Back To School Mini Scrapbook Page by Nina

 Hello Ai friends, Nina here with a new mini 6 X 6 scrapbook page. I was wishing to create a Back To School themed scrapbook layout so I did dig into my Art Impressions Stash and used all the sets that had school pencils, markers, pens and tools.

I found many.. so I used them all :)
They are Office Party Set, Craft Bag Set and Teachers Rule Set. Started off by stamping all my images using My Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and my Mini Misti and colored them using my Copic Markers.

Copic Shades:

Blues: B45 B32
Oranges: YR24 Yr04
Reds: R27 R29 R35
Green: YG17 YG23
Yellow: Y17 Y08
Greys: C0 C1 C2 C3 C4 C5

I then die cut my images, put them aside to start creating my scrapbook layout background.
I cut a piece of wood grain pattern paper into a little bigger than 5.5 X 5.5 Inch and used a back to school paper collection from my stash that had the perfect match of shades that I used with my Copic markers.

I cute red, yellow, blue and green strips and stacked them to the left and added a 2 strips of different blues horizontally near the bottom of the page.

I then printed this adorable picture of my kids on thier first day of school. After their first day of school they came to give me a flying kiss through the window of the passenger seat, I melted and took this memorable lovely photo 😍😍

I left a white margin when I was trimming the photo then backed it with a light blue scrap of paper to make it stand out against the busy background.

I attached my photo with double sided tape overlapping to strips on the left and above the horizontal ones. I then added this cute sticker strip of apples with thier lower edge on top of the horizontal blue strip and part of their tops laying on the photo of the kids to bring all the elements together.

I then started playing around with placing my Art Impressions stationery elements. I was aiming for a cluster coming out from underneath the lower right corner of my photo.

I placed the note pads, markers, scissors, glue, tape and ruler and finished off with the check mark and the A+ grade flying around the cluster.

I also placed my adorable pencil holder on the top of the photo aligned with one of the left strips.

I also added extra elements to complete my page; the Back to school sign with couple ribbons beneath and a cute school bus at the bottom and finish off with couple star stickers and enamel dots.
