Hello Simple Stories friends, it's Jen today with a special project using the fabulous Noteworthy Collection. I was really drawn to the 6x8 patterned paper that looks like several tabbed file folders and used it as the base for my design.
After selecting the B side of the February patterned paper as the foundation for my project, I splattered a bit of ink on it followed by a rub-on. Next, I fussy cut the 6x8 paper that has file tabs on it because my goal was to give the look of a drawer with file folders in it.
When creating the "drawer", I used 6x8 wood-grained paper as the base. I then began adding the fussy cut tabs with foam tape to give dimension to the project. The index card chipboard frame was perfect for the layout, so I used it as the base for my photo and tucked it in among the other file tabs.
Again, I wanted a lot of dimension on this project, so I tucked several embellishments in between each of the layers to add more color and depth.
I love using my manual typewriter for journaling, but smaller pieces of ephemera can be difficult to maneuver. To alleviate this issue, I put a sticker on white copy paper, fed it through my typewriter, and fussy cut it when done. Problem solved!
I finished the layout with a foam sticker title, decorative brads, and enamel dots.
Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope you have been inspired to document your special memories with the new Noteworthy Collection. There is no doubt that I will be using it again as we get closer to meeting our first grandchild.
