Hey friends, Becki here, to share with you a layout I created during teacher appreciation week. You guys, it’s been a long time since I’ve written journaling that made my teary eyed, but this one did it! My little man went to kindergarten this year. Not only was it hard to send my baby to kindergarten but this has been a REALLY hard year for our family. Luckily, my little guy hit the kindergarten jackpot and got a teacher that is heaven sent. I am grateful for her every.single.day!
I started creating this layout with a few scraps from the Everyday collection and a piece of white cardstock. I find myself reaching for this collection so often that all I have left is scraps. Yes, I love it that much!
I arranged the scraps around the edge of the layout and stitched around the edge twice. I stitched around the edge for two reasons. One, to keep the scraps in place without using a TON of adhesive.
Two, by stitching around the edge twice it creates a bit of texture and interest on the perimeter of the layout.
After I stitched around the layout I curled the inside edge of a few of the scraps to give the layout a little bit more dimension.
The rest of this layout came together SO easily! I simply added the title (gold glitter Thickers and a vellum die cut), the journaling, and 4 small black and white photos.
I kept embellishments to a minimum on this layout, really, I added one paper clip. How’s that for keeping embellishment to a minimum.
And here’s the finished layout. It’s simple and tells such an important story. Have you created a layout about how much you appreciate your child’s teacher? Or how much you appreciate one of your teachers?
