Scrapbooking | Kindergarden Life with Kelly

Hi everyone!! I'm so pleased to share two Project Life layouts with you today. I really need to stay motivated to finish my 6 year-old's Kindergarten book before summer ends and he's in 1st grade, right? One way to make it easier on myself is to use the smaller 6x8 books with only 4 pockets to fill. Much easier and quicker than the traditional 12x12 pages with 8 pockets!


For Project Life or scrapbooking, I love using arrows to point out the important things. The Write Stuff: Love Story has two arrows that I use quite often, like the ones pointing to the "100" on Jackson's math worksheet.


Another way to make life easier on myself is to start with pre-made journaling cards and then embellish them as needed. The sketchy rectangle in Scenery: Rectangled & Triangled works out wonderfully for highlighting key words. To finish it up, I stamped "original" and "lol" from The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect between the bubble and the caption.


In addition to documenting all the big days of school like the First Day, Halloween, Valentine's Day, etc. I like to document the NON days of school ... like when they have it off.


The asterisks in Scenery: Big Bang Bling are perfect for a snow day. Use a few different colors for depth and you're done in a minute. Before stamping "hello" from The Big, the Bold & the Happy I touched a darker ink pad to the bottom of the letters. I originally stamped "lucky day" (The Big, the Bold & Extras) directly on the journaling card, but it got lost in all the other black journaling so I stamped it on a colored cardstock for some contrast.


Here's an easy border from cutting a thin piece of patterned paper and then stamping "good times" repeatedly from The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect.

Thanks so much for looking!
