Hello Simple Stories friends! This is Gloria Parra here today to share a layout using a collection that has me totally in love! The Little Things collection is perfection in every possible way! The colors, the embellishments, the motifs, the phrases, everything friends, I just LOVE IT!!!
I started this layout with a white color vibe textured cardstock as my base. Since the patterned papers in this collection are all too gorgeous, I decided I wanted a way to display all of them on a layout. So, I went for a kind of patchwork background design to place in the middle of my layout.
From the 6x8 paper pad I cut a bunch of 3x3 squares and arranged them on my white cardstock, in a way that looked pleasing to my eye and trying to use the colors and patterns to balance my design. I then machine stitched all my little squares and distressed the borders a little. I love the texture and homemade feel that stitching and distressing adds to my layouts…
I adhered my squares leaving a thin white border on all sides, that way it looks cleaner and lets the reader appreciate every single pattern without being too busy.
I am a huge chipboard frame fan, so I decided to use the pink strawberry frame for this layout and placed my two photos of my little girl inside of it. A match made in heaven!!
I then created two embellishment clusters on two corners of my chipboard frame to lead the eye of the reader. On this clusters I placed flowers from the floral bits pack and some stickers from the collection kit. I love adding dimension in my clusters, so I used lots of foam adhesive to make my layout more interesting.
I then used a journaling spot that I cut from one of the elements patterned paper included in the collection kit. I typed out my journaling and placed it on top of my frame.
For my title I used a foam sticker that says “Lovely Day” and added a camera chipboard sticker to it.
Hope you like this colorful and full of texture layout, it is one of my favorites!!! Grab this collection ASAP and start documenting those everyday moments with it, it is such a fun and versatile collection, I'm sure you will love it and give it a lot of use!
