Live Life in Color

Live Life in Color
Hello Simple Stories friends, it’s Becki here to share a scrapbook page with you that I created with the new Simple Vintage Color Palette. It’s no secret that I love to include COLOR on all of my scrapbook pages! 
Because I wanted to include a lot of color on this layout, I started with a white and cream background. This is the perfect background to add LOTS of color. I started with 1” strips of gingham patterned paper in a rainbow of colors. The photos that I chose for this layout are so cute! I want the attention of this layout to go directly to the photos. I designed the rest of the layout to enhance the photos.
I arranged the strips of patterned paper to draw your eye across the page, right to the photos. By adding the strips in rainbow order, that also adds a lot of color to the layout! 
After adding the strips of patterned paper to the background, I also stitched along the outside edge of the strips with my sewing machine and black thread. It’s such a fun way to add contrast to the background and tie in the black title. With such a colorful background and embellishments, a black title stands out against the background. 
Last but not least, I added embellishments in coordinating colors, meaning I added red flowers next to the red patterned paper, etc. This layout was so much fun to create and I love the final product! It’s so cute and tells the story that I wanted it too perfectly! 
Thank you so much for stopping by the Simple Stories blog! We’re so happy to have you here. I’ll be back with another fun project soon! Happy scrapbooking!
