It's back to school day for us! I cannot believe how fast this summer flew by --so sad to see it end! But so happy that the kids are ready to go back to school.

While the kids are away, my goal is to play...a little bit each day. This is something that I do each year for the kids schoolwork, that I intend to keep, to showcase in their school scrapbook albums. It is a pocket that I created using the Cricut and my favorite "school" font, Mickey Font. I cut out the word schoolwork and use the negative as the pocket, placing a coordinating color behind the negative to show through. Then I use tacky tape to hold the pocket onto the background paper. I usually only put about 10 of my favorite worksheets for the year in here.

I'm submitting this page for the Cricut 360 --Back to school challenge. Check out the great website here

Thanks for stopping!

  1. What a great idea!!! I saved some of my kids projects too...they are in college now and it is fun to bring them out! Thx for joining us over at cricut 360!

  2. Very clever ... this is a great idea. And I love that you used the negative of your cut.

    Thanks for joining us at Cricut 360° … hope to see you next week, too!
