Back to School Scrapbook Layout. Create a cute back to school scrapbook layout to remember your child’s first day of school.
Have your kids gone back to school yet? Mine started last Monday. I love to scrapbook special moments for our family album and for my kid’s albums. Their first day of school each year is a big day and I always take pictures. Every year I have taken a picture of them holding a sign with their grade level. I do the same thing on the last day of school as well. It is so fun to see how much they grown over the year!

Back to School Scrapbook Layout
I started with a background paper that had different multi-colored hearts on it. I found a fun paper that had patterned strips on it, one of which had some little buses on it. It was perfect for this layout. I used my dial trimmer to cut the paper into strips. I ended up using five strips from the same paper.
I wanted to create a scallop border on the top and bottom strips of the Oh Happy Life paper, rather than just having a plain flat border. The dial trimmer makes creating a scalloped edge easy.
Since the page was already so busy, I wanted solid color mats for all of my photos. To make the ones with the grade levels on them stand out, I used yellow cardstock and the Dial Trimmer to scallop all the edges.
For the other smaller pictures I used white to mat each photo. Only one photo is in color to show their first day of school outfits. To finish off the page, I added gold sparkly Thickers to spell out Back to School 2017.
I also added some beautiful layered paper stickers throughout the layout to add some dimension to the page.
I love that I was able to trim all my pictures, strips of paper, and even scallop the edges of my paper with one tool. It made this layout come together really quickly.
