Fun with Elements!

Hey Simple Stories fans! Nicole here today to share a few projects using cut apart/element sheets in different ways! I love how each Simple Stories collection has different sized element sheets that can be simply clipped out for you to get creative with!


For my first project “Summer is a State of Mind”, I started with the cut apart sheet from Summer Days. I was too tempted to use a lot of the different cards and patterns, so I chose a few favorites and clipped them down a little to make some simple banners on my page.



You can see that I varied the size and shape of the pennant designs and then added in some smaller sized patterned papers to add to the flow of the pennants.




 I love how the cards provided me a simple title for my page – one of the hardest things for me to decide to do on a layout is the title!



Now that my pennant designs were all ready to go, I was able to add some Cardstock stickersDecorative brads and Bits & Pieces to embellish each pennant quickly and easily too!




For my second layout, I took a more simple approach to the use of the cut apart sheet in the Hello Lovely Simple Set. I chose the “Hello Lovely” 4x6 journaling card from the sheet and used it as the title on my project.


The bold black adds a pop! to the page and creates a great focal point for the layout to come together. I added in some simple strips of paper from the Hello Lovely Simple Set, mixing in a little blue paper from my stash.



All there was really left to do is add some Cardstock Stickers from the collection using foam adhesive to pop them off the page slightly, and of course a few enamel dots I had left over from the Life in Color collection.
