Hi everyone it's Anna here. Welcome back to the Papermaze blog where today I have a layout to show you using one of the latest collections from Simple Stories ~ Hello Summer. I love this collection it's bright, colourful and perfect for summer photographs!
Take a look at the latest Simple Stories collections here, and a closer look at the Hello Summer collection here.
So here is what I am working with this month...
And here is my first layout..
I was inspired by the Who's ready for summer? patterned paper to fussy cut two of the words to create a title, above and below my photograph.
I also fussy cut two flower clusters from the Paradise Found patterned paper, which I placed either side of my photograph along with a doily, a Freckled Fawn arrow paper clip, Pink Fresh Studio Word Stickers and some Doodlebug Sprinkles.
I then cut strips of paper from the Life Is Good paper and the Just Chillin' paper and layered them up together under and above the large words.
After I took the photos above, I added in some stiches using some coordinating orange thread to match my son's t-shirt, which pulled in the colours from the photograph.
Thanks for looking! I'll be back later in the month with another project using the Hello Summer collection.
Have a lovely bank holiday weekend, hopefully with lots of sunshine!
