Say Cheese Fun!
Hello Simple Stories Friends and Fans!
Nathalie with you today with a super fun layout that features the new Say Cheese 4 collection. What can i say!, Simple Stories has created the perfect collection as it can be used to document your memories at the theme park as well as your every day memories. There are so many embellishments, papers, and designs to chose from that it makes is so easy and fun to create projects.
The inspiration for this page of my Goddaughter ready to visit the most magical place on the world was her head band.
I used the stencil as a guide to create the silhouette of the mouse head on white paper. Next i used a few paper edge punches to create the scalloped paper strips out of all the black color papers that i found in the SAY CHEESE 4 collection, basic paper pack and 6x8 paper pad. I glued the strips together on the paper silhouette and stitched around the edge of the silhouette to hold them all together. All the extra pieces were trimmed so that the silhouette can be easily recognized.
To keep the focus on the head band, i drew and cut the image of the bow onto the b side of the 4x6 Element paper of the Say Cheese 4 collection, and use some white thread to hand stich it to a piece of white cardstock. Once the image was completely stitched and detailed, i fussy cut the cardstock leaving a small offset around the image, and glued it straight onto the head silhouette.
The B side of the Make a Wish paper serves as the base for the page. A bit of white acrylic paint was added as a background for the head silhouette. Once the piece was glued to the page, i used some of the Sn@p cards to back and pictures and glued to the layout. There are so many embellishments to chose from that it was so easy to create clusters of stickers, ephemera around the pictures.
Now, to complete this page, i used the new Fun Large Words Metal Die to cut part of the title from 6x8 paper - i used some white cardstock die cuts to create depth on the die cut-, and then used the Happy Words Stamp and Dies to create the word "day". To just finish this page, i added a matching bow clip to the title, and a few lines of journal around the mouse head silhouette.
I am totally in love with this collection, and the possibilities (trust me i have created a few layouts with it already). Whether you love the theme park or just want a fun colorful collection, the new SAY CHEESE 4 is definitely one of the funnest releases from Simple Stories this year, and a must for your documenting. You can always contact me if you have questions on how this came together.
