Back to School Stories Documented with Tracey Fox

What back to school stories do you have to tell? Maybe you want to document your kid’s first day this year, or if you don’t have kids, even you went to school at some point, right? Pull out those vintage photos from your first day of school and start recording those memories! Today, Tracey Fox is here to share how she documented her nephews’ first day photos, using our August Kit and add-ons, in such a fantastic way! Let’s take a look!
Happy back to school season! The August Kit and extras are full of great products to help you document all of your back to school stories, from first days, to school supply shopping, to sports tryouts and games. This year, I was lucky enough to see my nephews off on their first day of school, and I was so excited to get to document it using these fun items!

Supplies | August 2018 Kit, Back to School Acrylic, Good Job Stamp, Mini Dated Stamp, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
It was a no-brainer for me that I was going to use the Back to School Acrylic for my page’s title. To ensure that the white words were visible on the page, I grabbed the blue graph paper (Noteworthy Paper 3) from the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection to use as a background for the elements of my page. I cut the sheet into a large banner flag and adhered it to a full sheet of Noteworthy Paper 2.

After printing two 3″ x 4″ photos from the kids’ first day of school, I chose 3” x 4” and 4” x 6” tags from the August Kit that both reminded me of school and coordinated with each other in color. I then arranged them in a grid design with my photos. I love the pretty rainbow of colors on the “12345” and tag-patterned tags! The journaling tag with the cute pencil on it made a great home for the journaling I added with my typewriter, and I added the date to the leftover space on the tag using the Mini Dated Stamp.

To include some extra embellishment to the page, I added a few diecuts from the August Kit, and I used a 1” circle punch to punch colorful hearts from a 3” x 4” tag. I lined them up in a row across the bottom of the blue patterned paper, on either side of the title. I machine-stitched a line through the hearts to connect them to each other, and I think it adds a really sweet touch to the page.

Thanks for stopping by today and for checking out my layout. I can’t wait to see how you use these fun products to document your back to school stories!
