Halloween | Simple Stories

Hello Friends!
 I am sharing a layout today using the Happy Halloween Collection from Simple Stories. It is a Simple Set which means it contains 6 sheets of a paper and a 6x12 sticker sheet. These kits are perfect for layout classes and creating 2 page layouts as well!

I used this kit to create a page of my cousin's daughter dressed up for trick or treating a few years ago. I love the colors and patterns in this kit and they just work perfectly with my pic too! Halloween is such a fun time of year. I love scrapbooking fun faces and spooky places ;)

 With this layout I wanted a fun title but not black or simple.
I really liked the 4x6 element card and wanted to use the word "Halloween"for my page title.

I did some fussy cutting and added dimensional adhesive to the back of the letters and created a fun title. These are easy to do and with a little patience you can create your own! We have several possibilities with this sheet of paper with title that could include October 31 / Trick or Trick / Boo / and more!

Here are a few more pictures of my layout.

Hopefully you'll find some inspiration on my layout
and create your own fun title using our element cards!

October Preview | Your Next Stamp

It's time for a Sneak Peek of Your Next Stamp's October Release my friends!
This release is filled with super cute Holiday Stamps. If you are a stamper or scrapbooker you will NOT be disappointed by these cute images. They are also so easy to color and as a beginner in stamping believe me - they are so much fun!

Today I am featuring a super cute set called Home for the Holidays.

I used Distress Oxide ink for my background with a cloud stencil. I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Someday I will learn how to use Copics but right now I'm quite comfortable with my Zigs.

Fall Memories | Simple Stories

Hello Friends! 
I am sharing a layout using the gorgeous fall collection from Simple Stories called Forever Fall.   I wanted to showcase the papers from this kit and of course the assortment of colors.  The photo is of my niece and a back to school picture. It was perfect for this collection of pinks, blues, and of course the burgundy flowers.
I used a patterned paper for my background instead of a piece of white cardstock. Creating a few layers using strips is a great way to add details and the ability to use more than one piece of paper. 

I did some sewing on the FALL chipboard banner. This helps them stay in place but also adds some texture to the page. The scalloped strip is from the sticker sheet.

Adding some extra touches to the Fall banner are stickers and also chipboard pieces surrounding the picture.  I placed dimensional adhesive on the photo and some of the embellishments.

This layout is super simple and can easily be duplicated. Once you get your Forever Fall collection try a scraplift of this layout. If you do please share it with me! @KristineDavidson. Also please visit @SimpleStories_ on social media for behind the scenes, design team projects and so much more!

Enjoy those fall days!
