First Day of Pre-K

I have a first day of school layout to share.  I wanted to use non-traditional colors for it.  I picked my daughter's favorite colors, purple and pink!  

I got this idea a few years ago from a great blog, Scrappin Cricut by Kendra Wiggins.  Here's her layout, which I absolutely love!
She used Cuttin Up for the font and Locker Talk for the cuts.

For my layout, I used Storybook for the font and Simply Charmed for the cuts.  
I used purple stickles for the scissors and some pink twine.

As you can probably see on the "R" I had a little friend try to do her own artistic work while I wasn't looking!  I decided not to redo it, and I thought it was kind of appropriate since it is her scrapbook she will share it  with her family one day.  
For the dash, I used a frame and manipulated the size in my gypsy to be .75 inches high and 1.65 inches wide.  Then I just made a shadow a little bigger.

Font-Storybook-2.35 in.
Other cuts-2.25 in.
White gel pen
Purple stickles
pink twine
gem sticker
Recollections cardstock
pattern paper for photo mats from my stash

Here is the finished layout with pictures:
I hope to share some more school layouts with you soon.

Also if you're looking for a good back-to-school gift for your child's teacher, here's an idea:


  1. ok these projects are amazing! You are on top of it girl! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

  2. Jaren, the layout is fabulous! I love the pink/purple color combo and the little cuts are adorable-the glue, crayons and scissors! What a fantastic Teacher gift idea to! TFS!

  3. Love your take on the layout-I'll admit to a pang of jealousy over you being able to use purple and pink (with boys, it's just a no, lol!)!! I REALLY like the teacher gift idea too-believe I'll be borrowing that. I always enjoy all your lovely comments so much :)


I love comments!!
