New School Days Min Kit , Templates, Freebie

New in the shoppe today at CatScrap is my Road To Success Mini Kit.   A little touch of grunge, a little touch of simple, a little touch of vintage, and a little touch of fun all put together in this mini school kit.

Create lasting school memories with these fill in the blank Road to Success Road Maps in 12 x 12  and 8.5 by 11 size.   Or create a memorable Hybrid Project with your child's own handwriting by printing the .pdf's text files included with the road maps and layering with pre-printed scrapbook paper.  Also included is a template to create a pocket page (with instructions) for holding awards, report cards, and more


Templates come in psd, tiff, and separate png files.  Text also comes in png overlays and pdf's for printing.  The overlays and pdf files are sized to print on 8.5 x 11 paper you can layer with a 12 x 12 layout.

And for the next few days, you can get the kit and templates for 20% off.

I have a now 18 year old Senior in High School and a 12 year old 6th grader.  Ever since my oldest started preschool, I have been keeping a school days scrapbook of each year with all the details of her teachers, friends, favorites, and more.  I would print the fill-in the blank text pdf files onto a pre-printed 8.5 x 11 sheet of scrapbook paper from my local store.  I then bundled them together in a 3 ring binder.  Over the years, this collection has turned into a massive scrapbook of personal handwritten memories I truly cherish and I know one day so will my daughter.  This is her last year before starting college and the one binder I started 12 years ago has now turned into 3.


 Once my youngest started school, I began printing these for him too.  Here are several hybrid pages from his books.  I really enjoy the personalized handwriten layouts more.  For his first couple of years in school, I would ask him the questions and write them down for him.  I would have him write only his signature.  After about 3rd grade, I started making him do all the writing.  With the hybird layouts, it shows not only his change of favorites over the years, but also the maturity of his signature and handwriting. 

There is even a pocket page for each year, I created to hold report cards, awards, and teachers notes.


Here are some digital examples using products from my Road To Success Mini Kit.  This is also a great example of how you can use the 8.5 by 11 pdf files or overlays and layer on a 12 x 12 page.




And a freebie you can download HERE to help you get motivated with your project.  I created this last year and posting again for those of you who may not have had a chance to snag it:

This Word Art is actually a template.  Each color comes as a separate layer to customize with any papers.

An oldie but goodie I made last year.  You can pick up the full Road to Success Word Art in my shop.  Elements shown are included.

I hope you are inspired to start your school days album.  It truly is worth doing.
