Our Back To School Week sort of spilled over into this week a little bit, didn't it? We've already seen a few of you sharing your layouts on our Facebook page, from Sheri's "First Day of School" challenge she gave you yesterday. It's always fun to see some of you playing along with us! Today, we have some more layouts to share with you, featuring the Midterm collection. Except this time, they're not layouts about school. We wanted to show you how this collection can be used for lots of different types of layouts, and not just the theme the products were created for.
"I Chat", by Tanisha Long.
I joined my first online scrapbooking community in 2006, 2 years after I started scrapbooking. Since then, social media has become an important of my day. I have developed wonderful relationships with people from all around the world who share the same passion as me. This layout serves to highlight my feelings about them, which is "online friends ROCK"!!
Since this layout is about chatting online, I chose to highlight 2 papers to help draw the point home, Steve's Keys and Text Me. The "hanging with my peeps" block from the borders and blocks paper was the perfect addition for the journaling! I ran out of chipboard Cs, so I used the negative space to complete my title. I cut the negative space "c" into a circle and sanded the edges for a more uniform look.

"Blog Blog", by Michelle Clement.
I was really inspired by the keyboard paper and laptop cut-out in the Midterm collection, for this page. I liked that the collection seemed like I could use it for more than just the 'school days' it was designed with, in mind. The computer-inspired patterned paper reminded me of my computer, which made me think of blogging. I ended up thinking about the last few years of blogging and how they've pushed my art and my scrapbooking to a new level, with so much positive reinforcement and inspiration out there on the web. I wanted to document that little thought, and some of the bright photos I take for my blog, now - which represent that growth, because I've learned so much about photography in the last year alone online!
Tip: Water down acrylic paint in a plastic container instead of using it straight from the tube - a few drops of water make it go onto the paper smoothly and dry faster.
