Hello First Grader!

Hello!! For some families it is already time to start the new school year. Such a fun time of year and one that I think we all agree is worth documenting! That first day of school definitely warrants lots of photos, jotting down some memories and recording it all in our albums! I love this page that Stephanie created of her little girl starting school last week. The photos are darling! Read on to see exactly how to create this adorable page!

Hey there!!  Stephanie back with you today to share a bittersweet page of my little girl!  Time sure does fly these days.  I know the “grown-ups” always said that when I was a little, but man, I didn’t believe it!!  Feels like just yesterday my daughter was starting to walk – now she’s a bonafide first grader!

To record her first day of school (she goes year round, so her first day was yesterday), I decided to snap a few photos of her and jot down her “currents” right now.  She’s such a trooper and loves having all of these pages about her!


I wanted this page to be photo heavy since I had so many fun shots of her, so I went with a 2×2 grid using four photos.  I cropped my photos into squares and then just printed them in various sizes for a little playfulness on the page.


I added in several paper layers from the Confetti 6×6 paper pad, as well as some tags and stickers underneath my photo to give some dimension and depth to the overall layout.  I love tucking in tags and hand-cut papers under my photos!


After my layers and photos were added, I typed up some “currents” about my sweet first grader – her best friend, what she wants to be when she grows up and her favorite subject.  I then added them alongside the photos to act as my journaling.


For the finishing touches, I added in some beautiful Confetti resin flowers and birds, and a few dimensional elements!


This is a new favorite page at our house!! Thanks so much for joining me today!

Happy Wednesday!
