Simple Stories ~ Hello Today #3

Hi! It’s Anna back with you today with the Hello Today collection by Simple Stories! You can find the collection in the shop here.

This is my final layout with this collection and next month I will be back with some Disney Magic for you!

For this layout I’m using up some scraps from my previously used patterned papers. I decided to go with a circles theme and as the layout progressed gradually more and more circles began to appear! To begin with I’d imagined just a cluster in one area of the layout, but now we’ve got a whole page full! Does this happen to anyone else? I hardly ever end up sticking with what I have planned for a layout!

 I also had 4 pictures to potentially use to begin with, but as the page progressed with more circles, I planned to cut it down to two pictures. But I still really wanted to use the last two, so I ended up incorporating them into the circles! 

I punched out a variety of sized circles using punches. There are a selection in the shop here

I then used a selection of the chipboard and combo stickers to embellish on and around the circles. I also added some stitching to some of the circles and raised some of them on 3D foam pads. I also added a thread tangle and distressed some edges too.

Thanks so much for looking!

See you next month!

Really love this! Such a creative way to make a striking background. Very inspiring.
Oh and yes I'm completely with you - I never have a plan when I sit down. The final layout is always a nice surprise!
