Back to School – AE

This year I decided to create individual 6×8 albums for my daughters, these albums will feature monthly spreads to recap the highlights of the past month. I think this will help me manage my PL process as sometimes I have too many stories and it can be challenging to decided which one should be include.

I decided to start their album with the new school year as opposed to the calendar year. It felt like a better flow for their album. To do this page I used Ali’s September digital kit, which had a lovely mix of end of summer and back to school themes.

This picture is blurry but I thought it was the perfect reflection of the craziness of back to school and the fact that my oldest doesn’t love to pose for pictures. I added the “back to school” to the white space on the picture and complimented it with journaling, a thin strip of washi tape. The label placement was done to hide some items in the background that distracted from the main focus of the page. I love how this page is the beginning of her album. I will do the same process for my other two daughters.

I've been part of the scrapbook industry for over 10 years. My love of paper started at a very young age when I started hoarding a collection of notepads and fruit scented pens. My love of scrapbooking and memory keeping evolved when I became a mother. Over the course of my creative career, I've had the pleasure of designing for various manufactures; I currently design for Ali Edwards and Gossamer Blue. My style is eclectic with a flair for mixing embellishments, creating layers and a love for white space. As of two years ago, I shifted her creative focus to documenting our family’s daily activities with Project Life.
