ME & YOU - Simple Stories

Hello Simple Stories friends!
Nathalie with you today to share  a new layout that celebrate love!  I found my best friend 21 years ago, and within a month we had our wedding planned. The adventure we embarked has shown us the meaning of true love, and I wanted to document us using the new Sweet Talk collection from Simple Stories.

I love the papers in this collection, lots of pinks, hearts with a hint of tealish blue.   So, I decided to play with paper for the background of this page.

My starting point was the  b side of ALL MY HEART paper, I love simple striped paper.  Next, I pulled the floral paper from the 6x8 PAPER PAD; here I needed to find a plain and contrasting paper, so I reached into the SIMPLE PAGES set and cut a piece of the teal paper.  In order to tie all the colors together, I cut a piece from the b-side of LOVE'S IN THE AIR.  I glued them all together so that they add movement on the background.

I added the pictures to the center of the papers in a soft diagonal line.  Here is where I had fun with all the embellishments that I could find in the DIE CUT packs,  STICKERS, SIMPLE CARD Set and SIMPLE PAGES set.   

I  pulled as many flowers as I could find and used to create clusters following the diagonal line of the design.   I added a few extra CHIPBOARD, PUFFY and FOAM stickers to each of the clusters making sure that there was a balance of color and details.

I love Scrabble, so when I saw the small letter tile FOAM STICKERS, I knew that I had found my title.   Since, I needed to balance my page, I added the title to the top right corner of the papers, then used enamel dots to tie all the clusters together.  

I love how this turned out.   The SWEET TALK collection from Simple Stories  is beautiful and perfect to bring some fun to your documenting.  Remember to check it out, you will love it, too!

'Til next time.
