School Year Layout - CTMH August Stamp of the Month

Today I'm sharing this sweet layout that I made showcasing JJ's first and last days of preschool. This was his first year being enrolled in any kind of program - I'm lucky enough to be able to stay home with our boys, and I was really nervous/curious to see how he would take to it. Spoiler: he loved it. He had preschool M-W-F mornings, 8:45am-11:15am, and he was always wondering when his next school day was. We were also really happy with the program he was enrolled in - his teachers were amazing, and it is just really well run.

Anyways, onto the layout! Full disclosure - this is an almost identical scraplift of the Close to my Heart layout used to highlight the School Year Stamp of the Month. But it was exactly what I was looking for for this story - a 'then & now' comparison. (Excuse the blurring on some photos, but I don't like putting the school details out onto the internet.)

I used the soon-to-be-retiring Prickly Pear papers to create this page. I loved the primary colours in it for a school based page. And this month's Stamp of the Month is one of my favourites. I'll be using it on school pages for years to come!

I also used a flip flap to be able to add a few more pictures to the layout - I am usually a photo-heavy scrapbooker, so I love having this easy option to add more pictures or journaling!

I used the pencil from the School Days stamp to create my own background paper on the outside edges, as well as all of the other stamping on the page.

And a few close-ups...

Just a reminder, the School Year stamp set is only available in August, and is $6 with a $50 purchase! (Or $23 full retail value). Perfect for all those 1st Day of School pages coming up! I know I'll be using it again in another month or so, once I have two little ones starting school (this will be Austen's first year in preschool!) As always, you can access my shop here: craftwithnicole.closetomyheart.ca
