SOPHOMORE LAYOUT

Here is a photo of the entire layout. I see so many layouts out there for elementary aged school students. It seems a bit harder to find layouts and ideas for our “older” school-aged kids. So I purposely made this layout with my daughter who is a sophomore this year in mind.

Techniques & Tips
I used the Miss Morgan 400 paper to cut out the “Scatter Joy” strip and the “Spread Your Wings”.. quotes. I also cut out the Memories to place inside the book bag.

Techniques & Tips
I used the Midnight Confessions and Mocha Mama powder puff chalk inks to ink around the edges of the “green-aqua” side of the box. I also used a q-tip to “draw” the vein of the leaf in with the same chalk ink.

Here are the products that I used to create the Apple Box Project:
