Happy New Year to you all! Nathalie with you today to share a new project featuring the gorgeous HELLO TODAY collection. Let's talk about the perfect collection: it must have pretty paper, lots of functional embellishments, a colorful palette, lots of cut aparts, and an awesome stamp... well then we you are going to love this collection as much as I do. So versatile that you can document all your memories and create cards, pocket pages, etc.
I love the new HELLO TODAY collection, and luckily I received the entire collection and add ons, so I was able to pick pieces from all the things to create this simple but colorful page!
As soon as I saw the chipboard frame with the paper clip on top, the idea for my layout just came to mind, a group of papers held together by a paper clip. So, I backed the frame with a black and white picture, and then layer pieces of paper from the 6x8 paper pad, Simple Card kit and Simple Pages kit. I glued this together messily and then attached them to the B side of the October paper.
To balance the papers, I wanted a very bold title. I found the large numbers in the Simple Pages kit, and decided to prop them with a bit of foam adhesive on a vertical line next to the papers. I love the colors and size of the ephemera!
To complete the title, I used a combination of foam stickers, chipboard stickers and alphas from the sticker tablet ( a bit of foam adhesive helps to prop them from the page). The combination of colors, textures and sizes works great in this design. Once the title was down, I created a few more clusters of embellishments around the layout and tied them all together with butterfly stickers and die cuts.
Did I mention the collection has a awesome stamp! I journal everyday, so this stamp is perfection! This time, I used the word, "Today", to bring the page together. Along the way, I also added small pops of color with some enamel dots.....
I just love how easy this page came together in a short amount of time. The messy papers, and the bold title just complement each other. I hope you check the new Simple Stories' HELLO TODAY collection, you are going to love it ( and even hoard it!)
