Back 2 School | Simple Stories

It was my turn on the Simple Stories blog yesterday and I just wanted to share my projects with you today.
I created 2 layouts using the OLD SCHOOL collection and this first layout is called Back 2 School.

Time for my niece to head off to grade 9. I still can't believe she's 14 and will probably be driving a card in 2 years. OYE!


This layout was created on a 12x12 piece of black cardstock and I wanted to had some white. Instead of using white as my base I layered it with a patterned paper and the black cardstock. I find it breaks it up as I used some neutral colors for my die cuts. I still added dimensional adhesive and created my layers.

 
I still have a few pieces of scrap paper left from this collection - enough to create a card or two for those teachers ;)

I hope you feel inspired to create today and perhaps we'll see your " Old School " layouts on social media! Tag us @SimpleStories_ and of course you can come follow me @KristineDavidson

  1. So many great things happening on this creation: the background combo - love the white on the pattern then on the black. Like the way you use strips to journal, simple but eye-catching. And the sewing .. just adds the final finished look. Real nice Kristine.
