Bug Hotel | Simple Stories | Full Bloom Collection

Saturday 12 March 2022


Hey everyone, here is a new layout for Simple Stories using the beautiful Full Bloom Collection. This collection is full of beautiful spring colours and super cute icons. It is perfect for Spring or any outdoors photos I think!

I have a photo of an amazing Bug Hotel which we saw in the grounds of a Country House. It was not so much of a ‘hotel’ but more like a castle!!

The beehive paper was perfect for this, and I decided to cut away some of the squares in the centre to create an abstract shape. I wanted it to represent all the nooks and crannies that the bugs hide in. I made it a reasonable size and then added some yellow bits around the shape too. I backed the shape with orange paper.

I added my photo together with some of the new Floral Bits. I’m so happy to have these as I love floral ephemera! I tucked several behind my photo together with a chipboard cloud.

To make my title I used the alphabet stickers from the Full Bloom Sticker Book. I mounted them onto white card and trimmed them out. I then added the words to the layout raised on foam pads. I then used embroidery thread and two long stitches to ‘cross out’ the word ‘hotel’ and handwrote ‘castle’ underneath. I added bees buzzing around the title and stitched their little trails in gold thread.

I added more Floral Bits around the outside of the shape together with cute chipboard snails, beehive and a sign that says ‘garden’. These are just so adorable!

I finished off with handwriting my journaling and adding splatters of white paint!

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
