Always There for Me (Simple Stories Vintage Bliss)


Last week I shared sneak peeks of the projects I did as the May guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook. I worked with the beautiful Main Kit, shown above, which features Simple Stories gorgeous Vintage Bliss collection, along with embellishments from Basic Grey and Maya Road. The reveal of the kits took place yesterday so I'll share my projects, in full, over the course of this week.

The first project is a layout featuring a photo of me and my Mom on my wedding day. I created a pocket, to the right of the photo, using a piece of pink polka dot paper. Because the pocket holds a journaling tag, I sewed the paper to the page to reinforce it.


I loved the Basic Grey mini bottle caps so much I used a trio of them on this page, two as flower centers and one as the tab on a tag.

The butterflies are cut from a piece of patterned paper and adhered to the page with 3D foam squares to give them some lift. I also gently bent the wings back to add the look of motion and dimension.

Here's a look at how the page came together:

1. The base of the page is built upon the horizontal piece of plaid paper.


2. The matted photo and pocket are adhered to the page. The pocket is sewn on.



3. Embellishment layers are added to the photo and the pocket.



4. Another look at the finished page with the title now added and embellishments added or tweaked a bit. 


Thanks so much for visiting today. I'll be back tomorrow with another kit layout to share.
