First Day Of School - Scrap Town Lady Has Graphic 45 ABC Primer!

Wahooo! It's finally Friday. Who's got plans to scrapbook this weekend? I have another ScrapTownLady layout to share today.

In my neck of the woods, kids go back to school after Labor Day. I thought a lot of you might have some Back to School photos you need to scrap. The Graphic 45 ABC Primer collection is just what you need. I used it for this layout of my kids on the first day of school. This is an older photo, from when my son was just starting Kindergarten. All 3 of my kids are in college now! Can't you tell how excited he is. My oldest daughter, not so much. Otherwise, maybe it just wasn't cool to be excited. lol.

I think Graphic 45 was the first to start the trendy, chalkboard craze with this collection. One of my favorite things about Graphic 45 papers is fussy cutting them. How can you not when they have such adorable images on them...

Here is my fussy cutting tip.... Don't try to cut on the line, but just a bit outside. Then you won't lose any of the definition. Then use some foam adhesive to give it some dimension so it really stands out.

I used some My Favorite Things dies here too for my flags and flourish. If you are just starting out and wondering what dies to get, let me tell you, I use these dies all the time for cardmaking and scrapbooking.
