Directions:

I treated each page like a mini scrapbook page, being sure to add all my embellishments before adhering each page to the book.  The base of each page is brown cardstock, cut to 5 ¾” x 5 ¾”.  The cover page uses the Back to School paper which was cut slightly smaller than the cardstock and adhered.  Green cardstock was cut 4 ½” x 4 ½” and the brown cardstock was cut slightly larger.  “School Days” was cut with the Cricut Expression, Plantin cartridge at 2” from the School Days paper.  3 large brads were added between the words.

I used the reverse side of the Back to School pattern paper which was cut at 3” x 5 ¾” and adhered to the brown cardstock base.  A strip of School Days paper was cut ½” x 5 ¾” and adhered just above.  White cardstock was cut 4” x 3 ½”, lightly inked and adhered to the left side.  A small image was cut from the School Days paper, matted with brown cardstock and adhered to the corner.  Another piece of white cardstock was cut 4” x 5”, lightly inked and adhered to the right side.

The Goody 2 Shoes was cut into 2 pieces, each 6” x 6” which were then torn to fit the cardstock base, leaving a white edge around the page.

White cardstock was cut into a 4” x 4” square, lightly inked and then adhered to the left side.

A tag was cut from the School Days paper and matted with red cardstock.

Green cardstock was cut into a 3 ¾” x 3 ¾” square and matted with white cardstock which was cut into a 4” x 4” square and  then lightly inked.

A strip of white cardstock was cut 1” x 4”, lightly inked and adhered with staples. 

The Prep School paper was cut 2 ½” x 5 ¾” and added to each page.

A strip of the reverse side of the Prep School paper was cut ½” x 5 ¾” and adhered along the edge.  White cardstock was cut 2” x 3” and 1 ½” x 4”, lightly inked and adhered to the left side.  A large brad anchors the bottom strip.

2 apples were cut using the Cricut Expression, Plantin cartridge at 2”.  These were adhered with pop dots.

White cardstock was cut 2” x 4 ¼”, lightly inked and adhered to the right side.

2 large brads were added under the cardstock.

An award was cut using the Cricut Expression, Sports Mania cartridge at 2” from brown and white cardstock.  After lightly inking the edges, it was adhered to the right side.

Brown cardstock was added to the back side for a finished look.

HAPPY SCRAPPIN’!
