MOnday Back to School with Imaginisce

Happy Monday!
Well, this post is very timely because I am back to school myself today.  Today and tomorrow we have meetings and getting our classroom all set up and ready!  Trying to get positive here for another school year.  Last year really wore me down and I haven't really recovered yet from it!  So crossing my fingers that this year is better.

Imaginisce gave the DT an assignment to come up with a project with a Back to School theme.  I knew exactly what I was going to make.  Michael's pocket layout in which I will keep all his important papers from Preschool 4!

I started out my layout with a piece of Core'dinations cardstock and scored the edges and lightly sanded the paper to give it a distressed look.  I then made my pocket using one of my favorite collections from Imaginisce Geek is Chic!  I used all my scraps on this layout.  I then sewed the sides shut with my trusty little sewing machine.  Finally I decorated it with some coordinating embellishments and I did a lot of stamping using some Paper Trey Ink school stamp sets.


 A close up of the embellishments and the stamping.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with the new digi release from Some Odd Girl.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

This is really sweet. This will be the first year I'm not getting back to school. I ended my teaching career last fall. I hope you and your boys will have a wonderful school year.

Good luck being back to school, hope this is a better year. I had a few years where I was still really burned out in September. I always love when you do posts and projects for school related memorabilia!
