All Smiles Here! by Becki Adams

Hello Simple Stories friends, Becki here, to share a layout with you that I created using the Simple Vintage Lakeside collection. This collection is gorgeous, earthy, and full of my favorite color, green. I immediately knew that this collection would be perfect for telling the story of my daughter and her cousin going fishing with their dads and grandpa. 


My favorite thing in this collection are the beautiful plaid patterned papers. I fell in love with the brown and green plaid. I knew that it would be the perfect backdrop for my photos. The top ¾ of the page is covered in that beautiful plaid. I added a thin border of wood grain patterned paper and added a strip of green tone-on-tone paper along the bottom. This combination of patterned paper made the perfect backdrop for my layout. 


I fell in love with the chipboard frames in this collection as soon as I took them out of the package. I used two wood grain frames to make my photos stand out. Simple Stories chipboard frames are a personal favorite of mine. So are the page pieces. I often use page pieces to create my titles. They’re always perfect!



On either side of the chipboard frames, I created two embellishment clusters with layered stickers, foam stickers, bits and pieces, and lots of foam adhesive.

The beautiful embellishments and patterned papers made this layout come together in just a few minutes. I love it when that happens! 



I am thrilled with how this layout came together. I cannot wait to document more of our outdoor memories with this collection. If you have any lake/mountain adventures planned for this summer, this collection is a MUST HAVE! I also cannot wait to see what YOU create with it. Happy crafting, my friends!!
