I'm sure you all are loving the new releases from Simple Stories revealed up at the past CHA summer show and two of those collections were Harvest Lane and Take a Hike! I worked with both of these collections on my project and actually combined them both in this project share titled "Take the Journey". Both collections speak together in colors, patterns, and also shows you how well the Simple Stories concept works in documenting the journey in the page protector format in a cohesive way! Many times I'll grab & cross mingle collections in one project and they are just always "on-point" in matching up!
In this project I used the elements of Simple Stories along with random bits of lots of stamping and details to highlight the theme and mood of the album...a masculine blend with the outdoorsy. Hope that makes sense! :)
A bit into this album.....My boyfriend, Vincenzo (Enzo for short), is Italian and lives in Austria and he is quite the adventurous with skiing, fishing, scuba diving, an amazing "green thumb" in growing roses, and just enjoying the outdoors and quite just the landscape seeker. So, in essence, these collections were the perfect backdrop in putting together my album plus the colors are pretty magical for autumn too! He's coming to visit me in November here in the States where I live on the Gulf of AL, so I'm sure more adventures... :)
Also, the 6x8 Mix & Match Simple Stories albums are just perfection for weekend trips, sweet journeys new & old, and capturing the everyday.
Oh, and Sn@p will be bringing that into an entire new level of cool.ness.
So, without further chatter chatter from me....
Hope you enjoyed the peek into my album & I'll tag back this weekend to answer your questions (I saw a few in the Part 1 of 2 post) & such in your comments (along with the posting of the supply list)!
Yes, I use lots of product...but it's how I roll.... :)
