Hello Today from Simple Stories by Adam - Back Again!

Hi! ScrappyAdam back again with another Hello Today layout! I am loving this collection and still have some left so you'll see yet more soon!

For this layout I really wanted to use a couple of the chipboard frames and faffed for a ridiculous amount of time trying to decide what to do! In the end, I place one to the top left and one to the bottom right. I decided on papers and went with the 'March' paper as my main background and a strip of 'July' paper to the left. I also teared a little strip in the top right corner and pulled the corners back, stapling each side down and popping a scrap of rainbow paper behind to give a pop of colour and some added interest and texture! I matted the photo on a sheet of the paper and added a tab and label sticker and word sticker. 

I really wanted to get an extra photo on the page so the frame to the bottom right is attached with a traditional style brad (rather than an adhesive brad) from Simple Stories 'Going Places' collection. This frame then twists and turns to reveal a second 6x4" photo underneath! I'd originally planned a shaker pocket so the frame does have a sheet of acetate on the front!

Then it was a case of diving into the stickers and ephemera! I used the 'Hello' foam sticker and placed this on the photo to the right, inside the frame. I popped some of the bits and pieces above this photo too along with a foam heart and enamel dots and a little adhesive brad. 

On the photo to the left, I popped a couple of adhesive brads on the flowers that are part of the chipboard frame, some bits and pieces and a sticker from the 12x12 sticker sheet

Finally, below the left photo, I used various bits and pieces, journal bits and pieces, enamel dots, puffy stickers and adhesive brads and layered various embellishments.  I finished it off with one of the lovely hearts from Cocoa Vanilla's Daydream collection!

That was me done for this layout! Thank you so much for having a read, I really appreciate it! Please do take a look at the Papermaze store - so many scrappy goodies with new stuff arriving all the time, especially all the fab new collections on their way!

Take care, stay safe and I'll see you back here soon!
