Happy | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Lemon Twist

Tuesday 7 June 2022


Hi everyone, here is a new layout for Simple Stories using the beautiful Simple Vintage Lemon Twist collection. This collection has been re-released because it was so popular last year! I’m very happy to see it again and I loved it then and I think I love it even more now!

For my first layout I chose to use a white background. I cut apart all the elements on the Journal Elements paper. I love these papers and the Journal Elements one is often my favourite as the cards are all different sizes with a mixture of patterns and journaling spots. I thought I would feature these cards on this layout.

I laid down a large strip of the aqua gingham paper (oh my heart, it is so pretty!) and then layered the journal elements on top. I distressed the edges of all and also machine stitched around a few.

I added small amounts of ink to the top and bottom of the large cluster using ink pads and an ink blending tool. I like how this extends the pretty colours.

I used one of the Chipboard Frames too. I backed the apertures in white paper from the Simple Vintage Basics Kit and then layered my photo on top.

For my embellishments I’ve used lots of Foam Stickers, Floral Bits and Bits & Pieces. I’ve also used stickers from the Cardstock Stickers and the beautiful Decorative Brads.

I finished with splatters of black paint.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping!
Niki xx
