Life Documented | Simple Stories

Hello Friends!

I am here to share a Life Documented spread featuring the So Fancy Collection!

I must admit this is one of my all time favorite collections. I love the colors, the gold accents and that fuchsia has my name all over it ;-) A great collection for layouts and of course Life Documented!
When I started my spread I had pictures that I wanted to use and they honestly matched perfectly with this collection!

This spread is from the month of June 2015. The bleeding hearts were in full bloom, my husband and I enjoyed some travelling around, we had a yard sale and I found a typewrite for 10$ at our local antique store.

Here are a few close up pictures of the left hand side of my spread. - I added some stitching, and used paper tape on lots of my journal cards.

as you can see if a journal card doesn't have any lines for me to write on I add them myself with a black marker. I also like adding paper as a mat on most of my photos and cards.

the right side of my spread -

Here are a few pictures of my filler cards. I cut a few cards and layer them on top of each other. Adding paper tape and a staple is easy and cute too!

I hope you enjoyed my Life Documented post today and I hope you enjoy creating with Simple Stories!

Handmade With Love | Jillibean Soup

I must admit, I love anything HandMade. My aunt use to be really crafty as I was growing up and I always remember her giving something " Hand Made " during the holidays. We all loved her gifts of tole painted dolls, cross stitch masterpieces, and little mini dolls she use to sew. I try to give atleast one hand made gift to my family during the holidays. I find it means so much more than something store bought.

Here is a card I created for Jillibean Soup using the new Sew Sweet Sunshine Soup Collection.

She's Rad | Bella Blvd

My niece is growing up so fast ... My goodness! I like to think that she's pretty RAD! She makes me laugh and Iove that comedic quality about her. 

I used some Bella Blvd Invisibles on this page but first I cut out a piechart with my silhouette and filled in the empty slots with invisibles! I sewed them on and created a pretty cool black and white background, I didn't want the page to be just black and white so I used the " Just Add Color Collection " and added some pop of color on my page. I just used one sheet of paper - Daily Details and cut up pieces of paper to fit my page. Love that! 
I framed my white background with a black piece of cardstock and added some paint splats. The title in pink was perfect and using the Amorie and Sienna chipboard alphas make it so easy to make a cool title!

Supply List
Bella Blvd 

Just Add Color:  Daily Details, Treasures & Text Stickers, Trinkets Full Color Stickers,
Invisibles: A Day At A Time, Click!, Referee, Brilliant
Sienna Chipboard Alphas:  Frosting
Amorie Chipboard Alphas: Peep
Enamel Dots: Blueberry

You Will Be | Bella Blvd

I found this picture of my niece that was taken last summer. Every time I see her, I love her even more.

I created this page using the new Bella Blvd Family Frenzy Collection. The dress she is wearing in this picture had some flowers and colors that I wanted to pull and use on my page. Instead of creating using patterns I selected the opposite side of the paper and created may layout using simple patterns and great colors to match.

The Double sided papers from Bella Blvd make it so easy to create with simple patterns and lots of color ! Perfect match for this photo !

supplies Used:

Family Frenzy Collection; Daily Details, Borders, Donut Day, Here We Grow, A Lot Going On, Treasures & Text Stickers, Little Bits Stickers
Enamel Dots; Blueberry, Guacamole
