Happy Day | Simple Stories NSD 2021 Instagram Hop

Thursday 29 April 2021


Hi everyone, I have a new layout to share today for Simple Stories. I’m using the Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden collection which is a beautiful new collection that should be arriving in stores very soon. Today’s layout is actually to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day 2021 and the Simple Stories Design Team are having an Instagram hop. Head over to the Simple Stories Instagram account to begin the hop!

For this layout I wanted to feature some of the beautiful patterned papers from the Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden collection. I choose three and cut them into large blocks. I tore off the strips and then machine stitched around each panel before attaching to my white cardstock background.

I then decided I wanted to make some of those pretty pinwheels. The farm we went to and are at in these photographs have lots of them dotted around so I thought they would be a great embellishment. I used the coordinating Basics Kit papers and cut these into squares in different sizes. I snipped the corners and then brough the points into the middle. I secured them with machine stitching and added them to my layout before adding an adhesive Decorative Brad in the middle of each – I love how these turned out”

I then embellished the layout using chipboard, ephemera from the Garden Bits and the Bits & Pieces packs, layered stickers and stickers from the Sticker Book.

For my title I added the word Happy from the foam stickers and Day from the sticker book letters, I finished off with a few black paint splatters.

I really love how this layout turned out and the pinwheels in coordinating colours are super cute!
Thank you so much for joining me today and enjoy the Instagram Hop from the Design Team!
Happy scrapping
