Hello, Simple Stories friends! It's Jana Eubank. I've been playing with the Hello Today collection and wanted to share my latest layout with you!
This collection is bursting with color and happiness! It reminded me of the silly-fun my two daughters have together, so I chose to work with these selfies they snapped with one another while running errands.
I used a sheet of Mint Color Vibe cardstock as the base of my layout. I printed the photos in black and white to really let the cheerful colors and patterns of the Hello Today collection shine. Aren't they amazing?!
I matted each photo with a different patterned paper, then stacked up snippets of other patterns and Element cards behind the photos to create one large, layered photo mat.
Next, I cut out several label shapes from the Element card side of each paper to use for my journaling. I was so happy when I realized I had a rainbow of labels to use, and stacked them up in rainbow order to the side of my photos.
Instead of a title, I chose to fussy-cut my daughters' initials from the monthly Element Cards. I accented the monograms with more fussy-cut designs. I finished off each cluster with a few Enamel Dots and stamped asterisks from the Hello Today 6x8 Clear Stamp.
The result is a super-FUN page that makes me smile! I had a blast playing with this collection and I know you will, too! See you next time! Jana
