Hello Love! by Nathalie DeSousa

Hello Simple Stories Friends!

Nathalie here to get you inspired with a new project featuring the new and super gorgeous HAPPY HEARTS collection. We all have that special someone in our lives, for me it is my husband! We have been together for 21 years but cannot get a good selfie for the life of us. So, I wanted to document our failed attempts at a decent picture on our latest anniversary in a beautiful way.



Love is perfectly imperfect, and that is how I feel about this page. I brought all the beauty of the collection to our imperfect photos.



I started by cutting a heart from Mint Color Vibe cardstock, then handstitched the edge with a matching thread. This just adds dimension and defines the heart space in the background. I used the b-side of the 2x2/4x4 paper to back the empty space of the heart. I then trimmed framed the layout with the Lots of Love paper.



I created photo slides of the selfies and glued them at the bottom of the heart. I love the florals in the Sweetheart paper; so, I fussy cut a few of the flowers and used them to decorate the heart, I made them look as if they are coming from under the heart and photos.



To make sure the pictures and flowers stand out in the layout, I added just a few embellishments throughout the page. There are so many cute embellishments it was hard not to add them all!



The large "Love" chipboard sticker was the perfect title for this page. I used a few foam dots to make sure to secure it to the page. To bring it all together, I added repetitive hearts and enamel dots around the page. I love the journal spots in this collection and used one of them to add my story.



I cannot wait to see what or who you document with the gorgeous HAPPY HEARTS collection. You are going to love how versatile it is!
