True to My School Cheerleading Layout

I'm back today with a new layout for Scrap it With a Song! The latest challenge is the song "Be True to Your School" by The Beach Boys.

This summer my best friend and I embarked on a new journey together as high school cheer coaches. She and I met 16 years ago when we made the cheer squad in high school. Now we are back coaching the same squad together. It has been exhausting but also so much fun!

I was inspired by the song title and slightly changed it to "True to our School" since we were cheerleaders 16 years ago and now back as coaches.

To check out this challenge and the other challenges for this month, please head over to the Scrap it With a Song blog. You could be next month's guest designer!

I'm also linking this project up to ScrapFit's Workout #76: navy, gray, and white. Coincidence that these are the school colors?

Thanks for reading!

Back to School Rolodex Mini-Album

Welcome back! Today I have my last back to school project. This time instead of a teacher gift I have a mini-album for proud parents to display their children's school pictures. I made the album using a Rolodex.

You can read more about how I made this and also see the supply list over on the Pages From the Heart blog.

A special thanks to my friend Jenny and her precious son Mason for letting me use their pictures! Thanks guys!

Back to School Post-It Note Holder

Hi there! I'm back with another back to school project that your favorite teacher would definitely appreciate. This project is featured this week on the Pages From the Heart blog as well. This month I was given the new Authentique "Curiosity" collection to work with.


I used a sign holder I found at an office supply store to make the holder. You can read more about how I made this as well as see the supply list by heading over to the Pages From the Heart blog.

Thanks for reading! I'll be back later this week with my last back to school project.

Back to School Teacher Gifts!

Happy September! I love summer and this past summer was an absolute blast. But I am looking forward to cooler evenings, beautiful fall colors, and the upcoming holidays. As a teacher myself, September also means back to work/school. This month I'll be sharing a few school-related projects that I have been working on for both Scrap it With a Song and Pages From the Heart. First up: SIWAS!

This month's first challenge over at Scrap it With a Song is the classic "Teach Your Children" by Crosby, Stills, and Nash. I took the song and used it as inspiration for a gift that would be perfect for a teacher at any time of the year. And could easily hold a Starbucks gift card. I'm just sayin' (wink, wink).

I made this altered paint can using Authentique's "Curiosity" collection. This is a fun school-themed collection using colors that are not typical of school themed-collections. I think that is what makes it so fun to work with!

Please check out how this song inspired the rest of the Scrap it With a Song design team. If you feel inspired then please join in on this month's challenge.

Happy back to school and for those of you who haven't started yet, I'm very jealous.
