I started this layout by pulling out a sheet of smooth white cardstock by Park Lane. I grabbed my school supplies stash and an apple cutfile from my Cricut Library and cut a bunch of apple shapes in black cardstock to start my apples. I then peeled the backing off two sheets of easy cut adhesive and placed it onto smooth white cardstock. I then cut the red and green layers of my apple out of the cardstock backed adhesive. Once those were cut, I pulled them off my cutting mat and peeled the other backing piece off each one to stick down to my coordinating Gina K Fancy Foil sheets. I then ran those through my hot laminator, sandwiched between a craft and carrier sheet.

I then began working on placing my apples down on my page, scattering them in a vertical design. I marked out a three light pencil lines down my page and placed the apples down with my Memory XL Tape Runner. I then poked holes down all the vertical lines and did some hand stitching with some black bakers twine.

Next, I added some stamping with a few stamps from my stash in coordinating distress oxide colors. I scattered those as well but kept them close to my vertical lines.

I matted my photos with a patterned paper from the School is Cool collection by Bella Blvd and my tabbed folder die by Elle’s Studio. I adhered those layers together and to the page with my Easy Tear Tape in ½” size. I then stamped my date next to my photo using my Paige Evans roller date stamp and Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink.

I added my title with Bella Florence Alphas and a chipboard apple from the Bella collection. I continued adding embellishments from my stash using the UltraBond Liquid Adhesive, which dries clear! I popped up a few embellishments with some Gina K Foam squares as well.

I finished it off by adding a bunch of sequins from the {Not} Just for Boys Kit Club and my UltraBond Liquid Adhesive and then I also used a tablet style border punch down the side, and backed that with some black cardstock to make it look really “schooly!” I added a couple stickers and my journaling down the side and this one is done!
