Explore | Simple Stories | Trail Mix Collection

Monday 24 July 2023


Hi everyone! Here is a new layout for Simple Stories, using the awesome Trail Mix collection! Now, my family aren’t really campers, but this collection makes me wish we were! It’s packed full of fun prints and icons that are outdoorsy and camping themed. The colours are just gorgeous, fun plaid prints with some muted colours, coupled with pops of bright! I love everything about it.

For this layout I choose one of those gorgeous plaid prints for my background. I trimmed it down a little and added it to a sheet of white. I splattered white paint onto the background and set it aside to dry.  I then selected another patterned paper, a multi coloured plaid print with flower clusters. I cut this into a circle and cut a small circle out from the middle. I then cut it into pieces, so I had a divided circle. I distressed the edges of each piece and then reassembled it back into a circle shape on my background.

I cut my photo into a segment shape and added it to one of the segments. I then added some of the Patches Bits to the circle. I arranged these in clusters, one above my photo and one to the bottom right of the circle. As well as the Patches Bits, I also added some floral clusters from the Cardstock Stickers, Foam Stickers and Decorative Brads to each cluster.

I used ‘Explore’ from the Foam Stickers as my title. I love the size, font and fun colours on this! I added a few more stickers from the Cardstock Stickers – some of the phrases, which I distressed the edges of and raised on foam pads.

I also used the long cardstock boarder sticker from the Cardstock Stickers, which I cut into two pieces and added to both side of my layout, offset and unequal, just to give a bit of added interest to the side edges of my layout. I finished off by handwriting my journaling.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping!
