Who doesn't love a great travel collection? Simple Stories' has another hit with Travel Notes and today I'm sharing a layout I created documenting a fun trip to Seattle!  This line has bold colors and prints with a multitude of embellishments to choose from! Plus, many of the B side patterns can be used for just about any theme!    

The ledger print of Travelogue makes a perfect background for my page!  I  then layered contrasting prints like the navy blue/white cabana stripe of See the World behind my photos.  For my title, I  was instantly drawn to this stacked "adventure" phrase from the Bits and Pieces pack! Using a few small pop dots, I  gave my title some lift to add dimension to my layout!

​I  incorporated many of the fun patterns into my page by using a few different sizes of my circle hand punches! The small circles  found on the 4x6 Stickers were perfect to add in as accents; I  even used a pop dot on a few for added dimension! Layering some of the smaller sentiments such as the "explore" from the Bits and Pieces are a great way to add contrasting colors! And of course, the sentiment stickers are one of my favorites!

You can see more of the layered circles; a few I  added stitching around the edges with my sewing machine. The 6x12 Chipboard Sheet includes a few fun, colorful circles that were perfect to layer with my larger circles! I  also included a small journaling strip from the Bits and Pieces to stamp my date!

Hello friends! Jennifer here on the blog today! I  hope you are enjoying all of the fabulous new collections debuted at Creativation last month! I'm sharing a layout I created with the lovely Bliss!  I'm so in love with the soft colors and prints of this line!  I  had to use woodgrain print with little burst of color of Live in the Moment as my background! 

​This collection has so much beautiful goodness in the embellishments!  The black and white chipboard pieces such as the "bliss" script and butterfly are a perfect contrast to the colors! Bliss has not one, but TWO washi tapes included in the collection!  You can spy both the Butterflies and Black Speckle Dot Washi Tapes layered among the stickers and Bits and Pieces die cuts!

I  am a fan of layering my embellishments and was happy to see lots of floral clusters included in the Bits and Pieces pack! The 4x6 Stickers also have many small embellishments to accent such as the small circle stickers and the gorgeous sentiments (which have always been a long time favorite!)

Hello its Jennifer and I'm back to share another page I  created using the Romance collection!  There is so much about this line to love: from the die cut hearts to the delicate floral prints!  For my second layout, "XOXO", I  did a traditional Valentines page and documented photos of my children from their classroom parties. These are definitely sweet memories for me since both kids are out of elementary school!

I  love to cluster my smaller embellishments together such as the die cut hearts from the Bits and Pieces pack. You can also see one of the gorgeous floral clusters from the Combo Sticker Sheet.  I  have always been a dimensional scrapper and use pop dots with my die cuts, as well as mix in chipboard pieces such as the small butterfly. One of the many reasons why Simple Stories rocks is the variety of embellishments! I  love having choices!

How cute are these  "XOXO" letters that are found on the 6x12 Chipboard sheet?  They make for a great title accented with coordinating stickers and chipboard pieces!

​One of the 4x6 Sticker sheets has small "washi" type strips of patterns that are perfect to layer! Here, I  used two along with the Forever Washi Tape to accent my photo followed by stitching through with my sewing machine!
