Beautiful Memories

Beautiful Memories
Hello crafty friends!
It's Nathalie here to bring you a bit of fresh inspiration featuring the gorgeous SIMPLE VINTAGE MEADOW FLOWERS collection.  The design and colors in this new collection will have you looking for all those special memories you want to document. The layered designs throughout the collection make it so easy to create your projects.  Let me show you what I have created for today.
 
I love how this layout came together!  I was inspired by the layered design on the page to bring the story to life.  My starting point was (and probably always is) one of the chipboard frames.  Once, I backed the frame with my picture, then it was all about adding pieces of patterned paper and ephemera behind it to bring interest to the page. 
 
 
Since I wanted all the layers to be showcased, I chose the Simple Vintage Meadow Violets paper for my background.  I love the piece of torn notebook paper showcased in the collection; so, I fussy cut it from the 6x8 paper pad and repunched the holes, then used it as the first layer behind the left side of the photo frame.  I continued adding pieces from the Ephemera, Bits & Pieces packs, as well as the sticker album.
 
 
To anchor the layers and photo to the page, I trimmed a piece from the Wild & Beautiful paper and set it on the center of the background.  I tore a few pieces of the washi tape and layered it under the edges of the paper strip before attaching the photo and layers to the page.
 
 
I added a few extra embellishments to the right top corner of the picture frame to help balance the page a bit more.   Just a few small pieces did the trick.
 

Though I love the sentiment in the chipboard frame, I decided to use that spot for my title placement.  I simply combined pieces from the chipboard and foam embellishments at the bottom of the picture frame.  To tie the entire page together, I distressed and folded the background at the top and bottom edges of the paper.  I used some of the washi tape to cover the empty space, then added butterflies to each of the edges.
 
 
I think I mentioned that I love how this came together.   I know you are going to love working with the beautiful Simple Vintage Meadow Flowers, too.  I cannot wait to see what you will create!
