Hello Everyday Life! by Nathalie DeSousa

Hello Simple Stories friends!

Happy New Year to you all! Nathalie with you today to share a new project featuring the gorgeous HELLO TODAY collection.  Let's talk about the perfect collection: it must have pretty paper, lots of functional embellishments, a colorful palette, lots of cut aparts, and awesome stamps... well then we you are going to love this collection as much as I do! So versatile that you can document all your memories and create cards, pocket pages, etc. Let me show you what I have created.



I love the new HELLO TODAY collection, and luckily I received the entire collection and add ons, so I was able to pick pieces from all the things to create this simple but colorful page!



As soon as I saw the chipboard frame with the paper clip on top, the idea for my layout just came to mind, a group of papers held together by a paper clip. So, I backed the frame with a black and white picture, and then layered pieces of paper from the 6x8 paper pad, Simple Card kit and Simple Pages kit. I glued this together messily and then attached them to the B side of the October paper.



To balance the papers, I wanted a very bold title. I found the large numbers in the Simple Pages kit, and decided to prop them with a bit of foam adhesive on a vertical line next to the papers. I love the colors and size of the ephemera!



To complete the title, I used a combination of foam stickers, chipboard stickers and alphas from the sticker tablet (a bit of foam adhesive helps to prop them on the page). The combination of colors, textures and sizes works great in this design. Once the title was down, I created a few more clusters of embellishments around the layout and tied them all together with butterfly stickers and die cuts.



Did I mention the collection has awesome stamps? I journal everyday, so these stamps are perfect! This time, I used the word, "Today", to bring the page together. Along the way, I also added small pops of color with some enamel dots...



I just love how easy this page came together in a short amount of time. The messy papers and the bold title just complement each other. I hope you check the new Simple Stories' HELLO TODAY collection, you are going to love it (and even hoard it!)
