Cheers! Simple Stories Simple Sets: Happy New Year

Monday 22 January 2024

Happy New Year everyone! This layout is for Simple Stories and I’ve used the Happy New Year collection, which is a Simple Set. The colours and papers in this collection are just fabulous and so fun to scrap New Year celebration photos with of course!

Now we don’t often get to go out for New Years as we have limited access to babysitters, but this year we actually managed to go out! We took the big kids with us and this was the first time they have ever stayed out until midnight to see in the New Year! We had so much fun, so it was great to scrap these photos! I took quite a lot of photos that night so decided to make a double layout. I don’t make double layouts very often, but I always enjoy making them when I do, so really I should do more!

I started with a double background of white card and I used two of the bright papers from the collection to create large blocks of colour on each side. I love the striped paper so much, it’s is so colourful! I also loved the numbers paper, again the colours are so bright and they look awesome against the black background. I fussy cut around the numbers to create a shaped border on each side.

I then added strips of the stripy paper across the layout as a base to put my photos on, and I cut up a few more of the stripes individually which I also placed on the background – but for these ones I rolled the ends – like a party blower!

I used stickers from the Cardstock Stickers to embellish my layout and used two titles from that sheet: ‘celebrate’ and ‘cheers’. I also cut up some of the 2x2 squares from one of the papers and used these as embellishments too.

I finished off with handwritten journaling and splatters of black paint!

Happy new year everyone!

Happy scrapping
