Starting Monday, you can add grades of greatness to your academic layouts with Back To School! This collection comes filled with back-to-school cool, from pre-K to high school in a bright scholastic palette. You'll love it for photos of the first day of school, picture day, field trips, choir and band concerts, graduation, sports and other extracurricular activities.

Look at the colors that coordinate and other collections with the same color palettes!

The Back To School Album Cover is made of ebony bookcloth material and features a marbled composition notebook design in white matte foil.

The Back To School Paper Pack and Building Blocks Paper Pack will give your academic memories an A+ backdrop. Let's take a closer look!

The Back To School Paper Pack (12/pk) features patterns of school supplies (think crayons, glue and scissors), iconic yellow school buses, thought bubbles, chalkboard art of grad caps and diplomas and music notes, plus a composition notebook, lined paper and ruler designs.

Construct school memories atop the Building Blocks Paper Pack (6/pk), which includes designs infused with multi-hued tessellated blocks, blueprint 3D blocks and toy mini-figures.

Showcase special moments from pre-K to senior year with the Back To School Annual Paper Pack and Primary Foiled Memory Tabs. Take a look below!

The Back To School Annual Paper Pack (14/pk) will help you keep track of the school years that fly by! The front side of each sheet features a lined notebook page design with a manila file folder and a paper clip at the bottom with grade levels from preschool to senior. The reverse side of each page has general- and school-themed designs.

And even though you get two additional sheets in this pack, it's perfectly priced at $10 like regular CM paper packs (12/pk).

The Primary Foiled Memory Tabs (NEW to CM) will make it easy to label special places in your albums! Simply write on the label, peel the adhesive backing and fold over the page or Peekaboo Pocket™ to adhere for easy-to-find album access.

And with their patterns like marbled composition notebook, stars, polka dots and stripes — all of which are accented with silver foil around the white tab area to write on — they'll be a trendy way to organize your album.

Get an A+ for creativity with the Back To School Mats and Embellishments.

The Back To School Variety Mat Pack is infused with designs of various notebook papers, a composition notebook cover, a chalkboard, the alphabet, thought bubbles, stars and pencils, as well as phrases like "Time to study" and spaces to journal.

The Back To School Embellishments have icons like a calculator and pencils, a classic yellow school bus, a music stand, backpack and gym bag, sneakers, lockers, a lunch tray and phrases such as "Classmates," "I love school" and "Back to the books."

Introducing NEW Back To School XL Layered Frame Embellishments! Available in three unique designs — Scallop Frame, Ruler Frame and File Folder Frame — and sold individually (1/pk for $5 each), these embellishments come ready to just add a 4x6 photo and adhere to a page!

You'll love them for first-day-of-school photos, picture day portraits and other academic memories!

The Back To School Stickers bring icons like a school bus, backpack, various school supplies, paper airplanes and books with a cute bookworm wearing glasses, as well as phrases like "Smarty-pants" and "Star student" and complementing borders.

You can add captions and headlines to your layouts with the Black Collegiate ABC/123 Letter Stickers, which include upper and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols in a classic black collegiate school font.

If you want to get all these Back To School decorative products in one easy click, you'll want the Back To School Decorative Bundle. It includes the three paper packs, mat pack, both sticker packs, embellishments, the three NEW XL layered frame embellishments and NEW foiled memory tabs.

Scribe with style with the Back To School ABC Handwriting Stencil and five NEW shades of Dual-Tip Pens — Rosey Red, Pure Blue, Pure Orange, Spring Green and Orchid Purple!

The letter stencil allows you to create your own titles by tracing the letters, numbers, punctuation and symbols, and all four sides of the stencil have ruler lines to ensure you have straight titles every time!

Tip: For a crisp result, trace the outline of each letter with the fine tip of a Dual-Tip pen first, followed by filling in with the wider tip.

The Home Sweet Home BMC adds a dose of comforting feels with its home borders — one house with a chimney and four windows and the other with a heart design. It's perfect for layouts of staycations and at-home adventures, homeschooling, buying your first home and neighborhood get-togethers.
