Hey, Crafty Friends! by Becki Adams

Hello Simple Stories friends, Becki here, to share a layout with you that I created using the Let’s Get Crafty collection. Crafty friends, this collection is for YOU!! It’s full of gorgeous bold colors, adorable crafty themed icons, and beautiful patterned paper.



The first thing I did on this layout was sketch out my idea and lay all of my elements out on the page so that I could hand stitch a portion of the title. I used the chipboard phrase “crafty” and hand stitched the word “friends”. The hand stitching is done with black DMC embroidery floss. I used all six strands to make sure the title stood out from the patterned paper background. 


With the title below the photo, I added embellishments around the bottom left corner of the title and the upper right corner of the title. Each section has a few embellishments of various sizes, colors, and textures. I absolutely love the stack of planners below the journaling and the scissors to the left of the title. They’re SO cute!! I also printed my journaling on a tag that I fussy cut from the tags patterned paper. 


One thing that I did on this layout that I don’t do very often is to stitch with black thread in my sewing machine. Most often, I just stitch with white thread. I felt like this collection called for black thread. I love the pop of black throughout this collection. 



It was so fun to play with the “Let’s Get Crafty” collection. I cannot wait to keep creating and document even more crafty memories.



I’m thrilled with how this layout came together. I can’t wait to see what YOU create with this fun crafty themed collection. Thank you for stopping by the Simple Stories blog today. I’ll see you again here very soon. Happy crafting, my friends!!
