I am up on the Simple Stories blog today! My first blog post for Simple Stories! I would love it if you would go and leave some love on the manufacturer blog! There are two layouts, one using "I AM" and the other "Say Cheese II", two of the three new lines released at CHA.
This is by far a glamorous picture of me... But then again, passport pictures never are really. So why I would have expected at least a reasonable picture is probably unreasonable. I found this in amongst the pictures and it fit perfectly inside one of the little chipboard frames from the latest I AM collection from Simple Stories so I set to documenting the moment. Glamor and all!
I used the chipboard frames to as elements of my design with snippets of patterened paper within, almost symbolic of the compartments of our lives. Can't say the delineations are always so clearly defined in real life...
In order to have the die cut flower lay on the same plane as the background, I had to use foam dots under the parts of the flower not overlapping the chipboard frame.
You can see the grid'ish pattern created by the frames better here. And look! I ripped paper! Those of you who know how Type A I am will understand what a feat that is. Thanks to Core'dinations, I am getting better at such messy business!
I just LOVE the hints of gold that apper through out this sublime collection! This is my "go to" collection right now. I cannot tell you how many layouts I have created with this scrappy goodness... Nor will I as you will likely see each and every single one of them here on my blog! :)
What do you think of this collection? Are you a fan? I AM!!
