Frankie and Friends
Hi Simple Stories fans Rebecca here! I LOVE Halloween. My kids LOVE Halloween. They are both still on the young side, so cutesy is the mainstay for their costumes. And that's ok with me! I featured two pictures of them in their costumes and went with a SIMPLE color block design.
When I am creating a color block layout, I pretend like I am dealing with a jigsaw puzzle and start with one piece that I know from the beginning where it is going to be. For this layout it was this un-matted photo.
I am not really big into measuring and rulers so I just do quick checks on the basics. The photo was 5" tall so I cut a piece of patterned paper to that height. Then I eye ball how much room I want inbetween the two pieces and how wide I want it to be (remembering to have a border around the whole page).
That block ended up housing a smaller matted photo. From there it is pretty easy to have two long blocks one for the top and one for the bottom.
Finally I used some Simple Stories Bits and Pieces, Brads, Cardstock Stickers and Chipboard stickers.
So if you are a Halloween fanatic like my family, you will definitely want to get every bit of Simple Stories Frankie and Friends and start having fun!
