Kickin' It Old School

Kickin' It Old School

Hello Friends! It's Kristine Davidson here today ;) I am here to share 2 layouts using the NEW simple set OLD SCHOOL. It was perfect for a few recent photos of my niece and nephew. Getting back to school is such a big event. I remember those new school supplies. I loved them!  
This first layout is called Grow Learn Discover. 

I used the 4x6 journal element and cut it up to create my title. No hard decisions or doubts about a title. Nice and Easy! The one thing I really don't fuss over too much is a title. I usually find inspiration from a sticker or diecut from the kit. This was no exception. 

As you can see from the element sheet - I cut out the clock, Used a 3x4 card to add details to my page. This is a simple set collection and you get 2 sheets of 3 papers and a sticker sheet. So you make the kit last by using some elements from one single sheet! GENIUS! Not really, but it does help add details to your layout ;) 
My second 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 car 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 
Thanks everyone!
