Hello - the school holidays and birthdays have keep me busy and away from here - we just have a few more days left and it's back to school, so we are making the most of it and enjoying ourselves ☺
I've still been working with my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store.  Today I'm sharing a page using Simple Stories - the Daily Grind collection. It's one of those great collections that you can use for the 'everyday' happenings in your life.  It really is quite versatile!!

 I've used this lovely woodgrain look paper as my background - it already had some elements printed on the page.  I've used a new stencil by Memory Box called Worn Alphabet.  I've also used a couple of other embellishments which I will list later in the post.  Here are some close-up's:
 Texture paste always looks great on a dark background - here I've used the stencil with white texture paste and then just lightly stamped with a script stamp.  I love making use of the packaging - here I've matted the photo with some Prima packaging!
I've also created some faux flair by punching out some 1" circles from the pattern paper and then adding an epoxy dot. 
 This collection comes with some fun pockets in different shapes and sizes - I've used this smaller one and added in a shipping tag, creating a cluster of embellishments.  There is also another faux flair and I've added some mist to a canvas white flower to add some colour.
I am loving these WOW speech bubble - just the cutest embellishment.  My title is from some Jillibean Soup stickers.

Product used:
12x12 pattern paper - Simple Stories - Hello New Day
Shipping Tag
Script Stamp
Texture paste
Jillibean Soup - Wise words stickers
cotton thread
canvas flower

I will have another share from this fabulous collection soon - there is still some product available from this collection - please check the online store. 

Thanks for coming by ♥
