School is cool - Chipboard focus - Emilie Chamel

Hello friends! Emilie here for another week of School is cool! As you might know from my last post, I like to take a "First day at school" photo and I also love to scrapbook it too! I love those new pictures so much that I wanted to use them again on another layout, especially when I still have on my desk this fantastic new collection by Bella BLVD.




I love this striking black and white patterned paper. I knew I wanted to use it as a background, and it definitely drove my idea to print my photos in black and white.




I don't know why, but I have a thing for apples on patterned paper... And this one is no different so I knew I would have to use it. This drove my second design decision: I knew I would go towards a very black and red layout.




I matted my photographs onto the red patterned paper and chose the red and whitewash tape to run down behind my pictures. Another strip of the apple paper helped to balance my layout and repeat this element.


As our assignment was to focus on the chipboards, I raided them to find as many elements which I felt would work best with my design. I felt that at this point bringing other primary colors would work very well so the title was chosen as well as the crayons and flowers.


A last few details such as a school building as well as the super cute converses finished off my design.

I hope that you got a few ideas on how to use the School Is Cool collection and that you will check it out at your local scrapbooking stores!

Lots of love,
