Hello everyone. Chantalle here, and I would love to share some recent projects with you, capturing some sweet outdoor moments. I have used new releases Cabin Fever and Summer Days which are both perfect for your summer adventures!
You Are My Sunshine
This page uses the bright and breezy Summer Days. I love this new collection with its infectious brights and fun elements. The watermelon is a fave for sure!
For a bit of fun, I have created some subtitles on the ‘So much Fun’ background paper using some co-ordinating alpha stickers from a pack of Sn@p Color Vibe Lights.
I love the way these stickers add a bit more detail to the page without being too distracting. I lined them up with the help of a light ruler but you could also line them up on the very edge of a plastic ruler and then place the ruler down carefully in your desired area, to transfer them.
The striped pattern also helped make lining things up a breeze. In between the colour bars, I have added some more details in the form of ephemera and phrase stickers. The super cute sunglasses shapes matched my photo perfectly, so I cut some larger sized ones from a sheet of the 4x4 Elements in three different styles and colours.
I quite like to group matching colours on my projects. Creating with Simple Stories is such a joy as everything co-ordinates so perfectly!
I’ve cropped my photo in a circular shape for something different. Using Circle Photo Crops makes cutting your photos to size a cinch!
For a final flourish, I have added some embroidery style stitching around my title stickers. I think it helped it stand out a bit more against the colourful elements.
This next page, 'Call of the Wild’ also celebrates fun moments outside.
Cabin Fever is amazing for those camping times, getting out and about times or just nature times! Living in Queensland where we have pretty much gorgeous weather for most of the year, I can see myself using every last bit of this collection! I’ve used a vertical design and grouped lots of fun elements together to show off the photos of a wonderful day we spent enjoying the Gold Coast Hinterland this Summer.
The tree and mountain elements called out to me for this project so I nabbed a few larger size ones from the Cabin Fever 4x4, 3x4 and 4x6 Elements pages. I always look forward to seeing these papers in Simple Stories collections as they are full of extra bits and pieces to cut out if you need some more of a certain shape or for a journalling spot etc. Value and versatility in one! The compass was also cut from the 4x6 Elements page. I added a little brad in the centre for a bit of extra detail.
I also loved the muddy boot track and tree stump chipboard stickers!
Thanks for joining me today!
