Hey Little Magpie Blog

Apples, pencils and rules

Hi Everyone!

It’s Agnieszka here today. It’s almost the end of the school year so I decided to make some school projects featuring Studio Calico Seven Papers – Darcy collection.

I found some photos from my son’s last day in preschool and I decided to make some crazy and colorful layout. As a background I used Studio Calico Seven Paper – Darcy – #9 Green Trapezoids/Number Circles which suits my son’s shorts perfectly.

DSC_5618To add more colors to my page I used few pocket pages cards from Me & My Big Ideas Pocket Pages Cards – School. I also made 2 rosettes from white cardstock and I embellish them with fantastic Me & My Big Ideas – Chipboard Value Pack Stickers – I Love School.


I used here gorgeous Hey Little Magpie – Flair Badge. Look how cute they look!!!



My next layout is very crazy. On the photo is my son again doing his homework. I have to say in the beginning of school doing homework it was horror for us. Sometimes it took 1,5 ha to do only 3 exercises. This is what I wanted to show on my layout – chaos and confusion.


That’s why I made some splashes, I used Freckled Fawn – Wood Chips – Alphabet and cut out pencils from Pocket Pages Cards and generally made totally mess. Happily now it’s much better he is even able to do his homework by himself.


When I saw this Studio Calico Seven Paper – Darcy – #8 Handwritten Alphabet/Scribble paper for the first time I knew it has to be something very teenager. I ask my best friend’s daughter… well she’s almost like my daughter for some photo and I made this layout.


Because I have plenty of Pocket Pages Cards left I made set of 2 cards for Alex teachers.


On one of them I used Freckled Fawn – Wood Chips – Large Numbers. I made some splashes and rosettesagain. And my favor apple chipboards from Me & My Big Ideas – Chipboard Value Pack Stickers – I Love School.


The idea of second card is blackboard with words Thank you. The main embellishment is paper bow and apple again.
