Back to School

Back to school in January? Sure! Why not?! It felt good to finally take care of 2012's back to school pictures. Especially since I picked up some super cute papers (a couple of months ago) to scrap this year's pictures with!

I needed some inspiration to get going, and boy did I find some! I loved the confetti border on this layout from MME and just had to scraplift (I even used the same paper line, although I had already picked it out to use; just a happy coincidence).

 And a few close ups of the details...

Products: MME 'My Girl' paper, brads and stickers; Echo Park 'Country Drive' pink cardstock; October Afternoon 'Daily Flash' pop drops; MME 'Boy Crazy' enamel dots; Pink Paislee 'Artisan Words' star stickers.

When I was searching for inspiration for that first layout, I came across a layout I had pinned quite a while ago, and thought it would be great for the next layout. You can see the original here (the second one down, titled 'Miss Independent'). I really wanted to include the same banner detail. And I have to say, mini banners are so cute! They would be fun to make to coordinate with your seasonal decor.

See? So cute!

I love how this LO turned out. The black hearts were bare chipboard from Um Wow Studio that I coloured black with a marker and then topped with glossy accents. They are so shiny in real life.

Products: Amy Tangerine 'Sketchbook' papers and brads; Hemptique hemp cord; Um Wow Studio confetti heart chipboard and banner badge.

This last layout really had me struggling. I think double layouts have become the hardest for me to do. Especially when I want to use a whole lot of different pattern papers because they are all way too cute!

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Products: Echo Park 'School Days' papers; Fancy Pants 'Off to School' papers and journal sticker; Karen Foster stickers; Tim Holtz distress paint; Um Wow Studio chipboard arrows, stars and confetti stars.


  1. Your layouts are always so amazing! I have to agree About the paper- there are just too many pretty ones!

  2. I love all three of these COLORFUL layouts Nina!!! But I especially love that banner!!
