For lots of people these days it means “Back to School.” Even I am about to begin classes again, even though the new semester hasn’t officially started yet. So I think it’s about time to talk a little about scrapping school memories. Being a teacher myself, I can never get enough of school related products, as there’s always something school related to scrap about, and I have a growing stash of school kits. There are tons of great products out, and this post would be a never-ending one, would I begin to list all of them here. Therefore, I’m going to reduce myself to just a couple of my favorite ones. The layout above actually uses a collection of all kinds of kits that I have, some retired, some still very well out on the market. It probably is one of my most elaborate pages I’ve ever done, even using some of my own extractions. The majority of papers and elements, however, comes from Explore. Learn. Grow. by Sahlin Studio over at the Lilypad.
Always looking out for school related scrapbook kits, I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it, loved the papers and elements that came with it, and the layouts I saw that used this kit. This kit also comes with a couple of extras sold separately that will make every school page stand out from the gallery. But even with just the basic kit it’s a lot of fun to play with. Here is another page that I scrapped, using mainly this kit (except for the pencil sharpener, the scissors and the pencils).
Anyways, my suggestion is to check out the stores’ seasonal sections, and lots of them will have a special school category where you can find lots of fun school kits to scrap your own or your child’s memories of your/their school days.
