Look for the Beautiful in Every Day
Hello everyone! It's Jennifer and I'm on the blog today to share pages I created with the new Beautiful collection! Can I first just talk about how amazingly gorgeous this line is? I feel like it has a different feel with the muted pastel colors mixed in with gold foil! The black and grays are wonderful for contrast, as well! Beautiful is definitely a feminine collection but could be used for wedding or vintage themes too!
For my first layout, Amazing, I used one of the awesome Simple Stories Silhouette cut files for my background! I used the Sectioned Heart Cut file first with my white cardstock background. I love the many patterns in the Live Beautifully paper so I chose that to be my "insert pieces" for my cut file. I again cut the Sectioned Heart file with Live Beautifully so I could adhere each piece into the negative spaces. It is helpful to first adhere the white cardstock onto a second sheet of cardstock, as well.
Once my insert pieces were in place, I used my sewing machine to add a couple lines of stitching around my heart!
After adhering my photo, I added in die cuts from the Bits and Pieces pack including this gold foil script "Amazing" that I used for my title. I used a bit of foam tape to "pop" it up to add some dimension.
I love that the embellishments include many little accent pieces including stickers and die cut pieces! I kept with the heart them and added few to the top of my photo! You can also spy a tab sticker from the Combo Sticker sheet (which measures 12x12!).
Showing additional pieces from the Bits and Pieces pack! I love the sentiment cards with their empowering statements! I thought this was perfect for a page for my teen daughter!
For my second layout, Look For the Beautiful in Every Day, I was inspired by the circles in Simply Wonderful as well as the circle embellishments on the 6x12 Chipboard Sheet. I wanted to incorporated them all together without being too busy. I again used my Silhouette and cut circle frames with Shine Bright which includes gold foil dots! The frames range from 2 1/2 to 4 inches in diameter; I also placed different patterns in the center of each frame.
Again, my daughter is the subject of my page! I hope that when she looks at her scrapbooks, she will see herself through my eyes! This is another reason why I love this collection so much! All of the little sentiments are perfect and what I think every parent wants to tell their child. I used one of the sentiments stickers as my title; I love the deco shape and used pop dots to add dimension.
I also incorporated my different circle hand punches to layer more circles and add in those circle embellishments I first mentioned! I also had some grey, gold, and white enamel dots in my stash that I added.
I'm a big fan of roller stamps and love using my Carpe Diem stamps to add little sentiments under my date! You can also spy one of the many sentiment stickers found on the Combo Sticker sheet! There are FIVE rows of different sayings all in the gorgeous colors of the collection!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will check out this collection in its entirety! And be sure to see the NEW and awesome lines Simple Stories has in store for this year!
Have a wonderful day!
