old school meets santorini
I am thrilled today to be sharing my first project with the new Old School collection. The colors and patterns are just so inspiring to me. I love bold and bright so Old School suits my scrapping style perfectly. I knew I wanted to team the collection with my photos of Santorini which we took last year. Let me take you along on our journey.
The ombre blue pattern paper called Summerland was my starting place for my pocket page. I trimmed the pattern paper to 4 x 6 to create my title block and added the new Iridescent thickers from the collection and then stamped with the new letter stamps from the Clear Acrylic Letter Stamps to create my title. I used the Enjoy the Now stamp from the Clear Acrylic Icons Stamp set on one of the label stickers which I backed with pattern paper and popped it into the pocket.
I also trimmed that Making Waves pattern paper to 3 x 4 why reminded me of the sea, it fit perfectly with my Santorini theme.
On my large photo I added that shine on piece from the Old School Ephemera pack and added a sticker from the sticker sheet underneath.
I then trimmed out that stunning City Grid pattern paper to fit onto the back of my photo to serve also as a holding place for my journaling.
I ran that card from the Tag Set through my type writer for my journaling and then adhered it to the pattern paper and then stitched around it with some gold thread.
To add a bit of interest to my pages I printed off one of my photos onto vellum and slipped it into a pocket.
Another pocket page holds more photos and another 3×4 piece of the Making Waves pattern paper. I added one of the Definition stickers to the 3×4 piece and added more stickers from the collection over my photos.
To complete my pocket page I added another piece of the City Grid pattern paper and added that Smile today piece of ephemera that I popped up on pop dots.
The Old School collection really is the perfect mix of vivid pattern and bold colors. I cannot wait to create my next project with it.
