It's hard to believe it's already time to start thinking about back to school, wow! If you're like me you have lots of pictures of that first day back. I always get lots of pictures while waiting for the bus and the bus coming down the road which is what inspired this layout. This is such a bright and cheery layout and it makes me happy. Maybe it's the thought of back to school that makes me happy, LOL...just kidding! ; ) Click on pictures to enlarge.
Cartridges used are...Doodlecharms, Locker Talk, Create a Critter, Paper Doll Dress Up, Everyday Paper Dolls and George and Basic Shapes. If you do not have one of these cartridges let me know and I will try to help you find a comparable substitution.
Pattern paper is by Piggy Tales and it is perfect for this layout. I just love the colors. Most of the solid color cardstock is by Paper Trey Ink and SU!.
I just love the kids waiting at the bus stop. If you have just boys or just girls you can easily change to suit your needs.
It's not back to school without a little bookworm. At least not according to my friend Kristin as she said I must add a bookworm and I think it is perfect. Thanks Kristin!
I Love how this Adorable little school bus turned out. It is the bus from Doodlecharms and with a little bling it really brings it to life. Of course you can personalize the side of the bus with your school name or back to school greeting. I will explain how to do this in the tutorial that is included in the kit.
Ok, every year what are we parents hit with right off the bat...back to school pictures, of course! What is usually included in your picture pack...all those little pictures that are sometimes sticky on the back and you never really know what to do with them. Here you go, they are the perfect size to make a pack of pictures to fit in this cute little back pack. I will explain how to do this and will even include the clear film / vellum to make this picture pack more realistic. I used the Argyle Cuttlebug folder to emboss part of the back pack.
Here is a close up of the Adorable school kids waiting at the bus stop. How Cute are they? What really makes them are their Cute little faces. With the help of Peachy Keen Everyday Character stamp assortment it is so easy to achieve perfect faces every time. Of course you can draw in the faces or leave them like the Cricut cuts them if you do not have face stamps. To learn more or to purchase the face stamps go to http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/ . I used item # PK-490 on this project.
Kit's are $25 each plus $5.50 priority mail shipping, if you're in the lower 48 states. I will combine shipping if you purchase more than one kit. Contact me for combine shipping quote.
All paper and cardstock needed for this layout is included in the kit along with all the embellishments and photo mats. You will receive all instructions, a picture and a cardstock guide to make it easy for you to recreate. You will need a Cricut machine and the cartridges listed above along with your favorite adhesives such as glue dots, pop dots, glue pen, glue runner, etc., ink and pens for detailing and your basic scrapbooking tools. I also used Glossy Accents on the kids eyes and pink chalk on their cheeks, both of which are not included in the kit.
