Tinseltown Fun

Tinseltown Fun
Hello, Simple Stories friends! I hope everyone’s summer (if it is indeed summer where you live) is off to a great start and you are enjoying the warmer weather. In my mind, summer invokes images of days by the pool and going on family vacations. Today, I am sharing a layout using the new Say Cheese Tinseltown and Say Cheese Magic collections.
These new collections are great when documenting trips to one of the Disney parks, but they can also be used in many other ways. This project features a photo of my daughter Abby posing by the Dear Abby star on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.
When creating this layout, I primarily used papers and embellishments from Tinseltown but also added a few from the Magic collection. To begin, I cut white cardstock down to 8.5 x 11 inches and adhered it to the polka dot patterned paper. I then curled the edges upward and crinkled/tore them to give more texture. Next, I cut a chipboard frame in half and tucked the pieces under the white cardstock on the left and right sides of the project.
Continuing with the background, I cut the film strips from patterned paper and placed them on the white cardstock with washi tape between each one. Before placing the photo, I splattered black ink diagonally across the layout.
Once the photo was in place, I added embellishments on the left and right sides of the picture - choosing those I felt best represented Hollywood - before using foam stickers to create the title. Because I chose not to journal on the layout, I added a date stamp below the title.
To emphasize the Dear Abby star, I placed arrows pointing from my Abby’s name to the photo along with pennants and speech bubbles.
To complete the project, I tucked decorative brads and enamel dots throughout.
Here is one last look at the finished layout. It’s a bit busy (I feel as if I always say that), but I loved the embellishments so much that I just kept adding them.
The Say Cheese collections were so fun to create with, and I have been busy digging out other photos to use with them, including lots of pictures that were not taken at a Disney Park.
Thank you so much for visiting today, and I hope you have been inspired to create!

    Investment is one of the best ways to achieve financial freedom. For a beginner there are so many challenges you face. It’s hard to know how to get started.
