Leanne | Simple Stories Layout...

Hi there Sassy Friends! This month I am playing with the gorgeous Simple Stories Let's Party collection! I am so excited as this collection is perfect for all things celebratory!! LOL! However, The first project I am sharing has nothing to do with a birthday, as you'd clearly expect, when first glancing at these products. It just goes to show how versatile Simple Stories can be. *grin*


"High Five"

My first instinct with this collection was to go with colour rather than theme. Since the 'orange' in the photo needed to be high lighted, I layered patterned papers and selected embellishments that would help me achieve this goal.


The story behind the photo is mostly about the icy poles my son was enjoying on a hot summer's day. The Simple Stories Let's Party Chipboard frames created a great focus point on my layout not only to draw the eye across the page but to also zoom in on the embellishments that embraced my story.


To balance out the top right hand cluster, I fussy cut an image from the 3x4 Journaling Card paper, and layered it with Lil' Snippet labels from Elle's Studio and a flair from Greatest View. Of course it is totally appropriate that I use the Elle's Studio collection name on the page, as it is also my son's name! I definitely take opportunities when I see them! LOL!


More of the Elle's Studio labels were used among my main cluster layers. Notable the title label - "High Five". Again it was colour that helped me with this decision, matching the denim of his shorts and linking the visual triangle of navy blue around the page.



Finally, a few splatters of black paint directly onto the cardstock creates depth. Plus by adding the paint, I like how it grunges up a boy scrapbook page without my clean style going AWOL.


This collection is quite perfect for scrapbooking boys and their everyday adventures, even though it focuses on celebrating birthday events. Thanks for visiting..x
