First Class


We ordered some school photos of The Boy - naturally; we had to mark his first school photo at secondary school! But also, they turned out rather well :) With the pack we chose we got a sheet of 'photo postage stamps'. A nice idea, but it's not as if they're pre-paid postage, and I can't imagine using them on anyone's envelope when we don't have an equivalent of The Tomboy. (Neither can I imagine having the time to make a set with a pic of The Tomboy, though the idea did occur to me!) So I figured I could use them on a layout instead :)

Squares punched from Pink Paislee papers, white cardstock trimmed with deckle-edge scissors, kraft cardstock because it reminds me of a brown envelope, Pink Paislee journaling card, the return of the Thickers...

The journaling card paperclipped behind the sheet of photos pulls out to show a few details - name of school, date he started, name of form tutor, etc.

Very clever! and a great idea ... I'd have been tempted to keep a few for 'mail art'!

that is a good idea, it's not always easy to use up little photos and this works so well with the stamp shaped pattern paper reflecting the stamp idea as does the title xxx

Brilliant Mel! Love it.

That looks great! Wait til he is a bit bigger and then you'll be able to tease him that he will have them handy to hand out to his admirers. That's what we do hehe

This is a brilliant idea, Mel. The square grid behind the photo stamps is so clever, and I love the looks of those tiny photos of The Boy on top. Awesome! :o)
