Hello Sunshine

 Scrapbook Layout created for Simple Stories  -  HELLO SUNSHINE  - 

Hello Simple Stories friends and fans!

Nathalie with you today with a new project that is Spring on a page.   I was so excited to be able to create some samples for Creativation this year, and this is one of them (that is why there is no journal lines on it yet!!!).  That means I was one of the lucky ones who got to play with some of the new collections before they were released, and the new Bliss collection is one of the  most beautiful ones  i have seen.   Just look at all that purple!!

It all started when i cut the triangles from the Live in the Moment paper from the collection. I wanted to take advantage of the angles to anchor my picture between them.   So once i cut them,  i carefully also cut some of the butterfly wings  -using an exacto knife- so that they could be lifted of the page

Then i hand stitched the triangles to white cardstock, making sure to follow the lines of the wood grain of the paper design.  To add more interest to the triangles, a few fussy cut butterflies were also stitched, through the center line, so that they form a flying path on the page.

I fell in love with the florals in this collection, so I fussy cut quite a bit of them from the Be Good, and Remember to Shine papers to create the clusters around the picture.  All the fun embellishments (and the ones included in this collection are gorgeous) just help bring more sentiment to the page.

The title for this page (all about my niece's sweet smile, and love for the ipad) comes from the chipboard sticker set from the collection.   Once i set the "Hello Sunshine" banner for the title, i quickly add another one at the top of the picture.  The movement they create along with the butterflies is just what this layout needed.

I hope this has inspired you to pick the beautiful Bliss collection.   It is the perfect Spring collection, and you will be wanting to use it all to document the upcoming season.  Remember to check all the new Simple Stories collections, they are so so beautiful

See you all soon!
