Greetings, my friends, and welcome to the Simple Stories blog! I'm thrilled to share with you a delightful layout that features the *The Little Things* collection. The layout beautifully displays a series of photos documenting the fun memories of my son and me enjoying ourselves while lacing beads. Pictures like these are truly remarkable and have beautifully captured some wonderful memories.
To create a backing for my photos, I cut a piece of the *Enjoy Every Day* paper to a size of 4 1/2 x 6 inches and then arranged the photos to overlap slightly. (Photos measurements-1 5/8 x 3 1/2 inches)
With so many beautiful, patterned papers in this collection, selecting a few pieces from the 6x8 patterned paper pad was easy to create chevron shapes using a diamond punch. After carefully adding hand stitching along the edges, I adhered it to the left side of the page.
I couldn't go past using some gorgeous Floral Bits and Pieces for embellishing. I created two beautiful floral clusters. I added one to the photos' bottom right-hand corner and placed another in the top left. I also used some foam tape to add dimension when adhering the flowers and created a beautiful frame around my design using some hand-stitched, and I love how it turned out.
For my title, I chose one of the lovely Foam stickers that I really liked and placed it below the photos. Underneath the title, I included a Chipboard Sticker phrase along with my journaling to tie it all together.
Thank you so much for joining me here on the blog today. I hope that you've found some inspiration!
Yvette xoxo
