Hello! It's Jennifer
on the blog today and I'm so excited to share my layouts using the new Sunshine & Happiness
collection! I am so in love with the bright, fun colors of this line! Since I'm ready for the warm sunny days of summer, both of my layouts are summer themed! However, Sunshine & Happiness can be used for pretty much any project!
My first layout, "Sweet Summer Days", I captured my nephew having a cool summer treat! (My sister graciously gives me photos of my niece and nephew to scrap since my kids are at that age where they dislike having their picture taken!) I layered the bright orange, yellows, and blues of the collection under my photos.
One of the many things I appreciate about Simple Stories is that there are always a variety of embellishments to choose from! How cute are the Bits and Pieces die cuts? And of course, there are always coordinating Enamel Dots! For my title, I used a combination of letter stickers from the Expressions Cardstock Stickers and the multi-colored chipboard "Summer" from the 6x12 Chipboard sheet.
I layered one of the Bits and Pieces cards with a label and sentiment sticker from the 4x6 Sticker Sheets. To accent, I added my favorite embellishments: Bradz and Enamel Dots!
Layering smaller Bits and Pieces and stickers is one of my favorites ways to accent my page! I love the bright sun from the Bits and Pieces, as well as the sentiment phrases!
For my second layout, "Hello Summer" I knew I wanted to use this favorite photo with this collection! I layered the many patterns of Sunshine & Happiness as well as utilized one of the journaling cards from the 3x4 Journaling Card Elements.
My title is cut from the Lemon Stripe pattern and the Simple Stories "Hello Summer" cut file
from the Silhouette online design store. I also added stickers from the Expressions and Fundamentals Cardstock Sticker Sheets!
Again with more layering..... I love adding clusters of embellishments on a corner of my photo! I love the colorful bird from the 6x12 Chipboard Sheet, as well pieces of the border stickers from the Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers. No layout is complete without a few Enamel Dots and Bradz!
I used a piece of a border sticker as you would washi tape on the bottom of my 3x4 Journaling Card and a Bradz to accent. I thought a little bit of stitching would complete the look; I love using my sewing machine on my pages!
I used another Simple Stories cut file, "Stars Card"
with the Lime Stripe patterned paper and layered it under my journaling card. I also added a cute tab stickers from the Fundamental Cardstock Sticker sheet, as well as a circle/heart journaling spot from the 4x6 Stickers.
