Love Today!

Hello friends! It's Jennifer with you today to share a layout I  created using the very fun Oh, Happy Day collection!  The bright patterns and whimsical embellishments are perfect for just about any theme or project! I  feel, too, that its a bit girly without being over the top!  I  scrapped photos of my teen daughter at her last birthday (and yes that is a Peppa Pig headband!) LOL

One of the many new additions to the larger Simple Stories lines is the Simple Basics Kit which includes coordinating solid papers.  I  don't know about you but I  rarely have matching cardstock so I'm very appreciative of this!  For my base, I  started with the Fuchsia from the Oh Happy Day Simple Basics Kit.  I  then added some strips of bright patterns at the bottom and stitched through with my sewing machine.  For my title, I  utilized the black script words from the 6x12 Chipboard.  You can also spy some of the coordinating Washi Tape which is a great way to accent your pages!

I  matted my photos with white cardstock along with backing them with patterned paper or a solid from the Simple Basics Kit.  I'm a fan of layering not only for additional color but also dimension.  I  snipped a portion of the border sticker on the Combo Sticker sheet and placed it in a spot between photos. Using pop dots, I added this fun die cut sign from the Bits and Pieces pack which includes a large variety of shapes and sentiments!

One of my favorite things about Oh Happy Day is the floral clusters!  I  used a few on my page around my photos and title.  Of course, I  pop dots were involved! The collection has many in the Bits and Pieces pack as well as on the Combo Sticker sheet!  

Adding small stickers or die cuts at the top of a photo is a nice way to accent without being overbearing.  The little birds are adorable plus my daughter is a bird lover so I  had to add one to her page. I  also added a smaller flower with a pop dot as well.
