Check out Create a Friend Ideas part 1 of this 2 part post.
I know a lot of kids are getting ready to go back to school and some are already back in. My kids are headed back in a couple weeks and that means more time for me to scrapbook! With all the hustle and bustle of the summer, I don’t get as much time to make layouts. The bitter irony of it is I take more pictures in the summer and now they just sit there. I get behind so quickly. So, today I created these two fun layouts: one for a girl and one for a boy and both for their first day back at school.
Did you know that the new Cricut Explore Air 2 cuts twice as fast as traditional Cricut models?!
I used the Create a Friend Cricut cartridge. Projects I have for this cartridge are in abundance! I think I could use it on half of my scrapbook layouts, between this one and the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, I am set for making cute little people. So these pages were actually super simple. I used the DCWV Homeroom paper stack, for both layouts and now I have tons of coordinating sheets so I can scrapbook the whole school year with one stack of patterned paper.
OK, to make your scrapbook page go together quickly the little boy was cut out at 7″ and 3″ for the School Days. And for the little girl she is cut out at 7.25″ and Back to School at 4.5″. Each layout has a spot for a 4″ x 6″ picture and (3) 3″ x 3″ photo spots. Super easy and quick layout, and then you are ready to place your kid’s first day of school pictures and your done. Well at least with the one day 😉
