"First Day" Layout by Guest DT Karla

Hello! It’s Karla back today with another layout using the August One More Chapter collection! I’m so honoured to be Guest Designing for August and September and absolutely love the gorgeous papers and flair I’m using this month. For this layout I chose to focus on the images that worked with a school theme, since back to school is right around the corner for us, and has even started for some people. I’m totally enjoying the rest of our summer, but it was fun to scrap these photos of my daughter’s first day back last fall. 
I started with a sketch from Scrapbookin’ Adventures and cut out the pencil card from the cut apart sheet in the 12x12 paper pack. I cut it again horizontally so I could extend it behind the crumpled paper cardstock (which I love!) and used a notebook border punch along the top edge. 
I decided to stick to a fairly primary colour scheme and used watercolour pencils to add light colour to the neutral book paper from the One More Chapter 12x12 paper pack. It is thick enough that it took the watercolours beautifully! I grabbed a piece of ephemera from an older Tim Holtz pack and cut it horizontally after adding Distress Oxide Ink around the edges. I added it below and above the photo to look like it extended. The pencil and sentiments above the photo are cut from the branding strips on papers in the pack - I love the little goodies you’ll find on the Wild Whisper branding strips! I rounded the corners on the star card, which was cut out of the cut apart sheet, and punched a hole to create a tag. Some Stickles add coordinating sparkle inside the star shapes. 
I created a little ribbon badge by stitching on a circle of paper from the paper pack onto a scalloped circle and adding a cute pencil flair from the One More Chapter flair pack. I love the lined paper cardstock- perfect to journal directly on the  background! A bit of Tattered Angels Rose Gold Glimmer Mist, some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins  and some machine stitching finish off the page. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me share this fun scrapbook layout with you! Hope you have an awesome, crafty week!
