Back to School with Briana Johnson

Today we have an amazingly creative and detailed two page back to school layout from Briana Johnson documenting her son's preparation for Kindergarten. Stay tuned! Later this week we'll be bringing you an equally amazing and creative alphabet project that Briana has created.

This is a page about a little refresher course we did on letters before Zane started kindergarten. I wanted to use the little boy rub on and somehow make letters floating around in his mind. I used my Silhouette for the letters cut then my scissors to cut the cut again : ), tracing the shape of his head with a pencil first. The gray ribbon is from the May kit, red striped ribbon is from Etsy. The smallest black buttons are vintage. I used some of Jenni’s small alphabet stickers on top of my buttons to make them look like brads. The large photo block is a Kerri Bradford template.

I made a pocket behind the photo block for the letters my son wrote that day.

I also misted black on black letters on the edges of my cardstock and then added black die cut letters as well for subtle texture – I thought the page was busy enough but wanted detail all the way to the edges.
