Star Student layout (for BBTB2)

Happy Monday!  I hope all the moms out there had a wonderful day yesterday!  I got to spend my day with most of my extended family, including my amazing mom!  And my kids made me breakfast served on a silver tray!  But on to crafting….it's a school themed challenge at BBTB2 this week-great for those end of year school events coming up here in May.  I can personally attest to the fact that if you have school age kids, between all the end of year concerts, award banquets, parties, and graduation it gets kind of crazy!!!

For my project, I made a layout for pictures from some of the end of year events we will be attending this month.  Since it will include pictures of all three kids, I went with a general title of Star Student.  The Star Student font is the sugar script font from the Type Candy cartridge.  The stack of books and the layered stars are from the CM This and That cartridge.  I went with bright primary colors to match the cute print papers are from the Echo Park Paper and Glue collection.  Gotta love that book print paper!  I'm going to print my pics 3x5 instead of 4x6 so it will show too.

Type Candy-Sugar Script font cut at 1 1/2 inches
CM This and That-books cut at 4 inches, stars cut at 3 inches
Paper-Echo Park Paper and Glue collection prints, CTMH solids
brown chalk ink
square punch (cut in half for the photo corners)

Can't wait to see what you'll come up with for the school themed challenge-I'm looking forward to seeing projects!  Check out the cool design team projects over at BBTB2 for some inspiration!

  6. This paper is absolutely adorable as is your layout. I love the font that you chose also. Your layouts are always so fabulous!

  7. Such a great idea to do a general title for all the kids. I've started combining my kids' pages too so I don't get so far behind. Love the colors, and I just love that Type Candy cartridge. It was a Christmas present a few years ago, and I use it all the time for my layouts.
