Back to School Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone! Today I am participating in the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop! And, I am the Guest Designer this month, which means I got to choose the theme! FUN!  For me, August is all about Back To School, so naturally that is what I choose.  My children all went back to school just yesterday, so I don't have any of this years Back To School photos printed yet, but I am way behind in my scrapbooking, so I had plenty of photos to choose from.  I wanted to use some of my new Holiday Catalog Pre-Order goodies, you know how it is when you get new clothes or new toys, you want to use them right away.  The papers I used for my page are from the new Come to Gather Designer Series paper.  I loved the plaid and thought it worked nicely with the colors in my son's fourth grade  school picture.  The wood planks paper at the bottom is also from this pack.  

 After placing my photo and my title, I realized I left too much space at the top of the page, and so I tried to think of a fun accent to add.  I decided to use some strips of paper from my scraps that matched the stripes in the plaid.  The little strips were a nice place to add some journaling too.

The apples are a new Sneak Peek too! This is a new punch and stamp set called Harvest Hellos.   I love that the set and punch are both an apple or a pumpkin! How great is that? The ribbon is new too!  All of these products will be in the new Holiday catalog that comes out for customers on September 4th! Be sure to keep your eye out for that.

 I hope that you enjoyed my page and that you have some Back To School inspiration.  Be sure to follow along on the hop and check out what everyone else has made!  Next up is Sherry Roth at Stamped Treasures!

  1. BETH, I absolutely LOVE this layout... The colours are just perfect for your son's shirt... I do love the slight accent of the strips of paper...I think it just finished it off perfectly. Thank you for being Guest Designer for the month of August. Cheers Shaz

  2. Your "woven" corners were such a creative way to tie in the feel of your designer paper and a provide for journaling!
