DIY MEMORIES - Simple Stories

Hi friends!
Nathalie here with a new layout all about my crafty life.   I have been blessed to be part of the Simple Stories Creative Team for the past three years and are delighted to come back for  a new term ( so happy to have been invited back.  So, what better way to celebrate this new term than documenting the moment with the new Hey Crafty Girl collection.

I started this page by creating a very colorful background.  For this i reached for the Sky Dots basic paper as the background for the page.  Then added a bit of mixed media just to help me add a touch of art to the page.

My design choice was to create large triangles of paper on the top and bottom edges of the paper.  I layered the Happy and Crafty paper on top of the Create Beauty.  These were then glued to the background forming the large triangles you see in the page.

Next, i backed the picture with the So Artsy paper and then glued it on to the top left side of  the page.   Then started using Bits and pieces, Journaling Bits and Pieces, stickers, chipboard stickers to create clusters around the picture making sure to stretch them past the triangle shape.  So many cute embellishments made this so easy to put together.

All that was left to do was add a large title to the page.   I started with the large crafty girl image on the chipboard stickers - this helps balance the page- and then used the Bits and Pieces to add the title next to her.   A few extra embellishments complete the title.  All that was left to do was add my lines of journal and a few sequins all over the page.

I love how this page turned out!  The colors and designs in the collection are so cute and versatile.  What better way to document the start of this new term with Simple Stories than to use the new Hey Crafty Girl for it.  Remember to check it out, you are going to love it!
