Off to School Layout - Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Today I am joining in on the May 2015 Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop and I'm sharing a school layout using a favorite collection from Fancy Pants Designs.  There are 16 talented ladies participating this month.  You should have arrived here from Lee-Anne's blog.  

For my project this month I dug through my stash and found some papers from 2011!  I bought a few pages from the Off to School collection from Fancy Pants Designs with the obvious intention of scrapping school pictures...I just didn't get around to it until now! *grin*  Fortunately the collection is full of fun classic images and I love it as much today as I did when I first bought it!

In the top left I also pulled out a tool I haven't used in ages - scissors with decorative edges!  I used them to cut the "stamp" and then inked the edges.  I am not sure where I got the wood veneer pieces from, although I think they may have been Michael's store brand.  The project life style cards are waiting for journaling - I always add that after I share a project so my kids can have some privacy!  ;)

I threw in a piece of flair from the Basic Grey Hey Boy! line.

All of the pencils on the layout are trimmed out of a piece of paper from the collection.  I inked the edges and adhered them to chipboard before adding them to the layout. I love the dimension you can get with just a thin layer of chipboard!

Across the bottom I stacked more pencils and "stamps.


All of the little accent pieces, like the Report Card tucked behind the photo, were also trimmed out of one piece of paper from the Off to School collection.  In fact I only used 3 pieces of paper for this whole layout!
