Last Day of School!! ~ Teacher Scrapbooks

on May 24, 2013

If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen a couple photos having to do with teacher scrapbooks I’ve been working on this week. I’m finally ready to show them off! πŸ™‚


I’ve been planning on making each teacher a scrapbook all year long. I Finally took pictures of the class last week and I printed them off onΒ  Monday this week. I’ve been working on putting the pictures on cute paper and stamping names on the pages for the past 2 days!! I finally finished yesterday and I am here to show you the finished projects. I LOVE them!! They aren’t as FANCY as the scrapbooks I made last year. I did those ones on the computer so it was easier to make them look fancy. Paper scrapbooking is HARD compared to digital!! BUT, I was determined to do something different this year, since my 1st grader has the same teacher as my older boy had last year. I didn’t want her to get the same scrapbook with different picture. I’m a perfectionist like that. So, here you go:


I bought some cute We R memory keepers 4×6 journal cards at Target and used them because they were already decorated cute. All I had to do was glue on the picture!


Oh, I did use some of my new washi tape for this page because it was a little bland. Still easy peasy!


I used a friends stamps to embellish the top page a little bit.


And my cutie is on the bottom of the above picture πŸ™‚


We did a big class picture as well.


And at the end of the whole scrapbook I put in a little extra journal card for them to write down their favorite things about the year if they want.


So, that’s my first graders teacher scrapbook. I’m really emotional about not having a first grader anymore! I’ll miss the teacher! She has been a lot of fun to work with and get to know!


Now moving onto my 2nd graders teacher scrapbook. He has a HUGE class!! 28 kids!! So her book took a little bit longer to complete than Brynnan’s!




My cutie, Jonas, in the picture above.




Aren’t these journal cards just THE cutest?!! I have some left over so I can’t wait to use them!! IF I ever get around to scrapbooking! lol



I had FUN with the stamps my friend lent me! πŸ™‚




And that’s it! I’m going to put them into bags and write a nice Thank you note to them. My friend, Karlenn, has an Etsy shop where she sells her cards and she is SO amazing at it!! I LOVE her cards! I only buy them from her, never the store. NEVER again from the store!! πŸ™‚ Yes, that’s how good she is! And they’re the same price as buying them at the store! So, go over and visit Kar’s Kards today!!

Anyway, sorry for the detour there. I had to give a shout out to my bestie! πŸ™‚ I hope you’re having a great week! If your kids are still in school I hope all goes well with the last few weeks and if you want to do something like this for a teacher it’s really simple!! Just buy some journal cards like I did and slap in some pictures. If you don’t have a picture of each kid in the class you could scrapbook pictures from throughout the year if you went into the class to help out or something. I always have my phone with me to snap pictures every time I go in! Just in case! πŸ™‚

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday! Thanks for stopping by!!

    I’m so glad you had so much fun with my stamps! I really do like that set that you used for the kids’ names. I’ve used it a l.o.t. Do you need some thank you cards? Call me. I don’t have any specific thank-you cards right this second, but I do have several any-occasion spring cards still. Lovies. And thanks for the shout-out. You are the best.
