I had a stamp camp where we made these 6x6 school albums. One side is for their school picture, the other is to write some memories from that year. It goes up to 8th grade, but I will add 9-12 onto mine at some point. We also made girl versions of this with the play house paper. I'll get scans of those up soon.
I got the idea for the album from someone on SUsisters (I am sorry I don't remember the name). But the page layouts and design of this album are all original by me.
Colors used throughout the book are Buckaroo Blue, Cranberry Crisp, More Mustard, Always Artichoke, True Thyme and Tree House Designer Paper. Modge Podge was used to adhere the paper to the book. On Simon Lower chipboard used for grades.
The album is from Jen Caputo Kits.
Thanks for looking! This stamp camp was a huge hit but it's a two-day event.

This is adorable. I did one of these after seeing the pattern on the fan club site. It was a huge hit with the kids and parents that I gave them to. I really wish this stuff was around when my girl was little (she's in college now). It would have been so fun to do this with her. If you ever post the other pages I would love to see them because I plan to keep doing them for the kids in the family. The two I did them for happen to be in kindegarten and first grade this year so it was a perfect start for them!!! Anyway, I love your work - Mary

I charged $35 for the camp which covered all the supplies, but I would probably charge $40 next time just because of the amount of work it was and it was tight with $35. I probably ended up spending money because of the ink and extra paper used.
But it was a good start - now they are addicted and want more albums done.:)

Absolutely brilliant! Not only is it really beautiful, it's practical as well. I chastise myself all the time for not keeping up with the school scrapping (or ANY scrapping for that matter...) but this I can do! With kids in K-4 and 1st grade, this is the perfect time for me to start with this.
