August Simple Stories Layouts

Today I have two new layouts to share with you that I created for Simple Stories!

For my first layout, I used the "I Love This Place" cut file by Simple Stories. I cut it repeatedly from white cardstock, and used it to create a background. I love the look of white on white for backgrounds!

After I created my background, I used the SN@P! Pack to create my layers. Next, I added stickers and embellishments! I stitched down my title with a sewing machine.

I love the triangle-filled heart! I cut it out from the horizontal elements sheet. Some of my favorite ephemera-style embellishments come from cutting the element sheets!

I used a heart punch to create this next layout. I punched from multiple different patterns and scattered them across the page. I focused more at the top, so they looked like they were scattering down.

Next, I placed my strip of photos and added my title. I wanted to focus on using the marquee-type letters included in this collection, so I added as long of a title as I could!

Thanks for joining me today. I had a great time creating these Summer layouts, and I hope you're enjoying scrapping Summer memories as much as I am!

August Elle's Studio Reveal

Hello there! It's time for the Ellie's Studio August Exclusive kit reveal!

There are lots of fun extras this month too! The acrylic hearts and wood veneers are my favorite.

Here's the layout I created using this kit!

I was inspired by the confetti card included in the kit. I used a circle punch to create my confetti, and used similar colors and placement as the card design. These aren't colors I normally use, so it was great to step outside of my comfort zone! The acrylic hearts were the perfect size to act as confetti too! I stamped my title and added a few more bits from the kit.

For this next layout, I used the new reading themed mini collection! I love books, and the cute wood veneers made me want to document my love of Harry Potter.

I used Gelatos and staps to create a mixed media background. My photo doesn't match my layout at all, and I'm okay with that. I love the colors!

That book wood veneer is the cutest!! If you want more inspiration using all the new stuff in the Elle's Studio shop, please stop by the Design Team Gallery. Have a great day!

Wands at the Ready

HI! i layout to share with you using the Very Squarey cut file from The Cut Shoppe. This layout was inspired by a 6"x6" paper pad. I wanted to use as many patterns from it as possible, and was looking for a file that would be great for featuring the designs. Very Squarey was perfect!

I backed some of the squares with paper, and left others blank. I love the look of white on white! I used the Shimelle Starshine collection and a photo of my wand and I at the Harry Potter theme park! I added bold title with thickers and some ephemera, but kept the embellishing on the simpler side.

I love the way it turned out! Thank you stopping by :)

Wonderful Moments

Today I'm sharing a layout I created for The Cut Shoppe using the Abstract Angles cut file.

To create this layout, I randomly backed triangles on the cut file. There are tons and tons of triangles many overlapping each other. I chose the ones that stood out to me and tried to space them as evenly as possible. A 6"x6" pad or scraps works great for this!

I pulled pink items from my stash and played around with them until I was happy. 

I had forgotten how much I love monochromatic layouts! Creating this page has definitely inspired me to use the monochromatic technique more often, and I had fun using the Abstract Angles cut file. Thanks for joining me today!

Summer Sun & Fun!

Hello there! I have a Summer-themed layout to share with you using the "Summer Sun and Fun" cut file from The Cut Shoppe.I love the script writing!

I used a mix of Crate Paper's The Pier and Poolside and a picture of us at the beach. I made the cut file large to be the focal point of my page, and the used the offset tool to mat it with another patterned paper. I definitely don't use the offset tool enough, and I think it's a great way to mix up cut files!

Thanks for joining me! Stop by The Cut Shoppe blog for more cut file inspiration!
