Simple Stories - Say Cheese - The Scrapbook Store

 Hey again ☺  This month I have the wonderful task of creating with 'Say Cheese' by Simple Stories for The Scrapbook Store ...... how fun ☺
This collection is Disney Themed but don't let that stop you from taking a peek at it ..... it can be used for so many more everyday themes, as well as Project Life too.  It has a wonderful selection of colours and embellishments to work with.
Today I'm sharing my first DT page:

 As well as pattern papers, there is a selection of more solid colour papers, such as this black with the subtle black dots.  Seeing as I rarely use black as my background and that I really like the whole blackboard look at the moment, I decided to use this 12x12 Black Dot/Stripe pattern paper!!  I've cut out some elements from other pattern papers in this collection and teamed it up with chipboard stickers and a new stencil by WOW Alta Matz - Moroccan 6x6.  Here are some close-up's:
 I've used modelling paste along with the stencil to create this background - white really pops out from the black and I've added some splashes of mist to add colour.  There is also some sprinkling of glitter - Distressed Glitter - Fired Brick.  I really loved working with this new stencil and was super impressed with the crisp image that comes with modelling paste.
 The banner and stars are Chipboard Stickers from this collection - chipboard stickers always give nice layers to your pages ☺
 These are assorted elements that I've cut out from some of the papers.  Have also used some stickers from the Expressions Cardstock Stickers. So many stickers, letters and words on the one page - definitely great value ☺
And here is some more background texture with the stencil.  I've also added in a hand-made crochet heart - I love to crochet and made up a bundle of hearts the other day to use on my pages.
I've also stamped with white ink and a script stamp and used a white pen for some outlining.

Products used:
Modelling paste
crochet heart
script stamp
white ink
white pen
