Back to School Scrapbook Page with the Dial Trimmer

Good morning, We R Memory Keeper’s friends, Laura here today. My kids just started back to school and I wanted to scrapbook a page to remember their first day and getting on the bus. I love the Oh Happy Life papers from Amy Tangerine and they worked perfect for this occasion.

I started by using a background paper with different multi colored hearts on it. I found a fun paper that had patterned strips on it, one of which had a little some little buses on it. It was perfect for this layout. I used my Dial Trimmer to cut the paper into strips. I ended up using five strips from the same paper.

I wanted to create a scallop border on the top and bottom strips of the Oh Happy Life paper, rather than just having a plain flat border. Using the dial trimmer made creating a scalloped edge easy.

Since the page was already so busy, I wanted solid color mats for all of my photos. To make the ones with the grade levels on them stand out, I used yellow cardstock and the Dial Trimmer to scallop all the edges.

For the other smaller pictures I used white to mat each photo. Only one photo is in color to show their first day of school outfits. To finish off the page, I added gold sparkly Thickers to spell out Back to School 2017.

I also added some beautiful layered paper stickers throughout the layout to add some dimension to the page.

I love that I was able to trim all my pictures, strips of paper, and even scallop the edges of my paper with one tool. It made this layout come together really quickly.
