For You | Jillibean Soup


I am sharing a card with you today that I created for Jillibean Soup.
It is a shaker card and inside I created a little scene.
My first step was to emboss my card base just to give it some details since I was leaving it white - I didn't want to add color so this was the alternate for me to add details.
I created my background using some distress ink, stamped my little flowers and butterflies and cut them out using the coordinating metal dies. It wasn't complicated! I them finished it off by adding some sequins, nuvo dots and then added the shaker cover.





Supplies:
Jillibean Soup
Stamps & Die Set: Latte;
Shape Shaker Card: Jar;
Sequins: Green
Others: Distress Ink, Versafine Black Onyx, Glossy Accent;

Shine - You Got This! | Page Maps

The Simple Stories design team was asked to join PageMaps this month to reveal Becky's amazing sketches in conjunction with Simple Stories products.

Becky always seems to push Me. I love that she gives me multi photo sketches because let's be honest, i don't do them very often. I usually like the pages I create for her so it wasn't hard for me to volunteer for this reveal.

This is the sketch I worked with using Simple Stories POSH Collection and a pic of my sweet and sour nephew!



If you'd like to see more of what the team created please visit PAGEMAPS.com and view the reveal for September .. or Click Here!

Glow Learn Discover | Simple Stories

I am here to share my second layouts using the NEW Simple Stories Simple Set OLD SCHOOL. It was perfect for a few recent photo of my nephew being silly and excited to go back to school.   
This layout is called Grow Learn Discover.

I used the 4x6 journal element and cut it up to create my title. No hard decisions or doubts about a title. Nice and Easy! The one thing I really don't fuss over too much is a title. I usually find inspiration from a sticker or diecut from the kit. This was no exception. 


As you can see from the element sheet below - I cut out the clock, Used a 3x4 card to add details to my page.




This is a simple set collection and you get 2 sheets of 3 papers and a sticker sheet.
So you make the kit last by using some elements from one single sheet! GENIUS! Not really but it does help add details to your layout ;)

Back 2 School | Simple Stories

It was my turn on the Simple Stories blog yesterday and I just wanted to share my projects with you today.
I created 2 layouts using the OLD SCHOOL collection and this first layout is called Back 2 School.

Time for my niece to head off to grade 9. I still can't believe she's 14 and will probably be driving a card in 2 years. OYE!


This layout was created on a 12x12 piece of black cardstock and I wanted to had some white. Instead of using white as my base I layered it with a patterned paper and the black cardstock. I find it breaks it up as I used some neutral colors for my die cuts. I still added dimensional adhesive and created my layers.

 
I still have a few pieces of scrap paper left from this collection - enough to create a card or two for those teachers ;)

I hope you feel inspired to create today and perhaps we'll see your " Old School " layouts on social media! Tag us @SimpleStories_ and of course you can come follow me @KristineDavidson
