Hello friends! Its Jennifer on the blog today to share a layout I  created with the very beautiful Simple Vintage My Valentine collection! The prints are soft with gorgeous florals and whimsical hearts.  You not only have the traditional red and pinks you would find in a Valentine line but also coordinating pretty light blues and greys. 

I  began by matting the B side of Be Mine to the pink and white heart print of the back side of the 2x2 Elements.  Then from the Simple Basics Kit, I cut a 7x11 piece of the Lace Dots and adhered to the center of my page to break up the type print.  Just over the top I adhered a 6 x 10.75 piece of the beautiful floral of the B side of Just A Crush.  

Before adhering my embellishments and photo, I  used a border punch on the plaid of of the B side of Love Struck.  I  then used a strip of the gorgeous floral from the My Valentine Washi Tape.

My title is from the 6x12 Chipboard which I  layered over a ticket sticker from the Combo Sticker sheet as well as a small strip of the blue heart Washi Tape.  I  also loved the teal blue chipboard heart so I  added that for accent. 

Since the Layered Frames did not fit the photo I  wanted to use, I  decided it one would be perfect to frame my journaling!  I  cut one of the cards from the 3x4 Elements and adhered it under my frame.

I  matted my photo onto white cardstock and affixed it with pop dots to so it would lay even with my Layered Frame. I  tucked another fun 3x4 Element under my photo then a layered this "LOVED" ticket and floral cluster to accent.  

At the top left of my layout, I  added tags found in the Bits and Pieces and on the Combo Sticker sheet and affixed both upside down.  I  added bakers twine from my stash as well as popped up this beautiful die cut butterfly.  I  thought the little "all my heart" chipboard sentiment was a nice added touch.

Hello friends! Its Jennifer here on the blog to share another awesome collection from Simple Stories!  The new Hey Crafty Girl line is perfect for your DIY projects and layouts all about your scrappy girl getaways!  The mint greens with turquoise, pinks, and yellows are beautiful! I  am a big fan of ledger print paper so I  began with Create Beauty as my background. I  then adhered a large piece of the multi-colored Crafty & Happy to the center of my page followed by thin strips of the B side of DIY Queen to each side. 

For my title, I  used the die cut out sentiment "I'm So Crafty"  from the Bits and Pieces and adhered it with pop dots to add dimension. Using my Silhouette, I  cut out floral pieces in white cardstock to layer under my title and embellishments (Bloom by JustNick).  You can see the floral cluster and mint scrapbook also found in the Bits and Pieces. 

Under my title, I  added the fun "eat.sleep.craft.repeat." sentiment as well as a small journaling spot from the Journal Bits and Pieces.  These little accents are a nice way to add more to your title or make notes about your layout. 

This particular journaling spot caught my eye due to the pretty plaid pattern around the edges as well as the delicate floral cluster at the corner. I  added the pink typewriter from the Bits and Pieces  as well as additional floral clusters.  

At the top of my photo I  added additional  ephemera such as this fun sign sentiment "Get Your Craft On".  I  will usually use pop dots/foam tape on at least one piece to add dimension to my page. 

From the Combo Sticker sheet, I  placed  the wood grain scallop border sticker just left of the center patterned paper.  I  felt this was a nice way to add balance to my page as well as fill white space.  You can also see the cute button stickers I  placed as accent (of course adhering one with a pop dot!).

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share with you another fantastic Simple Stories collection!  Winter Farmhouse is full of eye catching prints and embellishments that are perfect to document your snow activity photos!  Honestly, I'm not a big fan of the cold weather but I do love a good winter line!  And Winter Farmhouse does not disappoint! I  began with the beautiful wood grain print of the B side of Feelin' Frosty as my background.  I  then layered a few of my favorite prints across the center of the page:   both prints of Cuddle Up and the plaid on the B side of the 4x6 Elements.

Using plaid white cardstock, I cut a snowflake wreath using a cut file from the Silhouette shop and adhered it around my photo ( #238513 by Paige Evans).     As a focal point, I   used one of the larger journaling spots from the Journal Bits and Pieces then adhered the cute yellow gingham heart with pop dots.  For my title, I  used the "hello winter" sentiment found on the 6x12 Chipboard as well as added the yellow mittens from the Bits and Pieces

Underneath my title, I  added one of the smaller journaling spots which are the perfect size to add the date.   You can also see one of the many die cut snowflakes that I  added around my wreath to accent. 

I  adhered die cuts from both the Bits and Pieces packs around my wreath using pop dots on a few to add dimension. I  love the contrast of the yellow gold against the blues and greys of the background print. 

Here, I  utilized the snowflake die cuts to accent my wreath as well as this adorable "sled rides" sign. 

I  love the little red cardinals found in the Bits and Pieces. I   had to adhere one to the top of my wreath as they always remind me of my mom.
