Scrapbook Layout created for Simple Stories - THANKFUL -
For the second project, I wanted to focus on using the soft patterns of the collection to create a very feminine and simple page about this year's Mother's Day portrait ( I am so glad i save this picture for the right collection!)
I wanted to keep the page clean and simple, so I reached for some white cardstock for the background of the page. Then cut two triangles, and two strips from the "CHOOSE HAPPY" paper, and glued them onto the white cardstock making sure to show the b side of the paper in the strips . A bit of machine stitching secures is all together to the cardstock.
All the soft patterns in the paper are perfect for recreating flowers on a layout. For these, I used a steel die to cut the petals, and a JustNick cut file to create the leaves for the page, and cut them all from the 6x8 paper pad. Then just layer the petals together and glued a small enamel dot from the Faith collection to the center of each flower.
Once all the flowers were ready to glue, then assembly on the page started. I glued the picture onto the bottom corner the page, and added two large clusters of flowers, and stems to the two corners that run along the paper triangle.
Then added a few pieces of ephemera, and stickers around the flower clusters. The pop of black, white, and gold in the pieces make the flowers softer, and bring out the details in each of them.
Finally, I wanted to bring a bit of shine to this page, and what better place than to create a foiled title for this page. Using the Deco Foil PeelnStick toner sheet, and one of the Simple Stories Silhouette store cut files, i created the title for the page. The paper was so easy to use in the Cameo machine!
Then a bit of gold foil, and some heat from the laminator bring the title to life.
The simplicity of the page is not lost with the soft flowers and stems that decorate the page. The dimension created on each of the flowers is perfect to bring the patterns on the papers to life, and keep the focus on the picture. I really love the final look of the page!
I hope you are all inspire to use the patterns, colors and foiled details in the Simple Stories BEAUTIFUL collection. It is one of my favorite Simple Stories to date, and i am sure you will also fall in love with it! Remember i am a comment away if you have any questions on how this came together.
See you all soon!
