Hello Simple Stories friends! Nathalie here today with a new project that celebrates the fun excursion days at sea in my native Ecuador. I was so happy to receive the new Cruisin' collection from Simple Stories as it fits all those special pictures of the many excursions we went on while visiting my family back home. So let me show you what i created.
To start this layout, i chose a cut file from The Cut Shoppe and used it to create the anchor from the Set Sail paper and the helm from the Man Overboard paper. A bit of hand stitching was added around the shapes to bring some texture and dimension to the page.
These two pieces were then attached to the b-side of the 2x2 element paper using some foam adhesive so that they create depth on the background of the piece.
The beautiful chipboard stickers from the Cruisin' collection were ideal to create the title of this page. I simply added them to the top right corner of the helm along with some stars. Before adding the picture, i trimmed the page a bit, and glued it to the Explore the Shore paper. This helped framing the page completely.
I used pieces of ephemera and stickers to create clusters at the corners of the picture. Just love all the fun elements that make it so easy to bring the sentiments of the day to the page.
This page was so fun to put together, and just love how it turned out. The fun Cruisin' collection from Simple Stories is not just perfect to document your cruising memories. Make sure to check it out, you will love it!!!
