Today I'm excited to share some fun layouts I made with Simple Stories new DIY Boutique and Fresh Air collections. I paired these collections with some fabulous stamp sets from Taylored ExpressionsPockets & Pages {Documented} and Pockets & Pages {InstaFun}.

This first page features the DIY Boutique collection (with embellishments from the DIY collection added in). This is such a fun collection, full of fabulous bright colors. I embellished the circles already printed on the paper with enamel dots, stickers, chipboard and some of the Taylored Expressions {InstaFun} stamps. This stamp set worked perfectly with this selfie of my daughter. I love the style of the font and all of the hash tags.

Here's a detail shot of the top right corner of the page:

Here's a look at the area to the left of the photo, showing some of the Taylored Expressions stamps in action:

The Fresh Air Simple Set worked so well for this page about my daughter's love of Starbucks. She likes trying things from what she calls the "secret" menu — items that are not listed in the store, but are drink combos people have tried and posted online. I think I'll stick with my favorite, a tall chai tea latte with skim milk :)  On this page, I used the Taylored Expressions {Documented} set to stamp a journaling card (inside of the text frame) and used some of the word stamps around the page.

Here's a look at the stamped journaling card inside of the frame:

This is a detail shot of the bottom right corner of the page where I included the product packaging from my daughter's drink:

This last shot shows the detail to the left of the photo, including a sentiment I stamped onto cardstock and used on top of the bitty bag that holds the journaling:

I hope you enjoyed seeing how you can easily pair any of the Simple Stories collections with Taylored Expressions fabulous stamp sets!
