Hi all I'm sharing a fun school themed layout for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. School themed anything is such a favorite of mine and some of the new PPPR files are just too perfect! Darling on their own or just perfect to mix with some of the older sets (like the addition of the pencil on the page today). And speaking of the pencil, when you use any design software to help you design and cut your images, remember to play around with not only the sizing but with altering the shape in general. For example, I wanted a thicker pencil to ground my bookworms so I simply pulled the thin pencil into a chubby one. Easy!
These wormies are the best, ever! And the addition of the glasses makes them just that much better (plus, how cute to have the "cheeks" within the glasses!) Both worms were cut on printed paper and to add a little dimension to the bows, the back layer was cut twice. Then to adhere, I added a strong liquid adhesive to the center of the bow and then trimmed super small pieces of foam tape next to the center. That allows the center to hold down but the ends to pop!
With so much fun detail (like the ruler background) I didn't need much else for details. So after adding some enamel dots and letter stickers for the title, I was pretty much done! Well, got to add photos but I really wanted to use current ones so we've got another week before school starts. Luckily.
