Looking for some ideas on how to document those days staying at home? Today I'll be sharing a fun layout I created to document the "school at home" situation during the quarantine using the School Days Collection.
To create my layout, I started by making some school supplies out of paper. I made two pencils and one paintbrush using Doodlebug's textured and Sugar Coated cardstock. I drew and cut each one of the pieces to build the elements I mentioned before, then put them together and adhered them to a sheet white cardstock. Next with the help of my Craft Pick, I punched holes around the elements and added hand-stitching with color coordinating thread.
Once I finished making the handmade school supplies, I pulled out all the embellishments from the School Days collection and put them over my desk. Then I selected the ones that coordinated with my photo and the story I wanted to tell and saved the rest for a future project. Next, I positioned the embellishments and the two pencils and paintbrush creating and "L" shape design.
Following this, I put my photo, title, and journaling at the top right side of the page. For the title, I used the word "school" from the Chit ChatTM Set and added "at home" with the Teensy Type Beetle Cardstock Stickers in black.

Last but not least, I added some shape sprinklesTM from the School Days collection around the page as well as some word stickers from the This&That 12 x 12 sticker sheet.

Now let's take a look at the finished layout.

That is it for today! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and liked the ideas I shared. Also, don’t forget that if you have any questions just leave a comment below or send me an email.
