Take A Hike!

Take A Hike!

Hello!  It's Jennifer on the blog today to share with you another awesome collection by Simple Stories! The new Happy Trails line is perfect for documenting your favorite outdoor activities or a fun vacation!  I used photos from a hike our family did while in northern Michigan!  

I  love anything with woodgrain print so I  wanted the B side of Happy Camper to be a majority of my background. I  also added the bright yellow print of The Great Outdoors as well as the fun floral print of Back to Nature.  When creating my layouts, I  feel that you can add complimentary prints even if its a strip of paper here and there. 

I  am loving that Simple Stories is offering both a Journal and Icon Bits and Pieces in some of the collections.  This means more selection for your projects!  I  usually go through each one to pick out what I  think I  would like to use on my page. The floral clusters  from the Icon Bits and Pieces caught my eye. I  knew I  wanted to incorporated them especially since they compliment the floral print of Back to Nature. I  adhered them around the cute tag from the Journal Bits and Pieces using pop dots on a couple for dimension. My title is the adorable hiking boot and can be found on the 6x12 Chipboard.

At the bottom corner of my photo, you can see I  utilized another floral cluster as well as added two of the typed sentiments found on the 

Combo Sticker sheet.  You can also see this is where I  snuck in additional prints; using a border punch is a great way to add a small break in the focal line. I  also adhered a very small strip of the beautiful plaid of Lakeside, using my sewing machine to stitch through.  

I  added a small strip of the B side of Back to Nature at the right edge of my page again stitching through with my sewing machine. 

The Combo Sticker sheet offers many diverse accents such as sticker tabs or different sentiments to add to your photos or underneath journaling. 

Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I  hope this inspires you to document about a favorite outdoor memory using Happy Trails or another great Simple Stories collection! Have a great day!
