Hello Simple Stories Friends! It's Nathalie with you today bringing you a bit of ACORN LANE inspiration. The weather is finally changing, and we are about to welcome Fall here in Canada. I am so ready for all the leaves, pumpkins, and cozy feelings that come along, especially now that the new Acorn Lane collection has arrived! This new collection is Fall perfect, and you are going to love it all. Let me show you what I have created:
My starting point for the layout was the chipboard frames (it is always one of the first pieces I open from the collection packs). I decided to use the double frame, but change the formation of it a bit, that meant that I cut it in half to separate the frames, then stacked them on top of each other. I backed the frames with a few selfies, and set them aside while working on the background.
For my background, I wanted to create something that would showcase the beautiful patterns and colors of the collection, while keeping the images as a focal point. I decided to cut a large rhomboid from the center of the 4x6 Elements. In order to emphasize the angles of the shape, I decided to cut a few strips of Color Vibe Boho 6x8 Paper pad, and Acorn Lane 6x8 Paper pad and glued along the edge of the cut out shape. Then, I backed the empty space with a piece of the Happy Harvest Paper
I attached the frames to the center of the page, and covered the seam of the cut frames with one of the layered chipboard stickers. I then used pieces from the ephemera packs, stickers, and chipboard stickers to elongate the leaf design.
I used a combination of Ephemera pieces and cardstock stickers to create the title for this page. I placed this at the bottom left corner of the photo frames. I added one of those cute birdie embellishments to the top of the title -couldn't resist how cute the birds in this collection are!-. A few scattered enamel dots and adhesive brads complete the look of the page
The new ACORN LANE collection from Simple Stories is Fall perfection! The colors, designs, and icons will make your Fall documenting a breeze! I cannot wait to see what you create!
