Layouts with Vintage Blessings

Layouts with Vintage Blessings

Hello friends!  Jennifer on the blog today to share some pages I created with the new Vintage Blessings collection!  It's almost fall time where I live and I will tell you this is my favorite time of the year! The air is more crisp and the leaves are beginning to turn colors!  It also means beautiful fall colored scrapbook papers!  :)  Vintage Blessings has delicate, warm colors that are inviting and remind you of all of the fall themed activities!  Like most Simple Stories collections, you can use this line for just about any theme! 

For my first layout "Blessings", I wanted to scrap a favorite photo from one of our fall traditions: homecoming!  I started with a kraft background and utilized the many beautiful patterns of Vintage Blessings!  I love using my Silhouette to use Simple Stories cut files that are available in shop!  I cut four small circles of the "Wreath" cut file (#214849) from the So Thankful sheet.  I adhered them randomly on my page allowing portions to "hang off" the cardstock.Layouts with Vintage 

I stitched through each of the circles with my sewing machine and then added die cuts from the Bits and Pieces pack as well stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet. I love all of the dainty little embellishments that are a part of the Simple Stories collections! 

For my title, I used the "blessed" sentiment on the Combo Sticker Sheet popping it up with foam tape. I also love the smaller quote cards that are in the Bits and Pieces pack! Here, I added one to accent my title as well as one of the floral clusters.  The Combo Sticker Sheet also includes many colorful sentiment stickers such as the "making memories" one I used on my page.  

How adorable is this die cut branch and bird from the Bits and Pieces pack?  I adhered them off the top edge of my photo to make a cute accent!  This would also be perfect to use on a card! 


For my second layout "I Love Autumn", I scrapped another fall family tradition! When our kids were little, they LOVED jumping in a big pile of leaves!  Luckily, we lived in an older neighborhood and we had to do a lot of raking! I created a semi grid layout clustering my photos together.  I also used a strip of the multi-colored houses of Home Sweet Home along with the yellow plaid of So Very Blessed.  

On my smaller square, I backed the gorgeous bird print of Gather Together onto one of the 4x4 Elements. This is a great way to utilize the Element Cards if you aren't doing pocket scrapbooking.  I then clustered my embellishments using both stickers and pieces from the 6x12 Chipboard.  I love the smaller fall colored leaves to use as accents.  

Vintage Blessings doesn't disappoint with the washi tape!  How gorgeous is the blue on the Grateful Washi?  I used a strip at the top of one of my photos and layered stickers on top.  

The Bits and Pieces pack has many journaling spots such as this "blessed" circle!  I adhered mine to the top of my photo to document the date as well as add a cute acorn and bakers twine.  

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you will check out Vintage Blessings in its entirety on the Products page as well as the rest of the new collections!  Have a great day!
