Back to School Layout and Card with Authentique and Xyron

Hi Authentique Fans!!! Pam here today and guess what time of year it is!!! It is time for SCHOOL! We  love to take those first day of school photos whether our kids are able to go to their local school or like us having virtual school! I am sharing how to create a that first day of school layout!  
Did you know there are some fabulous sites that you can get layouts and card sketches to work with? Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has a "free" sketch layout each month but there are other sites like A Cherry on Top or Page Maps that has both card and layout sketches to name a couple more. Some also have challenges using sketches! 

When you work with layouts you can go literal with the sketch or use it as a jumping off point like I did with my layout! I added a collection of journal cards and paper to create the patter of thirds from the layout. 

 Added a place for a photo where the Title is shown. 

Add small cards and border strip where the flowers are shown to be. 

Add a the school banner from the Scholastic to top of layout using pop dots and natural twine bows. 

If you aren't a Scrapbooker that is okay; you can use the same sketch idea to create a card or maybe some altered work. Really a sketch is the jumping off place for your creative style. Enjoy, Pam

  1. Oh my God! Your blog is so creative and fun to read. Please keep uploading content like this as I loved what you had to share with us. I am reading blogs after so long time as I was busy completing my dissertation. For that, I took dissertation abstract help from a professional and he helped me in scoring well in the class. Though now that I am free, I will enjoy more of my leisure time reading.

  2. Such kind of cards are very useful for students because through these they feel pleasure and get inspiration about going ahead. They send these towards each other and feel happy and joy. coursework writing services.
