Nathalie with you today with a new layout all about the glorious outdoors. There is nothing like fresh air and good company to create great memories, and when the new Happy Trails collection from Simple Stories arrived at my door, i quickly pulled a few of those memories to create this page.
I am a sucker for wood grain paper, so i quickly pulled the Happy Camper paper to cut the title from it using a cut file from the Silhouette store. At the same time, the letters and waves were also cut from the Lakeside paper.
The title was backed with the patterned paper and foam adhesive to create a bit of dimension on the layout. The waves were then hand stitched to the Love You S'more paper, and then the title was glued in place above the waves.
I used the Happy Trails 3x4 and 4x6 element papers to back the pictures, and then attached them to the bottom of the title. I used elements from the Chipboard and cardstock stickers as well as both Bits and Pieces packs to create the clusters around them.
To break up all the wood grain of the background, i decided to trim the bottom of the page a bit and back it with a piece of the Lakeside paper. A small fold was created at the bottom of the page, here i added a few stickers and pieces of ephemera to bring a bit more interest to the page.
To finish the page, i chose to add clusters at the corners of the title work, so that they bring the colors of the collection, and celebrate my daughter's fishing adventure.
I hope this has inspired you to document those sweet and glorious outdoor adventures using the new Simple Stories Happy Trails collection. Remember to check it out, you are going to love it!
