You've Got a Friend in Me | Simple Stories Howdy! Collection

Tuesday 29 June 2021

Hey everyone, here is a new layout for Simple Stories using the super cute Howdy collection! This collection is adorable and so perfect for any budding cowboy!

I started off with a white background and four photos of my little boy dressed as Woody from Toy Story. He loves those movies and I have lost count of the number of times I’ve had to sit and watch them with him…I know all the words now!

I wanted to incorporate that fabulous stripy paper onto my layout so cut a large section of it. It started out at the bottom of the layout but ended up at the top! I added my four photos along the line and then added a fussy cut skyline across the join. I love the paper with the skylines on it: saloons, hotels, sheriff offices, banks – super fun!

I love the ephemera piece from one of the Bits & Pieces packs that says ‘you’re the rootinest, tootinest’ because I know that saying so well from watching Toy Story 2 and the Woody’s Roundup show! Since using this piece I ended up singing that jingle for the rest of the day! So I added that piece, and a couple of tags cut from the Tags paper. I angled them down and tied one through with ribbon.

My title is ‘you’ve got a friend in me’ which is, of course, from the Toy Story movies too. I made this title from the Woods set of Color Vibe alphabet sticker book and the navy Color Vibe Foam alpha stickers.

On the right of the layout I created a cascade down to the bottom with a chipboard horse, ‘wild west’ arrow and some more of the cute buildings and cactus at the bottom. I finished off the layout by adding little chipboard pieces, some decorative brads and puffy stickers.

This layout turned out so fun! I love using all the themed cowboy pieces and are perfect for these cute photos of my lovely boy.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
