I can't believe school already started for my boys. Where did summer go? My oldest Joshua started his Junior year in high school and my second son Jaden started his 6th grade.
As you may know, I am into the Micro Notes these days. I decided to create Micro Notes for each of my children. I can think of so many ways to use these Micro Notes during school year. I can journal, document moments and add photos.
I used the 6x6 paper pad for the covers and add embellishments. I used different color rings that matches the decor of each covers. It's really easy to make and so much fun. I created each one to match my kid's characters.
My 3 year old daughter Juliet is really excited to go to school. She missed the cut out for her to start kindergarten this year so she will start T-K next school year. I created this Micro for her all in pink rings. How adorable is the girl with the pony tails.
My oldest son Joshua does not like to take pictures anymore. I guess he feels he's "too cool" for photos. I still decided created a Micro Notes for him that I plan to use for a little journal or maybe even document his many of "Firsts" such as first crush, first date, first girlfriend and many more. I may not have a lot of pictures but I can add do more of journaling.
Last but not the least, the middle child Jaden. He is the "fun" one who is very adventurous. I know that I will be able to add so many pictures of him and his friends in this Micro Notes. I can document his band concerts and school plays.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy viewing my Micro Notes. Maybe you can create one for each of your children as well. Try it because it's really fun to create.

Hello everyone. Don't you just love the new School Days collection? It's great for all those "Back to School" layouts and Teacher Appreciation gifts. 
For my project, I decided to make a school bus shaped pencil/pen holder that could be a gift for a teacher or bus driver. The holder itself is basically just a square box made from thick chipboard and foamboard with a bus on the front.
The holder is filled with a pack of sticky notes, mechanical pencils, and I added some fun die cuts too.
The black and yellow patterned papers from the collection worked perfectly for this project.
Four of the bus riders are stickers from the collection, but one of the boys and the bus driver were taken from other lines.
Lots of star-shaped sprinkles were used. I also used some round sprinkles and brads for the lights in the back and the front of the bus. Matte ModPodge was used to seal the piece.
Thanks so much for joining me today. Happy Crafting! :)

School Days Mini Album | with Tya

I have to admit- I am on such a mini-album kick lately! I just love creating these albums. Probably because I get to play with so many fun products! Today I am sharing my latest mini-album featuring the adorable School Days collection. This mini-album also features a box to store the album in. I have included an introduction and a walkthrough video of this mini-album but here are some still shots of the album.

 I followed a tutorial on YouTube to create the box as well as the mini-album. They can be found here:

 Here is just a small sample of pictures of the inside of the mini-album. The album measures 6 1/2 x 8 inches and is constructed using chipboard, cardstock and lots of  School Days products. It has 3 base pages with many fold-outs, flaps, and pockets for photos, journaling or memorabilia. I love all of the interactive elements in this album.

This project came together rather easily. The longest part was choosing how to decorate all the pages! (but that is honestly my favorite part so I don't mind too much) 😊
Here is my intro and walkthrough video. I appreciate so much you taking a few minutes on your Saturday to stop by! Thanks so much! Please let me know if you have any questions about this album! Happy Crafting!
