Scrapbook Layout created for Simple Stories   - BELIEVE -

The second layout of today's post at Simple Stories blog is all about my daughter, and the gorgeous Faith collection.  This is by far my favorite Simple Stories collection!;  it is just so beautiful, and can be used in so many paper crafts, from Bible journals to every day pictures.

I  love cut files, and Simple Stories has a large catalog  of designs available in the Silhouette Store.   The large shattered heart design was the inspiration for this layout.  I used the Silhouette software to add an offset to the image -this helps to add hand stitching on  the cuts.

The paint strokes in the "Shine"paper were the starting point for this project.  By aligning the cut file to the paper, i was able to color block the cuts to match the paint strokes.  A bit hand stitching just around the cuts that contain a single color was then added,   Some  thread was spooled around the edges of  the cuts that  aligned at the junction of two colors.  I just turn on Netflix, and spend some time stitching this background 😉

The 6x8 paper pad was used to back the cuts in the heart, and then glued to the "Shine" paper.   Before adding the picture, I used the 3x4 cards from the Cut-apart paper to layer the  picture, and added some of the 12x12 combo card stickers in between layers to form clusters around the picture.

 I love the Carpe Diem Sticker tablet, and the Clear Stickers, they have  a lot of small stickers than can be added used in scrapbook projects.  Just look at the small butterfly!

There is so many butterfly motives in the embellishments of this collection; so i  created a few larger  ones using a punch.  Two butterflies were punched from the papers -used to back the cut out-; a bit of machine stitching holds two  butterflies together.  I love how these add a sense of movement to the page.   

I love how this page turned out.   I even used the Bible verse on the die cut pieces as inspiration for my journal lines.

The two new collection, Faith, and Domestic Bliss, are the perfect complement to your  memory keeping, especially for those especial every day moments.   So check them out!

Thanks for stopping by today!  See you all soon!
