Awesome Autumn | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Country Harvest

Monday 16 August 2021


Hey everyone! I am excited to be creating with the Simple Vintage Country Harvest collection today by Simple Stories. I started to really enjoy autumn collections last year and I’m really looking forward to this coming Autumn so I can use more of this beautiful collection!

For this layout I started off with one of the papers with large printed cluster of elements on the left side. It was on a dark background and I was concerned that was a little too dark for me to work on, so I decided to fussy cut around the large elements, and add a different background by slotting a new paper under the elements. I left the dark border and love the result.

I wanted to bring the printed elements to life rather than them being flat. Fussy cutting around them worked well but I took it one step further but cutting around the top sections of the individual elements, distressing the edges and adding foam pads. This gave the effect of all the elements being individual rather than one large printed section.  I also added other chipboard pieces to this side.

I wanted to mimic the large left cluster with another cluster on the right side of the page. I added a photo to a circular chipboard frame but this ended up being slightly too big so I’ve saved that for another layout. I choose one of the Chipboard Elements to go on the right, added Harvest Bits, Bits and Pieces and other foam stickers and cardstock stickers.

I added a photo at the bottom of the left cluster and my title ‘Awesome Autumn’ using a combination of a foam title sticker and a little word sticker from the Sticker Book.

I finished off the layout with some small foam stickers and decorative brads. The resulting layout is possibly a little busier than I had originally planned but I love it just the same.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
