Love, Laugh, Live

Love, Laugh, Live

Hi there!  It’s Shei on the blog today, sharing my first Simple Stories post! I’m beyond thrilled to be part of an amazing team of talented ladies!! Let’s get started!  For my first layout I used the new Life in Color collection. I really like this line ‘cause it’s gorgeous and versatile. You can use it to document any theme.

I chose white cardstock as my background. I love the brightness that the white color brings to the whole project. One of my favorite Simple Stories’ embellishments are the chipboards frames, so I used them as my starting point. I chose seven frames with different sizes and I distribute them without apparent order, adding dimension with dimensional adhesive. Before that, I glued my picture and some paper pieces (Big Memories b-side paper, Happy Little Moments paper and one card from 3x4 Journaling Card Elements paper) on b-side of some frames.

Once I had the frames glued I stuck my tittle “Love, laugh, live”. I used the Scrabble words from Simple Stories’ Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers ‘cause I fell in love with them when I first saw them.

Next came the embellishing! (my favorite part). For that I used flowers, hearts and arrows from Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers and some stickers from 4x6 Sticker Sheets (I really love the black & white word label stickers). I also added another favorite Simple Stories embellishment - the self-adhesive Bradz (what a wonderful idea these Decorative Bradz!).


The next layout I’m sharing with you today was again created with the beautiful Life in Color collection. I started this page drawing a cross on a white cardstock, so the background was divided into 4 parts. Then I used three papers (the b-side parts of Happy Little Moments, The Good Life and So Much Happiness papers) to cover three of its four parts.

I glued my picture on the intersection of these patterned papers and I created a cluster of embellishments with flowers stickers from 4x6 Sticker Sheets and Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers. I also cut some flowers from 4x4/4x6 Vertical Elements paper. 

I used different elements for my tittle. The picture of my boyfriend and me was taken some months ago at childhood friend’s wedding. I wanted to document these fun moments I’m living with him, so I wanted to use the word “Enjoy” in my tittle. For that I used the Expressions Cardstock Stickers and I added a sticker from Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers with the sentence “happy little moments”. I also added a heart sticker from Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers behind the tittle.

Again, I used my favorite Simple Stories’ embellishments, the Bradz, to accent my journaling and a frame (half frame in this case) added at the bottom of the page.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post! I hope you enjoyed my layouts! See you next month!

Never stop smiling! Kisses!!
