Happy Monday Simple Stories fans! I hope you had as restful and productive of a weekend as I did. Although by the calendar, summer may be a month away, summer has arrived here in the Valley of the Sun with triple digit temperatures and constant blue skies. That also means that I'm on break and staying indoors with my air conditioner. So, what better time to play catch up on all the Project Life layouts I have yet to complete. Even though I've fallen WAY behind, I love the concept too much to give up. With Simple Stories divided page protectors and elements system though, I don't have to worry!
I know I've said it before, but I love the ability to mix and match the various lines together. For Week 5, I combined the brand new Summer Fresh (loved the denims), Documented (love those neutral tones), and the Destinations (what better line for a week of traveling) lines together.
This top section was created by first cutting the Summer Fresh pattern into a 5x12 size. Then, I used the Simple Stories/Unity map stamp to create the background. I layered a Destinations border sticker along the top. I then cut an Elements Border strip from Destinations and adhered to the top so that the end result was a 6x12" background. A few stickers, photos, and staples (my favorite embellishment, I think) and voila.
For this section, I used a 4x6 vertical Element from the Summer Fresh line. I didn't really do much except exacto cut the little ribbon/banner piece so that it would overlap the photo rather than be underneath it.
This section was also created with the Summer Fresh 4x6 vertical Elements. Again, so simple, a few added stickers and staples and I was done.
So, if you are falling behind on your own Project Life albums, don't stress about it! Just grab your Simple Stories lines and go to town. Don't be afraid to mix "seasons" and "themes" either! Look how well Summer Fresh fit with the winter photos of my Week 5. There are no rules. So, just scrap and enjoy.
