Hello, Simple Stories friends!
It's Yvette on the blog today, and I have a new layout to share using the beautiful Color Vibe collections. I combined different elements and pattern papers from various Color Vibe collections to document my son's bike-riding skills after he removed the training wheels.
I started with the Color Vibe cardstock-Birch/White Grid pattern paper as my background. Next, I cut out a few 1x1 squares using the Color Vibe Dark pattern papers and arranged them diagonally on my layout. I wanted to add some texture to the squares, so I added a large stitch X on some of them.
I matted my photos using the Color Vibe Textured Cardstock- Pumpkin and Terracotta. Then I adhered the pictures in the middle of the layout, slightly overlapping them and placing them at a slight angle.
I used the beautiful Color Vibe Flower Bits and Pieces as embellishments and layered the flowers from the different Color Vibe collections to create some unique flowers. Once I had assembled the flowers, I added some of the Color Vibe Buttons to the center to complete the look.
I created a beautiful floral cluster at the bottom of the photos using the flowers I made using the Color Vibe collections. I also tucked some of the leaves from the Color Vibe Flower Bits Collection in-between the flowers, added a smaller cluster in the top left corner of the photos, and adhered some with foam tape to give the clusters some lovely dimension and interest.
I decided to use the HAPPY DAY Foam Stickers Titles from the Simple Vintage Essentials Collection for my title and place it between the flower clusters.
Now I need to add some butterflies amongst my flowers. So, I drew a few butterflies onto some of the Color Vibe 12x12 patterned papers, cut out the hand-drawn butterflies, distressed the edges, and glued them in place. I added some enamel dots to complete the layout.
Thank you so much for joining me here on the blog today. I hope that you've found some inspiration!
