Follow Your Heart | Simple Stories | Life Captured

Tuesday 25 October 2022

Hi everyone, here is the first layout I’ve made using the Life Captured Collection by Simple Stories. I adore the colours in this collection and there are so many lovely phrases that are perfect for everyday life.

I’ve made traditional 12x12 layouts with this collection but it would also be perfect for pocket style scrapbooking.

For this layout I have chosen a sheet from the 6x8 Paper Pad and made this the feature of my layout. The phrase ‘Follow your heart’ is on a clipboard. I fussy cut out the clipboard and distressed the edges.

I love the soft pink ledger paper from the 12x12 paper collection and chose to use this for the main part of my background. I trimmed it down a little, and used a notebook border punch to create a border down the left side and then mounted it onto a sheet of white card, at an angle.

I layered the Follow Your Heart clipboard with two of the Chipboard Frames and also added my photo, mounted onto more patterned paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad and a noticeboard ephemera piece from the Bits & Pieces.

I embellished the layout with Chipboard Stickers and more ephemera from the Bits & Pieces pack, including paper tabs, flowers, a globe and hearts. I also used a few stickers from the Cardstock Stickers: three phrase stickers and the long scalloped blue border sticker – I cut this into sections and placed them either side of the pink background to give a pop of colour.

I finished off with a little bit of journaling and some splatters of white paint.
Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
