Preserving the Best of Your Child’s School Years

You've Got Class #closetomyheart #CTMH #you'vegotclass #ctmhyou'vegotclass #backtoschool #memorykeeping #organizing #organising #school #schoolpicture #schoolmemento #schoolkeepsake #schoolalbum #backtoschoolSummer adventures are coming to a close as school bells begin to ring, generating much excitement and anticipation for a new academic year. We’ve prepared our children’s wardrobes, collected supplies, and arranged for healthy lunches in hopes of ensuring as much success as can be planned for. Just as we’re about to send these kiddos into the seemingly unknown, we prop them in our porches, getting on a school bus, or standing with their teacher and make them smile for the camera. Click!

And they’re off! School is back in session. Before you know it, you’re knee deep in artwork, certificates of excellence, report cards, and all kinds of treasures that you just don’t know what to do with. You most certainly don’t need to keep everything your child scribbles on, but there are and will be some things that you will cherish and value for a long time, if not forever. This happens year, after year, after year.

Because we are committed to memory keeping, we had to come up with a system that works to preserve these wonderful and prized memories. With some thoughtful consideration, we were able to put together a project that comes together quickly and easily to create a scrapbook album for all of these formative school years. Dear non-scrapbooker reading this post, please hear us out for a sec. before you assume this no longer applies to you. 😉

With the materials and instructions included in the You’ve Got Class workshop kit you create an entire album with one page for each school year. What makes this workshop unique to other scrapbooking workshops are our True Fit Folios. True Fit Folios are white cardstock folders that fit perfectly inside 12″ x 12″ Memory Protectors™. The workshop is designed so that each scrapbook page is assembled on a side of one of the folders. After you complete all of your pages, or folder sides, you insert them into the Memory Protectors™ inside an album. With this completed album, you are all set and ready to start adding your keepsakes and mementos inside the pockets, where they will be securely and safely stored for years to come!

If you’ve got any kids in your life—children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends, neighbors—this workshop is for you. Even if these “kids” are old and grown, chances are their school day relics are collecting dust “in a box somewhere.” (Well-preserved memories make a wonderful gift!)

If you’ve been looking for a way to store school memories with easy access, this is it. If scrapbooking is “not your thing,” this is the time to reconsider, even if it’s just this once. You want this album on your shelf, and so do your kids—cross our hearts!

And for those of us who are constantly click, click, clicking with our cameras, there are likely a few additional photos to include on the folio pages. We thought of that, too!

The You’ve Got Class workshop kit includes Flip Flaps™ so that more photos, journaling, or keepsakes can be added anywhere on a page without taking up additional room. Yep—they’re like magic! 🙂

Making Impressions

We know it’s the little things, like cards, that make all the difference in the world, and often it’s the little things that make your cards exactly the way you want. Take embossing folders for example.

Embossing folders are a great way to personalize your cards #ctmh #closetomyheart #cardmaking #cards #embossing #embossingfolder

Embossing folders are a great essential for cardmakers because they transform a regular piece of cardstock into something truly unique. You basically get to create your own patterned papers by mixing and matching colors and folders.

Because you give cards for all sorts of different occasions, you need a variety of embossing folders so you can get just the right look for each and every card.

For all you scrapbookers out there, embossing folders are also great for easy layering. Arrange a few pieces of embossed paper behind a photo for a quick, effortless pattern.

Also, don’t be afraid to emboss plain white cardstock. With some texture, it takes on a life all its own!

Cardmaking and scrapbooking are both all about celebrating and strengthening relationships. With our latest embossing folders, you’ll be able to show a little bit more tender love and care to your artwork and to your loved ones.
