This month my daughter headed off to Grade 8. Rather a big deal! She played it cool (even though Mama here knows otherwise. :))
This month Simple Stories has teamed up with Kiwi Lane Designs and we got some super fun templates to work with. I received three different sets (Tiny Brackets Accessory, Journey Accesory, and Sunnybrook Lane). These are super fun templates and I wanted to incorporate one template from each of these collections on to my layout.
I used the Smarty Pants collection to create my page. There's so many great colors and designs in this collection. I love it!
The middle section of my layout I used the long & curvy templates from Sunnybrook Lane and traced them onto some navy patterned paper. I then outline the edges in a white gel pen.
The title 'spot' I used a template from the Journey accesory collection, tracing it onto some green patterned paper and then adhering some letter stickers to create my title & some chipboard stars & a brad/pencil embellishment. I adhere that to my layout using some foam squares.
I added some stickers & chipboard embellishments in various places throughout my layout.
On the lower right corner and upper left corner of my layout I used a bracket shaped template from the Tiny Brackets accesory kit.
I first traced the template onto the red patterned paper. (TIP: When tracing templates like these it's often a good idea to flip the template over and then trace the image on the backside of the paper you are planning to use. That way the pencil/pen lines will not show.) Here I wanted the red speckled-like paper to be on the top so I traced the template on the 'lined' side.
Thanks for stopping by.
