Tips From The Pros

Back To School

Tutorial created using Photoshop Elements 9.0 with Windows Vista

When I thought about back-to-school layouts, the first thing that came to my mind was scrapping photos of my kids on their first day of school in their new uniforms and backpacks, or doing a page about all the school supplies that need to be purchased at this time of year. As darling and wonderful as these layouts are, I knew I wanted to try something different in documenting those school memories for my children to enjoy.

So as I sat down to brainstorm what my children might want to remember in the years to come, it struck me. Why not create a page (or pages) of the school itself, like the little everyday details? For example, the front of the school building, the playground the kids enjoy every day, the mailbox where I meet them after the school day is finished, their desk or the school's front desk, the teacher's bulletin board, the library, the cafeteria, etc. – these are things easily overlooked because they are so common. I wanted to capture the little stuff my kids see and are around daily at this time in their life, because pretty soon they will grow up and move on. I hope the everyday pictures will bring back happy memories of their brief moments in time as grade-schoolers.

For my layout, I decided to use Ang Campbell's ScrapSimple Digital Layout Templates: Lots of Shots 2 because I had a lot of photos I wanted to preserve. I picked a school-themed collection from the Boutique which helped aid the overall emotion I was going for. Then I chose papers and embellishments from that collection that reflected my children's elementary school colors, blue and yellow. And when I came across an embellishment I loved, but didn't fit my color scheme, I recolored it using the Hue/Saturation dialog box.

When I created this layout, the school was closed for the summer, so I was only able to capture outside memories. Once the school is open again in the fall, I hope to be able to take pictures of some of the rooms inside and create a second page to go beside my first layout.

Now it's your turn! I challenge you to think outside the normal back-to-school layout theme. Focus on a memory you want to preserve for your children when they are older. Think about what kinds of photos you wish you had from your own school years. I look forward to seeing the Scrap Girls Gallery filled with school-themed pages!

Just send in your BINGO card at any time during the month, and you'll be eligible to begin playing when the next new round starts.
