Sunshine | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Lemon Twist

Monday 26 July 2021


Hi everyone, here is another new layout for Simple Stories using the Simple Vintage Lemon Twist collection. This collection really is so beautiful and I have loved creating with it! I love scrapbooking with yellow so was instantly drawn to the yellow gingham print paper. Gingham is my favourite type of print, so yellow gingham ticks all my boxes! I trimmed the this sheet down, distressed the edges and stuck it to a piece of white card for my background.

I then made a large rosette from folded paper. I cut three strips of yellow paper from the Basics Kit and scored them every ¼”. I concertina folded them and turned them into a large rosette. I stuck this to the bottom left corner of the layout overhanging the edges which I then trimmed off.

I then cut multiple circles using metal dies. I cut large ones with small circles cut out of them, off centre. I then backed each one with another paper and foam pads, which created circular apertures. Inside the apertures I added Decorative Brads! I love the Decorative Brads so much and it was so fun to make a feature out of some of them.

I make another half-rosette out of another patterned paper which I stuck to the right side of the layout. I arranged all my other circles to link the two and added my photos. I built a cluster of embellishments around my photo including foam flower stickers and a tag tied through with ribbon.

I added a few more embellishments to the layout: stickers, Chipboard, a layered sticker and labels. I also added a title from the Foam Stickers pack.

I finished off with lots of hearts raised on foam pads and a few splatters of white paint.

I love how this layout turned out, I think it’s really pretty and the colours are just so completely awesome! Happy sunshine everyone!

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
