Just Add Water | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Lakeside

Tuesday 2 August 2022


Hello everyone, here is a new layout for Simple Stories, using the Simple Vintage Lakeside collection. I really enjoy working with the Simple Vintage collections, they are so beautiful and packed full of gorgeous icons.

I started off with a dark patterned paper with pretty foliage and butterflies. I drew a large circle centrally then cut this out. I distressed the edges of the circle and then backed it with a sheet of green paper from the Simple Vintage Lakeside Basics pack. I used foam pads around the edge of the circle to give it plenty of dimension.

I mounted two photos on the black and white striped paper and then set about layering them onto the layout. I used two of the Chipboard Clusters, overlapped slightly, as the base for my photos. I added plenty of Bits and Pieces, Nature Bits, Foam Stickers and some Decorative Brads around this area too. I particularly love the signpost that reads ‘trail’, ‘lake’ ‘lodge’. I also totally love all the ducks!

At the top opposite corner from the photos, I added another small cluster in order to balance out the large one with the photos. I love the wooden rounds that have phrases on. I chose the one that says ‘time to unplug’ and arranged that together with a mushroom and some leaves from the Bits & Pieces pack.

I added a chipboard title that says ‘just add water’ – how awesome is that!

I finished off with splatters of white paint and I also handwrote my journaling below the title.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
