25 Days of Christmas - Day 14

Welcome to day 14. We are the downhill side of 25 days of fun! Today we are focusing on "Back to school". It's hard for me to think of the next school year when we are still firmly in the throws of this one. New years are always exciting, though, because of all of the unknown factors. 

 I made this little album with more of an elementary school level in mind. It would work for a student, but I had in mind more of a class record/album. The apple and sentiment were both cut from the Makin' the Grade Cricut cartridge. The sentiment was cut at 4", the apple at 4 1/4". I have a Yourstory personal bookbinder and used it for the first time on this project. There are several pages in here that could hold pictures for different holidays or themes/units the class does in a year. I thought the teacher could put in a picture from the beginning of the year and one from the end so the students could see how they'd grown as a class over the year. It could also hold data of their heights and they could use it as an ongoing math lesson throughout the year (can you guess what I teach?). The project went together really quickly and I'm please with the way the book turned out.

I hope everyone has a great day! See you on day 17....


  1. Such a wonderful album! I am sure it will be received with great appreciation!

  2. I am so loving this mini album! It is a great idea for the classroom and I love your idea of keeping the heights of the children and using it to do math-all wonderful idea!!

  3. Very cute the camera cut!
