This is Real Life! by Suzanna Lee

Hello Simple Stories fans! Suzanna here today to share with you a project created using products from the Simple Stories ‘Life Captured’ collection. This collection is a fresh take on the 2020 Hello Today collection with the monthly pockets pieces and general everyday life elements.



These photos are of my husband sitting in his home office, a year into the pandemic. Each of the photos is framed by a chipboard frame from the collection. I love the chipboard frames as they make designing really simple with all the layers that already exist.



Or, you can add more to those frames, as I have done to this frame on the right hand side of the page. Stickers from the Sticker Book make great little finishing touches or fine details to your pages. The Coral Foam Alpha Stickers from the Color Vibe collection coordinate perfectly with this collection for my title.



Below the frames, I have created a funny messy desk scenario, mimicking the chaos on Michael’s desk. By combining Chipboard Stickers with Bits & Pieces and Foam Stickers, there is lots of depth and dimension to the bottom of the page.



For even more layering and dimension (there’s A LOT of dimension on this page), I have layered a foam “yay” speech bubble sticker in the top/right corner of the smaller Chipboard frame and a red push pin in the top/left corner.



Here's a final look at the whole layout in its entirety. Whether you are a pocket page scrapbooker or create traditional layouts, there is something for everyone with this collection! I hope you’re inspired to check out the collection! Make sure to check out my process video below to watch this layout come together and hear my design decisions.
