It feels like life lately has had us getting back to the basics.  Perfect timing to create a layout with some new basic products from Simple Stories, the Color Vibe collection! This collection has basics to help supplement your patterned paper collections or to take out on it's own.  Today I am going to show you how I used it on it's own!

When I am working with simple patterns, I often go to cut files!  Today was no exception!  For this layout I used an older viewfinder cut file from the Simple Stories store.  By enlarging it to fit on a 12 X 12 layout, I was able to add a lot of pictures to it!  

The Color Vibe papers are textured with one side being solid and one side have dots.  I love the dots as an added option!  I utilized that side for my entire layout combining both the Basics & Bolds paper collections.

One advantage to working with Color Vibe is that you can totally tailor the colors to match your photos exactly!  Having a lot of reds, yellows, and blues in my pictures; I opted for those as my main colors!  I cut out stars and the title in those colors.

I also used the Foam Alphabets in coordinating colors to add "7" to my spots without pictures.  This was a nice way to add in a meaningful element!
