Smile | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Essentials Color Palette

Friday 17 May 2024


Hey everyone! Here is my layout using the very gorgeous Simple Vintage Essentials Color Palette. I LOVE gingham! And decided to use ALL the colours!

I used the 6x8 Paper Pad and selected one sheet of each design, 12 colours in total. I trimmed them down a little and then scored at ¼” intervals, then concertina folded. Some of the pieces I scored at ½” intervals, so as to add a little extra dimension and interest.

I then arranged the concertina pieces into an uneven circle and stuck them down using a hot glue gun. This was a little tricky and took a bit of time and manoeuvring of the pieces! But it was a fun process and I adore my wonky circle! It was never supposed to be uniform but it isn’t quite how I expected as I wanted more difference in the length of some of the pieces but I’m still happy with how it turned out!

I then felt I should keep the remainder of the layout quite simple, so I added my two photos to the middle without any borders or layers. I then tucked in some Bits & Pieces, and some words from the Foam Stickers. I added these embellishments in a colour-on-colour fashion, so green embellishments on the green segment of the circle, red on red, etc.

I finished off with a few heart stickers from the Foam Stickers and splatters of black paint.

I love how this turned out, it is so colourful and fun! Process reel on my Instagram!

Happy scrapping
