Hello, Simple Stories friends! It’s Jen today with my first project as a member of the 2024 Simple Stories Design Team. I am so excited for the opportunity to work with this amazing company and amazing creatives for another year.
First up is a layout using the new Simple Vintage Love Story Collection, which could not be more perfect to document my daughter’s recent engagement.
When creating this project, I began by using paper from the 12 x 12 Vintage Basics Kit with the Love Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink. After stenciling the background, I added further depth and detail with the coordinating rub ons.
Next, I created a focal point for the photos by backing them with patterned papers before adhering them to the background. I chose to use black and white pictures to keep with the classic look of the collection. Above the photos, I selected a patterned paper from the 6 x 8 Pad, rounded the corners, and added the title using Foam Stickers.
I love the vintage typewriter embellishments in this collection and used one from the Big Bits with my typewriter to add journaling. Of course, I made a couple of errors when typing, but they add to the overall charm of the project (at least that is what I am telling myself).
Embellishments were next, and I used several pieces from the Ephemera and Floral Bits packs as well as from the Sticker Book. Last, I added Washi Tape to the top and bottom edges and splattered black ink onto the background.
Here’s another look at the finished 12 x 12 layout. It is so sweet and captures the special moment so well.
The Simple Stories Simple Vintage Love Story Collection is classically beautiful and perfect for documenting your special stories! Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope you have been inspired to create.
