You & Me

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Happily Ever After collection.  This collection was just what I needed to scrap these sweet photos of my kids when they were just 3 & 5 years old.  

I fussy cut the flowers on the left of my layout from the Now and Forever paper to create a border on the side of my page.

I then added some flowers from the ephemera pack and word stickers on the right of my page.

The chipboard frames are perfect to make your photos stand out!  I love how my eye automatically goes to the center photo!

I just added a few hearts and enamel dots to finish!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Supplies used:
Happily ever after collection kit
Happily ever after enamel dots
Happily ever after chipboard frames
Happily ever after ephemera

Summertime love

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for A Flair For Buttons.  Is everyone looking forward to summer as much as I am?  I miss the warm days and all the photo opportunities!  I take so many more photos in the summer!

I used the Summertime collection from Echo Park and a cut file from Paige Evans.  This summertime flair was a perfect match for this!

Sometimes a simple word can describe a moment.  What better word than happy for watermelon on a hot day?

Thanks for stopping by!

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Safe Travels collection and a cut file from Cut To You.  I've always found boy layouts harder to do than girl layouts, I'm very much a flowers and rainbows kinda girl, but every time Simple Stories comes out with a boy type collection I am always amazed by how easy it is to work with!

This collection could not have been more perfect for my photos of my son with his scooter permit!  I mean really, the little piece of ephemera with the permit is adorable!

I backed the cut file by using papers from the 6x6 paper pad, I left some areas empty so it didn't make the background too busy.

I finished by adding a few more pieces of embellishments and some stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!

 Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new layout to share using the Simple Vintage Cottage Fields collection.  There are no words to describe how beautiful this collection is.  I'm always a big fan of florals and this doesn't disappoint.  

I used a cut file from Paige Evans for my background.  After I added all the flower petals I stitched them all with my sewing machine and folded them to add dimension,

I used a black and white photo so it would pop more against my busy background.  I used foam squares on the photo and most of the ephemera so it wouldn't flatten the flower petals.

I added some black word strips and a few black adhesive brads to tie in with the black and white photo.

I love the way this layout turned out.  The colors are so beautiful!
