August Stamp of the Month - School Year

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring School Year. This set has 9 stamps. If you have come here from Wendy Coffman's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

 Every August I see everyone posting their children's First Day of school on Facebook.  Then come May, here we go again!  Last Day of School!  My children are grown.... so no First and Last day pictures are going on in this house anymore!  But I LOVE seeing everyone else's photos and how much the children change in less than a year!  I sure hope they are scrapbooking those pictures.  This month's Stamp of the Month is PERFECT for it.  I really wanted to create a layout so I 'borrowed' some pictures from my friend who was GLAD to let me use them.  She is a little behind on her scrapbooking.  

I used our brand new Enchantment Fundamental papers with a bit of Basic Fundamental.  The pattern is from our new Make It From the Heart 3 book.  I love the Saffron diagonal print pages that I used for my base pages.  It's subtle but just enough.  

For the Chalkboards, I stamped the chalkboard image onto Ruby Cardstock.  Then I cut out a piece of black cardstock to fit inside the frame of the chalkboard.  I used Versamark ink and White embossing powder to emboss the "First / Last Day of School".  

Check out the arrows.... these were stamped on the Peacock cardstock but one of the arrows I stamped on the back of the cardstock using the lighter shade.  I'm going to LOVE our new two toned cardstock!!
