Sweet Smiles | Simple Stories

Hello Friends!

I played with the Oh Happy Day! Collection from Simple Stories this week and excited to show you my layout. The colors for this collection are so bright and vibrant - gorgeous for summer pics! I wanted lots of colors on this page and well maybe I over did it with embellishments cut I couldn't stop! I used a picture of my friends girls enjoying a day outside together. They are the cutest gals and have "sweet smiles!"


I started creating this layout with a white cardstock base. I wanted to add a cut file but wasn't sure where and what I wanted to do so I took this circle one and added the bright pink patterned paper behind it.
I added a piece of yellow paper about 8x12" and sewed the cut file on top of it. I did some messy sewing for this one. I wasn't worried about straight lines.


I added some other papers to the sides of my layout - 3 different ones actually and sewed them as well. Adding some diecuts from the Bits & Pieces package was really easy. I took mostly the flowers and hearts with a few other misc items such as sunglasses,  and the camera. I formed small clusters surrounding my cut file and well maybe went a little crazy with the hearts and enamel dots.
All these gorgeous colors I couldn't stop!


To create the title I used the Sweet and Smile words from the Bits & Pieces package - I was lucky enough to have an extra package and used the S from another word in the package to create Smile(s).
To add some dimension and give it a contrast on the white cut file I used a black brush marker and traced the edges of the words. This gave me a bit of black detail and kind of make the title stand out a bit more. I of course added dimensional adhesive on the back of my words.


Are you ready to get your own Oh Happy Day collection pack? It has so many awesome papers and fun diecuts too.  Hopefully I gave you a bit of inspiration or atleast something to think about for your next layout. You can find more projects on our instagram accounts - @SimpleStories_ and @KristineDavidson.

Have a great day friends!
