Ben-isms | Lottie Loves Paper | Simple Stories Bro & Co

Friday, 31 July 2020

 
Hey everyone I have a new layout and video for Lottie Loves Paper today using the new Bro & Co collection by Simple Stories.
I wanted to document all the funny things my husband says wrong...it's a running joke in our house about his 'Ben-isms' and I had this photo of him hiding from the camera (illegal photos he calls them!) so I thought I'd have a go at this today. I've used the striped paper to add paper strips to the two edges of my layout. I love the look of a small width of horizontal stripes going down a vertical edge so this paper was perfect. I added a contrasting colour too. This left me lots of white space in the middle of my layout for my photo and all the words.
My initial plan was to add lots of the words from the Phrase Stickers but after I'd added lots I then didn't have any room for my own words! So I took them off again. I did keep some - I really love the font of those phrase stickers and the best thing about them is that they are foam - chipboard tends to ping off easily whereas foam has a flexibility to it meaning that my titles will stay exactly where I intended them, hurrah! I added my own words using black Thickers from my stash and I wrote my journaling under each one to explain what they mean as they definitely don't make sense on their own!

I finished off with ephemera, stickers, metal brads and some Bramble Fox hearts in black. I also added some enamel dots.

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed this layout. Don't forget that you can pick up the fabulous Bro & Co collection from the Lottie Loves Paper shop.

Happy scrapping
