Focus On: Star Student Collection

By | February 24, 2016

1 LOGO STAR STUDENTThis week, we asked our designers to focus on the new Star Student collection when creating their projects. We know so many of you have already added this fun collection to your stash, and with the school year ending, it’s the perfect time to load you up with even more ideas to incorporate this collection into your projects. I love the projects our Creative Team members came up with, and I hope you do too!

To see more projects featuring our Star Student collection, visit our Star Student Idea Gallery.

“Kindergarten”, by Jennifer Chapin.

The Star Student collection was perfect to document my daughter’s end of school year party. I visited her for a “Read to me Tea” where we listened to the students read and shared snacks. I was able to get some photos of her and her friends and wanted to document how much fun she had in kindergarten this year. I started with four 2″ square photos and arranged them in a grid with some patterned paper cut down to 2″ squares. I embellished with chipboard and stickers from the collection, as well as sequins. For my journaling, I used my computer with a fun typewriter font. Love the way it turned out!

“Geek Chic”, by Kat Benjamin.

I love using themed collections for a reason other than their intended purpose. For this layout I decided to make my favorite paper from the Star Student collection (“Geek Chic”) the focus of the layout. I used watercolors and gelatos to add a bit of color to the normally black & white pattern and I also decided to add in a pop of pink. I love the end result – a fun, colorful layout that highlights the awesome photos of my niece!

“Never Stop Learning” card, by Julia Akinina.

This project I made of red and yellow paper, as for me it’s the main colors of the Star Student collection. And of course I used a lot of stars! Fortunately I have wonderful star dies for by Big Shot. They are absolutely multipurpose, and I use it in almost every project. The sentiment is also motivating. I found it on the Treasures and Text sheet. I created many layers of paper and embellishments on this card. When I finished my project I found the yellow paper layer a little bit empty so I added the imitation of the hand stitching on the edge using the black pen.

Julia_Akinina_The world is yours

“The World Is Yours” card, by Julia Akinina.

This collection includes lots of colors, so I picked out a few favorites, blue and turquoise, and created a card using only them. This is kind of motivating card which says “The world is yours”. I cut this sentiment from the Daily Details paper. I added some stars from sticker sheet and also I cut some of them with my big shot machine. Golden glittered decorative tape became a good final accent. I am so in love with this card!
