Hello Simple Stories friends, Becki here, to share two layouts with you that I created using the Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden collection. This collection is absolutely gorgeous. I couldn't wait to dive in and make a project...or two. The Farmhouse Garden collection has a beautiful vintage vibe. I wanted to see if I could make one layout that had a clean, simple feel and one that had a distressed, vintage feel.
Let’s start with a clean and simple design. Recently I’ve loved the quilted look so I decided to create a quilted border with 2x2 pieces of patterned papers from the Farmhouse Garden 6x8 paper pad. I used a patterned paper from the Color Vibes collection (Aspen White/Notebook) as a neutral background.
The teal paper from the Farmhouse Garden Basics paper pack made the perfect mats for my photos. I used a 6x4 photo as well as a 3x4 photo. The journaling is hand written on a cut apart card and tucked behind the photo in a hidden pocket.
To keep this layout simple and clean I used white thread for all the stitching and kept clean lines throughout the layout. I used chipboard and die cuts from the card kit to embellish the layout. The bold, beautiful title is “together” from the Farmhouse Garden Foam Stickers. I am SO happy with how this layout came together.
For the second layout, I wanted to stick with the vintage, distressed vibe of the Farmhouse Garden collection. When I opened this collection, I fell in love with the black and white gingham patterned paper and knew that I wanted to use it as a background. I layered two more papers with distressed and stitched edges before I created the rest of the layout.
To add to the distressed, vintage vibe I added little bundles of black thread behind the embellishment clusters that I created with stickers, layered stickers, and foam stickers.
I had so much fun creating these two layouts with the Farmhouse Garden collection. Whether your style is clean and simple OR distressed and vintage, this collection is for you.
Thanks so much for joining me today! Happy crafting, friend!
