Nathalie with you today to share a bit of inspiration featuring the gorgeous HAPPILY EVER AFTER collection from Simple Stories. Weddings are some of the most joyous occasions, especially when shared with your loved ones. A few years ago, we traveled to my native Ecuador to attend my cousin's wedding. We loved being part of the celebration, and I am so glad, the new collection arrived, so I can finally start documenting the grand day and vacation.
This is probably the best picture of my cousins after they got married. I wanted to make sure they were the focus of the page, so I opted for a simple and soft background for the page.
I started with a cut file from Handipaper. This was cut twice from white cardstock, and I backed it with papers from the 6x8 paper pad.
To build the page, I trimmed the Now and Forever paper to 11x11inches. I created a scalloped border at the opposite side of the floral border. In addition, I trimmed a 12"x3" strip from the We Do! paper, and used the same punch to create a border. These two were layered so that the scallops meet at half point, giving the edge movement. These were glued to the b-side of the 2x2, 2x4 elements.
The cut outs were set as a cascade from the top left corner of the page. I love how the brads bring a pop of shine to the page as the centers of the florals. I kept the layers simple, just framing the photo with a 6x4 card, and adding a few embellishments from the collection.
The large gold foiled foam word stickers are perfect to create titles for your projects. I simply added a few more embellishments around the title to complete the page.
I cannot wait to continue working on bringing the rest of the memories to live using the gorgeous new Simple Stories HAPPILY EVER AFTER collection. Make sure you check it out!
