Loving This! by Niki Rowland

Hey everyone! I have another layout and process video to share using Simple Stories Good Stuff. I have loved playing around with this collection and see so much potential in it for makes. Too many ideas and not enough time lol! 

My inspiration was really sparked by the set of numbers in the Journal Bits pack. Every so often I make a ’10 things’ style layout about my children. I haven’t made one for a while and decided that these numbers were perfect for such a layout. 



I used a sheet of white card for my background. I positioned numbers 1-10 onto my layout with my small photo of my boy in the middle section. I added a border sticker from the Cardstock Stickers to add a bit of interest to my white background. 



I layered my photo with the peach shaped journal spot from the Journaling Bits Pack. I also added the Right Now Foam Sticker and also added ‘Theo’ from the alphabet stickers in the Sticker Book. 



To each number I added a small journaling spot. Most of these came from the Journal Bits pack. Some are tags, some are very small tags and some are speech bubbles or labels. I wrote a fact about my boy on each one…these are the things I might forget about him when he grows up so it’s great to have a way to record them. 



I added a few other small embellishments to each number: Decorative Brads, Puffy Stickers and enamel dots. I finished with a few splatters of white paint. 



I felt that my white layout needed a border as it was all looking a bit too white, so I choose the most colourful patterned paper from the collection and trimmed four strips. I pieced these together mitering the corners to create a striped effect all the way around the edge of the layout.  Here is the link to my process video if you would like to watch along: https://youtu.be/wyWwv5Mr6ks 

I love how this layout turned out. Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
