Sweet Life | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Lemon Twist

Monday 26 July 2021


Hey everyone, here is a new layout for Simple Stories using the absolutely stunning Simple Vintage Lemon Twist.

I decided to showcase one of the background papers for this layout together with an enlargement photo. I had my photo printed in 12x12 size. I carefully cut around the elements on the background paper and slotted my photo under those elements so that they framed the large photo. I did this on both sides. I started off using a craft knife and then reverted to scissors to trim around some of the detail. I had to trim my photo down to slot it in and also so I was left with a paper border.

Once my photo was in place, I secured it on the back with tape and raised up some of the elements overlapping the photo with foam pads.

I then began to add extra embellishments. Over on the right I added two tags both tied through with ribbon and twine. I also added a couple of tickets which I stapled in place.

On the left side I added chipboard elements, floral Bits & Pieces and some banners saying ‘bee sweet bee kind’ and ‘you are the sweetest’.

I added my title at the bottom of the layout using a combination of a Foam Sticker word and a Chipboard Sticker word.

I dotted decorative brads all around the layout and added some sticker hearts, raised up on foam pads. I finished by machine stitching around the outside of the layout three times to form a border.

I love how this layout turned out! The big photo and the beautiful Simple Vintage Lemon Twist collection make for a big impact!
Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
