March Simple Stories Layouts2:30 PM
I have TWO new layouts on the Simple Stories blog using the new Carpe Diem Scrapbooking collection!
I used the fun watercolor hearts as another accent, just because I love them so much! Another one of my favorite embellishments from this collection are the frames. They're just the perfect thickness and I love the patterns they come in. I used two of them to highlight my photos.
Since this layout had a lot going on, I decided to make it "distressed" by crinkling the edges of the layers and adding a watercolor background with gelatos.
For this next layout, I wanted to highlight the coffee themed elements, which are my absolute favorite thing about this collection. I used a heart die cut and added different patterns behind each heart using the 6"x6" paper pad. I grabbed the coffee cups (LOVE them), and added them to either side of the page. Next, I used the letter stickers to make my title!
Embellishing was so fun! I added mist, enamel dots, stickers, and various hearts from the chipboard, wood veneers, and paper clips.
To finish this layout, I sewed around the edges. I'm still learning to sew, so my sewing is anything but straight. I passed it off as messy and added corners to cover up where I tried to transition. Luckily there are no mistakes in scrapbooking!
Thanks for stopping by today!
