It is no doubt that getting your kids exited about going back to school takes some creativity. So in our house, I do something unique to get my boys excited about school. Today, I am sharing a back-to-school-themed scrapbook layout that showcases one of our fun family traditions. And being part of the @XyronInc Makers Team allows me to show you how YOU too can create fun and beautiful scrapbook pages using the Xyron Creative Station Lite and the Xyron Mega Runner. It's easy! #Xyron #XyronMaker #craftoclock #creekbankcreations #sandpaperroad #scrapbooking #backtoschool #schoolsupplies #scrapbooklayouts

It scores and cuts cardstock in one swipe to make the perfect fold-out card. AND, it fits inside an A2-sized envelope! #creekbankcreations #sandpaperroad #gatefoldcard
I love that this card isn't made to have a feminine or a masculine feel. It is just a "LOVE" card, plain and simple. For this project, I am using the Creek Bank Creations Gift Card Pop-Up Die Set and Poppin' Up stamp sentiments. And this pop-up card is EASY to make, even for the beginner!
When I sit down to make cards or scrapbook layouts, it is as EASY as pie because I do all my creative thought about color and size beforehand!
