Autumn Blessing - Simple Stories Team Up October 17, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone it's Cathy!  I'm back with another layout for JustNick Studio.  This time we are teaming up with Simple Stories to create some fun layouts.  I received the gorgeous Hello Fall collection from Simple Stories.  Now while this is a fall collection I was trying to figure out a way to use it that wouldn't be a conventional fall layout.  I decided to use the lovely baby blue and floral paper from the collection for my jumping off point and that made me think about my youngest son, who was born last fall.  I thought this would be a perfect subject to merge with fall inspired papers and embellishments.  I cut out several of the leaf cluster file in white white cardstock and used a few of the other papers to back some of the leaves.  I backed my photos with a few other of the papers and then stuck it all down.  I loved all the project life cards that came with the collection so I decided to fussy cut out some of the images and sayings to add to my layout!  I love how this turned out, and that I was able to use the collection for a slightly different subject!
