Have you seen the NEW Bunnies & Blooms collection from Simple Stories? Even if you don’t have any Easter or Spring photos to scrapbook, the florals and ‘B’ side patterns make this collection a must-have! I am using it today to scrapbook these photos of my daughter and I enjoying lunch together at her elementary school for her birthday.
NOTE: Scroll down if you’d like to watch the process video for this layout!
Some page designs come together quickly for me, while others are a struggle. This was one of those pages that practically put itself together. LOVE when that happens! You can watch my process in the video below.
I thought the ‘Bloom’ title worked well for this birthday layout, since my daughter was blooming into a young lady. 🙂 I love the floral accents on the title pieces in this collection. This piece is from the Chipboard Stickers, but you can find even more in the pack of Foam Stickers. Yay!
The machine stitching and distressed paper edges add texture.
Within the last year Simple Stories has added ‘Tags’ and ‘Journal Elements’ papers to their line-up of cut apart sheets with each collection. I love the journaling options this gives for scrapbook pages. I almost always use a journal spot to write the details on my layouts. That way, if I mess up writing the information, I’m not ruining my entire page. I simply cut out another one and try again! And there are so many different styles, colors, and sizes to choose from on a single sheet. Awesome!
Isn’t the Bunnies + Blooms collection beautiful?! Would you use it to scrapbook Spring or Easter photos? Or would you use it as an ‘everyday’ collection like I did here? Tell me in the comments below!
Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection! I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.
I think every little (and big) girl goes through a phrase of loving unicorns and rainbows. If you are one of those girls (and WHO isn’t?!) you are going to want to spend a day playing with the Doodlebug Lots O’ Luck collection with all of its rainbow and unicorn goodness!
For my daughter’s 14th birthday, I had my bestie bake her this darling unicorn cake as a surprise. She loved it! It was perfect with it’s rainbow colored mane, golden horn, and delicious pink, Funfetti cake inside.
For the title, I used a sticker from the This & That Sticker Sheet. I just love that rainbow and the sentiment, “You Color My World.” I accented this corner of the page with a couple of die cut clouds from the Odds & Ends pack, and Gold Sprinkles.
You KNOW I had to add a unicorn to a page about a unicorn cake! Isn’t she cute with her rosy cheeks and rainbow mane and tail?! I paired her with a couple of hearts from the Odds & Ends pack and then added Matte Sprinkles and Gold Sprinkles to the hearts for dimension.
These papers make me smile every time I pull them out to play with them and you will, too! Have fun!
I had three photos for this page and I knew that I wanted to line them up in a row. I put the largest photo in the center and then the two smaller, supporting photos on either side.
I cut a large circle from the Multi Journaling Cards paper and matted it with a wavy circle that I cut from the Navy Felt Designer Cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. The large red starburst pattern from this paper really draws your attention to the photos and makes them “center-stage.”
Nothing says “party” like a banner! I used a banner punch and the Three Ring Circus patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad to create a mini banner out of the different characters on the cards. The striped triangle pennant pieces were also punched from the 6×6 paper pad. I adhered the banner pieces in a row to my background and then used my sewing machine to stitch across the top so they appear to be strung together.
