Today design team member Nancy Damiano joins us with this beautiful layout using our We Are...Family collection!
Hi there Simple fans! Today I'm using the new We Are…Family collection and a beautiful cut file from The Cut Shoppe to highlight two vacation snapshots.
I used the pie heart cut to create a border of colorful hearts across the page. I love the intricate design of the hearts. I layered them on some of the more neutral patterns from the We Are…Family collection so that the cut would really stand out. Some fun chipboard words and a cluster of enamel dots add dimension and interest to the border of hearts.
I used a chipboard arrow, journaling and large date created with Photoshop to divide the design of the layout. I think it’s a fun, colorful way to break up the photo section from the embellishment section.
Now on to my Life Documented Planner! I usually like to photograph the clean, freshly decorated planner pages without all of the writing for my planner posts. This time though, I’ll give you a real-life peek at what it looks like once I get my life in it!
And the back to school rush in the Northeast begins! I like the weekly overview to keep me organized with a snapshot of what's going on in any given week. I use the calendar icons and little bit of washi tape to add some color.
This week started with a shopping list headed with alpha stickers in two sizes, colorful washi and sticky notes. I like that I can easily move around the stick notes to other days if I don't accomplish them.
I kept a yellow, aqua, gray color scheme for the week to keep the design streamlined. A little pop of pink typewriter is a fun touch for a day spent meeting creative deadlines.
I add removable sticky notes for grocery store lists. This makes it easy to remove and stick to the back of my cell phone - the one thing I won't forget to look at! And that's a peek of my life, lists and plans for this week. Nine months and counting in my Simple Stories Life Documented planner and still going strong!
