Hey Crafty Girl - This is my Happy Place

Hello Karen C here again with another scrapbook layout using the gorgeous Hey Crafty Girl collection from Simple Stories.

A couple of year ago, after many, many years of crafting either on the dining room table or my bedroom floor and having craft supplies scattered throughout the house, I finally got my own craft room. It really has made a difference and the Hey Crafty Girl collection was perfect for scrapbooking some photos of the room.

I started by gutting a sheet of the Made With Love paper and in the centre attached a sheet of white Bazzill cardstock which I had trimmed to approx 11" x 11". Onto the white cardstock I layered a piece of the remaining Made With Love paper, and strips of the Crafty and Happy paper and some pink cardstock. I machine stitched around the edges of all the papers with white thread.

Two 4x6 photos were matted on white cardstock and then placed on the layout with foam underneath to add some dimension. I cut out some of the 2x2 elements and used these to embelish the layout. Stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet were also added.

There are some great phrase stickers on the sticker sheet which are perfect for a layout like this.

A banner sticker, which by coincidence is very similar to how I display some of my scrapbook layouts in my craft room, was stuck beneath one of the photos. 😀

To add some texture to the layout I added some organza ribbon and pink wooden buttons and also scattered a few black sequins around the layout.

A white paper doilie was tucked behind the photos and to complete the layout I die cut the title from some black cardstock and attached this just above one of the photos. I also used some tiny black stickers to add the date.

I hope that I have inspired you to take a look at the Hey Crafty Girl collection and I'll be back again soon with another project.

Take Care
