Hello Summer | Simple Stories Hello Summer | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am back with you to share a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the Hello Summer collection by Simple Stories!!!

I absolutely love the multicolour striped paper from this collection! So much so that I ordered 2 sheets of it! I have been hoarding them up until now! I decided I would use the first sheet by cutting out a background cut file from it. I love the effect this cut file gives to a paper like this!   

I adhered the cut file straight onto a plain white cardstock background and then started to work out where I wanted to place my photo and embellishments. I decided on the very centre of the layout so that you could see the cut file evenly on both sides. I layered a couple of the coloured papers from the 3' x 4' Elements paper underneath my photo to help it stand out from all those colours in the background paper!

I popped up the 'Hello' die-cut piece that forms part of my title using foam tape and then adhered the 'Summer' flat to the page. I like the interest this gives and the shadows this effect gets on a page. Some of the floral chipboard and die-cut pieces were perfect embellishments to tuck in to each side of the photo. 

This collection is perfect for your Summer/Beach photos! The colours are gorgeous! Find it in the Sassy Scrappers store now!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Something Wicked This Way Comes | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone,

Today I am back with you and I am sharing a new Halloween design team layout created for The Cut Shoppe using the Boo To You cut file set

When I saw the 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' title, I knew that I wanted to use it as a large title for my page, I broke the title up and cut some of it in black and the 'Wicked' part in gold.

I cut out the spider web in black cardstock from the Wicked Fun cut file set and added it to the bottom right corner of my photo. I like how it balances out the page with the busy left hand side.

I went with a black and gold theme for my layout mainly because of the witches hat I am wearing in the photo. I pulled out all the Halloween embellishments that went with the colours and the theme. 
     

I was really happy with how my page turned out today!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Life Is Better In The Summer | Simple Stories Hello Summer | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the Hello Summer collection.

As soon as I saw those super cute flamingos from the sticker sheet and the ephemera pack, I immediately thought of this super cute photo of my niece sitting on the pool flamingo when she was a baby! Because the flamingos were facing different directions, I worked my design so that I could fit both on my page.

I love that saying, 'Life is Better in the Summer' so this was the perfect title piece layered over the flamingo on the left. I also added some of the fun phrase stickers for some pops of colour around the page too. The florals in this collection are soooo pretty and I couldn't resist adding a few of those onto my page too!

I tucked in the palm tree die cut on the top right of my photo to draw in some of the green colour and create a visual triangle. The wood veneers that I have this month aren't actually from the Hello Summer collection, however they go perfectly! I used the flamingo (of course!) and one of the small flowers from the wood veneer pack.  

I just love that pineapple chipboard piece too, it was the perfect size and colour to add to the bottom right corner of my photo. 

This collection is perfect for your Summer/Beach photos! The colours are gorgeous! Find it in the Sassy Scrappers store now!

Happy creating!

Love You | Wild At Heart | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Cocoa Vanilla using one of the past collections - Wild At Heart!I absolutely adore the Wild At Heart collection, its just so beautiful with all the florals and the gorgeous colours. Some of the papers, I will admit I would struggle to use as a whole piece, I found this to be the case with the Memento paper I just love those gorgeous florals and colours but using it as a whole paper had me slightly intimidated, that's where a cut file comes in handy! I was able to cut a pretty design with this paper and all of a sudden its not too overbearing!  The cut file design is popped up off the background paper with some foam tape, I love how this allowed me to layer pretty things underneath the cut file as well as on top. I didn't matt my photo, however I did add a small, pretty Cambridge doily and one the tags from the ephemera pack were layered under my photo for some extra interest.The 'You Are the Sunshine in My Soul' piece is from the gorgeous ephemera pack, I love how it looks right up against my super cute photo and layered over the top of the cut file. I added other pretty bits and pieces from the ephemera pack also to embellish my page.I just LOVE the 'LOVE YOU' title from the chipboard sticker sheet, it was perfect to use as a title, I placed it layered over the top of the cut file and also overlapping my photo slightly also. That blue bow just had to make it onto this page - right or wrong! I was determined for it to go on and I love how it looks under the title, it really sets off the design of the page!I added a small cluster of embellishments in the top left area of the cut file to draw the eye around the globe. Some splatters of Gold Heidi Shine and the date stamp and I was finished!
I hope I have inspired you to pull out your Wild at Heart collection or any collection for that matter and get creating! Check out the Cocoa Vanilla online retail store if you need any goodies!

Happy creating!

Beach Please | Simple Stories Hello Summer | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone,

 Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the Hello Summer collection.

The inspiration for my layout this week comes from the rashee top that my niece wore to the beach recently. It matched perfectly with the green and white paper that reminded me of waves!

My niece is visiting from England at the moment and every day she has been asking to go to the beach! The 'Beach Please' die-cut made the perfect title for this page because of Amelia asking to go all the time! 

While we visited the beach this day, Amelia also built some sandcastles and absolutely LOVED it! She doesn't get to visit beaches like ours all that often so she made up for it this day! The sandcastle from the sticker sheet was another perfect element to go on this layout!

A few more beachy elements were added like the shovel and beach umbrella and some of the phrase stickers were also nice little details to add too. 

This collection is perfect for your Summer/Beach photos! The colours are gorgeous! Find it in the Sassy Scrappers store now!

Happy creating!

Fright Night | Various collections | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Happy Halloween friends!!

Today I am back with you to share a spooky Halloween layout created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using a variety of their awesome collections! Because there is no specific Halloween collection by CVS, I decided to improvise and use bits and pieces from a variety of collections to make my Halloween layout.
I started off my page by pulling out some orange and black papers from a few of the different CVS collections and then searched through some of my embellishments to find co-ordinating things to go on my layout. I chose the 'Mixed Bag' paper from the Life Is Beautiful collection as my top background paper and used the 'Happy Go Lucky' paper from the Boys Rule collection as the bottom background piece. I then took the large star die-cut also from Boys Rule and adhered it to the orange paper.Once I had all the papers adhered, I splattered some black mist around for added interest. I matted my photo with one of the papers from the Boys Rule 6' x 8' paper pad and popped the photo and matt up on foam tape. I tucked in a black label sticker from the Boys Rule accessory stickers to the left hand side of the photo.My title was typed out using a super cool Halloween inspired font and then cut from one of the papers in the Boys Rule 6' x 8' paper pad using my Silhouette Cameo. I love how the title turned out! I love how I cut it so the grain of the paper is running vertical in the title. The skull and crossbone elements from Boys Rule were absolutely perfect to go on this page! I wouldn't normally reach for this kind of embellishment, however I am glad I had a good excuse to use them!
I added a few of the chipboard sticker embellishments from the You Rock collection too, I like how the colours look against the orange paper.

I hope you all have a fabulous Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by today!

All You Need Is Icecream | Simple Stories Hello Summer | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the Hello Summer collection.
I started out by cutting a large vertical strip from the watermelon paper to adhere on the right side of the page and cut a smaller strip for the left side. I then placed the black and white scallop sticker beside the small strip. 
I had two super cute photos of my niece eating ice-cream and some of the elements in this collection go perfectly with the photos! I set the photos out in a vertical design to fit in with the paper strips.
The All You Need Is Ice-cream title was the perfect title for my layout so I placed it to the left of my bottom photo. I added a few chipboard stickers, wood veneers and some die-cuts to embellish.

The sticker tabs with the words on them are great for adding extra little details!

Make sure to check this collection out in the Sassy store plus so much more!

Happy creating!
