School Layout with Jack & Jill Kit

Before the kids are home for the summer, I like to get their school scrapbooks all caught up for the year. This past school year my daughter served on student government. It was hard at times, but overall was a great and rewarding experience for my daughter. I created this page to jot down a few sentiments about how proud my husband and I were of my daughter for doing her best and being such a dependable young lady.

I used papers and embellishments from the May 2012 Jack & Jill kit along with my Cricut Expression machine, cartridges, & fea sheets of plain cardstock from my stash to design this page.

The Eagle is my daughter's school mascot. He is carrying one of the Maya Road kraft flags from the kit. I used the red ink from the kit to stamp a letter "J" on the flag . . . a subtle nod towards my daughter to show her that we are her biggest fans. I used my Cuttlebug machine and a Chevron embossing folder to add subtle texture to the circular background.

I LOVE mixing fonts together in my titles. I LOVE the sparkly blue letters contained in the kit. They are the perfect size to spell out longer words in my titles. I added a decorative brad from the kit to accent my die cut shape and then added a stamped image from my stash (Lawn Fawn Stamps). The border strip underneath the title is also stamped using the We R Memory Keepers roller stitch stamps.

Next, I die cut out a journaling block and an accent block. I used goodies from the kits to add some detail and dimension to each of these. I also added embossing to the "school zone" phrase.

Finally, I cut a number background to place behind my photo. The Basic Grey buttons from the kit help the photo to feel like it is anchored to the page instead of floating around.

Thanks for stopping by today! Pull out that Jack & Jill kit and scrap some school memories of your children before they are home for the summer and the memories become faded. :)

Happy Scrapping!
