We hope you've been enjoying all of the project inspiration we've shared over the last two weeks! We're not done yet though! All this week, we will continue to provide you with endless inspiration with never-before-seen projects that were featured in our CHA Winter booth display. Our Design Team has been very busy creating oodles of project ideas with all of the new collections and products, and we are excited to finally share them with you!
“Student of the Month”, by Katie Rose.
I knew I wanted to highlight just one photo on this layout so I paired it with one of the journaling cards on the Daily Details patterned paper. Below that I added several strips from the Borders patterned paper. To finish it off I added lots of chipboard and some journaling.

“School Time”, by Lisa Dickinson.
A grid of circles was a great way to showcase some of the cute embellishments in the Star Student collection. I layered punched papers with chipboard, stickers, Felt Bows, and other fun pieces. To keep my circles from looking like they were floating on the background, I layered a strip of Clear Cuts behind the grid and stitched it in place.

“Preschool Besties”, by Becki Adams.
The Star Student collection is perfect for Middle School and High School Students but it’s also great for documenting memories of kids in Preschool and Elementary School. I wanted to tell the story of how these two kiddos are best friends in Preschool. The Star Student collection worked perfectly. I love the International Studies patterned paper. It makes a perfect background to document all school memories.

“Dedicated Teacher” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
The new Star Student collection is probably my favorite out of all the new collections! I have three kids in school and it seems that I am always in need of cards for one of their teachers, so that is one of the first projects I made. I used two one of the patterned papers for the background and then layered on one of the Daily Details trimmed down a little. The alphabet stickers are from the Treasures & Text sheet and the other stickers are from the coordinating Star Student Trinkets. I added some of the new McIntosh Enamel Dots and a star from the Oreo Black Enamel DooDads.

“Star Student” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
One of my favorite things about the new Star Student collection is that it can be used for younger students (Elementary aged) as well as older ones! For this card, I started with some polka dot paper (the back side of the Art Journal sheet). I layered on a slightly smaller piece of the Art Journal Clear Cut paper. I wanted it to look like it was floating on top of it so I only used adhesive under the black star paper. For the focal image, I created an award ribbon with a star chipboard piece, punched out circles, and some black ribbon.

Star Student Tag Book, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I wanted to create a little fold out card that contained several tags. I thought that the tags could be used for bookmarks. I started by adhering two pieces of black cardstock together. I created pockets by stitching on pieces of Typewriter Clear Cut paper. With so many coordinating Star Student products available, embellishing was super easy! I also added some Enamel Dots for embellishment.
