Such A Fun Day | Simple Stories

Today I'm sharing another page I created with the Carpe Diem Scrapbooking Collection from Simple Stories. So many options with this collection for creating layouts or projects. I focused on the yellow and also a bit of turquoise. My nieces and I were playing outside one day and decided to get some paint and make a big mess outside on a huge canvas. We had a great time and that included a bit of paint on our faces! It was the best day!



Have I ever told you I love Bits & Pieces! Yes, this layout was based on tons of little diecuts and stickers. I couldn't help myself they're all so cute and went so well with Megan's happy face and turquoise paint splats!


I played with some diecuts and kept layering with chipboard, washi paper tape and of course dimensional adhesive. I added some journaling on a small piece of paper that was cut from a 4x6 journal card. Don't be afraid to cut out shapes or adding pieces from the 3x4 or 4x6 cards on your pages.


I love sewing on my pages and wanted to show you that you can sew or create your own stitches without a sewing machine. Get yourself a ruler to keep things straight, a black marker and draw a few lines on the edges of your paper to resemble stitches. It's that easy! Don't be afraid to mess it up, even real stitches aren't perfect ;-)


I wanted to create a fun title. I had so many little bits on this page that I wanted to keep it colorful and funky. I added the "Captured" journal card behind the Yellow Dotted paper and added "such a" with the alpha stickers on the Expressions Cardstock Sticker Sheet. I added the word "fun" created with my silhouette cameo. I used the word " day " from the Fundamentals Sticker Sheet that was combined with Brand New Day! I was ok with breaking up that title to create my own.
