Scrapbook Layout created for Simple Stories  - HOMEWORK -

Hello Friends!

I am so excited to share with you my first assignment as part of the Simple Stories 2017 Design Team.  All the glory be to God, who has blessed me with this opportunity!!

The first layout is all about that dreaded word, "Homework".   The new Domestic Bliss collection, with its vibrant colors, playful papers, and cute embellishments was ideal to bring some cheeriness to the not so happy image homework conveys.

I wanted to bring in as many patterns and colors from the collection into this layout, so I set out to create a large background for this page.   The Open Alpha cut file from the Cut Shoppe -which forms the word 'Homework'- was welded to a simple house outline to create the background.

The new 6x8in paper pads are perfect to back cut-outs, as they contain all the patterns included in the collection, and it saves from cutting a small piece from a sheet of paper.   Don't you just love all the colors and patterns in this collection?

The outline of the house was cut from the  wood grain pattern of the "Bless This Mess" paper.   A bit of foam adhesive was used to secure the cut out to the outline thus creating some dimension on the page.  The background was then glued to the B side of the "Hickory Grid" paper from the Sn@p Basics collection,

A picture of my husband and daughter working on a school project was glued on a slant  to the "roof of the house".   I used  some of the cut-apart cards from the 4x6 Double Sided paper, and 6x8 paper pad as layers behind the picture.   Some of the stickers, die cut pieces, and  a paper clip from the collection were used to create clusters that frame the picture.  I love the small camera piece!!

To balance the page, one small cluster of paper die cuts, and stickers from both the 12x12  card stock sticker combo, and the 4x6 sticker sheets was added to the bottom right corner of the house.   Just a few enamel dots, and some journal lines complete this page.   I love how the colors and fun embellishments bring happiness to "Homework"

I really hope you enjoy the project!  Please remember i am available to answer any questions you might have on how this came together

Thanks for stopping by!
