Hello Friends! I was so excited when I first saw this line from Simple Stories and I could not wait to get my hands on it! As soon as it was available from Memory Works I ordered it up and I received it in the mail the other day! The colors are so fun and perfect for summer! I have a layout to share with you today and I am going to take you through a little step by step of how I created my layout! I started out with a plain white 12×12 and used 3 Splash sprays from Amuse Studio in Cherry, Mermaid, and Lime.
After this I took one of the 12×12 pattern papers in the collection and cut some strips out of it and adhered them to my layout with some temporary adhesive.
I then cut out one of the 4×6 cards and matted it with one of the faux chalkboard papers and ended up with this.
I wanted something dark behind the 4×6 card to kind of separate it from the colored strips and I think the black is perfect! I saw this little card and I thought it was adorable but knew I wanted to cut it up a little. This is how it looked
Super cute, Right!? But I wanted the words on the heart so I cut it all out and added some stitching!
Next I took my photo and matted it with paper from the collection, added a sticker and some stitching and voila my photo is ready
After placing my photo on my layout I felt like the strips of colored papers were missing something so I grabbed my sewing machine and added some stitching to each strip!
I think it is looking good so far! I wanted to keep it pretty simple this time and I just added a few more small embellishments and here is my finished layout!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you are in love with this collection as much as I am Memory Works has it in stock and I can get it delivered to your door! Just shoot me a message and I can send you a paypal invoice! I hope you all have a fabulous day!
