Hello everyone!! Continuing on with this week's theme of children's books, I have a layout to share about how my son's current fave helped him at school :) In addition to the theme this week, I decided to challenge myself even more by limiting myself to using only paper - yep, you heard me right, just paper!! No pre-made bulky embellishments or tags or enamel dots or buttons. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE all those things, but I decided to use only the Miss Nelson main kit papers and see what I could come up with. I did throw in a bit of stitching and of course tools from my stash to help me out :)
In the white space, I decided to use my Silhouette and cut multiple arrows in white. I layered the tone on tone and stitched across the rows. The word bubble you see is cut from one of the patterned papers. I then used my Silhouette to cut the arrow circle. I typed "the story" on white cardstock & then cut the ends to resemble a mini banner.
The aqua file folder opens up to display my journaling. The small arrow you see at the bottom is cut from one of the patterned papers.
For the title, I cut out the "on being the new kid" with my Silhouette and then backed it with black cardstock. Above the title I have a border strip stating "today" multiple times. This was cut with my Silhouette as well, and then stitched down.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Feel free to upload your own children's book themed layouts to our Facebook page!! We'd love to see what you come up with :)
