Year 7 | Simple Stories | Life Captured

Tuesday 25 October 2022


Hi everyone, here is another layout using the new Life Captured Collection by Simple Stories. I’ve made another traditional 12x12 layout, but this collection is also perfect for pocket-style scrapbooking, so if you do that then you should definitely check out this collection!

I decided to scrap a school photo of my daughter. She’s just started secondary school and was the only one from her primary school to go there, so she knew no one. She’s so brave and confident, and when I saw a whole page of noticeboard affirmations in the Life Captured Sticker Book, I knew these would be perfect on a layout about her and her new school journey.

I stuck all the affirmations onto some white card and trimmed around them so they all had white edges. I selected two papers from the Life Captured 12x12 papers, the blue ditsy heart paper and the kraft with white dots. The blue pattern was perfect as the photo has a blue background so this worked well.

I added my photo to a clipboard ephemera that was from the Journal Bits and then started arranging all the elements onto the layout. I trimmed down both the papers and arranged them, offset, onto a white card background. I then arranged the clipboard and 11 affirmations onto the layout in row formation – it reminds me of a giant noticeboard!

I embellished the layout with lots of stationery items that I selected from the Bits & Pieces and Chipboard Stickers. I popped these up on foam pads to give the layout lots of dimension.

I made my title using the little tile stickers from the Sticker Book which I stuck onto white card and trimmed out. I also used the number ‘7’ from the Bits & Pieces.

I finished off by handwriting my journaling and adding some splatters of white paint.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
