’ve had kids going to school

but I can still feel the excitement in the air this time of year.

Here’s the cover of my album:

I used 5 x 7 chipboard pieces for the base of my album.

Otherwise, everything is from the kit.

I printed out the papers and used them to cover the chipboard.

I inked around the edges with red ink.

The “Back To School” element was printed, fussy cut,

and adhered in place. 

I really love to fussy cut!

Here I used another paper to cover both sides.

More fussy cut elements were turned into belly bands and tuck spots.

The polka dot paper is used as a photo mat throughout the album.

Here I have another background paper,

along with another tuck spot and belly band.

The chalkboard in the center was fun to make!

What I did was fussy cut two of the chalkboard elements.

I adhered them together – back to back – only on the sides and bottom.

I then added red eyelets, so they could be inserted into the album.

Here you see the other side of the chalkboard.

It is now a pocket for a sweet little journaling pad.

I cut papers to fit the pocket,

and then just stapled a topper in place that matches the background paper.

The fussy-cut bus and pencil offer more tuck spots.

On the final pages, 

more elements and more tuck spots.

Here is the back cover:

To finish things off, I punched holes and added binding rings.

I tied pieces of coordinating ribbons to the rings.

This is a really fun kit that inspires all kinds of creative projects;

both for documentation and for gifts! ;o)
