Let's Learn! by Nathalie DeSousa

Hello there!
It's Nathalie with you today to share a new project featuring the beautiful SCHOOL LIFE collection. I am sure that school around your corner of the world looks a little bit different nowadays. However, I love to go back and look at the pictures of my kids on their first day of school. They were always so happy to start a new year, and the new Simple Stories collection is just perfect to document all sorts of school stories (even the new virtual ones!)


I just love how easy this page came together. My inspiration was all of the colorful rulers in the School Rocks paper. Once, the rulers were cut out, I decided to attach them to the background as if they were in a funky pile. The Making The Grade paper is perfect for the background of the page. I trimmed the background about 0.5" on each side, then framed the page with the Honor Rollin' paper.



The chipboard frames are always one of the first embellishments I reach for.  This time, the sentiment in the small frame was perfect for the picture. Once, I placed the photo on the background, it was all about embellishing. It was so easy and so much fun to just bring the Bits and Pieces, Stickers, and brads to create a cluster at the top of the frame, as if cascading from the top edge of the page.



One of the journaling spots had a small sentiment that read, " You Rule", which fits this page perfectly! So, I added it to the bottom of the picture and used a few more of the embellishments to create clusters at the bottom of the picture, too



The foam stickers in the SCHOOL LIFE collection are awesome; they created the perfect title for the page. I repeated a small grouping of embellishments next to the title to continue the look of the page, and give it a cohesive look!


This page was so fun to put together, took no time, and I just love all the colors, designs and dimension of the layout. I hope you check the new SCHOOL LIFE from Simple Stories at your closes scrapbook supplies store. You are going to love revisiting all your school adventures!
