I used my Circle Stax 1 & 2 Die-namics to cut out and mat their sweet little faces. I always have a ton of extra wallet sized pictures. I guess kids don't pass those out anymore, or maybe it's just that they are boys. I remember not having enough wallet pictures to hand out to all my friends back in elementary school. Lucky for me, it gives me extra to play with on my scrapbook pages.
I then used the By the Numbers Die-namics and the coordinating stamp set to mark the appropriate grades for my two oldest boys. The lower case, By The Letter Die-namics was a great match in size and font for my youngest.
Following the sketch, I needed to fill that 4x6 space to the right. I didn't have a photo to add, so I made a cute embellie with LOTS of Die-namics. Still lovin' that Instaframe Die-namics. I cut it from Whip Cream cs.
I added a few fun stamps from Document it-Captured Memories. This is a MUST HAVE stamp set. I tucked in a sweet little Cute Cameras Die-namics, too.
In the background I used some Kraft cs and some For the Record Stamps to give it another layer. I stamped the notebook lines in Sno Cone ink and then gave it a Notebook Edge with the Die-namics.
I continued to accent that right long, panel with one of the Accent it-Story Starters Die-namics, which then was a natural lead in for my journaling. I cut it from some Lemon Drop cs, to match the designer papers I used.
A few other embellies to point out....those darling arrows. They are from the Lead the Way Die-namics. I followed the rule of thirds and added three to my page.
Also up in the upper left side, there's a fun label element from Accent it-Labels and Tabs. To carry the "school theme" throughout my page, I attached a few of the embellies with staples. Love the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher!
