So Sweet By Christine Meyer!

So Sweet By Christine Meyer!

My daughter is at a beautiful in-between age.  She's not a little girl anymore but not a full grown adult either.  That has called for a shift in my scrapbooking style for her as well.  The brand new Kate & Ash collection is perfect for telling her story as she grows into a young lady! Christine joining you today with a layout about my thirteen year old!

This collection showcases a variety of icons and shapes that will make telling that teenage story easy! There's a little bit of sass mixed in with sweet all tied together with a bunch of fun!

Kate & Ash has an amazing color combination that makes the patterned papers just gorgeous!  I wanted to use as many as possible!  So I created a huge layer of the papers on my layout. I used layers of large squares and then the top layer (before the pictures) was triangles put together to make a square.  I carefully chose my papers mixing light and dark backgrounds. The colors are some of my daughter's favorite - making it easy (as you can see) to match them to her pictures!  My title is made up of Foam Stickers in a fabulous script font.

Black is a big part of this collection and I wanted to make use of it with the other colors.  Having it in my title was a good start.  I also used the buffalo check paper for my layout border.  Additionally I cut out some tags from hat same paper and tucked those underneath my pictures.

Any time Simple Stories includes flowers in a collection, I gravitate to them.  This collection has flowers in all shapes and sizes, including chipboard, ephemera, stickers, and of course patterned papers. I used them for this layout to create a border beneath my pictures.  By adding foam adhesives, I was able to have a variety of dimension throughout.
