Sweetest | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Lemon Twist

Tuesday 7 June 2022


Hello everyone, here is another layout made for Simple Stories using Simple Vintage Lemon Twist. For this layout I was actually inspired by a friend who was sat next to me at the time. We were scrapbooking together and she had cut her paper into two pieces and had them stuck to each side of her layout with a gap in the middle. For some reason this just sparked creativity for me and after asking her permission to do the same, I was off! I love it when inspiration just strikes like that!

I choose one of the beautiful yellow papers from the Simple Vintage Lemon Twist collection to feature on my background. I trimmed it down and cut it up so I was left with two pieces of equal height but different widths. I positioned them either side of the white card background. I added zig zag machine stitching to the black lines on the paper.

I added my photo to one of the Chipboard Frames and added a cute journaling card to the other aperture. I positioned this onto my layout and the build a large cluster to the left side. I used Floral Bits, Bits & Pieces, as well as Foam Stickers and stickers from the Cardstock Stickers.

I used the Foam Sticker title ‘sweetest’ for my title which I stuck to the bottom of the frame.

I felt the layout needed something to balance out the large cluster on the other side, so I used a card cut from the Journal Elements paper as the base, and then added Foam Stickers, Chipboard Stickers and Floral Bits there too.

I added several of the small hearts from the Foam Stickers, a few Decorative Brads and some label stickers. I finished off with a few splatters of black paint.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you have enjoyed my Simple Vintage Lemon Twist layouts!

Happy scrapping

Niki xx
