Hello everyone, Niki (@nikiclairecreates) here with you today with two new layouts and process videos using the Simple Vintage Lakeside collection. I really enjoy working with the Simple Vintage collections, they are so beautiful and packed full of gorgeous icons.
I started off with a dark patterned paper with pretty foliage and butterflies. I drew a large circle centrally then cut this out. I distressed the edges of the circle and then backed it with a sheet of green paper from the Simple Vintage Lakeside Basics pack. I used foam pads around the edge of the circle to give it plenty of dimension.
I mounted two photos on the black and white striped paper and then set about layering them onto the layout. I used two of the Chipboard Clusters, overlapped slightly, as the base for my photos. I added plenty of Bits and Pieces, Nature Bits, Foam Stickers and some Decorative Brads around this area too. I particularly love the signpost that reads ‘trail’, ‘lake’ ‘lodge’. I also totally love all the ducks!
At the top opposite corner from the photos, I added another small cluster in order to balance out the large one with the photos. I love the wooden rounds that have phrases on. I chose the one that says, ‘time to unplug’ and arranged that together with a mushroom and some leaves from the Bits & Pieces pack.
I added a chipboard title that says ‘just add water’ – how awesome is that! I finished off with splatters of white paint and I also handwrote my journaling below the title. Here is the link to the process video if you would like to watch how this layout came together: https://youtu.be/kUNbJ6E3bU4
For my second layout today using Simple Vintage Lakeside, I started by adding my photo into one of the Chipboard Frames. I layered the frame with another frame, offset behind it. I also added a layer of patterned paper.
I chose a sheet of Simple Vintage Lakeside Basics paper for my background. I always love working with these as they are solid colours with beautiful, printed textures on them. They are my favourite thing to use for backgrounds! I trimmed it down and distressed the edges significantly. I then mounted this onto a sheet of the checked patterned paper from the Lakeside collection. I love the brown and green tones.
I positioned the frames onto the layout and tucked in lots of leaves from the Nature Bits pack. I also added Foam Stickers, some icons from the Bits & Pieces pack and some Chipboard Stickers too.
I love phrase stickers so added a few of these at the top of the layout. These also served to cover up a random person in the background of my photo!
I added a few of the beautiful Decorative Brads, created another small cluster at the bottom of the layout and handwrote my journaling.
I also added a title using the two different fonts from the Simple Vintage Lakeside Sticker Book. I outlined the letters with a fine-liner pen to make them stand out better against the background. I finished off with a few splatters of white paint. Here is the link to the process video for this layout: https://youtu.be/V1HKcXwZrSM
I hope you have enjoyed seeing these two layouts! Make sure to check out the Simple Vintage Lakeside collection, it is so beautiful for all your lake photos!
