Happy Tuesday! Today I am up on the Simple Stories Blog with my first post as a new Creative Team member! I’m so excited to be working with Simple Stories! They are one of my very favorite paper companies and I adore working with their collections.
I have two scrapbook pages for you. The first one is documenting my children enjoying their Easter baskets on Easter morning.
I cut a couple of angled strips of the Hip Hop Hooray paper
(using both of the patterns) to go across the top and bottom of my page.
For my title, I fussy-cut the “Happy Easter” from the 4×6 journaling Cards Elements Paper
. I added the adorable bunny face sticker
(my favorite!) to the left and then sprinkled in several of the heart stickers
. I matted each of the heart stickers with white cardstock, so that they had the same feel to the other stickers I was using on the page.
I loved the little saying on the Easter Egg 4×6 Journaling Card
and wanted to add it to the bottom of my page. I used my trimmer to cut it out and then adhered it below the photos. I placed Easter eggs and the cute little chick on either end as accents.
I love these adorable patterns from this set! They help add a spring-timey feel to these Easter morning photos even though my kids are still in their pajamas. LOL!
When my daughter turned eight years old, she was baptized by my husband. I couldn’t wait to use the adorable Faith collection
to record her special day and into our memory books!
I loved the navy Shine Paper
with all of it’s inspirational messages and decided to use that paper as the base to my layout. I clustered together several fun phrase stickers and hearts in the corners of my two photos to help tie them in with the title and draw your eye around the page.
I love these photos of my daughter and my husband, they were just radiating with goodness that day and the hearts and flowers
perfectly convey my full heart and emotions as I look at these two special people in my life!
I die cut my title using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I cut each phrase/letter out of two colors of cardstock to create a shadow effect. The letters of the word “heart” are embossed with an embossing folder
to add more texture. I think they help repeat the cute fleck pattern of the pink
and yellow photo mats
at the top of the page, too!
To the left of the title I fussy-cut some of the feathers from a journaling card
to use as a page accent. I added white crochet twine to the stem of each feather for more texture.
The feathers and title are all anchored on a strip of striped Grace paper
. On the right side of the strip I added two of the epoxy metal clips
. Aren’t they cute?! I love adding in different textures, like metal, to my pages. The epoxy at the top of the metal clips
and on the decorative brads
add a bit of shine, too!
I hoped you enjoyed seeing my pages today and that they inspired you to scrapbook some of your favorite family memories!
Thanks for coming by! See you again soon!
