The Little Things | Simple Stories | The Little Things Collection

Tuesday 25 July 2023


Hello everyone, here is a new layout for Simple Stories using the gorgeous The Little Things Collection. I’m loving this collection, it is quite generic and very versatile and easy to use, full of pretty colours and florals, it is a really lovely collection to work with.

I adore scrapbooking with yellow – it’s just a bright happy colour that makes me happy, so I decided to use that beautiful yellow floral print as a large part of my background. It’s quite busy so I wanted to pair it with some white space, so I trimmed it down to 8½” wide so there was a large white area on either side. I paired this with the lilac patterned paper from The Little Things collection which is what I mounted my photo with, and I also added torn strips of this down each edge of my yellow floral paper.

I created three clusters on this layout, each contain similar repeating elements: flowers, butterflies, and phrases from the Always Remember paper. I fussy cut several of those phrases, distressed the edges of all and raised them up on foam pads. I love the contrast of black against the yellow and lilac, it really makes them pop off the page!

For my title I used ‘the little things’ from the Bits & Pieces pack. Again, I distressed the edges and raised this on foam pads. This helped it stand out against the busy floral background. I added a few Decorative Brads, handwrote my journaling down the right side of the layout and then splattered the clusters with black paint – again that pop of black contrasts so well with the bright yellow, I love the result of this combination!

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping!
